Microdermabrasion is an increasingly popular exfoliation technique and an excellent alternative to costlier and more involved procedures like plastic surgery or botox injections. It has medical benefits, with the potential to alleviate the symptoms of acne, vascular lesions and fragile capillaries, among other complaints.
Improve skin quickly
Essentially, the technique is the application of inert crystals to an area of skin. The procedure targets only the outermost layer. The loss of skin cells triggers a response from the body, which rushes to produce more, improving the health and overall look of the skin.
Mild swelling and redness are the likeliest side effects, and these should clear up after a few days.
Although home-kits are available they cannot be medical grade, and therefore are not as effective as a session at a skin clinic. Application techniques are also more advanced; if you are seeking treatment for an area of skin close to the eyes or nose, a trained professional will the have equipment to apply the technique safely.
In the London area, Miravue Skin clinic situated in Uxbridge, offers medical grade microdermabrasion over a recommended six treatment course.
