  • ABOUT MICRODERMABRASION

    Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion is an effective and clinically proven treatment that removes dead skin from the face, improves the texture and appearance of the skin. In turn, it can help reduce the appearance of visible lines, smoothing the skin and producing a more beautiful rejuvenated skin. 

    The cosmetic treatment can be used for problem skin, pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, scarring and body treatments

  • TREATMENT AREAS

    Popular Treatment areas include Face, Arms and Back

    Microdermabrasion is recommended for Uneven skin tone and appearance, fine lines and wrinkles and congested Pores

  • HOW DOES IT WORK?

    Microdermabrasion treatment utilises inert corundum crystals that blast at the skin’s surface. The crystals gently lift off the dead skin cells and the vacuum action removes the crystals and dead skin cells to leave a totally revitalised smooth and glowing skin. 

    It can be used to treat lines, wrinkles, dull dehydrated skin, sun damaged skin, skin laxity and acne scarring. The treatment gently lifts and removes dull, dead skin cells, layer by layer.
