What is Microdermabrasion?

Controlled MDA is a modern technique designed with the help of a gentle, mechanical peeling process, to improve the skin’s regenerative capabilities and to better control specific skin conditions. It has been used for over 20 years with great success by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and skin therapists for the treatment of skin imperfections such as scar tissue, pigmentation abnormalities, blemishes and acne, and more.

The aim of MDA is to restore the ideal balance between healthy well functioning cells needed for a radiant appearance and the comeocytes required for the protection of the skin from the environment.

Types of Treatment We Offer

We can treat a variety of skin conditions with Microderma-percussion, from general brightening and rejuvenation, enlarged pores, blemishes, acne scarring, pigmentation problems, stretch marks and scar reduction. We use CACI for all the above treatments at our salon and recommend IPL advanced light therapy with certain skin problems for maximal results.

We have chosen CACI CHROMACLEAR combining five treatment technologies within one state of the art system. Utilizing vacuum suction, colour therapy, light stimulation and vibratory massage with the latest form of skin peeling called microdermo-percussion. This uses perfectly rounded quartz silica crystals that do not scrape the skin unlike jagged aluminium crystals, but gently exfoliate by producing a tapping sensation as they are propelled onto the skin
