Your questions about Microdermabrasion.
How quickly can I expect to see results?
You will see the results immediately and with each subsequent treatment your skin will continue to look better.
How many treatments should I have?
Your therapist will talk this through with you following your initial consultation. People with acne or acne scarring might need more treatments, and we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment after a course to maintain the results achieved.
How often should I have a microdermabrasion treatment?
Treatments are usually performed every 7 to 10 days, but your therapist will confirm this with you.
Are there any side effects to the treatment?
After the treatment, the skin may feel tight with mild redness. Therefore it is essential that you use a good moisturiser, your therapist will be able to advise you on this. These effects normally subside within 36 hours of treatment.
I have suffered reactions to other facials. Will this be the same with microdermabrasion?
Crystal microdermabrasion uses a sterile compound with zero risk of allergic reaction. Your therapist will provide a patch test on the back of your forearm for added reassurance.
Is microdermabrasion only suitable for use on the face?
No. Microdermabrasion is fantastic on pigmentation, lines and stretch marks anywhere on the body.
