- Shallow Acne scarring
- Blackheads & blocked pores
- Sun damaged skin
- Dull or patchy skin
- Reducing and smoothing fine lines & wrinkles, producing a smoother, more rejuvenated skin.
What happens during a Microdermabrasion Facial?
Microdermabrasion is mechanical exfoliation, performed by passing a hand held device that uses a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade crystals over the skin.
These crystals, delivered at high velocity onto the skin surface, are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells with it.
This reveals the newer, more vibrant skin below, making it feel and look smoother, healthier and more youthful.
The benefits of a Microdermabrasion Facial...
- Leaves skin with a fresher, more glowing look.
- Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarse textured skin.
- Makes it easy for high-tech skin care products to actually penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
Apply sunscreen and stay out of the sun after your treatment as you will burn more easily.
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for:
Sensitive skin, skin that easily reddens, or skin with acne breakouts.
Clients who have been taking Roaccutane in the last 6 months.
Clients suffering from active herpes lesions, malignant tumors, keratosis, active rosacea or weeping acne
How many Microdermabrasion treatments will I need?
You'll see the difference even after just one facial, however for more problematic skin concerns a course may be recommended of around 4-8 sessions spaced 10-14 days apart.
With regular treatments, the skin increases its collagen and elastin formation, to give you a naturally firmer and more rejuvenated look.
What's more, the gentle vacuum action gives the facial muscles a mini 'workout' each time, providing an immediate lifting effect and an ongoing improvement in tone and texture.
