What is microdermabrasion?
It’s an advanced exfoliating technique in which the surface layer of dead skin cells is gently removed using a handheld machine. The treatment aims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and generally encourage brighter complexions.
What happens at sessions?
In addition to the microdermabrasion itself, each appointment concludes with an application of moisturiser to the area treated. Customers opting for two sessions are advised to leave at least one week between them.
Which areas can be treated?
Typically microdermabrasion is used on the face, but clients can opt instead to treat an area such as the neck, knees, hands, feet, arms or chest.
How can people prepare?
Clients are advised to avoid the use of chemical creams, electrolysis, peeling cosmetics and waxing for five days before each session.
What does aftercare involve?
Recipients of the treatment should wash their faces using only cold or tepid water for the first day, and avoid lotions and products with harsh ingredients. Their skin may look slightly red at first, but this fades over the following couple of days.
Choose from the following options for microdermabrasion:
£18 for one session (65% off)
