What is DermaVisage Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion (we use DermaVisage) is a process that refreshes and rejuvenates the complexion, leaving a radiant appearance. It can be used to treat the following skin issues:
- Mild acne
- Congested skin
- Ageing skin
What does the treatment involve?
There are two different types of treatment:
- The first treatment involves the use of aluminium oxide crystals. These crystals have a deep, clinical feel. The treatment can be adjusted to work with sensitive skins. It is like an intensive facial scrub with a vacuum to remove dirt and debris.
- The second treatment uses a diamond tip. Diamonds are the hardest substance known to man, which allows for an effective skin exfoliation with no risk of a reaction. Even this process can be used on the most sensitive of skin types.
After consultation, your nurse will advise which treatment is suitable for you.
Does it hurt?
Microdermabrasion should always be comfortable and pain-free, whether crystals or diamond tips are used.
How many treatments are needed?
This all depends on the condition of your skin. Even after one treatment there is a visible difference in the brightness of the skin. Most conditions usually require a minimum of six treatments, followed by maintenance treatments.
Does the treatment cause scarring?
No, far from causing scarring; it can be used to treat scarring, helping to reduce the effects.
