medical microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non – invasive method of skin resurfacing, lt will increase the blood supply and produce nutrients for skin regeneration, repair and increased cellular activity.  Microdermabrasion improves the skins elasticity, texture and balances the natural pigment colouring in the skin, by using microcrystals.  These fine microcrystals are enough to gently disrupt the dead skin cells that case dull and tired looking skin.  When the treatment has removed these cells your body will work to replace them with fresh, healthier looking skin, giving a more radiant, tighter and glowing appearance to the skin. 

Other benefits to microdermabrasion include reducing fine lines and wrinkles, scarring and pigmentation which will all produce a brighter rejuvenated tighter skin!
