Microdermabrasion is the process of using tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin before drawing out the debris and impurities with suction. This procedure removes the dead and dry outer layer of the skin’s surface to reveal the fresh and healthy skin underneath!
But there are many other fantastic advantages to the microdermabrasion treatment:
The internal health of the skin can be vastly improved through the circulation the treatment enhances deep within the skin and an enhanced blood flow means more oxygen and nutrients are supplied that enhances the skin and improves its elasticity.
Microdermabrasion has been shown to enhance the absorption of skincare products by the skin by up to 50%; your skin will be more receptive to the product with better results than it normally would – all by removing the dead skin and promoting circulation!
By clearing blockages and improving the circulation of the skin, microdermabrasion can reduce inflammation and improve natural skin hygiene. Not only that, it can also reduce the actual size of pores.
It can also be beneficial as an anti-ageing treatment as well as also helping with sun damage, pigmentation and acne scarring. With treatment settings that are widely adjustable, our expert therapists are able to tailor the treatment to all individual skin types and problems.
Quite simply, the huge number of benefits and best solutions for troublesome skin is what makes microdermabrasion one of the most popular on the market today.
FAQs – It’s ok to ask for more information – you’re in expert hands!
Am I suitable?
Specific skin problems that benefit from microdermabrasion include: acne and acne scarring, fine lines and forehead wrinkles, ageing skin, dull and tired skin, uneven skin tone, brown spots and blotches, stretch marks, pigmentation and skin blemishes. Although extremely sensitive skin or active acne may not benefit from this treatment, you will be able to discuss expectations and required outcomes during your tailored one-to-one session with our qualified therapists.
Does it hurt?
Unlike many skin rejuvenation treatments, microdermabrasion is non-invasive, so requires little or no recovery time. It is often referred to as the ‘lunchtime facial’ because of its convenience and effectiveness. It can feel like a strong exfoliation but soothing and hydrating products are applied after all treatments.
How long does it take?
A course of six treatments is recommended at one every 2-4 weeks. As the course progresses, this can be altered to suit you and your individual needs. The actual length of a single treatment depends on the size of the area being treated, however, it’s not called the ‘lunchtime facial’ for no reason…
How safe is it?
There may be some slight redness, however, this should only last 24 hours if it occurs at all. However, microdermabrasion is completely safe and all initial treatments are carried out with a low setting that is gradually increased as the treatment progresses. This means that we are continually monitoring your skin and adjusting the strength accordingly. As with most treatments offered at Soprano Ice Edinburgh, a patch test is provided prior to any course commencing.
How long will it last?
A single treatment can remove up to three times the number of dead skin cells in a single session than other exfoliating treatments and we would recommend a course of up to six. A course is to ensure the long lasting effects from microdermabrasion which are encouraging cell renewal, improving elasticity, smoothing the texture of the skin and reducing the signs of ageing.
