In today’s blog we’ll be looking at microdermabrasion, how it works and what results patients can expect to achieve.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that uses specially designed microcrystals to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells helping to rejuvenate the top layer of skin, which in turn helps to promote the natural growth of collagen underneath the surface. This treatment is designed to improve the appearance, texture and feel of the skin on the face.
What does the treatment involve?
During the treatment medical grade micro crystals are worked uniformly over the skin to cleanse the pores and target problem areas, this process activates the natural production of new skin cell growth helping to improve the appearance of the skin. Patients with minor acne and blackheads around the upper forehead and sides of the nose can benefit greatly from this treatment.
Is it painful and is their downtime?
Microdermabrasion is not painful at all. Many of our clients compare it to a getting an exfoliating facial treatment and even describe it as a ‘relaxing’ treatment. After Microdermabrasion you can return to your normal day-to-day routine with no downtime at all, which is what makes it a great treatment ahead of an event.
What results can I expect?
We recommend a course of 3-6 treatments to achieve the best results, however even after a single treatment, clients report their skin feeling softer, fresher and rejuvenated. It’s a great treatment to have in the build-up to an event, with clients reporting feeling like their skin was ‘glowing’ after a completed course of treatments.
