Microdermabrasion and Acne

Microdermabrasion is a quick, simple and painless treatment with no downtime and minimal risk. It gently exfoliates the surface layers of the skin using abrasion and suction.

The abrasion part of Microdermabrasion is the exfoliation process where dead skin cells are removed using fine crystals or a fine abrasive tip which polishes the surface of the skin.

The suction part of the process creates erythema which draws blood to the area improving circulation and collagen production.

With the advent of better engineering, there now exists graded attachments which are used in Microdermabrasion (rather than fine crystals) which undertake the polishing of the skin. The suction part of Microdermabrasion still applies in this case.

Further, a new type of Microdermabrasion called Microhydrabrasion uses micellar water for the exfoliation of the surface layers of the skin whilst still using suctioning to increase collagen production.

Microdermabrasion can help to improve skin appearance by reducing fine lines, sun damage and mild/shallow acne scars and marks.

Your skin will become noticeably smoother after one treatment and thereafter better absorb moisturisers and other skin care creams

Microdermabrasion is affordable and can be undertaken every four weeks for optimal results.
