What is microdermabrasion?
It is a non surgical way to freshen and rejuvenate the skin on your face. It gently sands the skin removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.
Microdermabrasion is used to treat light scarring, discolouration & sun damage and can be used to lessen the appearance of stretch marks among other conditions.
Collagen is a skin protein which makes skin appear hydrated and smooth. Collagen production declines with age resulting in loose, uneven skin. This technique helps to thicken the collagen, giving a younger looking complexion. Microdermabrasion uses a diamond tipped wand to slough off the top layer (epidermis) of your skin and stimulate new skin growth.
