When I think about Microdermabrasion I think of scary chemical peels and abrasive exfoliation so although I know how good it can be for your skin I’ve never done it. But since my skin has been horrendous of late (dull, dry, uneven… a general mess!) I read up on the non-invasive CACI procedure a friend of mine has recently done and then booked myself into a local salon (Beauty Rehab, N10)
The procedure includes:
- Microdermabrasion – known as orbital exfoliation removes the dead outermost surface of the skin which encourages the skin’s own renewal and production of collagen
- Light Therapy – a blue light is used to destroy the bacteria that can cause acne inflammations
- Wrinkle Comb – a red light is used to plump out wrinkles. Can be slightly uncomfortable as it feels like a sharp pricking but the more intense the current the better results. (I recommend to grin and bear it!)
- Hydratone – micro-current used over a cooling sylicone gel mask helping to intensively soften skin, plump out and smooth deep lines and wrinkles and restore tone and firmness
I had it done a few days ago and the results were amazing! Although this procedure is recommended periodically (every month or more frequently if you can afford it!) the results after the first session are dramatic. My skin is smoother, glowing, so soft and my laughter and brow lines although not that prominent are pretty much at the moment non existent! The full treatment can cost around £60-£70 which is a lot but if you pay for regular facials I’d recommend replacing it with this one.
