A cosmetic treatment without the fuss, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical method of clearing and smoothing the skin for men and women. It is suitable for all and any skin types and can be used on skin across the body – including the face.
Microdermabrasion is used to smooth away fine lines, clear up acne-prone skin and minimise large pores, along with a number of other skin issues, including the scars left from a tattoo removal.
One of the biggest advantages of microdermabrasion is that the patient undergoing the treatment needs next to no recovery time. They can be up and about almost immediately, and the skin will be completely back to its usual self within 24 hours.
Microdermabrasion is similar to giving your skin a light sanding: it is misted with tiny crystals that remove the dead outer layer of cells, revealing the glowing skin beneath. Essentially, it is an industrial-strength exfoliation which stimulates the soft new skin beneath, leaving an appearance of youth and health. Results can be seen in most immediately after the first treatment.
It removes the dead layer of skin, and stimulates the cells below, encouraging them to take in nutrients and create collagen, therefore resisting further the effects of aging on the skin.
