Advanced Microdermabrasion Treatment Information

About the treatment

Do you suffer from dull, lack-luster skin or just love that smooth feeling after a good exfoliation? This treatment is for you.

Microdermabrasion can be used to treat multiple skin concerns including; sun damage, dry skin, acne, blemish scars, and fine lines. This treatment is also for those who love a serious deep cleanse and want to reduce blackheads and blemishes.

How it works – Our advanced microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure where your skin is exfoliated by either a diamond encrusted tip or crystals with the added benefit of vacuum suction and chemical peeling agents to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This aids in the penetration of skin care products, encourages circulation and collagen production leaving your skin bright, fresh and renewed. For congested skins blackheads and milias are removed with the use of a specialised sterile tool.
