What is it all about?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, virtually painless lunchtime treatment that refreshes the appearance of tired, dull-looking skin. A diamond-tipped device sloughs off the dead surface layers of the skin, and promotes rejuvenation by stimulating collagen synthesis. Tone, texture and colour of the skin are improved, achieving a smoother, more youthful glow. This treatment is beneficial for dull skin, enlarged pores, fine lines, mild acne scars and pigmentation. It also is known to improve circulation and lymph drainage.
It only treats the outermost layer of the skin so the skin is in no way wounded or abraded as with certain other aesthetic procedures, such as laser and deep chemical peels.
After the treatment, the skin might be slightly red and swollen but this usually lasts for only a day. Ensure your skin remains moisturised and apply a good quality SPF on a daily basis.
