Targeted Microdermabrasion in Plymouth, by Radiant Skincare & Beauty to remove dead skin cells.
Local, Professional Microdermabrasion Treatments
Microdermabrasion is a targeted treatment using a professional device. It consists of a buffering disk with oxidised crystals, combined with gentle suction to remove the build-up of dry, unwanted dead skin cells. This safe, minimally invasive treatment can also reduce fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tones. This type of skin rejuvenation can treat light scarring, discolouration, sun damage, stretch marks and is safe for all skin types. You will begin to see changes in your skin immediately after the first treatment. I have two types of Microdermabrasion packages, the Freshen up package and the more luxurious Elite Microdermabrasion package.
The Freshen Up Microdermabrasion includes skin analysis, treatment, hydrating face mask, serum, moisturiser and SPF. The Elite Microdermabrasion incorporates the ‘Freshen Up’ with an additional full facial massage with essential oils and an eye massage with soothing gel.
You cannot have this treatment if you are:
- on any blood thinners including Aspirin;
- on Roaccutane.
For 7 days prior to treatment, you should avoid:
- sun exposure;
- sunbeds and tanning creams;
- waxing and chemical hair removal creams.
- Wear a minimum of SPF 30.
- Avoid direct sunlight for 48 hours.
- Avoid steam rooms, saunas, and swimming for 48 hours.
How do you know what grade Microdermabrasion pad to use?
The grade of the Microdermabrasion pad is chosen to suit the individual’s skin type.
What is the minimum timeframe for repeating microdermabrasion?
The minimum timeframe for repeating is 2 weeks.
What are the side effects of Microdermabrasion?
Instantly after your microdermabrasion treatment, your skin may appear slightly pink in colour and sensitive but will settle very quickly.
What is the recommended course time?
The recommended course would be 4-6 sessions, with each session being 2 weeks apart depending on your skin concerns. You will achieve the best results after a full course of treatment.
I have active acne but I’m not on any treatment, can I still have Microdermabrasion?
Unfortunately, you cannot have this treatment with active acne due to the risk of infection.
