WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
Microdermabrasion is a deeply effective treatment for renewing a fresh, young-looking glow to your skin. It’s one of the simplest and least disruptive skin treatments to have.
Microdermabrasion is suitable for the face and most areas of the body. Popular areas for treatment include the face, neck and chest.
HOW DOES MICRODERMABRASION WORK?
The microdermabrasion technique uses microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin but small enough not to do any damage or cause pain.
Not only does undergoing a microdermabrasion facial mean not having any artificial or even natural substances injected, but it also works in harmony with your body. Once the treatment has removed dead and tired cells, your body will work to replace them with fresh, healthier looking skin.
The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin’s surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new cells creating a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin. Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. To gain visible improvement we generally recommend a course of sessions because additional treatments cause an increase in circulation within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced. Not only can you return to your normal routine immediately after treatment, but you can even reapply your make-up right away.
WHO PERFORMS MICRODERMABRASION?

WHAT CAN MICRODERMABRASION TREAT?

Your consultation will be an opportunity to explore treatment solutions based on your exact needs.
Is this right for me?
Microdermabrasion isn’t suitable for darker skin tones as they are more prone to pigmentation. If you have a darker skin tone, your practitioner might suggest a Skin Peel or HydraFacial as a great alternative to achieve clearer, fresher skin.
If you have lighter skin and want a fresher, clearer, brighter look, microdermabrasion is for you.
