Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that is commonly used to improve the appearance of common skin concerns such as sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, enlarged pores, blackheads as well as revitalizing of dull complexions.
There are various forms of microdermabrasion which include:
Diamond Tip – The treatment works by utilizing a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
Crystal – This technique sprays fine particles of aluminium oxide or sodium bicarbonate with a vacuum/suction to achieve exfoliation and resurfacing.
Hydro – Utilizes fluid to more gently remove the surface layer dead skin cells. More suited to those with extremely sensitive skin.
