The Low down on Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is one of Hollywood's big beauty secrets - stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Campbell and Madonna all swear by having regular sessions and credit their glowing skin and youthful appearance to the treatment!

What is Microdermabrasion?

For those among us that don’t know or aren’t aware of it, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment also sometimes referred to as a deep exfoliating deep skin treatment. During a microdermabrasion treatment, dead and tired skin cells are removed from the skins surface normally using a hand held device. Once performed, this treatment reveals healthier looking skin that had previously been covered.

This process can help restore your natural glow as well as stimulating collagen production, thereby promoting the growth of new skin cells and boosting ones confidence.

What conditions can Microdermabrasion treat?

Microdermabrasion can be used in the treatment of many skin conditions. From the removal of dull, dehydrated or tired skin, the accumulation of excess toxins in the skin to general scarring and surgical scarring microdermabrasion can be an effective solution for many people.

Other treatable conditions include rough or coarse skin; Sun damaged uneven and thickened skin, fine lines and wrinkles (including delicate areas around the eyes) and enlarged and congested pores (blackheads and whiteheads) to name but a sample.

How Does Microdermabrasion work?

The treatment works by acting upon the top most layers of the skin and removing them safely.
The process can be thought of as a deep exfoliation improving the overall appearance of your skin.
