Everything you need to know about microdermabrasion

Resurfacing your skin has more benefits than just the fresh, smooth and even texture it uncovers.   

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that exfoliates to remove the outer most layer of dead skin cells to reveal a new fresh layer that is even, smooth and rejuvenated.  

How it works 

The handheld device is run over the surface of the skin and causes small micro injuries when removing dead cells. The body works to repair the injury by aiming to replace the damaged or lost cells. As a result, it encourages the production of new skin cells with high levels of collagen and elastin which improves your skin’s appearance.  

Benefits  

Microdermabrasion triggers increased level of collagen production and elastin which allows increased absorption of skincare products. In addition, the treatment can also help with:

  • Uneven pigmentation 
  • Fine lines 
  • Clogged pores 
  • Enlarged pores

What does it feel like?  

Microdermabrasion treatments are painless and can often be described as a mild scratching sensation or a gritty massage. It is comfortable with the satisfying sense of feeling rejuvenated, fresh and buffed post treatment as it sucks away dead skin cells.  

How many treatments do I need?
