Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion at SkinSpirit

The ultimate in skin exfoliation, stimulation and brightening, Microdermabrasion can be used to improve the appearance of acne and scarring. This treatment uses aluminium oxide crystals which are passed across the skin using a vacuum handpiece. This deeply exfoliates the skin and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, resulting in an invigorated and revived complexion.  

Helping to unclog pores, remove dead skin cells, prompt collagen and elastin production and improve blood flow, the short- and long-term benefits of this treatment are impressive. Skin will be left feeling softer and smoother with a healthy glow. Safe for most skin types, this painless, non-invasive treatment delivers great improvements to skin health.



Benefits:

  • Intense exfoliation and skin smoothing
  • Stimulates dermal collagen and elastin production
  • Brightens the skin and improves blood flow

Treatment Details

Using a superior vacuum and a specially designed hand piece, aluminium oxide crystals are passed across the skin. As the crystals make contact, layers of the stratum corneum are exfoliated, and then vacuumed away with the used crystals. 

The combination of skin exfoliation and vacuuming stimulates fibroblasts to produce new healthy, living cells in the basal layer of the epidermis, leading to improved cell turnover and blood flow.

An impressive skin rejuvenation treatment, Microdermabrasion can be used to improve the appearance of acne and scarring and prevent future acne breakouts. Skin tone and texture are improved, revealing a revitalised complexion. 

For most people and skin types, Microdermabrasion doesn’t require any post-treatment downtime so can be slotted into your busy day without any inconvenience.

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.
