Microdermabrasion treatment employs a stream of non-allergenic crystals to eliminate your skin’s external layers of dead cells.
A handset is employed to direct the stream of crystal over the treated area & wherever necessary, target specific zones.
The handset then utilises a mild suction to draw away the crystal & skin debris to reveal your new & enhanced complexion.
It is chemical-free & non-invasive yet accomplishes amazing results revealing younger, healthier-looking skin from the first treatment. The skin’s appearance is further enhanced through increased collagen & elastin production as your body produces a new layer of skin.

This is a sign that the procedure is taking effect. This temporary reaction will subside, & great improvements will be seen over subsequent treatments.
When is Microdermabrasion not suitable?
Microdermabrasion is not a suitable treatment during pregnancy or for Rosacea.
How does microdermabrasion work?
First, the skin is thoroughly cleansed & steamed. Steam softens the upper layers of skin & opens the pores. Utilizing a handheld tool, a mild abrasion will be targeted to particular areas of the skin. Simultaneously, the device will clean up any excess crystals while stimulating circulation to the epidermal layers of the skin. This transports nutrients & oxygen to the epidermis, which is void of blood vessels.
The crystals are responsible for eliminating dead skin cells. This prevents bacteria & debris from being trapped under the surface & restores vibrancy to the skin. Combined, the treatment stimulates collagen & elastin production. It stimulates cellular regeneration & promotes blood flow to the epidermal layers of the skin.
What should I ask my microdermabrasion consultant?
Depending on the state of your skin & the desired results, the number of procedures will vary. You should consult your health history to determine if Microdermabrasion is the right treatment for you or not. Your provider will determine your skin type & help you set reasonable & achievable goals. Be sure to ask about contraindications & before & after photos.
How does the treatment feel?
Microdermabrasion does not demand anaesthesia, although it may be mildly irritating. Tightness & heat are natural effects & quickly disappears. The sensation is often compared to a cats’ tongue licking your face.
How long do the results last?
Lasting effects are dependant on proper skincare. Additional treatments will renew your youthful appearance. A series of 6 treatments over a few months is recommended for best results, followed by regular maintenance treatments.
