This treatment, suitable for all skin types, is a safe and effective way of exfoliating
the skin without using any chemicals or laser.
The machine effects a deep, cleansing massage whereby crystals exfoliate the skin
to gently resurface the superficial layers. The vacuum pressure of the treatment
is customised according to the client's needs and skin type. The result is a glowing,
smooth, even and bright complexion. It is equally an ideal treatment to help you
look fantastic for a special occasion or, more seriously, to treat unsightly skin
blemishes and acne scarring.
Optimum results are obtained through a series of treatments, typically six to eight
treatments, spaced 10-14 days apart. Significant results should be seen in four to
five weeks. There are no side-effects to this treatment (which takes about 45 minutes
to administer) and no recovery time is required. Mild redness may be present for
a few hours after the Microdermabrasion procedure.
We usually combine microdermabrasion with light Agera skin peels. Treatments are
tailored to individual patients. We will recommend skin care products, often from
the Agera Medical Skin Care Range to be used in between treatments and as maintenance.
Microdermabrasion is a technical name for what is essentially a deep exfoliating
procedure which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation
problems, uneven skin tones, and a dull, lifeless, sun-damaged complexion. It is
the gentlest of our treatments to the whole of the facial skin and is also helpful
in the treatment of both active acne and mild acne scarring.
