medical microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses a mechanical exfoliation device to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter and younger-looking complexion. The treatment involves a qualified therapist using a handheld device to evenly and thoroughly buff away the surface layer of skin, leaving the skin refreshed and revitalised.

At Naomi Waite Aesthetics clinic, we use only the highest quality microdermabrasion machines, which are specially designed to be gentle yet effective. The treatment can be customized to suit your specific skin type and concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and scarring.

Microdermabrasion is a great option for those who want to improve the overall texture and appearance of their skin without undergoing more invasive treatments. It is suitable for all skin types and does not require any downtime, making it a perfect option for those with hectic lifestyles.

During your appointment, the therapist will thoroughly cleanse your skin before using the microdermabrasion device. This will ensure that your skin is prepped and ready for maximum results. The treatment itself is very comfortable, and most clients describe it as feeling like a gentle massage.

After the treatment, you may notice an immediate improvement in the texture and appearance of your skin. Results continue to improve over time as collagen and elastin production is stimulated. Most clients require a series of treatments to achieve optimal results, and our team will work with you to create a personalised treatment plan to achieve your goals.

Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective treatment that can help you achieve a brighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking complexion. Our team of qualified therapists at Naomi Waite Aesthetics clinic are here to help you achieve your skincare goals. Book a consultation today to find out more.
