Having acne can cause the sufferer discomfort and embarrassment, but so can the scars that get left on the skin. As many as 80% of people will have to deal with acne at sometime in their life, and even if you no longer have active acne, there’s a good chance you’ll have acne scars. Having acne and living with its after-effects isn’t just confined to our teenage years, the scars and pock-marks left on our face can last a lifetime. No-one is perfect, we all have flaws, but we still spend vast amounts of time and money trying to hide them.
The outer surface layer of the skin replaces itself about every 28 days through shedding, which is known as exfoliation. Microdermabrasion treatment speeds up the rate at which the skin would normally renew itself, revealing new, fresh glowing skin.
Medical grade microdermabrasion machines offer state of the art treatments, from mild exfoliation to deeper medical treatments, and this translates into more impressive and lasting results to you.
Medical microdermabrasion is a safe, controlled treatment that will intensely exfoliate and resurface the skin. It will polish the outer layers of the skin, revealing a healthy fresh complexion, while helping to diminish acne scars and skin imperfections. It smooths the skin, removing small scars, uneven skin tone, birthmarks, sun damage, age and liver spots.
Microdermabrasion is a unique treatment that uses a light mist of crystals, which will gently and painlessly dislodge dead and dull cells from the upper layer of the skin. The vacuum suction then simultaneously removes the crystals and dead/dull cells which will result in polished, smooth and glowing skin.
The treatment is suitable for all skin types, and it helps to promote the growth of new skin and collagen, which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effect of ageing. Recovery time is negligible, you can return to work/normal activities immediately after your treatment.
Microdermabrasion was first developed in Italy in 1985, and today there are hundreds of microdermabrasion machines available, and all of them have the same basic design, to exfoliate dead skin cells. This treatment creates a smooth, even skin texture, providing a perfect surface for applying make-up. It also promotes collagen and helps to stop future breakouts, if it’s done regularly.
Medical microdermabrasion is a safe procedure for women and men and it can treat specific skin conditions or be done as a facial to keep the skin in good condition.
