Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure which uses tiny crystals to gently buff away dead skin cells rejuvenating your complexion. The treatment is simple, non-invasive and does not require anaesthetic. Microdermabrasion uses a specially designed hand piece to deliver a small amount of fine crystals which exfoliates the surface of the skin. The crystals gently buff away dead skin cells which are vacuumed up and discarded. The process takes around 30 minutes and can leave the skin slightly sensitive afterwards and does not require down time.
Microdermabrasion triggers the production of new collagen to help rehydrate and replenish the skin. This collagen helps with the skins plumpness which softens the skin and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The depth of the abrasion can be altered depending on two factors; the types of crystals used and the speed at which the hand piece is moved across the skin Aluminium oxide crystals are irregular in shape which gives a deeper more abrasive exfoliation. Quartz silica crystals are round microspheres that are less harsh on the skin and provide a gentle exfoliation in comparison. The type of microdermabrasion recommended will depend on your complexion and individual needs.

“I just wanted to turn back time because I’m young at heart and I don’t like to see an old woman looking back at me! I had four treatments in total and I barely recognise myself! It really works and I certainly look much younger!”

“Before I came to Crystal Clear Skin, I had tried so many other ways to lose weight. I felt unhappy about myself because of my weight, and refused to go up another pant size! The 3d-lipo program changed my life and the way I eat, look, and feel. I was surprised that the weight was coming off so quickly, and I loved that I could still cook my own food; I am a chef, so that was very important to me! I work in a kitchen 5 days a week but was able to lose the weight because I could still cook for myself. I love the way I feel now! I feel like I have the confidence to take on anything in life.”

“After the first treatment I noticed the difference and so did my friends. They commented on my ‘gorgeous skin’ many of them said I looked younger! I’m so much more confident now, I feel great!”
