by our qualified skin care professional.

We offer Microdermabrasion facials, a non-surgical method of rejuvenation by means of mechanical skin exfoliation without chemicals or laser. A deeply effective treatment for renewing and refreshing, to give a smooth, younger looking skin. The least disruptive skin treatment, it is ideal even for those with sensitive skin.

What is a Microdermabrasion Facial?

scroll-grey

The microdermabrasion technique works with microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt tired skin cells which cause dull looking skin, but small enough not to do cause damage, discomfort or pain. The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin’s surface, removing just the top layer of skin cells.

The technology reveals new, living cells leaving a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin.

A Microdermabrasion Facial is great for treating:

After a Microdermabrasion Facial

scroll-grey

Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. Generally, a course of treatments is required to gain visible improvement. Your skin however will improve with additional treatments as increased circulation is noted within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.

The only real side effect is possible temporary redness of the skin, which soon fades.

Microdermabrasion FAQs

IS MICRODERMABRASION RIGHT FOR ME?
Microdermabrasion is an ideal for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and wrinkles, sun damaged and uneven skin tone, acne prone skin, blackheads, whiteheads, superficial age spots and hyperpigmentation and excessive oiliness or dry skin. Prior to your treatment you will have a free consultation where all your questions are answered by the facial specialist and you will be assessed for your suitability to proceed. Please note, it is not a suitable treatment for patients who have certain skin conditions.
WILL I FEEL ANY PAIN?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, painless procedure, although you may experience slight discomfort for a short time as the aluminium crystals are delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin’s surface. However, the controls of the hand held device and vacuum capacity are flexible, so you can opt for a less intense treatment.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The average time for a treatment is 30 minutes.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DIRECTLY AFTER TREATMENT?
  • You may have some redness and your skin may feel warm/tighter than usual. This will start to improve over the following 2-3 hours, subsiding normally within 24 hours.
  • It is natural for some patients, dependent on skin type, to experience a slight shedding, this is a normal side effect and nothing to be worried about.
  • Mineral-based makeup can be applied directly after treatment, but we do advice clients to wait at least 24 hours to apply any other type of base make-up to enable the products to work uninhibited.
WHAT IS YOUR AFTER TREATMENT ADVICE?
  • Avoid saunas, exercise, and hot baths/showers until the redness has gone.
  • Avoid intensive sunlight and artificial UV exposure for at least 2-3 weeks after the procedure.
  • Your skin may become dry 3-5 days following the treatment which normally subsides in a few days.
  • Always make sure that your hands are thoroughly clean when touching your face post procedure. Use tepid water and a non-irritant cleanser to cleanse the face following the treatment, until the redness has gone.
  • It is recommended that makeup is not applied for 24 hours after the procedure where possible.
  • Treatment intervals are recommended every 10-14 days with a course of treatments, and maintenance monthly, or as required.
HOW OFTEN DO i NEED TREATMENTS?
We recommend that you book a course of 3 Microdermabrasion treatments, to be carried out every two weeks and then maintain top-up treatments every four-six weeks. Because of our incredible results, most patients often want to continue having treatments, so a maintenance course will be discussed, along with products you can use at home to enhance your results.
