Micro dermabrasion is very much a buzz word in the beauty industry, it’s the perfect way to freshen skin and can help to repair damage caused  by sun and the effects of ageing. This ‘miracle’ treatment is effective in reducing fine lines, “crows feet,” age spots and acne scars.

The process stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen revealing new softer skin with a more even texture to the surface. A treatment used by Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law, it is currently the must have treatment for A list celebrities.

Microdermabrasion is one of the fastest growing trends and now many salons and clinics provide the treatment.  Different mediums are used to abrade the skin, the most popular are aluminium oxide crystals or diamond tipped wands. A hand piece is used to gently “polish” the skin to give a younger fresher surface. Typically treatments take 20 minutes or it may be introduced to a facial routine to give a more bespoke treatment. Just one treatment is a great way to give your skin a lift for a special occasion.  Increased benefits can be seen by having a course of treatments, the ideal is to have one session per week for 10 weeks and then ongoing monthly treatments as maintenance,

Micro dermabrasion reduces inflammation and stimulates circulation, it can be used to treat:

• Fine lines
• Enlarged pores
• Acne scars
• Sun damaged skin
• Scar tissue
• Dry skin
• Age spots on hands and face
• Gives the skin an overall fresher appearance
• Stretch marks
• Ingrown hairs
• Blackheads, congested skin and millia.
After dermabrasion the skin is typically slightly red, but this should fade quickly, with little or no downtime.
