Microdermabrasion is an ultra-advanced facial scrub and is used to soften the appearance of acne scarring and other surface irregularities, leaving a polished and smooth surface.
Microdermabrasion has the advantage of no downtime and the results are remarkable.
Microdermabrasion also makes the skin more receptive to massage. A natural moisturiser is applied to the skin with acupressure massagers.
Using light pressure with the massagers the skins natural production of vitamins and collagen is stimulated, renewing elasticity to the epidermis.
Microdermabrasion and acupressure massage create a feeling of wellbeing, revitalising the skin as naturally as possible for a healthier complexion.

How does Microdermabrasion work?
Microdermabrasion is performed by using specialised rotating diamond hand piece, across the skins’ surface to remove the dead and damaged cells. The therapist can control the depth of the abrasion.
What are the benefits?
A controlled microdermabrasion treatment:
- is safe
- is precise and carried out on localised areas
- is not dangerous or painful
- has results which are very successful and lasting
- can be applied on any type of skin
How long does a treatment take?
Treatments are usually performed in 45 minutes and your therapist can recommend how many would be of most benefit to you.
What should I expect after the treatment?
After the treatment the skin may feel tight as if exposed to the sun or wind. Some skins may peel and it is important to use good moisturisers as advised by the therapist.
If deeper treatment is performed, there may be marked redness and swelling which will subside within a few days. Healing time varies from 3 to 4 days or longer, but the results are worthwhile.
How much does it cost?
One session costs £53 but the number of treatments required depends on the individual. We also offer a course of six treatments for optimum results.
