  • Whiteheads
  • Superficial age spots and Hyper-pigmentation
  • Excessive oiliness or dry skin
  • Scaring from Acne
Benefits
  • Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types
  • A single Microdermabrasion treatment can remove as many dead skin cells from the outer layer of skin which a three glycolic treatments would require
  • The treatment encourages better cellular renewal which improves elasticity, overall texture and reduces signs of ageing
  • The vacuum and medical grade crystal controls are flexible, so patients can tailor their treatment for their individual skin type needs
  • Instant, visible results as the treatment does not require any recovery time
  • Following Microdermabrasion the skin is in a better condition to absorb anti-ageing and acne creams
  • Microdermabrasion is much more effective than having Skin Peels, so often patients usually combine the two treatments to get the best results.
  • Microdermabrasion can also be used in combination with Laser Rejuvenation treatment


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a Non Surgical method of rejuvenation by means of mechanical skin exfoliation using medical grade crystals rather than chemicals or a laser. The treatment can be used on the face, chest, back or shoulders and has no down-time.

Microdermabrasion - Is it right for me?

Microdermabrasion is an ideal treatment 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, excessive oiliness or dry skin. Prior to your treatment you will have a free consultation where all your questions are answered and you are assessed for your suitability to proceed. 
Please note, Microdermbrasion is not a suitable treatment for patients who have visible broken blood vessels.

How is a Microdermabrasion treatment performed?

The skin is cleansed and the prep solution is applied prior to treatment. A highly controlled flow of medical grade crystals is then passed over the skin using a hand held device. These crystals, delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin's surface are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells with it. This mechanical exfoliation process improves both the tone and texture of the skin and also reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft and smooth. At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the treatment, promoting new collagen, thickening the dermis and improving the resistance to the effects of ageing. After the procedure, the treatment will finish with the application of anti-oxidant moisturiser and SPF 25 to hydrate and provide sun protection for your skin.

Will I experience any pain during my treatment?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, painless procedure, although you may experience slight discomfort for a short time as the 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, you can discuss this with us at your consultation.

How long does Microdermabrasion treatment take?

The average time for a treatment is 30 minutes or 45 minutes depending on the area treated. 

How often do I need to have Microdermabrasion treatments?

We recommend that you book a course of four to six Microdermabrasion treatments, to have every two weeks and then maintain top-up treatments every four to six weeks. Due to the incredible results, patients often want to continue having treatments, so a maintenance course will be discussed with you. 

What do I need to consider after I've had my treatment?

After having your Microdermabrasion treatment you may experience slight redness in the first 48 hours. Some patients, dependent on skin type may experience slight shedding but this is a natural side effect and nothing to be worried about. We recommend patients to avoid heat treatments, such as saunas, sun beds, hot baths and vigorous exercise 24 hours after having treatment.

Do men have Microdermabrasion? 

We are seeing growing numbers of men booking Microdermabrasion, it is increasingly becoming more common for men to want to look after their skin and is no longer seen as taboo.  

How much does a Microdermabrasion treatment cost?
