Microdermabrasion is an effective, yet non-invasive way to resurface and refine the skin. It improves skin suffering from sun damage, neglect, acne, pigmentation, stress and environmental factors, while also providing a perfect age management program. A course of six sessions is recommended for maximum results.
What does Micro-dermabrasion do?
Micro-dermabrasion gently removes dead skin cells from the skin revealing younger, fresher looking skin while at the same time unclogging pores and stimulating new cell growth.
How long does a treatment take?
Micro-dermabrasion can take as little as half an hour depending on the skin’s condition and the area being treated.
Is Micro-dermabrasion painful?
No micro-dermabrasion is not painful. Your trained therapist will ensure that you do not experience any discomfort when undergoing a micro-dermabrasion treatment.
How will my skin look immediately after treatment?
Your skin will look amazing. The texture will be instantly smoother, your pores will be clean and blackheads will be removed. Overall your skin will look cleaner and feel smoother. It may be slightly flushed and feel warm after the stimulation from the micro-dermabrasion. This flushing is called erythema (increase of blood flow) which brings in more nutrients, vitamins and especially oxygen. Oxygen helps repair the skin and stimulate collagen. You can return to your normal activities almost immediately.
How many treatments will I require?
Your skin will feel smoother and cleaner after just one treatment. To experience maximum results a course of six treatments at two weekly intervals is usually recommended. Your skin therapist will discuss the number of treatments required to address your particular skin type at the time of your initial consultation.
