Microdermabrasion is rapidly becoming one of the most popular superficial peeling therapies. It is non-surgical, safe and effective.
Microdermabrasion is effective in treating active scars, open pores, fine lines, discolouration, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots and stretch marks.
There is no healing time and results are visible immediately. However, a course of treatments is often recommended to achieve maximum effects.
An Alpha Hydroxy Acid Treatment is a safe, superficial exfoliation procedure that requires no “down time” (i.e. need to stay home or take off work). The application of the professional strength acid itself is performed as part of a corrective treatment designed to give the skin the maximum exfoliation with minimum irritation.
What can I expect to feel during the alpha hydroxy acid peel application? A stinging, prickly or itching sensation is felt by most individuals, however, depending on your skin’s own sensitivity level, you may experience very little to no sensation at all.
What can I expect in the days following my treatment? The side effects can range from: No visible side effects to mild flaking of the skin and/or mild redness to small blisters and mild scabbing.
What difference can I expect to see in my skin?
Although no guarantee is made as to the outcome, most people feel the skin is much smoother and with subsequent treatments, in combination with the recommended homecare, it is not uncommon to see dark spots fade, fine lines become minimized, fewer blackheads, reduced oil production and fewer breakouts
