Microdermabrasion is a mechanical form of skin exfoliation using an abrasive diamond cut combined with suction. It exfoliates the upper layers of the skin and stimulates collagen growth in the lower layers. The intensity can be varied to suit an individuals’ skin concerns from light exfoliation to deep resurfacing. Subsequently you see an improvement in the skin’s texture, more even coloring, fine lines, fewer break outs, refined pores, renewed elasticity and a more youthful appearance.
Diamond & Suction

How many sessions do I need?
Microdermabrasion is designed to be performed as a course of treatments. Initially it is recommended you begin with 6 weekly sessions, however lines, scarring and other severe skin conditions will take many more regular sessions which will be discussed with you during your consultation.
How does my skin look after the treatment?
