How does microdermabrasion work?

Treatment is based on medical-grade crystals which exfoliate the top layer of skin and stimulate the underlying cells. This promotes new collagen and improves resistance to the effects of ageing. Suitable for all skin types.

Summary of treatment

  • Procedure time 30 minutes
  • Downtime usually no downtime although skin may appear red for a few hours
  • Results are usually fairly immediate. A course of 6 treatments is recommended for optimum results
  • Repeat treatments are recommended one each month
  • Risks and complications - mild skin irritation and localised redness which settles quickly
