At Cosmeticdoctor, Slievemore Clinic we are seeing an increasing popularity in Microdermabrasion treatments.

Summer is on the way and we are all looking for that ‘quick fix’ to slough away dull winter skin and reveal a fresher, brighter complexion. The best way to achieve this is to book in with your advanced practitioner here at the Slievemore clinic for a microdermabrasion session. Microdermabrasion was made popular during the 1990’s by Supermodel Cindy Crawford, but the treatment has come a long way since it was first introduced. Now you can have a medical microdermabrasion session, and start to see the results as soon as the first treatment. We do recommend a course of treatment to really see the benefits. We would advise our clients to have a course of four microdermabrasion treatments – ten days to two weeks apart.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion uses ‘closed loop’ technology. Basically we use a small hand piece to deliver crystals to the skin, and then they are removed through the other side of the hand piece, so clean new crystals are constantly hitting the surface of the skin, and the used crystals are removed immediately. This action of mechanical exfoliation sloughs away the dead skin cells from the surface layers of your skin. The vacuum and crystals also help to stimulate collagen production which thickens the dermis, and helps us slow down the effects of ageing. This new skin is more receptive to nutrients, so you will see the benefits of your skincare regime after your microdermabrasion session. With continued treatments you will expect to see healthier and fresher skin, with a more even and balanced complexion.
