Microdermabrasion gently removes epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin imperfections. It is especially effective for skin ageing. The powerful peeling action triggers the skin’s repair mechanism to produce healthy epidermal tissue growth, improving skin tone and elasticity.

Microdermabrasion FAQ

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive treatment that gently removes epidermis cells to restore a youthful healthy glow.

How does the treatment work?

Real diamonds are high quality, precise, gentle abrasives combined with a suction that helps to slough off dead skin cells leaving a more youthful complexion. They are less irritating than the traditional crystals and are hypoallergenic.

Is it painful?

The treatment is performed with little discomfort. At the most, sensitive patients might experience a slight sensation resembling a light sunburn. After treatment, the skin will have a pink glow, and you can resume your normal activities almost immediately. The procedure can be done on a lunch hour.

Which skin problems can be treated?

This system gradually abrades the epidermal cells to treat a vast array of skin problems:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Uneven and granular skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Blackheads and comedones
  • Superficial scars
  • Some stretch marks

Is it Safe?

Microdermabrasion offers a gentler alternative to more traumatic resurfacing treatments. It does not involve trauma or bleeding. The treatment is executed slowly and progressively, removing only the superficial layers of the epidermis to reveal a youthful complexion and glow. Your therapist has total control and works under the strictest hygiene standards.

How long does it take?

Each treatment takes 30 minutes and when combined with other anti-ageing treatments may take between 45 mins to 1 hr.

How many treatments will I need?

Age and skin condition determine the number of treatments required to achieve optimum results. For most skin disorders a minimum of 6 treatments is recommended. Results can be seen in both texture and appearance of the skin after just one session. An initial series of treatments, combined with maintenance sessions, will result in better skin quality, and may postpone the first lifting treatments for some years.

Can microdermabrasion be used anywhere on the body?

There are virtually no areas of the body that would not benefit from this procedure.
