Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a deeply effective treatment for renewing a fresh, young-looking glow to your skin. Also removes blemishes and revives dull skin. One of the most effective anti-ageing treatments available, Microdermabrasion is a painless exfoliation deep within the skin using microscopic crystals to gently disrupt unwanted skin cells on the skins surface. Included in each treatment is a Mini-Lift Mask which is an intense, hydrating and lifting mask leaving the skin firm and smooth with visible plumping of lines and wrinkles.
How does the treatment work?
The skin is cleansed to remove oil and dirt. The therapist targets a stream of fine aluminium oxide crystals over the face. The crystals abrade away old, dead skin cells which a vacuum removes from the skin. The Mini-Lift Mask is then applied whilst you are given a luxurious neck and shoulder or hand massage. The mask is then removed and a moisturiser is applied.
How many treatments are required?
A single treatment will leave the skin looking and feeling brighter. For longer lasting and more targeted results a course of five treatments is recommended at weekly intervals.
How will my skin feel immediately after treatment?
Most people feel a slight tightness to the skin, as if the skin has been exposed to the wind. Some often experience mild redness. Both usually subside with 30 minutes to 1 hour of receiving a treatment.
