Microdermabrasion is a revolutionary method for deep exfoliation. The surface of our skin is constantly subject to the dulling and damaging effects of every day environmental factors such as UV light, artificial heat or cooling, and pollution. Over time these factors cause a build up of dead and congested skin cells which lead to a lifeless, tired and aging complexion. Microdermabrasion revitalises by polishing the skin of its dead outer layers, and stimulating skin renewal, to reveal fresher more youthful looking skin.
How does Microdermabrasion work?
At Nova we select from two advanced microdermabrasion techniques, depending on your skin type, requirements and results. Crystal Microdermabrasion uses a controlled stream of non-allergenic crystals to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells and outer layers, ideal for refreshing skin, and stimulating cell renewal. Diamond Microdermabrasion is a medical dermabrasion using diamond tipped wand and suction to work off congestion and thicker layers of dead skin. The diamond wand can be worked into lines and wrinkles to smooth the surface and efficiently lift dry and dull skin.
How does Microdermabrasion feel?
Microdermabrasion is a comfortable procedure with a slightly rough but not unpleasant feel. The treatment is always expertly combined with our cosmeceutical skin care ranges for full cleanse and rehydration of the skin, making the overall experience one of an advanced therapeutic facial.
Why is Microdermabrasion beneficial?
Microdermabrasion is suitable for almost all skin types and can be used to treat a range of skin concerns. The gentle removal of outer layer, not only refreshes and brightens skin's appearance but also stimulates the process of cell renewal, and the production of collagen and elastin, making this an excellent anti-aging treatment. Microdermabrasion is effective in reducing the visibility of brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and smoothing rough dull skin.
What Preparation and Aftercare is required?
Microdermabrasion is a relatively gentle treatment and requires no real preparation other than the thorough cleansing of the skin, which is performed during treatment. Following treatment our aestheticians recommend keeping skin clean and make up free for the rest of the day, and continued use of a broad spectrum SPF to protect against UV damage. Microdermabrasion has minimal downtime, although skin may look a little pink after treatment, most people start to notice the beneficial effects of microdermabrasion soon after.
