What is a microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive mechanical exfoliation treatment that helps to rejuvenate the skin. It involves the use of a device that has a diamond tipped wand which gently buffs away any dead skin cells resulting in smoother, brighter skin. This treatment also helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone & sun damage, the process is very gentle and suitable for most skin types.

A typical microdermabrasion treatment lasts around 30-60 minutes but here at snap beauty we include this into a hydrate me facial, which is a facial that includes a double cleanse, Microderm, ultrasonic, hydrating serums & we finish with SPF as your skin will be sensitive after this treatment. Usually with microdermabrasions you will have a few different sessions as this will maintain your results, you may see a result after 1 session but it won’t last.

After you have had a microdermabrasion treatment your skin may feel slightly tight, it will appear slightly red but goes down within a few hours. Avoid sun exposure as we have removed a layer of your skin meaning your skin will be a lot more sensitive, make sure to carry on applying a type of SPF after your treatment to protect your skin from sun damage.

We recommend having them once a month, to see long term effects. You can book yourself in for a skin consultation here, if you would like to know further information or ask any questions regarding the suitability of this treatment for your skin type & concerns.
