Microdermabrasion is a fantastic non invasive treatment and is very useful for sun worshippers and people with problem
skin, it can reduce the effects of sun damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring, scar reduction, blackhead removal, hyperpigmentation, oily skin and dry or patchy skin.
There are various grades of microdermabrasion and most good clinics (medical) will offer medical grade microdermabrasion but
unfortunately most beauticians cannot offer this level of treatment. Essentially microdermabrasion is a very thorough and deep exfoliation. Usually you need to have about 5 treatments spaced apart by a few weeks, then a refresh treatment every 6 months or so. This can be seen as an alternative to facial peeling.
IPL (intense pulsed light) is another non invasive treatment that is fantastic if you want to reduce unsightly hair or if you suffer with skin problems including rosacea and acne. Various treatments may be necessary to ensure you achieve the results you require, however, you can usually see a difference after just one treatment. IPL is good for the whole body and not just the face – men in particular like it to reduce unwanted back hair. Women with facial hair generally find IPL to be a much better treatment than waxing or shaving and after a few treatments start to feel more ‘normal’, thus reducing unnecessary stress.
With all these treatments, it’s about what you want to achieve and what you feel you require, because, at the end of the day you are the one that looks in the mirror and is happy or not with what you see. These treatments will have you smiling.
