The outermost layer of human skin is composed of dead skin cells which form a natural barrier hindering active ingredients to penetrate the skin. Microdermabrasion provides a safe and controlled abrasion of these dead skin cells.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, safe and gentle procedure that deeply exfoliates and polishes the skin to stimulate new cell growth. Using a gentle vacuuming system and diamond tips, microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores. The treatment is safe and painless. The skin will look younger and healthier and feel beautifully smooth. Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types with immediate results.
How long does a treatment take?
Microdermabrasion can take 45 to 90 minutes, depending on your skin condition and the area being treated. There is no downtime after the treatment.
How many treatments will I require?
Your skin will feel smoother and cleaner after just one treatment. To enjoy the maximum benefits a course of treatments is recommended. Your skin care professional will discuss with you the most suitable treatment program for your skin.
Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment for:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Minor scar revision
- Rejuvenation of dull, tired skin
