Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that works by gently abrading the top layer of the skin with the help of micro aluminium oxide crystals or a diamond tipped wand, leaving a new, fresh layer underneath. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure which can be performed in beauty salons, spas, in medical or dermatological offices and at home.

Microdermabrasion stimulates the collagen and elastin production resulting in the skin looking brighter and feeling firmer and smoother.

Effects on the skin

Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibres in the skin and can be used to:

  • Improve skin texture and reduce open pores.
  • Improve fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improve a sun damaged skin.
  • Improve superficial hyper-pigmentation
  • Improve scar tissue, eg. Stretch marks, acne scarring
  • Improve an oily, congested skin.
  • Reduce milia and blackheads (comedones).
  • Improve blood circulation.
  • Stimulate cellular function creating a skin rejuvenating effect
  • Improve lymphatic circulation and drainage, increasing the elimination of waste and toxins which cause puffy skin.


High Frequency

This treatment uses a high frequency current that alternates up to 100,000 cycles per second.

High Frequency can be applied to the skin of the face or body to stimulate, disinfect and heal the skin.

There are two different methods of applying high frequency:

  • Direct high Frequency
  • Indirect high Frequency

Direct High Frequency:

Effects of direct high Frequency

  • Produces heat
  • Increases metabolism and promotes skin healing
  • Improves the condition of the skin
  • Increases circulation
  • Improves moisture balance of the skin
  • Closes pores
  • Antibacterial and germicidal effect due to ozone production: Sparking- When the electrode is held just above the surface of skin, the alternating current jumps between the gap and a spark is formed. The oxygen in the air becomes ionised and forms ozone which destroys bacteria and promotes healing.


Indirect High Frequency:

Effects of indirect high Frequency

  • Improves dry and dehydrated skin conditions
  • Stimulates circulation bringing oxygen and nutrients to cell tissues thus improving skin texture.
  • Revitalises tired skin, improving the appearance of fine lines.
  • Improves skin colour.
  • Relaxing and soothing.
  • Increases lymphatic drainage which aids the removal of waste and toxins.



The galvanic treatment works on the scientific principle that similar charges repel and opposites attract. Galvanic uses a current which flows in one direction only and has polarity. Two electrodes are required to complete the circuit; one electrode is negatively charged (-) and called the cathode, while the other is positively charged (+) and is called the anode.

There are two methods of galvanic application:

  • Desincrustation: Deep cleansing to remove the build-up of sebum.
  • Iontophoresis: The application of specially manufactured products (positively or negatively charged) which are repelled deep into skin.

The general effects of the galvanic treatment are:

  • Increases circulation
  • Relaxing – warmth is produced within the tissues.
  • Soothing


Micro- current

Micro- current uses a very low-intensity, interrupted direct current which is measured in micro-amps. The unit of electricity is so small it is barely felt by the client.

This is an electrical service which provides an immediate skin toning and firming effect. The basic principle of this treatment is to re-educate the facial contours.

Effects of micro-current

  • Temporary removal of fine lines and plumps wrinkles.
  • Improves texture and appearance of the skin.
  • Refines pores.
  • Increases blood circulation.
  • Increases lymphatic circulation and the removal of waste.
  • Stimulates renewal of collagen and elastin fibres.
  • Helps to eliminate dark circles and puffiness from under the eyes.


Vacuum Suction

This treatment works by mechanically stimulating the lymphatic system, increasing the flow of lymph towards the lymph node for drainage.

Benefits of the treatment

  • Relaxing
  • Stimulates lymphatic system – lymph fluid is moved to the nearest lymph mode. Lymphatic circulation is increased which assists with the removal of waste products. Puffiness will therefore be reduced as the treatment assists the removal of tissue fluid from the area.
  • Stimulates the circulatory system – fresh oxygen and nutrients are transported to the area. Vasodilation of the blood vessels results in erythema.
  • Improves the condition of the skin – cell metabolism is increased which improves the appearance of the skin.
  • Sebaceous glands are stimulated and secrete additional sebum.
  • Dead and dry skin cells are removed.
