Common questions

Is Microdermabrasion the same as a regular Facial?

No, Microdermabrasions are different to a regular facial, as they use active products and advanced technology to exfoliate the dull, dead, outer surface of the skin, leaving it clear, bright and purified. Microdermabrasion treatments feature the use of diamond-tipped machines and vacuum suction to extract debris from your pores whilst collect dead skin cells.

 

Does microdermabrasion Hurt?

Absolutely not, Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that targets the outermost layers of the skin. The diamond-tipped suction machine feels like tiny sand-like particles running across your face; a strange sensation for first timers but by no means painful.

How many Microdermabrasion treatments do you need to see best results?

A minimum series of three to four treatments is recommended for best results. For acne sufferers, regular fortnightly or monthly treatments can give you long-term control over your skin and breakouts, But straight after the facial you will feel the difference in your skin.

How long does Microdermabrasion take?

Microdermabrasion usually takes around 45 minutes to 1 hour but can take different lengths of time due to extractions, adverse reactions, consultation, ect.
