What is microdermabrasion?
Using our MediPro diamond-tipped wand, Microdermabrasion involves the gentle exfoliation of the skin, improving its overall tone and texture. Regular exfoliation is essential as it:
- Repairs and restores youthful skin
- Encourages cell turnover
- Improves skin functions
- Reduces the appearance of acne scarring
- Repairs and restores youthful skin
- Smooths out uneven skin tone
- Allows skin care products to absorb better
DIY Scrubs, is it worth it?
Let’s start off with scrubs: The OG of exfoliation, they are also organic and are easily sourced from ingredients conveniently found in the kitchen. It seems like the obvious solution to overnight radiant skin. However, when you factor in the time spent making the scrubs as well as their short shelf life, is it really worth it?
With scrubs, each granule is of an irregular size and due to the manual exfoliation process, each micro tear made on the skin is uneven and may negatively impact the skin’s healing process. There have been proven cases of scrubs containing crushed walnuts causing damage to the skin.
Whilst DIY scrubs may work for one individual, it may not work for another as skin conditions and priorities differ especially those with sensitive skin. Book in a complimentary consultation to see how you can refresh your skin today!
