MICRODERMABRASION

TREATMENTS

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective skin treatments due to its efficient technology. With a special hand-held wand, this treatment removes dead cells from the skins surface while stimulating the production of collagen. The popularity of this facial is due to its fascinating immediate and long-term results. Instantly, after your microdermabrasion treatment, you will notice a more even skin tone, minimized pore size, reduction of lines and lightens spots and scarring leaving you with rejuvenated, glowing, smooth skin.

Crystal Microdermabrasion

Our Crystal Microdermabrasion uses a special applicator while moving along the skin that propels a high-speed blast of aluminum oxide crystals, which gently sand away the dead skin. The irregular shape of the crystals provide a more effective cleanse, purging deep through uneven surfaces. While the new crystals are being blasted, the old crystals are being collected with the exfoliated skin.

Diamond Microdermabrasion

Our Diamond Microdermabrasion involves a special device that acts as a vacuum. While exfoliating the outer surface, the applicator sucks the dead skin cells built up. A light cleanse is followed leaving your skin hydrated and refreshed. The diamond heads is recommended for those with sensitive skin.

Post Treatment Care

The number of microdermabrasion sessions needed will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations. We recommend 5-12 sessions for those with severe acne symptoms.

You can expect to see immediate results after the treatment. Your skin may appear a bit pink, but this will not last. Our therapists will apply post-treatment skin care and we recommend keeping your skin hydrated by using SPF 50+ sunscreen over the following week/s. Use gentle skin care products, as your skin may be sensitive after the procedure.

We recommend Skinstitut: gentle cleanser, rejuvenate 15 and SPF 50+ which are available in store or in the shop section of our site.

What is the difference between Diamond and Crystal Microdermabrasion?

The difference between the two facials are the tools being used. Crystal Microdermabrasion uses a special applicator while moving along the skin that propels a high-speed blast of aluminum oxide crystals and the Diamond Microdermabrasion involves a special device that acts as a vacuum, while exfoliating the outer surface. Diamonds are highly effective and are suitable for all skin types and crystals are sharper, get in deeper and are more suitable for tougher skin.

What are the side effects of Microdermabrasion?

There are low to no risk of side effects when it comes to microdermabrasion. As said, you may experience mild redness to the face after the treatment is performed but this will almost immediately subside.

Is Microdermabrasion right for me?

Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types, both female and male. If you suffer from sensitive skin and have concerns, you are welcome to come in for a consultation or let our specialists know prior to your appointment so we can adjust the procedure slightly so create a more soothing and worry-free experience for you. We may also suggest the diamond treatment, over the crystal.
