The Busy Person’s Guide to Achieving Skin Perfection

Who would’ve thought that you could fit the deepest possible skin cleanse into a single lunch break?

Well, we did. And now we’re trying to spread the word.

Microdermabrasion is the deepest, most thorough clean you can give your skin. Resulting in an immediate, healthy glow, microdermabrasion is a professional skin treatment with zero downtime. And best of all? Treatment sessions take less than an hour.

How Long Does a Single Session Take?

If you only want a single session of microdermabrasion – whether it’s to get your skin looking its best before a special occasion, or simply to indulge in a bit of no-excuses-needed self-pampering – then you’ll be able to fit the treatment into a lunch break.

A single session of microdermabrasion can usually be completed within 35-40 minutes. With results that are immediately noticeable, it’s the perfect skincare treatment for those on-the-go.

One of the best things about microdermabrasion is that there is no downtime. The only common side effect is a slight, pink tinge to the skin that usually disappears in under 24 hours. Otherwise, as soon as you step outside the clinic, you’ll enjoy the benefits of smoother skin and a healthy, youthful glow.

Single Sessions vs. Course of Treatments

Even after a single 40 minute session, the benefits of microdermabrasion are noticeable. But the more you use microdermabrasion, the more benefits you’ll be able to enjoy.

Customers coming in for a single session of microdermabrasion usually do so for the healthy glow that is immediately visible as well as for the instant smooth skin feel. Your radiant glow will last for days after the session, and can be optimally maintained by cleansing twice daily and exfoliating at least once per week.

If you include microdermabrasion into your regular skincare routine, you’ll not only experience the immediate after-glow that a single session provides, but also a range of long-term benefits that will extend well into old age, helping you to defy the clock.

For ongoing recipients of microdermabrasion, some of the more lasting benefits include:

  • Profound anti-ageing effects;
  • Softening of lines and wrinkles;
  • Helping to smooth coarse skin;
  • Helps to rid skin of acne and acne scarring;
  • Minimises the appearance of pores;
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation (such as age spots);
  • Increases the effectiveness of other topical skin treatments;
  • Improves the appearance of dull, tired, stressed and sun-damaged skin.

How Often Can I Get Microdermabrasion?

Typically, the skin on your face regenerates every 30 days. This means that, if performed as a one-off treatment, the benefits of microdermabrasion are only temporary.

To make the most of its ongoing anti-ageing benefits, treatments should be repeated once every 2-4 weeks initially, gradually being drawn out to a monthly or bi-monthly basis.

If being used to treat specific skin conditions – such as acne scarring – anywhere between 6-12 treatments will be needed to see significant improvement in the skin.

The benefits of microdermabrasion are many and varied, and are visible immediately post-treatment. Even if you only have a single session performed, you can still enjoy visible skin improvement – but as with most skincare treatments, the more regularly you use it the more benefits you will see.
