What is Hydrodermabrasion?
A no touch exfoliation using saline solution. A bit like a jet wash for the face. We pass the wand over the affected area spraying the solution under pressure to really get into the nooks and crannies and lumps and bumps of pitted or acnaic skin, Because the bacteria in acne can easily spread to unaffected parts of the skin the process is completely non touch to allow for maximum hygiene. We also carry out lymphatic drainage to carry away impurities that can make acne worse.
Full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at face to face consultation.
