Microdermabrasion

Regular environmental exposure takes its toll on skin over time. Exposure to the sun, extreme weather or pollution will lead to gradual deterioration of skin quality and the appearance of wrinkles, lines and unwanted skin pigmentation. Microdermabrasion halts the deterioration by using a microcrystal spray that removes old skin cells and allows the regeneration of new and healthy skin. Greater production of collagen and elastin is also encouraged. Microdermabrasion is a relatively gentle procedure compared to regular dermabrasion for treating deeper facial issues.

Who is suitable for microdermabrasion?

People desiring an improved appearance by reducing facial wrinkles, lines, sun damage, pigmentation and uneven skin texture. It's important to have realistic expectations as microdermabrasion is relatively mild and won't correct deep facial issues.

Are there risks with microdermabrasion?

Non-allergenic crystals are used to treat the skin. The procedure is safely performed during a little downtime, with a return to work possible soon after. People with sensitive skin can experience a small degree of irritation or a slight warming sensation. The risk of sunburn is greater on new skin, so it's advisable to wear sunblock outdoors.

What is the microdermabrasion procedure?

Tiny microcrystals are streamed onto the skin where they begin to exfoliate and clean the skin surface. Several sessions are required to produce multiple new layers of healthy skin. Collagen and elastin production is also encouraged, resulting in a natural, healthy and glowing skin tone.

How do I recover after a microdermabrasion treatment?

The procedure is often referred to as a 'lunch hour' treatment. Microdermabrasion involves little discomfort, is convenient and fast, and doesn't involve any medication or side-effects that could impact work performance. The treatment can take up to one hour, and improvements will be noticeable after the first treatment.

How will my appearance benefit with microdermabrasion?

After the very first microdermabrasion session you should notice an improvement in skin colour, tone and lustre. Your face will look progressively fresher and smoother with every subsequent treatment.
