Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion

What is a Microdermabrasion?

Our Advanced Microdermabrasion treatment utilizes our state-of-the-art Clairderm Skin Trio Device to deliver renewed and rejuvenated skin. This advanced device is the first to offer three modalities; crystal, diamond and hydrabrasion to thoroughly remove skin’s cellular debris whilst still nurturing your skin. This treatment is minimally invasive, pain free and involves physically exfoliating the skin using ultra-fine crystals and/or the diamond tip. By removing the top superficial layer of skin, the body quickly replaces lost skin cells with new, healthy ones. The skin is then polished and soothed using hydrabrasion, the latest in aesthetic technology to refine and hydrate the skin. A soothing mask and tailored application of Medik8 products ensures your skin will be left feeling renewed and glowing.  

The three modalities of our Clairderm Skin Trio Device are as follows:

Crystal microdermabrasion uses small crystals to strike the skin and remove the outer layer known as the stratum corneum. At the same time, a vacuum tube sweeps up both the crystals and the skin’s cellular debris.

Diamond tip microdermabrasion uses vacuum assistance to gently suction the skin whilst the diamond tip exfoliates the top skin layer.  

Hydrabrasion utilises the diamond tip with the addition of filtered water to flush each pore and ensure skin is left smooth, hydrated and polished. 

In all of our advanced microdermabrasion treatments we complete the three-step micro by applying a hydrating and calming mask by Medik8 which ensures your skin has all the hydration assistance. We then get you set up to rest under our Healite II Medical LED light device for an extra healing and anti-aging component. Lastly, we then apply your tailored Medik8 products ensuring your skin will be left feeling renewed and glowing.

Results:

This gentle procedure is perfect for those wanting a ‘really good clean and detoxification of the skin’. Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow, which improves cell production, in turn improving the skins elasticity and texture. Mild scarring, texture irregularity, congested pores, fine lines and dehydrated skin will also be greatly improved through microdermabrasion. Perfect for special occasions or regular skin upkeep, this gentle treatment will leave you with baby soft, decongested and glowing skin. Makeup will apply flawlessly, and skincare products will penetrate deeper, meaning you get the most out of your ‘at home’ products.

  • Avoid heavy makeup for the first 48 hours if possible. We recommend a mineral makeup i.e. Young Blood during this time. 
  • Avoid exercise for 24 hours following your treatment as excess sweat will aggravate your skin. 
  • No exfoliation including wet towel and chemical acids for 5 days. 
  • Change your pillowcase and clean your makeup brushes to eliminate excess bacteria coming into contact with your skin
  • Always ensure you are using clean hands when touching your face as you as prone to breakout during the healing phase

No, microdermabrasion is a pain free relaxation treatment. It’s time for you to unwind and go inwards. Relax and let us take care of you!

This treatment alone is safe during pregnancy but please keep in mind your skin may respond a little differently whilst you are growing your little munchkin. Pregnancy causes the skin to be more sensitive and heal slower. We will adjust the intensity of the treatment if you are pregnant for extra precaution whilst still getting you the results. All precautions are taken but you are always best to consult your medical professional.

The renewed skin revealed after your microdermabrasion treatment will be more prone to breakout if the correct aftercare isn’t followed, but generally speaking, no.

We highly recommend letting your skin breath straight after your treatment, but if you have to, use a light mineral makeup applying with super clean brushes. We highly recommend Young Blood to be used as your makeup for the first 72 hours post procedure
