Our Clairderm Microdermabrasion unit uses both Crystals and Diamond Head to provide the mechanical exfoliation of the skin. It removes the top dead skin layer promoting the production of new cells, making room for the newer and more vital skin cells to reveal themselves.
Microdermabrasion is the system of pushing specially refined crystals at high velocity onto the surface of the skin to exfoliate dead skin cells and promote the generation of new skin cells, thereby creating a skin surface which is youthful and glowing. The vacuum suction nozzle performing a dual role: to suction the skin and promote lymphatic drainage and to remove excess crystals and abraded skin cells.
This procedure can be used to treat a number of skin conditions and complaints, and results can be seen following just one treatment. As further treatments are undertaken, results become even clearer to see and feel.
Microdermabrasion provides excellent results for the following conditions;
Fine Lines Enlarged and dilated pores
Dull, stressed and congested skin Sun-damaged skin
Acne Blemishes Skin pigmentation
Rough texture Superficial age spots
Excess oil production Scar reduction

How many treatments are recommended?
We guarantee visible improvements with 4-6 microdermabrasion skin treatments but you will notice a difference from just one treatment. For optimum results we recommend a course of treatments. That is one treatment per fortnight in a course of treatments. Naturally, maintenance is a great idea with one treatment every month or two, once one has achieved the desired skin result.
Is a microdermabrasion treatment more effective for the skin than normal facial treatments?
Yes, the action of the microdermabrasion promotes skin rejuvenation producing new collagen. It does this by providing a superior exfoliation and aids lymphatic processes deep within the skin. This is much more powerful than a stand alone cosmetic product application. The microdermabrasion treatment is strong enough to ensure excellent results on its own, but gentle enough to be used in conjunction with other treatments.
Is there any downtime?
No. Microdermabrasion is not a harsh or deep treatment requiring days to heal. Some redness may occur and this will vary between person to person, however most redness will subside within 24 hours. Make-up can be applied immediately following the procedure enabling you to have the treatment done during your lunch break and then return to work.
Are there any special skin care requirements for me following a microdermabrasion procedure?
By removing the uppermost layer of skin, microdermabrasion encourages new skin cell generation. Procedures can make the skin much more porous and sensitive to sunlight. We recommend that following a microdermabrasion treatment, you diligently apply sunscreen to those areas to prevent sunburn. Being that the skin is so receptive to products, it is in your best interests to now use good skincare in the form of a moisturiser or serum formulated with Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin B which will provide additional nourishment to the new skin cells.
Are there any precautions to take whilst undergoing a microdermabrasion treatment?
It is recommended that invasive procedures are avoided directly before or after a microdermabrasion treatment. Waxing should not be undertaken 2 days prior to a treatment or for at least 7 days following a treatment. We strongly suggest not to use sun beds or swim in heavily chlorinated water for at least 2 weeks following a treatment.
A series of treatments is recommended initially and will give optimum results. Additional treatments at monthly or two monthly intervals will maintain your skin in excellent condition.
