Some refer to it as their Holy Grail, a half an hour face-lift and glowing skin miracle worker, but if you’re still wondering whether this treatment is for you and your skin type then read on!
What exactly is Microdermabrasion
It’s a mouthful that’s for sure! Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that involves the use of a diamond tipper want that gently polishes and clears away dead and damaged skin. This is followed with a suction device, which removed blackheads and carries away the exfoliated skin. The process entirely replenishes and nourishes your skin, leaving it supple, glowing and blemish clear. Our diamond tipper treatment is far more superior to the common microdermabrasion using crystals, leading to a more uniform exfoliation without leaving a crystalline residue on your face.
Is Microdermabrasion safe?
Absolutely! It’s a safe, painless and quick procedure. Many people choose Microdermabrasion over chemical peels and laser treatments as it is generally safe and more cost-effective. The procedure is pain free and may leave your skin slightly tender and red afterwards – much like after a deep exfoliation.
Does Microdermabrasion work?
As with anything, consistency is key. If you stick to your skin therapists recommended plan, you will notice a change in the clarity, elasticity and texture of your skin. You will definitely notice results even after a single treatment, but to get all the benefits of Microdermabrasion, a series of treatments, every four weeks is your best bet.
What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?
The procedure itself stimulates blood flow, which increase the nutrition delivered to skin cells. This in turn improves cell production, which improves your skin’s elasticity and texture. This means that Microdermabrasion may be able to help with scarring, clogged pores, pigmentation and fine lines. If however you have skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema or fragile capillaries or an active sunburn, the procedure is not recommended as it can further irritate your skin.
