Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive treatment that uses crystals to gently exfoliates your skin.


If it’s your first appointment with us you’ll likely have a consultation to talk about your skin history and concerns. We offer free skincare consultations so that we can advise you on the right treatment for you. If you’re using exfoliating creams, AHA’s BHA’s, retinol or other prescriptions that sensitise the skin on your face you’ll be asked to stop use of these for at least a week prior to your appointment.
