Microdermabrasion is a fabulous method of exfoliating dead and thickened skin cells from the surface of your skin, revealing fresh, new cells. This gives you the appearance of younger, smoother looking skin. Microdermabrasion involves abrading the surface of the skin with ultra fine, diamond head piece

There are two immediate benefits;

  • A much smoother texture to your skin as dead skin cells and debris is removed (even from the first treatment); and
  • The stimulation of the dermis of your skin this way, promotes the production of the building blocks of your skin in collagen and elastin.

The result is healthy new skin. This exciting, instant skin revival system is ideal for the treatment of pigmentation, age spots, acne, acne scarring, dull congested and thickened skin, scar tissue, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is suitable for men & women of all ages

In principle microdermabrasion is similar to sand blasting. The diamond tip uses diamond grit encrusted heads which are swept over the skin. This resultant debris is simultaneously vacuumed from the skin. Microdermabrasion stimulates circulation and triggers collagen growth for long term benefits.

Treatment is gradual and progressive. Improvements are seen with each session.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion is a gentle skin rejuvenation procedure which removes dead skin to reveal the smoother, clearer skin underneath. Over a course of roughly 5 – 10 treatments (depending on desired results), the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis) is mechanically exfoliated and the dead skin is vacuumed away. Microdermabrasion works to improve the condition of the skin in two ways; firstly, it strips away the dull and dry outer layer of the skin and secondly it stimulates the body’s repair system, prompting it to produce new, healthy skin cells to replace those that were removed.

Will Microdermabrasion be beneficial for me?

Microdermabrasion is great for most skin types, including those with sensitive skin. However, it is not suitable for those with severe rosacea, cystic acne, eczema, or dermatitis.

Is Microdermabrasion risky?

When performed by a professional, microdermabrasion is extremely low-risk – it is non-invasive and causes very minimal irritation. The system used at Shanga incorporates a vacuum and crushed diamonds to sweep the dead skin cells away without causing any damage to the skin.

How many sessions will I require?

Although you will most likely see improvements after just one treatment, for the best results it is usually recommended to undertake 5-10 treatments depending on your skin issue and desired results.

Can microdermabrasion be used on acne?

Yes, microdermabrasion can be used to treat acne and acne scars, providing there are no open sores on the face. The treatment can unclog and shrink pores, resulting in a reduction in acne pustules, while also reducing the appearance of acne scars. In fact, microdermabrasion is one of the most commonly used cosmetic procedures for treating acne and acne scars.

Microdermabrasion is not recommended for those with severe or cystic acne.
