Is your skin dull, do you notice fine lines, pigmentation and uneven skin tone? Do you have blemishes or acne scarring? If you haven’t tried a microdermabrasion treatment before, it is worth considering. The treatment is quick, painless and there is no downtime. In addition you will see results with this treatment very quickly. So if you need a lift and a bit of a brighten up, this may be the treatment for you.
A microdermabrasion treatment involves tiny crystals projected onto the skin to remove the outer layer of your skin. The vacuum action of the machine then pulls and raises a small section of skin to work on, it creates mild swelling and brings some of the impurities to the surface, it then collects the used crystals and dead skin for disposal. It is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation treatment that leaves the skin looking brighter and feeling smoother. For optimum results we recommend a course of 3 – 5 treatments at 10 – 14 day intervals. As the treatment can cause photosensitivity it is important to wear a factor 30 SPF every day.
Microdermabrasion is loved by celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow who often opt for this treatment before a red carpet event. In addition to the face, microdermabrasion can also be used on the décolleté, arms and hands.
There are certain medications that would contraindicate you from having this treatment. Call for further advice.
