Microdermabrasion is carried out by our highly qualified therapists, using their expertise to deliver a treatment that is tailored to your skin. Treatment usually lasts around 30 – 40 minutes and multiple treatments may be required to achieve optimal results. We recommend your appointments are spaced 2 -4 weeks apart.
Microdermabrasion is an ideal treatment to form part of your regular skin care regime and we recommend monthly treatments to maintain the best results. Results are visible after just 1 session but can be improved with multiple treatments. We can also add a resurfacer to the treatment to further enhance resutls.

Science & Technology
Fine aluminium oxide crystals and a vacuum are used to achieve deeply exfoliating results. The waste material that is vacuumed from the skin is kept separate from the fresh crystals and is passed into the waste unit, which is fitted with a valve, so no backward flow of crystal is possible.

Your therapist will recommend any skincare products that could further improve the results of your treatment and the health and appearance of your skin. As an independent clinic, you can be sure you will receive impartial, professional advice.
