Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.
Microdermabrasion is the ideal way to smooth and polish your way to perfect skin. Using diamond tipped wand, this gentle treatment deeply exfoliates the skin improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, stimulating collagen production, acne scarring, sun damage, reduces pore size and stretch marks on the body. Microdermabrasion restores natural luminosity and is ideal as pick me up for tired and stressed skin and makes the skin fresh and rejuvenated.
This is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure and requires no downtime after treatment therefore treatments can be performed in your lunch hour. Normal activities may be resumed immediately. Your skin will have a radiant glow and be free of irritation and loose particles. Treatments are performed using a Diamond tipped wand which removes the upper most layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips whilst at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away. No loose abrasives are used to contaminate you or the environment.
A course of 4 – 10 sessions at regular intervals of 10 – 14 days is recommended depending on the condition being treated and treatments typically last 15 minutes. To obtain optimum results, this treatment may also be used in conjunction with other treatments such as chemical peels and laser therapy or just as a quick pick-me-up for tired, dull skins.
There is very slight to no discomfort. It feels akin to stronger scrubbing.
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after treatment but for most people skin should return to normal in 10 – 30 minutes. Occasionally the skin may feel warm to the touch and be slightly "tingly" for up to 24 hours following treatment. This treatment is safe for the teenagers, pregnant women and lactating mothers as well.
After the first treatment the skin will have a fresh, radiant glow. Improvement will continue throughout the treatment program and generally fine lines, wrinkles and age spots become greatly diminished and many patients report that their skin seems to be softer, smoother and younger looking. Results can be maintained by home use products and maintenance sessions.
