What is it?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical way to eliminate skin blemishes and leave it feeling soft and fresh. By mixing gentle abrasion with suction to peel off a thin outer layer of skin, microdermabrasion reduces the appearance of age spots, fine lines, and acne scars. Forever Young's microdermabrasion uses the Power Peel treatment, a safe, effective and relatively painless alternative to chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
The treatment is a course of weekly sessions, of usually no more than 30 minutes each time. Micro-crystals are vacuumed through a small handpiece which acts to 'polish' the skin surface. Dead and flaking skin cells are removed, allowing new skin cells and collagen to grow in their place.
Is microdermabrasion right for me?
If you are unable to take the time off for healing from chemical or laser treatment or you're an active type who doesn't want to interfere with social or recreational activities, microdermabrasion is the ideal treatment.
It is also excellent for those with sensitive skin who experience reactions to make-up and chemicals, or who are young with early skin changes and want to make improvements early. The treatment is effective on all skin types.
