What is Microdermabrasion?
If you’ve been experiencing a duller complexion, noticing more imperfections, and/or want to give yourself a fresh start microdermabrasion may be the solution.
Microdermabrasion works by exfoliating the skin with tiny crystals leaving your skin brighter, smoother, and more even toned. It also reduces the appearance of imperfections and fine lines.
Microdermabrasion gently removes the top dull, dead layers of the skin by gently abrading them away with the diamond tips.
This is a pain free treatment as the skin being removed is dead. Your skin is essentially being resurfaced, allowing the new smoother layers beneath to emerge, leaving the new “glowing” layer of skin visible on the surface.
Although it won’t help with birth defects, moles, and other imperfections, Microdermabrasion will help with:
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- Dark patches
- Acne & acne scars
- Much more
What is involved in the treatment?
The Microdermabrasion treatment takes approx 1 hour, we begin by cleansing the skin of any impurities, we then use the diamond tip to remove the build up of dead skin on the surface. the vacuum suction from the machine also encourages blood supply to the new layers of skin, increasing the levels of collagen, therefore resulting in a firmer surface texture and increased healing for any blemishes present.
Once the dead skin has been removed we will carry out any blackhead extractions required to unblock the pores. Then a mask will be applied to the new skin, the mask applied will be specific to your individual skin requirements. When the mask is removed a moisturiser and sunscreen will be applied to protect the skin before you leave
Worried about recovery time?
This procedure is safe and effective without the need of anaestheics and your skin will be ready for your holiday parties in 24 hours.
Who should get microdermabrasion?
This treatment works really well for congested skin, anyone suffering from hard-to-tackle blackheads and clogged pores. Microdermabrasion is perfect for softening fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing superficial scarring and generally revealing glowy new skin (who wouldn't want that?).
While it’s safest with fair skin, our professionals can give you a custom consultation to let you know if your skin tone would benefit from microdermabrasion.
Who shouldn't get microdermabrasion?
We would never recommend this type of exfoliation to someone with super sensitive skin or with broken capillaries as the abrasion could cause more trauma on the skin.
When is the best time to undergo the treatment?
Time your treatment carefully. If you’re having treatment before a special occasion, you may be red for a day or two so have treatment at least a week in advance of a ‘big do’ to be on the safe side. You've been warned!
You will need to avoid the sun AND wear sunscreen with SPF of 30 or more to protect delicate skin, so don’t book a treatment just before a holiday in the sun.
How much does it cost?
Mircodermabrasion Treatments – 60min (€85)
A safe non-chemical, non-surgical exfoliation to deep cleanse surface dead skin
The result is healthier, younger looking skin with fewer imperfections and smaller looking pores. Once your skin has been cleared of these dead layers, you’ll find your moisturiser will work much better, as it can now penetrate properly into the skin.
Microdermabrasion is best carried out as a course of treatments rather than a one-off. You’ll see results build up as you have more sessions. We recommend a course of three treatments to see the best results, but it can be used as a monthly boost throughout the year.
