What Is Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a soft and pleasant way to remove dead skin and promote a healthy complexion. It uses ultra fine crystals to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, leaving the skin feeling silky and soft to the touch. It also stimulates skin circulation, asking the skin to ‘wake up’ and to increase cell turnover.
Microdermabrasion is often used as a means to prepare the skin for other treatments. Those who are prepping for a laser treatment or chemical peel, will often have microdermabrasion leading up to their treatment. This helps make their skin optimally functioning and decreases any dead skin cells at the surface of the skin, allowing the laser or peel to penetrate with more ease.
Treatment takes half and hour and is described as feeling slightly scratchy, but not painful. Your skin will likely look pink after treatment, but this will subside over the next 12 hours. Many clients have microdermabrasion on their lunchbreak or midweek as there is no downtime following it.

How Microdermabrasion Work
Preparation – Removing makeup and toning the facial skin.
Exfoliation – Utilizing a diamond-coated tipped wand to thoroughly exfoliate the surface of your facial skin.
Applying a serum and a face mask to rejuvenate the skin, followed by toning and moisturizing with cream.
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation process that gently removes the outer layer of your skin, deep clean where the dull, dead skin cells lie. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
Microdermabrasion treatment uses a diamond tip to grind away the surface of the skin. Similarly, hydrodermabrasion generally uses a diamond tip to grind away the skin but adds a liquid that flushes away debris from the treatment. Hydrodermabrasion is not aggressive as microdermabrasion, is more gentle and suitable for sensitive/thin skin
Almost anyone and all skin types who wants deep cleanse and refreshment, is particularly well-suited to clients who want minimal downtime after treatment. Obviously, no recommendation for active skin diseases, unstable medical condition and pregnant females.
