What is Microdermabrasion?

What is Micro-dermabrasion?

8 September 2020                              Emma Kenny

This question is something that we get asked all the time in the salon so we thought why not write about it!

Micro-dermabrasion for the face and feet are treatments that we offer at Enhance Clarkston. Its main aim is to intensely exfoliate and resurface the skin.

How does Micro-Dermabrasion work?

The way it works is a fine jet of crystals penetrates the skin to gently remove dead skin cells layer by layer, whilst at the same time a vacuum sweeps up both the crystals and the skins cellular debris of the skin.

Does Micro-dermabrasion hurt?

The treatment works on the surface layers of your skin so it IS NOT painful.

Benefits of Micro-dermabrasion

This safe treatment is perfect for reducing fine lines, minor scars, wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, brown spots, enlarged pores/blackheads, acne and sun damage and will make the skin smoother, brighter and younger looking.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types and colours.

How long do the benefits of micro-dermabrasion last?

Skin regenerates itself approximately every 30 days so we would recommend a course of treatments (the amount depends on your skin concern) which will be carried out 7-10 days apart then one a month to maintain the improvements.

You can also opt to have a one off treatment which will smooth and brighten your skin in just the one treatment.

What is the aftercare advice with Micro-dermabrasion?

For 12 hours after treatment avoid heavy makeup.

For 24 hours after treatment avoid swimming, facial waxing, and tan applications.

For 48 hours after treatment avoid saunas, sunbeds, exposure to the sun, botox, collagen injections and dermal fillers.

For 72 hours after treatment do not use any anti-ageing creams, AHA's, Glycolics, retinol or exfoliating products.

At all times during a course wear at least an SPF 15 and avoid sun exposure.

How much does Micro-dermabrasion cost?

At Enhance Clarkston, we use Skinbase Micro-dermabrasion.

We offer three types of treatments

  1. Luxury Micro-dermabrasion Facial which is a one off treatment. It lasts 55 minutes and costs £50.

  2. Express Micro-dermabrasion Facial which comes as a package of 6 treatments for £180 and each session lasts 25 minutes.
