MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion is a safe, controlled system of intense exfoliation and resurfacing using ultra fine crystals that rejuvenate the skin. The crystals work as a gentle abrasive on the skin to remove dead skin cells layer by layer. The irregular shape of the crystals helps to work on hard to reach areas without any damage to the skin.
The treatment is progressive meaning our clients will continue to see results over the course of treatment.

The degree of epidermal abrasion can be varied by altering the crystal’s speed when impacting on the skin. The removal of the stratum corneum results in skin that feels instantly smoother and fresher, whilst promoting new skin and collagen growth. Over a course of treatment your skin will be left ‘glowing’ and will feel rejuvenated.

The vacuum action draws away used crystals and dead skin cells and also works to stimulate 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 looking skin.

Microdermabrasion can be used for all skin types on all areas of the body and face. Dermaesthetics Clinic recommend a course of 8, usually performed every 7 to 10 days. 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. After the treatment, the skin may feel tight with mild redness. Therefore it is important that clients use a good moisturiser. These effects normally subside within 24 hours of treatment.

BODY TREATMENTS

Our most powerful MD treatment specifically designed to treat the back area. During treatment a vigorous jet of crystals will slough away old skin and imperfections. Meanwhile the powerful vacuum action will unblock pores and stimulate blood flow to the area to promote healing and improve the appearance of the skin. To achieve the best results we recommend a course of treatments. A full consultation will be carried out to establish the best course of treatments for your needs.

Stretch marks form when rapid growth causes the skin to over-stretch. Hormones affect the normal levels of elastin and collagen production which results in what we call stretch marks. Treatment for stretch marks is most effective when they are still red in appearance. Microdermabrasion stimulates collagen and elastin production to help contract the marks so they appear smaller and thinner. Over a course of treatment t​he level of the skin surrounding the stretch marks is also reduced to be closer to the stretch mark itself, this also makes them less visible. Course length can vary considerably depending on the size and extent of the stretch marks, typically 6-10 treatments will be required.

This delicate area requires a sensitive touch. Our Decolletage treatment will use the MD’s variable control to ensure just the right amount of pressure for your skin. Also prone to pigmentation issues, the decolletage will see benefits from a course of treatment to gently remove pigmentation caused by sun damage.

Priced according to the size of the area. We can formulate a treatment plan specifically for you so please do get in touch for a full no obligation consultation.

FACIAL TREATMENTS

During 30 minutes thousands of tiny crystals are used to polish away the very outermost layer of skin. Using a combination of exfoliation and vacuum action, pores are unblocked and impurities removed from the skin to reveal a fresh, healthy and radiant complexion.

The Deluxe facial includes a deep exfoliating Microdermabrasion treatment that will leave skin super smooth, clean and refreshed; perfectly prepped for applying one of our hydrating masks. The pampering doesn't end there, while our mask works its magic, we will work ours with a relaxing neck and shoulder massage for the ultimate pampering. Pure bliss.

Similar to our Express facial but with particular attention paid to problem areas. Ideal as a second treatment to really concentrate on areas of congestion around the T-Zone, fine lines on the forehead and around the eyes. A course of treatment may be more appropriate so make sure to ask us about those. Courses can be specially tailored to your needs to achieve the best results possible.

After a course of treatments you will need to maintain the results and keep your skin in tip top condition. Skin renews itself about every 4 week so we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment to ensure the old skin is exfoliated to maintain a glowing complexion. Microdermabrasion also helps the absorption of skincare products into the skin, so your at home skin care routine is more effective. MD also enhances the barrier function of your skin helping to lock in moisture.

The Luxury Facial with microdermabrasion promotes healthy, balanced skin. Restore your skin’s valor by repairing compromised barriers and reinforcing your natural vitality. Improve circulation and will leave you feeling completely refreshed, extremely relaxing and you will find yourself drifting away as you receive the ultimate facial treatment.

Microdermabrasion is an extremely effective treatment for acne. We recommend a course of 6-20 facials depending on the severity of acne. A full skin consultation will be carried out to recommend a personalised treatment plan. During treatment old skin particles will be abraded away and a vacuum action used to remove the debris. This dual action will both resurface the skin and stimulate blood flow, encouraging skin to rejuvenate itself. New collagen and elastin production will improve the appearance of any acne scarring and speed up healing.

This facial was designed as a skin pigmentation treatment and can therefore vastly improve the appearance of facial pigmentation and skin blemishes, especially melasma. Microdermabrasion will gently exfoliate the top most layer of skin removing the dark skin which has formed. We would generally recommend between 6-8 treatments. The final result and number of treatments required depends on a number of factors. These include the type of lesion, skin type, the degree of sun tan, size and depth of the pigmentation and the location to be treated. A full consultation will be carried out to give you an accurate recommendation based on your requirements.

Microdermabrasion is a targeted and effective anti-wrinkle facial treatment. It works by removing the skin’s dead cells and increasing the collagen produced by our ageing skin. MD leaves skin looking fresh and smooth as soon as the treatment is over. With microdermabrasion there is no recovery time and no discomfort just a noticeable difference to fine lines and wrinkles. A course of 6-8 followed by a monthly maintenance treatment will help to maintain results long term.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Microdermabrasion is a popular, non - surgical treatment to achieve a younger and healthier complexion. The treatment uses microcrystals to exfoliate the skin and the mild suction during the process removes dry and dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion is an effective way to enhance the natural glow of your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Microdermabrasion is an ideal treatment for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and wrinkles, sun damaged and uneven skin tone, acne prone skin, blackheads, whiteheads, superficial age spots and hyperpigmentation and excessive oiliness or dry skin. Prior to your treatment you will have a free consultation where all your questions are answered by a nurse counsellor and you are assessed for your suitability to proceed. Please note, Medical Microdermbrasion is not a suitable treatment for clients who have visible broken blood vessels.

The skin is cleansed and the prep solution is applied prior to treatment. A highly controlled flow of medical grade crystals is then passed over the skin using a hand held device. These crystals, delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin's surface are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells with it. This mechanical exfoliation process improves both the tone and texture of the skin and also reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft and smooth. At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the treatment, promoting new collagen, thickening the dermis and improving the resistance to the effects of ageing. After the procedure, the treatment will finish with the application of anti-oxidant moisturiser and SPF 30 to hydrate and provide sun protection for your skin.

The vacuum capacity used in CrystalMircrodermabrasion is significantly stronger than what is used during a standard microdermabrasion treatment, therefore providing much deeper penetration on the skin's surface and guaranteeing better overall results.

Crystal Microdermabrasion is a non - invasive, painless procedure, although you may experience slight discomfort for a short time as the aluminium crystals are delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin's surface. However, the controls of the hand - held device and vacuum capacity are flexible, so you can opt for a less intense treatment.

After having your Crystal Microdermabrasion treatment you may experience slight redness in the first 48 hours. Some customers, dependent on skin type may experience slight shedding but this is a natural side effect and nothing to be worried about. We recommend customers to avoid heavy make-up (or if desire can use mineral make-up witch will not interact with the treatment), heat treatments such as saunas, sun beds, hot baths and vigorous exercise 24 hours after having treatment.

We recommend that you book the course of six Microdermabrasion treatments, to have every 7 to 10 days and then maintain top-up treatments every fourweeks. Due to the incredible results, customers often want to continue having treatments, so a maintenance treatment will be booked every 4 weeks. Your therapist will recommend products to use at home to enhance your results.
