Microdermabrasion

"I love this treatment, I always leave feeling relaxed and my skin refreshed. Looking forward to coming back on Saturday for a bit of pampering!"
Sara, October 2016

Microdermabrasion is a system of intense exfoliation and resurfacing, which uses ultra fine crystals and a vacuum suction to work as a gentle abrasive. They remove dead skin cells layer by layer to rejuvenate the skin. The crystal's irregular shape helps to work on hard to reach areas without causing damage to the skin.
The vacuum action of the machine stimulates the circulation and promotes increased blood flow to the area. The production of collagen and elastin is also stimulated, which results in a firmer, more youthful looking skin. 

Treatments are usually performed every seven to ten days.  

Please read the Facials Pre and Post Care before your treatment!

Microdermabrasion has a wide range of benefits. It is successfully used to help reduce the appearance of pigmentation, blemishes, acne and acne scarring, uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles, ageing skin, blackheads, dull, tired and dehydrated skin, the cellulite 'orange peel' effect, and stretch marks. It can leave your skin feeling fresh, plump and revitalised. 

You should see the results immediately, and with each subsequent treatment your skin will look progressively better. 

After the first treatment your skin may feel tight with mild redness. It is important to use a good moisturiser to combat this. These effects usually subside within one day of treatment. 

An LED Light Therapy add-on is available for just £10.00. This works particularly well in combination with Microdermabrasion. Please call the salon for further information. 

Microdermabrasion can be used for all skin types, on all areas of the face and body. 

This treatment is not suitable for the following conditions and may need a GP/Midwife note: pregnancy, severe active acne, psoriasis, diabetes, epilepsy, eczema, some antibiotics, contagious skin disorders, cancer and Roaccutane users. 

If we have never performed Microdermabrasion on you before or it has been longer than 3 months since you have had a Microdermabrasion Facial at The Retreat, you must book an appointment for a simple patch test.

Please contact the salon and read our Terms and Conditions for further information. 

To get the best out of your treatment, please read the below instructions carefully and follow them as strictly as possible to ensure your own health and safety.

We advise you avoid exposure to sun and excessive heat for two weeks prior to treatment, including the day of your appointment and for three days after. This includes the use of sunbeds, sunbathing, steam rooms, hot tubs, saunas and heavy workouts. This is to ensure your skin is not overly sensitised.

In some facials, the top layer of dead skin cells has been removed which can make your skin sensitive to light. SPF is your friend!

We are happy to advise you on the right skincare to use, however it is not going to be one that you can buy on the high street as it may be counterproductive to the treatment you have had. We will recommend what we use as this is what we are highly trained in, and feel that if we don’t give you the correct information you cannot make an informed decision on how to invest in your skin! But please remember that there is no pressure to buy! 

If, as part of your treatment, you have been given a treatment moisturiser and SPF please ensure that you use it. This isn’t just your therapist being nice (although they are lovely!), you’ve been given it because your skin needs the further protection and hydration after your facial. We are all about prolonging the benefits for you as best we can, but you will also need to play your part too. 

If you are taking medications that are to treat skin conditions or medications that will make your skin sensitive, please make sure to speak to your therapist before the treatment commences.

Please do not arrive to your appointment with wet or damp hair.

After your facial, it is recommended that you do not wear make up for a minimum of 12 hours. However, if you use a pure mineral brand, or would like us to apply a base application of Jane Iredale Mineral Make up, this would be fine.

Do not pick, scratch or aggressively rub the treated areas and try your best to avoid touching your face. 

Up your intake of water! Yes, we know it's not as tasty as coffee, tea etc but water will keep you hydrated and is actually great for improving your skin's complexion. You've just had a facial - reap the benefits!
