Microdermabrasion and serum infusion
Medical Microdermabrasion (MDA) uses high-precision diamond heads to get rid of dead or redundant cell tissue.
It is a mechanical sort of skin exfoliation employing a stream of abrasive diamond-shaped crystals combined with suction. It exfoliates the upper layers of skin and stimulates collagen growth within the lower layers. The intensity is often varied to suit an individual’s skin concerns, from a lightweight exfoliation to deep resurfacing. MDA treats Ageing and sun damage, Acne and congestion; enlarged/congested pores, Rough, thickened, dull/lifeless skin, Scarring, Fine lines, and maintaining overall skin health and rejuvenation.
