Microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure that polishes the face and immediately softens the skin, with very little downtime. It stimulates new collagen formation, firming the skin, and is an effective treatment for rough skin with dry or dull patches, uneven skin colour, mild age or sun spots, enlarged or clogged pores and mild acne scarring.
During the treatment, a fine diamond tip moves across the skin, polishing the surface, while a vacuum gently removes old skin cells and unclogs pores. Microdermabrasion can be done on its own or in combination with other treatments like injectable soft tissue fillers and topical skin care products. It can be used on any area of the body, is beneficial for all skin types, and is particularly effective for people with sensitive skin. The treatment is very mild. You can return to you work and regular activities immediately after the treatment.
Microdermabrasion is also great for neck rejuvenation – the diamond tip transducer gently buffs the skin on your neck and chest to make it smoother and more uniform in appearance. For best results, we recommend a series of 6 treatments every 1 to 2 weeks.
