What is Microdermabrasion?
It is a quick, safe, effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and colours with no downtime and no pain or discomfort. It uses a diamond-tipped applicator with a slight suction to remove dead or damaged skin cells. Skin will appear softer, smoother, brighter, clearer, fresher and younger looking.
Diamond microdermabrasion systems operate without the need for crystals. The exfoliation process occurs when a diamond tipped head makes contact with the skin. In diamond microdermabrasion systems the dead skin cells are gently removed away from the face.
What areas can be treated?
The most common areas that are treated are the face and neck. In addition you can treat the chest, shoulders, back, hands, knees and elbows. Any body area can be treated.
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliation that is performed with a diamond-encrusted applicator tip. The tip passes over the skins surface, and creates a gentle vacuum. The diamond tip gently exfoliates approximately 20-25 microns of dead skin cells of the outermost layer (stratum corneum). Once removed, it reveals one’s own fresher, younger looking skin beneath. One Microdermabrasion is equal to three 30% glycolic peels or one 70% peel.
