We are pleased to announce we are introducing Microdermabrasion to our treatment menu this month, in this blog we explore the benefits of microdermabrasion.

Basically Microdermabrasion is an intense exfoliation which removes the outer layer of dead skin cells within the stratum corneum (the top layer of our skin) thus leaves the skin softer, smoother, more radiant and stimulates collagen renewal. It also allows products to penetrate deeper in to the skin levels. Treatment takes between 30 and 50minutes depending on area being treated and is painfree and suitable for most skin types including sensitive but particular good for sun damaged, ageing, acne scaring or stretch marked skin.

There are two different types of microdermabrasion on the market crystal and diamond the main differences are crystal technology is a hand-held device that propels a high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals directly onto the stratum corneum. At the same time, the machine has a vacum that sucks away dead cells and used crystals. The diamond microdermabrasion, replaces the micro-crystal flow with a diamond tip wand. Smaller areas such as the eyes and mouth can be worked on more accurately and there is no risk of stray crystals causing damage or being swallowed. Both diamond and crystal microdermabrasion give the same results.

At Spa in the City we use the diamond technique. To launch this new treatment we are offering two selected dates were you can try the treatment with one of our skin care experts for less than half price...only £20.00. Dates available are Thursday 10th and Friday 11th November.
