What is it?
Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals that are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of your skin. It uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation along with adjustable suction to sweep away the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. The procedure is non-invasive.
What results can you expect?
Microdermabrasion can be done on your back or decolletage to decrease the appearance of shallow acne scars, helping even out the texture of the skin. Removing the dead skin will aid in the penetration of the skin.
How many sessions are required?
You should notice some improvements straight away*, but we recommend a full course of 6 treatments (one session per week) for optimum results.
How does it work?
The microdermabrasion process itself involves your caregiver moving a hand-held tube across your back or decolletage; the tube blows abrasive particles against your skin and simultaneously vacuums up the used particles and loosened skin cells. When the process is complete, the treated skin may be covered with lotions or sunscreen.
An estimate of 20 to 30 minutes
Does it hurt?
The treatment is not painful; it may be slightly uncomfortable.
During and just after the procedure the skin may show a bit of redness, however this effect usually disappears very quickly. No special post-peel skin treatment is required, the skin easily recovers itself. Avoid visiting pool, sauna and sun beds as well as playing active sports for at least 12 hours after the procedure.
