Is your skin looking dull, rough or flaky and you have lost your natural glow? If you have answered yes to any of the following then don’t panic because we have the solution for you…..MICRODERMABRASION!!


Remember the episode of “Sex in the City” when Samantha got her chemical peel ……scary!! Well don’t panic because that is a completely different treatment!

Micro-d treatments exfoliate the top layer of skin cells, it helps rid the signs of

  • Dull skin
  • Hyper pigmentation
  • Enlarged/clogged pores
  • Rough skin
  • Scars due to acne and blemishes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Flaking dry skin
  • Excessive oiliness

Micro-d can be used on both female/male and young/old it is suitable for everyone. Introducing a micro-d treatment into  your skin routine will not only be beneficial but will be the key product in helping you to achieve flawless makeup application and enhance your own natural glow!

When it comes to micro-d I would recommend that you either choose a salon treatment (Treatments Available in our Waterford Salon) and let the experts do their magic on you or go for a premium brand as this is one treatment that you don’t want to mess up!!!


  • Clinique turnaround instant facial – 5 minute facial that delivers radiance and smoothness that is associated with micro-d. an advanced cocktail of exfoliates promote surface cell turnover on multiple levels to instantly reveal skin that is fresher, more vibrant and even toned, oil free product and suitable for the most sensitive skins
  • Estee lauder idealist – dual action refinishing treatment, the ultra-gentle, all in one treatment gives you the instant, skin renewing benefits of both micro-d and 30% glycolic acid peel, one application and the radiant skin you want is revealed


If doing a home treatment try to do so at night as your skin is more open and sensitive to environmental aggressors, after the treatment always use an spf of at least spf15 and above. Ideally use  spf25-40. For extra protection.
