Our skin says a lot about our general health and wellbeing, as well as telling tales about our age. If we maintain a regular skincare routine, avoid too much UV light, eat well and drink plenty of water, our skin can benefit hugely. However, no matter how healthy our regime, the skin can show a variety of imperfections, such as congestion, spots and acne, fine lines and wrinkles, dryness and dehydration, a dull appearance and uneven texture. When we have done all that we can to keep our skin healthy but need a helping hand, The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel can offer a variety of non-surgical treatments to improve and maintain youthful and healthy-looking skin.
Medical Microdermabrasion is a highly-effective, device-led treatment which can treat a wide-range of skin concerns and is offered here at The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel. Using tiny crystals which gently exfoliate the skin and a gentle suction process, Microdermabrasion manually removes dead and dull skin cells as well as imperfections; revealing youthful and healthy skin and encouraging new cell turnover and improving oil regulation.
Medical Microdermabrasion is one of our most popular treatments as it offers results that can be seen immediately as well as improving over a course of treatments, with no downtime or need for anaesthetic. Performed by our highly-qualified practitioners in our private and discreet treatment rooms, Medical Microdermabrasion can breathe new life to your skin.
Medical Microdermabrasion can treat the following concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dry, dehydrated skin
- Congested, oily, acne prone skin
- Sun damage, hyper-pigmentation, age spots
- Stretch marks
- Milia (small white spots where Keratin is trapped beneath the skin)
- Uneven skin texture and tone
