What is Micro-Dermabrasion
Micro-dermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive treatment that propels natural mineral crystals onto the surface of the skin for gentle epidermal abrasion that reveals newer, healthier, younger skin.
MICRO CONTROLLED PEELING gently removes epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin imperfections. It is especially effective for skin ageing. The powerful peeling action triggers the skin’s repair mechanism to produce healthy epidermal tissue growth, improving skin tone and elasticity.
Which skin problems can be treated?
This system gradually abrades epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin problems:
- sun-damaged skin
- uneven and granular skin
- fine lines and wrinkles
- enlarged pores
- blackheads and comedones
- superficial scars
- some stretch marks
How long does it take?
Each treatment takes 30 to 45 minutes. When combined with other anti-ageing treatments, it takes 45 minutes to 1.5 hour.
How many treatments will I need?
Age and skin condition determine the number of treatments required to achieve optimum effect. For most skin disorders, a minimum of six treatments is recommended. Results can be seen in both the texture and the appearance of the skin after just one session. Closely spaced treatments, combined with maintenance sessions, will result in better skin quality and may postpone the first lifting treatments for some years.
Can Micro Controlled Peeling be used on the body?
There are virtually no areas of the body that would not benefit from micro-dermabrasion. When used in the exfoliation mode, it can be performed on the entire body, face, neck, and neckline, with a second sweep on any areas of hyperpigmentation or with textural irregularities. It can even be performed on the hands.

RF Skin Tightening
As we age, sagging of the facial skin occurs slowly over the years due to the prolonged effect of gravity. Skin slowly loses its elasticity due to a decrease in the supportive components of our skin including elastin fibres, collagen fibres, and hyaluronic acid which degrade faster than they are rebuilt. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles appear on the forehead, chin, around the eyes and near the lips. Loss of underlying fat also occurs on the face below the eyes, upper eyelids, cheeks, lips and temples leading to a hollow look below the eyes and the cheeks appearing less full.
