Here at Snowberry Lane Clinic we strive to lead the way in providing the most highly advanced cosmetic treatments for our patients. One area we work particularly hard to fulfil is our commitment to minimally-invasive treatments. For over a decade now, our clinic has been at the forefront when it comes to giving our patients the chance to make positive improvements in their lives with minimised risks and downtime.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a skin softening procedure that uses micro-crystals to improve the appearance, texture and feel of the skin. It is commonly used on the face, an area which itself has softer skin than other areas of the body. The crystals aim to rejuvenate the top layer of skin on the face, and in turn promote the natural growth of collagen underneath the surface.
How does it work?
Unlike traditional facial exfoliators we try at home or at a salon, which only work to remove dirt from the very top of our skin, Microdermabrasion is a thorough and much more intense way of cleaning our pores. Imagine rubbing a wipe over the face. We know that it removes makeup and dirt from the surface layer, but it doesn’t do much to really get in our pores and ensure they’re naturally clean and healthy.
Passing medical grade crystals over the pores allows for uniform cleansing and targeting of problem areas. A natural activation of new skin cell growth is always our main aim when performing this treatment. A gentle abrasion of the upper surface gets the body to react naturally and safely. Patients with minor acne and blackheads around the upper forehead and sides of the nose can benefit greatly from this treatment.
What are the results?
We commonly find that patients with fine lines and blemishes benefit most from Microdermabrasion, sometimes noticing visible results from the first treatment session. Because the skin is not being damaged or broken, downtime is minimised.

Hyperpigmentation is where the pigments that control skin colour, overwork and leave you with patches that are caused through overproduction of melanin. They aren’t harmful, but can be a knock to your confidence if you are experiencing it in an exposed area such as your face or neck.
How can we help?
The main treatments we have for brown spots and hyperpigmentation skin are microdermabrasion and Obagi.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that uses medically designed crystals to gently exfoliate the skin, removing old skin cells and revealing rejuvenated, glowing skin cells beneath.
Obagi programmes use medically designed skin care products that increase cellular turnover. Deep layers of undamaged skin tissue are encouraged to come to the surface to help bring uniformity to the skin. The Obagi Blue Peel is able to not only give skin a refreshed and youthful appearance but is a great treatment for addressing Hyperpigmentation by rebalancing the levels of oestrogen in the face.
And if you’d like to find out more about getting help with Hyperpigmentation, please give us a call on 01225 700072 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
