FAQ's

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion uses a combination of vacuum suction and exfoliation to polish away dead skin cells and unclog pores revealing a softer and smoother complexion.

 

Am I suitable for Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types. Your treatment can be customized by adjusting the suction level to suit your comfort during treatment. Always commence your treatment with the lower suction and increase to suit your comfort levels.

 

How much Pressure do I apply?

Microdermabrasion is very comfortable. No firm pressure is required, simply hold the skin taut and glide the suction tip over the skin. Red marks can occur when the suction tip is held over the same spot for too long or if the suction level is too high. The Microdermabrasion Tool may exfoliate beyond the surface dead skin if unnecessary pressure is applied.

Do I need to do anything in between treatments?
