What is microdermabrasion?

20th July 2015

What is it?

Microdermabrasion is one of the most well-known rejuvenation treatments on the market, with celebrities raving about the fantastic results despite it being an extremely simple procedure. It is renowned as being one of the least disruptive skin treatments on the market, but what does it actually entail?

The microdermabrasion technique is a physical exfoliation which works with microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin. But small enough not to do any damage or even cause discomfort or pain. The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin's surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new, living cells leaving a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin.

A gentle treatment

Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. Generally a course of sessions is required to gain visible improvement. Your skin however will improve with additional treatments as increased circulation is noted within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.

Not only does undergoing a microdermabrasion facial mean not having any artificial or even natural substances injected, but it also works in harmony with your body. Once the treatment has removed dead, damaged and tired cells, your body will work to replace them with fresh, healthier looking skin. Microdermabrasion is a comfortable and painless procedure; the smooth microcrystal's we use do not cause any unpleasant sensations. Microdermabrasion treatment can be used to improve fine lines, superficial blemishes and marks, congested skin, mild pigmentary problems and generally become part of an anti-ageing treatment routine. Your consultation will be an opportunity to explore treatment solutions based on your exact needs.
