What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment which targets dead skin cells, and build-up under the skin. Microdermabrasion removes the outermost layer of skin, and corrects irregularities, strengthens, and brightens.
What does microdermabrasion help with?

Blackheads, whiteheads & enlarged pores
Acne prone skin
Fine line & wrinkles
Mild acne & acne scars
Dull-looking skin complexions
Uneven skin tone and texture
How often should I have microdermabrasion?
The frequency of a microdermabrasion depends on your skin type, concerns, and what your Beauty Therapist suggests will be best for you. Microdermabrasion is a safe and gentle enough treatment to have done regularly. A microdermabrasion treatment can be done weekly or even every 4-8 weeks. If you’re unsure how often you should come in, ask your Beauty Therapist for their expert advice! On average, it takes between six to twelve sessions to see top results from a micro.
What aftercare should I follow?
To maintain results between sessions, follow a good skin care regime. It is especially important to apply a rich moisturizer after a microdermabrasion session as this will cut peeling.
Your skin will be sensitive after a treatment and will be especially vulnerable to the sun. With this in mind, the following tips will help you protect your skin and allow it to heal quicker:
Gently cleanse your face after a treatment
Follow with a rich moisturizer, and apply as needed throughout the day if your skin feels tight
Avoid direct sunlight for several days after treatment as your skin will be fragile
Wear sunscreen every time you go out as microdermabrasion increases photosensitivity
Keep your skin hydrated by drinking adequate amounts of water each day
Do not pick or scratch at your skin
