As we age, the natural cycles of skin loss and renewal slow down. Microdermabrasion removes older, upper skin layers and helps trigger the production of new cells.
By revealing more youthful skin cells and encouraging natural renewal, the process of microdermabrasion brings a welcome glow to your skin.
Imperfections in your skin are also reduced, or removed altogether. From fine lines and wrinkles, to areas of sun damage, blotchiness, or light scarring.
Preparing For Treatment
The first step is a personal consultation with an experienced dermatologist, or dermatologically trained nurse. To ensure microdermabrasion is safe for you and the best path to achieve the look you want.
They understand your skin’s type and current condition. Medical expertise is also valuable in identifying issues which might be contributing to changes in your skin.
We simply wish to ensure microdermabrasion is the best approach to meet your needs and safe for you. This is normally the case, with a treatment which is light and minimally invasive, yet offers a proven effect.
A specialist abrasion device is used to buff away your top skin layers, in combination with crystal exfoliants. The procedure is quite pain free and requires no anesthetic.
Treatment time will depend on the areas needing attention, although fitting this into a lunch hour is feasible and you should feel fine to go about your day.
Depending on the nature of your skin and existing conditions, ongoing sessions may be a good approach. Perhaps to treat longer term sun damage, or keep unwanted symptoms of acne at bay.
Microdermabrasion in our London clinics is at times used alongside therapeutic creams. They are non symptomatic and can enhance the rejuvenating effect the treatment provides.
