Things to know about microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a reasonably quick facial treatment, I also call it Rapid Results, because it is after all what everyone wants isn’t it?

Perfect for:

  • sun damage
  • lines and wrinkles
  • breakouts
  • promoting even skin tone
  • pigmentation

Most people have heard of a microdermabrasion treatment but not everyone knows what it entails.

We have a few variations of this treatment but basically when you book in for a standalone microdermabrasion treatment your skin will be cleansed with the appropriate cleanser for your skin type and then we will start the microdermabrasion treatment. We use the Clairderm Medical Saphire machine which has a long wand on it that spits out tiny little crystals that feel slightly abrasive on the skin. I think it feels like a mini vacuum cleaner, cleaning up the surface of your face. In fact this is basically what the procedure is for; it removes dead skin cells, by buffing the surface layer of your skin with a stream of tiny crystals and pulling dead skin cells and impurities up to the surface. Your therapist can adjust the suction to make it more or less abrasive feeling, depending on what you and your skin can cope with.

We finish the treatment by infusing vitamins into the skin to heal and leave the skin calm and hydrated.

Microdermabrasion is suitable for most skin types and all ages. After the treatment, you will walk out feeling like you have the cleanest of clean skins and that all the moisture and goodness of the world has found its way back into your skin. If your skin really needs to it may flake a little a day or so after the treatment.

A microdermabrasion is recommended either as a course of treatments when you start out or once a month to keep your skin nice and fresh.
