Say Hello to a Buffed Skin Glow
Every so often, our skin needs an extra pick me up beyond what at-home skin treatments can deliver.
To achieve that fresh-faced look, opt for some deep exfoliation in the form of microdermabrasion. Much gentler than it sounds, the treatment is safe and effective for all skin types. Our trained therapists use the very latest exfoliating technology to buff away that dull, lifeless complexion and reveal a brighter, smoother, more confident you.
How Microdermabrasion Works
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that gently exfoliates and removes the dead and dehydrated skin cells on the outer layer of the skin. Fine crystals are sprayed onto the skin using a handheld device and a vacuum suction then removes the crystals along with unwanted skin debris. This will improve skin health, as a fresh layer of skin will be exposed.
The treatment also stimulates blood flow which can improve cell production and your skin’s elasticity and texture. The effects generally last about a month. The number of treatments you need depends on your end goal. Our therapists will discuss this during your consultation.
Please don’t use any at-home exfoliating products 2-3 days before your appointment. After treatment, we recommend you avoid the sun or exercise for a few days, and moisturise generously.
