Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance. If the skin does not shed properly, dead cells settle on the surface causing clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, breakouts and a dull apperarnce.
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion works in two ways:
Correction: The speed of the crystal flow causes an abrasive action that gently removes he surface layer of the skin, allowing smoother, fresher skin to emerge.
Stimulation: The vacuum action helps to stimulate microcirculation, increasing stimulates formation of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity.
Who can benefit from a microdermabrasion treatment?
Men and women of any skin type or colour. Anyone with aged, congested, dry, thickened, blemished, dull and sun damaged skin will experience a rejuvenated and refreshed complexion. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture will also be improved.
How many treatments are required?
A series of treatments may be needed. Treatments take 20-45 minutes depending on treatment goals. Many clients continue on with follow up sessions to maintain there desired look.
Are there any aftercare recommendation?
Microdermabraion has no downtime. Most clients can return immediately to their daily routine. We advise the use of moisturizers and sunscreen, Physician grade moisturizing products and sunscreen are available to purchase at all times.
