This highly effective treatment is used to reduce and gradually remove fine lines and wrinkles, enlarge pores, sun damage, acne scars, black heads, minor acne, surgical scars and superficial age spots.
You will have immediate results after just one treatment. A minimum of 6 treatments is recommended to achieve the best results.
COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT MICRODERMABRASION
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a scientific method, using fine, inert (micro) crystals to progressively abrade the skin’s surface. It is used for skin resurfacing and treating a range of skin abnormalities. This treatment is helping men and women experience remarkable improvements in their skin texture, regardless of skin colour.
With our microdermabrasion skin treatment program, you can see immediate improvements in your skin’s appearance. This unique approach removes dead and flaking skin cells and stimulates the production of fresh, young skin cells and collagen.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work and What Results Can I Expect?
Micro-crystals are vacuumed through a delicate hand piece, which is held at a precise angle to the skin, producing a skin- polishing peel. In as little as 30-40 minutes, this gentle abrasion technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Treatments are applied through a course of weekly sessions. Microdermabrasion enhances the skin’s condition by stimulating collagen production and does what no other available non-surgical treatment can do in combating the signs of aging skin. Most importantly, it is safe to use on all skin types and colours.
Age spots and fine wrinkles are reduced, pores are unclogged, acne is diminished, collagen is stimulated and a more uniform tone is evident. Most clients report that their skin is visibly softer, tighter, smoother and younger-looking, even right after the first treatment.
How Soon Will I See Results?
You will notice an immediate improvement after your first treatment. Your skin will have a fresh glow and smoother texture. Improvements continue throughout your treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Although fantastic results are achieved with the first session, a minimum of six treatments is recommended for long-lasting results. These treatments are usually performed every two weeks. After the six sessions, you should receive treatments once a month to maintain your youthful-looking skin.
Who Should Consider Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabraion is right for all skin types and for anyone interested in minimizing the appearance of: scarring, fine lines, pigmentation problems, uneven skin tones, dull, lifeless and sun damaged skin. Microdermabrasion is not recommended to anyone who has taken the acne drug Accutane within the past six months because there is a risk of creating scar or injury in someone who has taken Accutane.
Following your microdermabrasion treatment your esthetician will apply sunscreen following the procedure. You can resume your daily activities immediately after your microdermabrasion treatment. It is recommended you avoid sun exposure on the treated area for at least 24 hours.
