Rejuvenate your skin
As we age, our skin pigmentation can become uneven. For those who feel self-conscious about their changing skin, microdermabrasion is an effective treatment that leaves your skin looking rejuvenated.
This is an innovative, non-invasive treatment which gently exfoliates the skin, to remove the dead skin cells resulting in a brighter, smoother complexion. It also improves the appearance of dull, congested skin, plus improves sun damaged skin, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring and melasma.
This treatment can be performed in isolation or it can be incorporated into one of our many prescription facials, specifically targeted to tackle your own skin concerns.
What to expect
Using a handheld device, our friendly Aesthetician will spray tiny crystals onto the skin of the target area. As these crystals are vacuumed away, they gently exfoliate the skin’s surface, removing the outer layer. Once the treatment is complete, appropriate cosmeceutical products will be applied to your skin to keep it hydrated and protected.
Other than the lovely natural results, another really positive aspect of this treatment is that it’s pain-free. However, if you do experience any discomfort during the treatment, let your Aesthetician know and they can adjust the intensity or slow it down.
Due to the gentle nature of the treatment, there is minimal downtime afterwards. You’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities immediately, just ensure you keep your skin hydrated and use gentle skincare products.
After Microdermabrasion treatment, your skin will feel irresistibly smooth and there should be less variance in pigmentation. It can also stimulate the production of collagen, aiding elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines. Mild scarring from acne should be less obvious and pore size should reduce. Dead skin cells will be removed, making your skin feel cleaner and look brighter than ever before.
The Microdermabrasion procedure takes just around 30 to 40 minutes in total.
The frequency of treatments you will need is completely dependent on your individual needs and skincare goals. If you’re looking for improvement of a specific skin problem, you generally need around six to ten treatments that are scheduled two weeks apart. Nevertheless our Aesthetician will design a treatment plan that is entirely suited to your individual needs.
Once you have had your treatment, there is little to no downtime thanks to it’s non-invasive nature. You may see some redness and a slight sensitivity in the treated areas, although this usually calms down within a few hours. You are able to carry on with your normal activities immediately after receiving your treatment.
Microdermabrasion treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, blemishes and marks plus it improves dull or congested skin along with mild pigmentation problems. Generally it’s an effective treatment to build into your wider skin care routine.
We understand that the term ‘abrasion’ can be off-putting but, rest assured, Microdermabrasion is effectively a pain-free experience. Just be mindful that you might find your first treatment slightly uncomfortable and your skin may feel quite tight and warm afterwards so please don’t be afraid to speak up during your treatment, as our Aesthetician can adjust the treatment to your needs.
Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment for creating rejuvenated skin and is suitable for most areas of the body. However, the most popular areas for treatment include the face, neck, and chest.
Microdermabrasion is safe and most side effects are very short-lived. For a few days after your treatment, you may notice subtle redness and increased sensitivity of the skin to sunlight. After the procedure, use sun protection as this will help to ensure the best results and reduce the risk of side effects. Those with particularly sensitive skin may need to take care to avoid irritation.
Microdermabrasion isn’t recommended if you have a skin condition such as current active acne, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis or herpes and you shouldn’t have the treatment if you currently have sunburn or any open sores.
