Microdermabrasion is a non invasive, chemical free treatment that uses a diamond tip vacuum suction mechanism. This exfoliates the skins surface, removing dead skin cells and stimulating collagen production.
How Microdermabrasion Works
As we age our body produces less collagen. When the top layer of the skin is removed your body sees this as an injury that it must heal. Your body then starts to replace those skin cells with new healthy ones thus increasing collagen production.
What You Need To Know
No Waxing 3-4 days before a microdermabrasion treatment

A series of treatments is usually recommended every 3-4 weeks.
Microdermabrasion is not recommended on rosacea, eczema, sunburnt skin, herpes, lupus, current imflammed acne, open sores and psoriasis. Microdermabrasion can irritate these skin conditions and cause further breakouts.
