Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment, which allows for deep exfoliation of the skin, without the use of chemicals or substantial down-time. In addition to the exfoliation, new collagen formation is stimulated, meaning there is a longer-term benefit as well as the immediate effect seen. It is suitable for both men and women, and can safely be used during pregnancy. It offers improvements in skin texture and tone, can treat congestion, and is an alternative to chemical peels for the removal of dry or scaly skin. There are no needles, and it is a very well-tolerated treatment. A patch test is not required.
What is involved?
Your skin is carefully assessed, and a detailed history of your skin concerns taken. It is then cleansed and the microdermabrasion device passed gently over the skin. A fine jet of medical-grade crystals are vacuumed against your skin, gently lifting and separating dead skin cells from the fresh, healthy tissue that lies beneath. We often combine this treatment with a mild fruit acid peel, to enhance and prolong the benefits of the treatment.
