Microdermabrasion

As certain as night follows day, we are all getting older. Time, I’m afraid waits for no man.But although we lack the power to freeze or slower the time, we do have the ability considerable prevent or delay the outward signs of ageing.


What is Diamond Microdermabrasion?

Diamond Microdermabrasion provides a non-surgical skin refinish procedure.
It uses a system of intense exfoliation and resurfacing using a diamond tip that rejuvenates the skin.
The diamond tip works as a gentle abrasive on the skin to remove dead skin cells layer by layer.
The vacuum action vacuumes  out the particles along with any impurities and dead skin, stimulates the circulation and promotes increased blood flow to the area.
The production of collagen and elastin is stimulated which results in a firmer, more youthful and radiant looking skin.
This procedure removes skin debris, imperfections, blemishes, wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation on the skin

Are there any risks associated with microdermabrasion?

Improper use or unhygienic conditions pose a risk when having microdermabrasion treatment. However, all therapists receive training in the use of Diamond Dermabrasion machines.

Diamond tips are steralised after each treatment eliminating any risk of cross-contamination between clients as the nozzle is the only component that will come into contact with the skin during treatment.

F.A.Q’s

Is microdermabrasion safe for all skin types?
Yes, microdermabrasion can be used for all skin types on all areas of the body and face.

How quickly will I see results?

You will see results immediately and with each subsequent treatment the skin will continue to look progressively better.

How many treatments should a client have?

We recommend a course of 6 or 8  people with acne or acne scarring might need more treatments and we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment after the course has finished to help maintain the results achieved.

How often should clients have a treatment?

Treatments are usually performed every 7 to 10 days.
 
Are there any side effects to the treatment?

After the treatment, the skin may feel tight with mild redness. Therefore it is important that you will use a good moisturiser. These effects normally subside within 24 hours of treatment

Aftercare:


12 hours    -    No heavy Make-up (foundation)

24 hours    -    No swimming or facial waxing
48 hours    -    No Botox, collagen injections of dermal fillers,
                       No sun exposure, sauna, sun beds or heat treatments
72hours     -    No AHA’s, glycolic, retinol or exfoliating products.

If the skin feels hot, splash with cold water, pat dry and moisturiser with a gentle, hydrating moisturiser. Regular moisturiser applications are vital to replenish moisture and prevent the skin from becoming dry and peeling.
