What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a popular, safe and gentle cosmetic procedure that mechanically exfoliates the skin. This technique uses a closed pressurized system, designed to improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, skin texture and colour by polishing the topmost layer and then vacuuming away the dead skin cells in a safe, controlled manner. As this treatment removes surface dead skin cells, the skin’s permeability is increased allowing better absorption of your skin care.

How Long Will the Results Last?
With appropriate post treatment care, the effects of microdermabrasion cannot wear out or be reversed; in fact the benefits of microdermabrasion continue to grow after the procedure.

The procedure also stimulates the epidermis beneath the skins surface to promote new collagen which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of ageing.
