Top 2 treatments for surface skin rejuvenation

The top layers of your skin suffer a lot of damage over time, especially from the harmful effects of the sun, pollutants, harsh cosmetics and other negative influences. Treating this damage can achieve drastic improvements for your overall appearance, revealing skin that looks smoother, tighter and more youthful, with fewer lines, wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.

Two of the most popular treatments for surface skin rejuvenation are medi-aesthetic peels and microdermabrasion. These are safe, non-invasive, inexpensive and amazingly effective approaches to removing dead and damaged skin cells to heal your skin and restore your natural beauty.

Medi-aesthetic peels

Medi-aesthetic peels improve the skin's upper layers by inducing a healing effect as damaged layers of skin are replaced by healthy ones. A selection of chemicals are used to target different skin concerns including pigmentation, acne and skin ageing. This helps to refine, resurface, restore or rejuvenate your skin.

The treatment is ideal for:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Ingrown hairs
  • Blotchy pigmentation
  • Skin spots
  • Sallow complexion
  • Dry skin

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is one of the most affordable and effective non-surgical treatments available in skin rejuvenation. The treatment involves the application of tiny, rough crystals to rub away the upper layers of dead skin cells. The cells are then gently removed by a suction device attached to the same crystal depositing head. There is no pain or discomfort during the procedure. The combination of abrasion and suction allows the skin’s healing process to commence and bring back newer skin cells which look and feel smoother.

The treatment is ideal for:

  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Clogged pores
  • Skin texture problems
  • Minor scars
  • Rosacea
  • Acne

Medi-aesthetic peels and microdermabrasion treatments are ideal skin pick-me-ups and perfectly complement other aesthetic procedures to enhance results. They are ideal "lunchtime" procedures because they are affordable and quick with minimal downtime, and can be included in your regular skincare regime to help maintain healthy, youthful skin.
