Microdermabrasion in London
Microdermabrasion is a safe, controlled system of intense exfoliation and resurfacing using ultra fine crystals that rejuvenate the skin. The crystals work as a gentle abrasive on the skin to remove dead skin cells layer by layer. The irregular shape of the crystals helps to work on hard to reach areas without any damage to the skin.
The treatment is progressive meaning our clients will continue to see results over the course of treatment.
The degree of epidermal abrasion can be varied by altering the crystal’s speed when impacting on the skin. The removal of the stratum corneum results in skin that feels instantly smoother and fresher, whilst promoting new skin and collagen growth. Over a course of treatment your skin will be left ‘glowing’ and will feel rejuvenated.
The vacuum action draws away used crystals and dead skin cells and also works to stimulate the circulation and promotes increased blood flow to the area. The production of collagen and elastin is stimulated, which results in a firmer, more youthful looking skin.
Microdermabrasion can be used for all skin types on all areas of the body and face. Dermaesthetics Clinic recommend a course of 8, usually performed every 7 to 10 days. People with acne or acne scarring might need more treatments and we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment after the course has finished to help maintain the results achieved. After the treatment, the skin may feel tight with mild redness. Therefore it is important that clients use a good moisturiser. These effects normally subside within 24 hours of treatment.

Microdermabrasion is a popular, non - surgical treatment to achieve a younger and healthier complexion. The treatment uses microcrystals to exfoliate the skin and the mild suction during the process removes dry and dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion is an effective way to enhance the natural glow of your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion is an ideal treatment for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and wrinkles, sun damaged and uneven skin tone, acne prone skin, blackheads, whiteheads, superficial age spots and hyperpigmentation and excessive oiliness or dry skin. Prior to your treatment you will have a free consultation where all your questions are answered by a nurse counsellor and you are assessed for your suitability to proceed. Please note, Medical Microdermbrasion is not a suitable treatment for clients who have visible broken blood vessels.
The skin is cleansed and the prep solution is applied prior to treatment. A highly controlled flow of medical grade crystals is then passed over the skin using a hand held device. These crystals, delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin's surface are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells with it. This mechanical exfoliation process improves both the tone and texture of the skin and also reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft and smooth. At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the treatment, promoting new collagen, thickening the dermis and improving the resistance to the effects of ageing. After the procedure, the treatment will finish with the application of anti-oxidant moisturiser and SPF 30 to hydrate and provide sun protection for your skin.
The vacuum capacity used in CrystalMircrodermabrasion is significantly stronger than what is used during a standard microdermabrasion treatment, therefore providing much deeper penetration on the skin's surface and guaranteeing better overall results.
Crystal Microdermabrasion is a non - invasive, painless procedure, although you may experience slight discomfort for a short time as the aluminium crystals are delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin's surface. However, the controls of the hand - held device and vacuum capacity are flexible, so you can opt for a less intense treatment.
After having your Crystal Microdermabrasion treatment you may experience slight redness in the first 48 hours. Some customers, dependent on skin type may experience slight shedding but this is a natural side effect and nothing to be worried about. We recommend customers to avoid heavy make-up (or if desire can use mineral make-up witch will not interact with the treatment), heat treatments such as saunas, sun beds, hot baths and vigorous exercise 24 hours after having treatment.
We recommend that you book the course of six Microdermabrasion treatments, to have every 7 to 10 days and then maintain top-up treatments every fourweeks. Due to the incredible results, customers often want to continue having treatments, so a maintenance treatment will be booked every 4 weeks. Your therapist will recommend products to use at home to enhance your results.
