Microdermabrasion is a general term used to describe the application of tiny rough grains to exfoliate and buff away the dry dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
This treatment can be carried out using many different types of exfoliating products with or without additional equipment.
The action of Microdermabrasion is to deeply exfoliate the dead skin cells which build up on the surface giving the skin a flat, dull and shallow appearance.
The term is also used to describe the clinic, salon or spa based treatment known as a Microdermabrasion facial, and this is one of the many facial treatments we offer here at Whitethorn Fields Mediclinic.
The microdermabrasion machine uses micro-pulses which massage the surface of the skin, which stimulates the tissues increasing the circulation and improving the cellular interchange and renewal of skin cells.
This is an ideal treatment to have as a booster for your skin prior to any special occasion such as a wedding or party or post holiday when the skin has been exposed to the harsh elements of sun, sea, sand and other wonderful holiday excesses!
Our Microdermabrasion treatment is approximately 55 minutes and is incorporated together with our advanced award winning Hydropeptide skin care products to enhance your treatment.
