Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment that is used to treat a number of skin conditions including fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scarring, , blackheads and large pores and generally improve the tone, texture and colour of the skin giving an overall rejuvenation. It can be used on the face or body.
It works by gently removing the dull upper layers (stratum corneum) of the skin to produce a fresh, smooth and youthful appearance. The process uses a vacuum suction and fine abrasive crystals to polish and resurface all skin types. Microdermabrasion also helps to promote collagen, elastin and cell nutrition and speeds up cell production, all of which slow down as we age.
A microdermabrasion treatment to the face starts with a thorough cleanse using Eve Taylor cleansing gel. The microdermabrasion machine is then used to gently remove the upper layer of the skin. Following this a soothing toner is used followed by a hydrating mask treatment and moisturiser.
Your skin may be a little red and slightly blotchy after the treatment however this should subside within 24 - 48 hours.
You will notice the difference in the look and feel of your skin after just 1 treatment, however for certain skin conditions and for optimal results a course 3 - 6 is recommended. A monthly microdermabrasion treatment will help to keep your complexion looking flawless!
