Microdermabrasion

Why microdermabrasion…?

  • You want beautiful looking, healthy skin.
  • You want to look younger and more glowing.
  • You want to reverse the visible signs of ageing.
  • You want to reduce uneven pigmentation.
  • You want softer, smoother skin.
  • You want to get rid of acne or chicken pox scars.
  • You want to get better results from your skincare creams.

 

Do…

  • Avoid direct sun exposure.
  • Wear SPF 30+ sunscreen or a hat when outside.
  • Wait until any skin rashes or active acne have calmed down – you cannot be treated and it is advisable to wait until your skin has calmed down.

 

Don’t…

  • Have any chemical, glycolic or laser peels or use Botox for 2 weeks before.
  • Use skincare products containing Retin A, Hydroquinone, Roaccutane or any other steroid cream, or AHAs for 2 months before.

What happens during microdermabrasion…?

  • Your therapist will conduct a patch test on your forehead or some other part of your body to check your comfort level for the vacuum suction.
  • Your therapist will treat your forehead first and work slowly down your face.
  • She may gently stretch out your skin to make sure the suction is applied evenly as she moves across your face.
  • Once the vacuum part of the treatment is over, your therapist will thoroughly wipe your face.
  • Your therapist will massage a mineral mask onto your neck and face and leave it on for 5-10 minutes.
  • Your therapist will remove the mask with a damp cloth.
  • Your therapist will apply 1-2 drops of Microderma Care Oil and then sunblock to your skin.

 

If you feel one of these steps has been missed or hasn’t been done well, please stop your therapist and let her know. When you work together with your therapist, you will get the best possible results.

Do…

  • Avoid direct sun exposure or any other form of tanning.
  • Use SPF30+ sunscreen every day.
  • Use the recommended post-treatment products to help soothe your skin until it has settled completely.

 

Don’t…

  • Use any skincare products that contain AHAs, Retinol or exfoliating agents for 7 days.

 

What happens next…?

  • Your skin may feel tight and appear slightly red – this is normal and it will go away in a few hours.
  • You may find your skin looks streaked from the increased blood flow. Although this is uncommon, it will fade over a day or two.
  • Your complexion will look instantly refreshed after just the one treatment. Your fine lines will be reduced, your pores unblocked and mild acne scars and sun damage will appear less prominent. You can get even more impressive results after a series of microdermabrasion treatments.

Microhydrabrasion combines micellar water with diamond–tipped technology in a gentle non-invasive manner which will clean and hydrate the skin making the treatment gentler than traditional forms of dermabrasion. Micellar water blasts over the skin which cools and soothes whilst simultaneously exfoliating deeply using the diamond tip with a gentle vacuum suction that stimulates blood flow.

Microhydrabrasion oxygen facials will deliver micellar water to the skin that helps to draw out impurities without drying the skin. This type of water will latch onto dirt, make-up and other environmental substances found on the surface of your skin. The oxygen is emitted using hyperbaric pressure which enhances absorption and has a cooling, calming and antibacterial effect on the skin.

Combining this technique with a microhydrabrasion facial and all of the benefits associated with deep exfoliation will give your skin the ultimate deep cleansing and hydrating experience available today!
