Microdermabrasion is a revolutionary method for deep exfoliation. The surface of our skin is constantly subject to damage by everyday environmental factors such as UV light, artificial heat or cooling, and pollution. Over time these factors cause a build-up of dead and congested skin cells which lead to a lifeless, tired, and aging complexion. This 30-minute long rejuvenating process uses microcrystals to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time, it improves the appearance of common skin complaints, such as acne, sun spots, and clogged pores.
Following treatment, your collagen and elastin levels will have been increased. Medical microdermabrasion stimulates lymphatic circulation and increases nutrients and oxygen to the skin, revealing a smoother and brighter complexion.

Microdermabrasion, like most facials, isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment. Are crystal microdermabrasion and diamond microdermabrasion the same thing? Below, here is a closer look at both types of microdermabrasion.
Crystal Microdermabrasion uses aluminium crystals. As its name implies, the technique uses a probe to spray fine crystals over the face. As the loose crystals abrade the skin, an attached vacuum sucks up dead skin cells and used crystals with every pass. Because the crystals have anti-bacterial properties, this the best type of microdermabrasion for acne. The loose crystals can reach places a diamond-tip microdermabrasion wand can’t.
Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is exactly what it sounds like, a probe with a tip made from natural or synthetic diamond chips. Because this technique is particle-free, cosmetic dermatologist often prefer it because they have more control and accuracy. Similarly, these probes also have attached suction, but differ in that they make direct contact with the skin. Treatments are relatively quick, and any redness experienced afterward disappears by the end of the day. Diamonds are the hardest mineral so most effective for abrasion. No risk of ingestion, allowing treatment closer to eyes and mouth.
Do not use exfoliating creams 3 days prior to your treatment. Candidates who have had a recent chemical peel should wait for two weeks. Also, patients should refrain from waxing for one week prior to treatment. Wash your face with a non-oily, non-soap based cleanser before treatment.
Microdermabrasion works best on problems such as dull skin, brown spots, and age spots. The gentle removal of outer layer, refreshes and brightens skin’s appearance but also stimulates the process of cell renewal. Certainly, the production of collagen and elastin, making this an excellent anti-aging treatment.
Microdermabrasion is mainly effective for skin exfoliation, as it works to lift and cleanse away any buildup on the surface of the skin. Also, it stimulates circulation, giving your skin more of a refreshed look. Further, our treatment also includes the application of hydrating serums to help soothe and nourish the skin.
