Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a dermaroller with various size microneedles or a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance. It is very cost effective and can be done with previous application of a numbing cream to make it almost painless.

The skin usually heals quickly in couple of days with good texture and radiance.

Microdermabrasion is a lunchtime peel and is aneffective, non- surgical way to decrease acne scars, fine wrinkles and sunspots by removing the top layers of the skin. No chemicals or laser beams are used. Aluminium oxide micro crystals are used that gently sandblast your skin, leaving it smooth and fresh.
