Microdermabrasion – What you need to know

Microdermabrasion – What you need to know

Everyone these days seems to be talking about microdermabrasion, peels or IPL. Do you feel a little left out when the topic comes up around the water cooler at work? Would you like to know more about them and why they’re so wildly popular? What are the benefits?  Who is it best  on?  What are the realistic expectations of each treatment? Can we really get these results? Last month we focused a little on ipl for you, this month we’ll look at Microdermabrasion. What is Microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that stimulates faster cell turn over and new collagen. It regenerates, revitalises, refreshes and radiates your skin for a younger looking you and perfect for Men and Women of all ages. At Shine we have an Advanced Diamond Tipped Microdermabrasion Machine so there are no messy crystals involved, and is also better for sensitive skin. The treatment works by a Diamond Head which removes the surface older layer of skin and has a suction head to remove the dead cells as they are lifted.  The results you receive from a microdermabrasion treatment are more impressive than anything you could ever do at home. Best results are carried out in a course of 6 treatments roughly 2 weeks apart. These are also known as the ‘lunchtime peel’ as they normally take 30minutes to carry out and leave you looking and feeling vibrant and fresh. An important thing to remember after this treatment, is that although the dead skin cells have been removed which is fantastic, some of your protection has been removed so sunscreen after treatments and stay out of the sun for a few days post microdermabrasion. The treatment is not suitable for anyone with sunburn, or who have had Dysport, Botox or Fillers of any sort for 72hours prior to treatment. The normal price per treatment is $110, however this month we are offering them for only $85. Book in for a skin consultation with Charlotte to discuss benefits, desired results, how many treatments are required and how much improvement you can expect to see with each treatment.


Shine Beauty Therapy - Forrest Hill North Shore / Blog / Microdermabrasion – What you need to know


Absolutely one of the best salons ever. Everytime I've been, I've always had such great service and always come out feeling great! The ipl sessions I've had with Cheryl have worked so well and I am so pleased with the results! Still going with them but they are going great. Have had a few peals and they have worked so well for my skin! Have seen great results from this as well! 100% recommend Cheryl and the salon to all!
