A treatment which is becoming increasingly popular for a ´quick skin fix´ is microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion gently sandblasts the skin and is ideal for person having some excess oil´.
The Microdermabrasion machine is the latest in technology from USA and comes with a full FDA accreditation. Essentially, fine jets of crystals are directed at the skin, and then a vacuum sucks them back up.
Microdermabrasion is used to treat many skin problems. From dull, grey complexions to skin with excessive oil and minor acne scarring, this super exfoliate can control and reverse the condition of skin over time.
During the procedure, it is normal to experience a slight tingling (no pain) as the treatment stimulates the collagen and the elastin produced. It is recommended to have a course of treatments at 1 per week for 6 weeks, then one per month after this,
Aftercare is simple with guidelines not to shave for 24 hours and to avoid swimming pool, sauna and acid based skin creams for 3-5 days. As with any type of skin and treatment, it is recommended to use the correct moisturiser and sun blocking agents.
Nu Cosmetic clinics offer Microdermabrasion alongside a whole host of other non surgical procedures.
