This is a fabulous treatment that I recommend to incorporate into every facial treatment. Microdermabrasion is a machine that jets crystals onto your skin to remove dead skin cells. It provides a deeper exfoliation to the skin which brightens the skin, assists in regenerating the skin and leaves the skin looking smooth and radiant. The machine also has a suction effect which removes the crystals and dead skin cells from your skin while stimulationg lymph flow and blood circulation. This assists in having an anti ageing effect on the skin. 3 to 4 minutes of microdermabrasion is recommended to do in conjucntion with a facial. A course of treatments with 10 minutes of microderm per session are recommended if you have specific issues on your skin that you wish to treat. As this is exfoliating to the skin, your skin may be more sensitive to the sun so you must ensure that sun protection is applied daily after a treatment. There are no side effects to this treatment...only amazing looking and feeling skin!
