Microdermabrasion

The Secret to Glowing Skin - A non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation, regular exfoliation with MD does wonders for a dull and lacklustre complexion. To get the most out of your at-home skincare products you need to remove old build up before anti-ageing creams and serums can really penetrate and take effect. Microdermabrasion treatment does this by using tiny crystals to slough away old skin cells, clear blocked pores and polish the face. An immediate improvement can be seen after treatment. MD is a firm celebrity favourite, New York City dermatologist David Colbert, M.D., who treats Sienna Miller and Rachel Weisz, says: “When HDTV kicked in, it became our most sought-after pre-awards show procedure, we had to open a second office!”.

Exfoliation with MD provides a great base for an even application of makeup. Mineral makeup can even be applied straight after treatment. MD has also been proven to enhance the barrier function of the skin resulting in increased hydration. (source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/)

What Skin Problems Can Be Treated? -
Acne and Acne Scarring: Microdermabrasion works by removing the top layers of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface making it particularly effective in treating acne. Eliminating dead skin cells unclogs pores and minimises sebum production reducing the chance of new spots developing.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles, Ageing Skin: As we age elastin and collagen production starts to slow down. The vacuum action of the microdermabrasion treatment works to stimulate blood flow, promoting elastin and collagen production. The combination of collagen stimulation and increased skin renewal will improve the condition of the skin’s surface smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Dull and Tired Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Dry and Dehydrated Skin: Normally skin renews itself approximately every 28 days. By removing the dead cells from the top layer of the epidermis, microdermabrasion speeds up the rate at which skin replenishes to reveal new, fresh skin and a radiant glow.
Cellulite ‘orange peel effect’: Microdermabrasion can’t cure cellulite however it will stimulate the circulation improving blood flow to the area. To improve the appearance of cellulite make sure you drink plenty of water and exercise regularly.
Pigmentation and Blemishes, Stretch Marks: Microdermabrasion can vastly improve the appearance of pigmentation and stretch marks. The microdermabrasion treatment promotes a ‘lifting and smoothing’ effect, improving skin condition and diminishing the appearance of stretch marks and discolouration.
