Microdermabrasion

MicrodermabrasionMicrodermabrasion stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen using a fine, inert (micro) crystal to progressively abrade the skin’s surface. It is used for skin resurfacing and treating a range of skin abnormalities. This procedure removes dead and flaking skin cells and stimulated the production of fresh, young skin cells and collagen.

Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on the face, neck and chest. It is also beneficial for patients with darker skin types.

Treatments take approx. 30 minutes to exfoliate the neck and face and another 30 minutes to cool and nourish the skin with a soft gel mask.
A minimum of six treatments is recommended for long-lasting results. These treatments are usually performed every 10 days. After the first six sessions, you should receive treatments once a month to maintain your youthful-looking skin.

For some clients results are more visible than others. You will notice an immediate improvement after your first treatment. Your skin will have a fresh pink glow and smoother texture. Improvements continue throughout your treatment program.
