What is Medical Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a mechanical form of skin exfoliation using an abrasive diamond cut combined with suction.
It exfoliates the upper layers of the skin and stimulates collagen growth in the lower layers.

The intensity can be varied to suit an individuals’ skin concerns from light exfoliation to deep resurfacing. Subsequently you see an improvement in the skin’s texture, more even colouring, fine lines, fewer break outs, refined pores, renewed elasticity and a more youthful appearance.
Diamond & Suction
Suction controls the depth of treatment, as well as velocity of material (high suction, high velocity) and stimulates the blood flow for the oxygenated and nourishment benefits, while activating the lymph system for natural cleansing and draining. Suction is essential for the full regenerating possibilities.
