What is Skin Resurfacing with microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion skin resurfacing is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it softer and plumper. Skin resurfacing also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Diamond microdermabrasion treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time after treatment.
The length of the treatment and number of treatments vary depending on skin type and condition. Results are gradual but highly effective. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment. Recent studies have demonstrated about 45% thickness in skin after a series of microdermabrasion procedures. It also kick starts the skin regeneration process.

How often to have it?
Clients should come for a microdermabrasion session every two weeks. A proper skin care program combined with microdermabrasion is key and will augment and enhance the results of the treatment. A series of 6-12 treatments can be carried out. After this you can have maintenance treatments once every three months. The fact that microdermabrasion is performed in a series of treatments allows the clinician to gradually and safely take the skin to new levels of health and beauty without compromising its delicate nature.
What is oxygen facial?
After the microdermabrasion procedure, we apply a mask to your face and can turn up the oxygen flow in order to give you a complete "Oxygen Facial".
The oxygen oxidizes the oily sebum found inside the pores, helping to eliminate the oil as a food source for bacteria which have a role in active acne.

Lofah sponges/facial brushes
Facial scurbs, masks

Experiencing initial dryness, flaking, and a feeling of a mild sunburn is a normal result of the procedure. Excessive swelling or pain must be reported, because it may indicate the onset of an infection. Combined UVA and UVB sun protection should be used to prevent potential hyper pigmentation. In addition, the skin should be kept well hydrated. Makeup can be applied immediately if there is no weeping in the treated area. You may experience some crusting from dried serum after aggressive microdermabrasion when performing superficial scar revision or stretch mark treatments.
