After recently undergoing extensive surgery in my mouth and on my neck, the skin on the left-hand side of my face broke out in what can only be described as an outbreak of adult acne. After allowing it to clear naturally I was left with scarring on the side of my jaw from several of the spots.
A friend suggested I should consider Microdermabrasion as a treatment for the remaining scars, along with a general refresh for my skin. Having never had a facial, let alone any more involved treatments, I was not only skeptical, but also worried about the pain, side effects and cost of a treatment like this.
Fast forward to three Microdermabrasions later from The DentalSPA, and I need not have been worried at all. The 40-minute, painless process is a combination of cleaning and clearing excess dirt from your skin, plumping the clean skin and stimulating blood, followed by the use of a small hand piece that emits micro crystals onto the surface of the skin, resulting in the gentle abrasion, polishing and removing of dead skin cells.
The painless process has left my skin visibly clearer after the initial treatment, with the majority of acne scars completely gone after the third treatment. My skin is brighter and has a far more even complexion in areas where sun spots were previously noticeable.
A lovely bonus is that The DentalSPA offer a relaxing foot or hand massage while you’re undergoing the treatment. (A very welcome surprise!)
When you should consider microdermabrasion:
- If you would like brighter, clearer skin with a healthy glow.
- If you have acne scars, minimal sun damage and fine wrinkles.
- If your pores are clogged or you often suffer from blackheads.
- For maintenance of healthy and clear skin.
Microdermabrasion is great as there’s no downtime from the treatment, it’s cost effective and works for most skin types and colours.
Microdermabrasion from The DentalSPA is AED 350 per session and / or AED 800 for three (3) consecutive treatments.
