Does it hurt?

No, it does not.  Most clients tolerate the treatment very well and most finding it very relaxing.  The sensation experienced is slightly scratchy and warming but this disappears very quickly once the treatment is finished.  Although a difference can be seen after only one treatment, a course of treatments is recommended to achieve deeper longer lasting results.  The average complete cell turnover is four to five weeks and it will be at the end of this time that the full results can be seen. The treatments consists of, thermotherapy, microdermabrasion, skin peeler (Removal of millia and blackheads), Mask (Customised for your skin type) ending with cryotherapy to close the pores.

How often do I need a treatment?

Once the cosmetic treatment practitioner has established your requirements from the treatment, they will recommend a treatment programme.  The typical length of time between treatments is 14 to 28 days but this can be adjusted.

For example:

Acne – mild medical microdermabrasion with light therapy once a week for six treatments

Acne scarring – medical microdermabrasion 14 days apart for six to eight treatments; increased vacuum every treatment (this is gauged by your skin’s response and tolerance.

Fine lines/wrinkles/pigmentation – medical microdermabrasion 14 to 28 days apart for six treatments; increased vacuum every treatment (this is gauged by your skin’s response and tolerance).

Do I need maintenance treatment after my course?

Yes, we do advise that you maintain your results with regular treatments, ideally once a month.

How long does the treatment take?

Approximately 30 minutes, so it is very quick and is safe for you to apply your makeup immediately after treatment.

What should I do after the treatment?

The cosmetic treatment practitioner will provide a full sheet of aftercare instructions.
