Microdermabrasion and Hydrodermabrasion

Ever been curious about Microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion – and what exactly is the difference between the two? Hydrodermabrasion is a multi-faceted treatment that can do it all and as such is a highly sought-after and popular treatment, often recommended by treatment professionals. Think of it as the cooler, more grown up, evolved version of microdermabrasion.

Traditional microdermabrasion is the manual exfoliation with the use of fine crystals or a diamond tip to slough off the dead skin cells, revealing fresh and younger skin. The process is ideal for rejuvenating the skin by exfoliating and smoothing its surface, encouraging the renewal of skin cells and boosting collagen production.

On the other hand, Hydro dermabrasion takes Microdermabrasion to a whole new level. From the words hydro and dermabrasion, you might have already figured out that this treatment incorporates some hydration, and you are absolutely right. Treatments with Hydro dermabrasion machines go a step further by infusing skin with a cocktail of ingredients specifically tailored to an individual’s unique skin needs to hydrate, brighten and revitalise tired, dull-looking skin. Its does this at the same time as exfoliating the skin – making it the ultimate 2-one treatment and ideal for those short on time.

It is a similar process to microdermabraion but with the added benefit of improving circulation, hydrating the skin and infusing the skin with a specific cocktail of ingredients targeted toward your specific skin concern. Whether it be dehydration (hello winter!), pigmentation, congested skin or acne prone, your provider will determine the specific skincare infusion that is most appropriate. The addition of the hydrating fluid also makes it more compatible for those with dry and sensitive skin types than traditional microdermabrasion.

Post-treatment, expect immediate results: a brighter, smoother complexion with minimized pores and improved skin texture. Suitable for nearly all skin types, these treatments boost cellular turnover, help promote collagen production and enhance circulation, resulting in radiant skin. Be warned…the results are accumulative and extremely addictive – be prepared to expect glowing skin and lots of compliments.

As you continue to incorporate regular hydrodermabrasion treatments into your regular beauty regime, expect to see the following results:

  • Revitalised, plump and nourished skin
  • Less visible lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced pore size and iprovement in acne scars
  • Increased hydration levels
  • Improvement in discoloration, sun damage and skin pigmentation


LED Light Therapyword

For ultimate convenience, LED facials offer quick and effective skin rejuvenation. Again, this is a multi-facteted treatment – designed to tackle multiple concerns at once. Depending on what your unique skin needs are – the various coloured lights all target different common skin concerns.

The light from LED machines light penetrates skin cells to soothe, restore and rejuvenate. Each light color serves a specific purpose: blue light targets acne-causing bacteria and prevents breakouts, red light reduces fine lines and wrinkles while boosting elasticity and increasing collagen production, green light fades discoloration and helps with redness and yellow light evens out skin tone.
