A lovely deep exfoliating treatments to refresh & deep clean your skin
Microdermabrasion skin resurfacing is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it softer and plumper. Skin resurfacing also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Diamond microdermabrasion treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time after treatment.
The length of the treatment and number of treatments vary depending on skin type and condition. Results are gradual but highly effective. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment. It also kick starts the skin regeneration process.
Diamond microdermabrasion-better than crystal microdermabrasion?
Diamond microdermabrasion is the latest form of this treatment and has following advantages over crystal microdermabrasion.
1. No crystals left imbedded in the skin and floating around in the air.
2. No environmentally hazardous material to dispose of after each procedure.
3. No crystals left in the hair and clothes of both the patient and clinician.
4. No need to wear a particle mask or eye protection or remove contacts.
5. No crystals to cause irritation in eyes and airways after the procedures.
Effects are usually seen after the first treatment, with on-going improvements seen week after week during a course. Becky will perform an initial consultation and recommend a course length to you.

What is the cost of this treatment & how many will I need?
We recommend a course of 8, however Becky will talk this through with you following your initial consultation. People with acne or acne scarring might need more treatments and we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment after each course has finished helping maintain the results achieved. You can have a treatment every 7-10 days. Most clients would replace this treatment with a normal facial each month.
Are there any reasons I couldn’t have this treatment?
Pregnant women, cancer, grade 4 acne, medication for acne, auto immune disease, diabetes, impetigo & rosacea. These would all be major contraindications for this treatment. If you have very sensitive skin we would advise a patch test first 24 hours before the treatment.
Children under 16 would need their parents consent.
What is the aftercare advice?
For 12 hours after the treatment we advise no make up unless mineral based. For up to 24 hours, no swimming, facials or waxing. For up to 72 hours, do not use anti ageing creams especially with AHA’s, Glycol’s or Retinol in. Use E45, Aquas cream or brands for sensitive skin only. Do not exfoliate.
Skin care products that contain essential oils can cause an allergic reaction. This can be a common cause of reaction where a client uses their normal skincare products which can be too strong for the skin after treatment. The client thinks the treatment has caused the reaction but it’s 99% of the time not listening to the aftercare provided.
