How does it work?
Microdermabrasion uses a controlled flow of medical-grade aluminium oxide crystals to remove dead skin cells.
It uses the crystals to exfoliate and reveal fresh skin cells on the surface, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.
During the treatment, your skin is cleansed and prepped before your practitioner applies the crystals to your skin using a hand piece.
Whilst the crystals gently buff your skin, the gentle vacuum stimulates the underlying epidermis to promote new collagen production – invigorating blood flow to the surface. We then apply a mask and serums post treatment to leave your skin feeling hydrated and silky smooth. Lastly, we apply an SPF and dust on some mineral makeup if needed.

What areas of my body can be treated?
Microdermabrasion is a great treatment for the face, but can also be performed on many body areas, The most common body area being the back, as this is an area which often gets forgotten about.

How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your concern, the number of treatments will be advised in your consultation. Microdermabrasion is a great starting treatment for many skin concerns, including dull and lifeless skin.
