Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment which exfoliates and stimulates the skin by using mildly abrasive crystals and a vacuum pressure. In essence, this is a mechanical peel rather than a chemical one.
After microdermabrasion, we apply good moisturising creams or serums. These are very readily absorbed by the skin after treatment for greater effect and leave the skin feeling soft and refreshed.
The effects over a course of treatment are an improvement in skin smoothness and texture, reduction of fine lines, and improvement in blackheads and acne outbreaks.
Microdermabrasion can improve the skin in general and is of potential benefit to a range of common problems and conditions, including:
In general, microdermabrasion results in healthier, more youthful looking skin which is brighter, fresher and more radiant.
Over the course of a full set of treatments, the repeated intensive exfoliation stimulates the body to produce new skin cells. The new layers of skin contain higher levels of elastin and collagen, which improves the tone of the skin as well as boosting complexion for a more radiant, vibrant glow.
At Mulberry House Clinic, we often combine microdermabrasion with a course of chemical peels. This gives more flexibility in the treatment approach and a stronger overall result.
This combination of microdermabrasion with peels offers pleasant treatments that make a short and medium-term difference to your skin.
