What is Microdermabrasion?
If you want to improve the appearance of your skin’s texture, pigmentation, acne scarring, fine lines or uneven skin tone, you’ll love microdermabrasion at Angel Touch! This treatment increases microcirculation, bringing nutrients to the skin and greatly improving the appearance of all imperfections. The procedure is a non-surgical exfoliation technique that removes dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin.
SALON SECRET: This is a favourite treatment amongst our male clients who are looking for a refreshed, deep cleansing and squeaky-clean feel!
What does the procedure do?
Microdermabrasion (Micro) buffs the surface layer of the skin to reduce fine lines, pigmentation marks and shallow acne scars. The process also accelerates the regeneration of new skin cells and stimulates the production of collagen and strengthens elastin. This effectively plumps the skin out and reveals fresher, healthier and younger looking skin.
This procedure can treat any of the following conditions:
- Ageing skin
- Sun damage
- Acne and scarring
- Pigmentation marks
- Dry & dull skin
- Fine lines
- Enlarged and clogged pores
How does it work?
This treatment is hygienic, painless and safe. We have two different types of Microdermabrasion, Diamond Tip or Organic Flower Peel Grains, either is customised to your skin concerns, needs and level of intensity required for exfoliation. Your therapist will discuss these with you on the day and help you choose a treatment that will give you maximum results.
What can I expect pre and post Microdermabrasion?
The procedure will be customised for your special skin concerns without any inconvenience or down time. You may experience some slight redness depending on the strength of procedure chosen by your qualified therapist, but this will fade within 24 hours. A light dusting of mineral makeup can be applied at the completion of your treatment if you wish.
Things to note: While the results of the treatment differ from client to client, microdermabrasion is not recommended if you have fine, sensitive skin. We advise clients to avoid waxing the two days prior to your treatment and five days after. We also strongly advise against the use of sun beds and swimming in heavily chlorinated water for at least two weeks post-treatment. If you have broken capillaries or have active breakouts, we recommend you discuss alternative treatments such as Dermalux LED or Peels with your therapist to help strengthen, repair and calm your skin.
We can also customise any facial by adding on Micro just to your nose or chin should you need it.
Organic Flower Peel Microdermabrasion
Our Flower peel is less aggressive microdermabrasion using pure organic flower grains to slough off dead skin cells leaving your skin feeling smooth and fresh. A second peel is then performed using a serum infusion to rehydrate, while promoting new skin and collagen growth.
The outcome and procedure is very similar to our diamond Micro but in a much gentler form and for those that love all things organic.
Allow 45mins – $109
Flower Peel add On to any facial $49
Our Diamond micro is for tougher skin using a Diamond head tip to slough off dead skin leaving your skin feeling beautifully smooth. We finish out micro off with a hydrating mask to ensure your skin will be feeling as plumped, hydrated and smooth as possible.
