What exactly is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliation technique which uses a specialised diamond head microdermabrasion tool to polish away the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells.This makes your complexion smoother, brighter, and more even in skin tone.
What is Microdermabrasion used for?
Microdermabrasion helps with the following:
dullness in complexion
uneven skin tone and texture
surface pigmentation and age spots
fine lines and wrinkles
How many treatments will I need?
For optimal results a series of three to six treatments are generally recommended.
Who should NOT have Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion treatment will not be offered unless you are using quality sunscreen and reapplying it. Failure to use sunscreen after your treatment harms the skin's healing process and increases the risk of more pigmentation forming.
In general, Microdermabrasion should be avoided if you are pregnant or have compromised skin, or are using certain medications.
What should I do before my treatment?
All of my Skin Correction treatments ideally start with healthy and well hydrated skin. A good skincare regime, good nutrition, and plenty of water in the weeks before treatment will help ensure the best outcome for you.
What should I do after my treatment?
You will be given full aftercare instructions at the time of your treatment, which will include the following:
Avoid active skincare products for 3-4 days after treatment.
Use the skin products recommended.
Avoid sun exposure, and protect your skin with sunscreen and regular re-application.
Avoid excessive exercise, including swimming, spa or sauna for 24 hours after treatment.
Stay well hydrated.
