MICRO-DERMABRASION

With photo-damage we develop an hyperkeratosis, an increase of the percentage of dead cells compared to the living cells at the surface of your skin (epidermis). 

Your skin looks dull, doesn't have a fresh look.

The modified composition of the epidermis creates a defective barrier function of the skin. It increases the trans-epidermal water loss, at the origin of dry and rough skin, lose of elasticity, large pores and fine lines.

The efficacy of topicals is reduced because they are absorbed by the layer of dead cells and find a reduced number of living cells. 

 

Micro-Dermabrasion provides a non-surgical safe method of gently removing dead skin cells from the uppermost surface of the skin. 

SYSTEM USED

Diamond Peel Dermabrasion System, rated by many specialists as the world's leading microdermabrasion.

This is an incredibly innovative and effective treatment, favoured by patients for its immediate, dramatic and long lasting results. 

 

HOW IT WORKS

This multifunctional treatment delivers gentle, controlled skin exfoliation. 

A small stainless steel head which contains miniature diamond grains creates a very light abrasion to remove any imperfections. As the head moves across the skin’s surface,
 a mild suction hygienically disposes of old skin cells whilst stimulating cellular renewal and collagen production that will then result in clear and smooth skin.The vacuum, by stimulating the micro-circulation (veins, arteries and lymphatics), also promotes the elimination of toxins and a quicker healing.

INDICATIONS

Hyperkeratosis, enlarged pores and dull skin, congested skin, stretch marks, fines lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scaring.

Suitable for all skin colour and type as the abrasion levels can be adjusted according to the individuals’ skin.

DURATION OF TREATMENT

Approx. 30 min.

RECOVERY TIME / DOWN TIME

Possible redness of the skin for several hours after the treatment.

This system, less abrasive than crystal-based systems or chemical peels, virtually eradicates the risk of skin infection and scarring.

RESULTS *

A clearer and smoother skin.

Visible immediately, with optimal result after a course of 6 treatments.

PRE TREATMENT CONSULTATION

As for all the procedures proposed, the treatment will only be administered after a free pre-treatment consultation.

During this consultation, the concerns of the patient will be discussed, a full assessment carried out, a tailored treatment proposed, alternative options, prices, cautions and contraindications discussed. 

Finally, written and detailed information will be given to the patient who will be able to take it away and read it before making their decision.

*Please be aware that results and benefits may vary from patient to patient

depending on factors factors such as age, lifestyle and medical history.
