Crystal microdermabrasion is a treatment that literally polishes the skin. It involves the use of small aluminium oxide crystals. These crystals are projected onto the skin surface using specialised equipment which applies suction at the same time to clear away the skin debris and used crystals.
Microdermabrasion is a very popular treatment, either alone or combined with mild peels to freshen up the skin and act as an adjunct to the treatment of blocked pores, and photoageing with its accompanying pigmentation and coarsened skin texture.
Your skin is left feeling smooth and fresh with little or no recovery time needed. The treatment improves the overall appearance of the skin, enlarged pores and uneven texture as a result of acne scarring and ageing.
We recommend a series of 6 or more treatments 2 weeks apart for best results. We often advise a treatment plan with a mix of peels and dermabrasion to achieve best results.
Microdermabrasion is not a treatment to correct deeper lines or more deeply placed pigmentation. These problems are better addressed with fractional skin resurfacing with our Active FX Laser.
Each treatment lasts about half an hour and is carried out by our nurse.
