WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that gently exfoliates the skin. The treatment is fast and easy, and requires no downtime from normal activities.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Microdermabrasion is a non invasive skin resurfacing procedure which employs an abrasive substance (aluminium oxide) that gently exfoliates the upper most layers of the skin. The abrasion gently removes dead skin cell and skin debris also stimulating cell renewal, detoxification and the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that involves the use of vacuum pressure as well as an exfoliation technique. It is a procedure where fine micro Aluminium Oxide Crystals, usually driven by vacuum pressure are used to exfoliate the surface of the skin.
The exfoliation gently lifts and removes dead skin cells and skin debris, whilst at the same time causing stimulation within
the superficial dermis to renew and repair collagen and elastin fibres.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
To begin the treatment your therapist will discuss your concerns and a consultation will take place. Your skin will then be cleansed thoroughly and an exfoliating mask will then be applied. The mask will be left on the skin for 10 minutes. Your therapist will remove the mask and remove any excess moisture on the skin.
The Microdermabrasion treatment will begin. You will feel gentle stroking movements over one side of the face, this might have a slight suction. Your therapist will check with you to ensure the pressure is comfortable. The same procedure will be carried out on the other side of the face. Once the Microdermabrasion is complete, your therapist will remove any of the remaining crystals on the skin.
A hydrating mask will be applied to the skin to help reduce the the level of post treatment redness. The mask will be left on for 10 minutes and then removed, followed on by a moisturizer and eye cream.
