Spotlight on: Microdermabrasion
21 February 2018

You’ve read it on just about every treatment menu, some of the biggest names in Hollywood sing its praises and it’s been touted as the “ultimate facial exfoliation”. But what exactly is microdermabrasion? With so many high-tech treatments available at the moment, it’s easy to get confused. So, we’ve broken it all down for you!

What is it?
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells to reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. Using advanced medical grade technology to exfoliate the epidermis of the skin, this process also stimulates collagen production for plumper, firmer skin and aids the skin’s natural rejuvenation process.

What does it treat?
Microdermabrasion is perfect for the treatment of fine lines, pigmentation, congestion, breakouts and improving overall tone and texture of dull and lacklustre skin. So, no matter what skin concerns you have, microdermabrasion is suitable for just about anything

The crystal resurfacing process improves the overall texture of the skin leaving skin feeling fresh and smooth with a vibrant glow.

Who is it suitable for?
Just about anyone. Seek medical advice first if you have a pre-existing skin condition such as rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, active sunburn, herpes, lupus, open sores, psoriasis, fragile capillaries or widespread acne.

Are there any side effects?
The potential side effects of microdermabrasion are minimal as this is a very safe procedure. Expect a little bit of redness post-treatment, but unlike stronger peels, you won’t experience any peeling or flaking of the skin.

Does it hurt?
Microdermabrasion is not a painful procedure at all. Skin may feel a little sensitive afterwards but the most you will feel during the treatment is a slight sucking sensation, like a little mini vacuum cleaner going over the skin to clear out those pores!
