Microdermabrasion – Putting Your Best Face Forward

We all are in the pursuit of perfect skin.  And our facial skin care regime is quite important to regularly maintain, in order to have smooth, blemish free and healthy glowing skin.  Our face is how we portray ourselves to the world; we want and need to put our best face forward. Yet at any time, any of us can suffer any number of common skin problems such as acne, which come from stress, bad eating habits or even genetics.  What are we to do?

Welcome to the world of Microdermabrasion

For those of you who are new to this treatment, a little background information needs to be explained. The ideal clients would have the following needs:

  • To help treat scarring left behind acne
  • Reduce pores which are enlarged or eliminate them altogether.
  • Reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Eliminate black heads
  • Help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • Clear up patches of dark skin or hyper-pigmentation

If you are like most people and your days are busy and hectic, you do not have time for an intensive procedure. Microdermabrasion could be the answer to your problems. If any of the issues on the aforementioned list describes your current skin situation, then this could be the solution to your facial worries. Your pursuit for beautiful skin is within reach.

Serenity Beauty Clinic can provide the cure you need

Serenity Beauty Clinic specializes in providing a calm and serene environment for all the services provided, and Microdermabrasion is no exception. From the minute you enter the clinic you will be made to feel at ease. The technicians are highly trained not only in the skills needed for your facial care needs, but they are also able to help you feel comfortable and at ease.

What are the steps of the procedure?

Your best experience will occur if you feel as informed as possible before you enter Serenity Beauty Clinic.

The first and most important step is for you to explain which areas of your skin you wish to have treated. This will take place in the consultation stage of your treatment, you will have two methods of Microdermabrasion from which to choose.

  1. This involves a hand-held device that streams tiny crystals across your skin. An attached vacuum simultaneously suctions those exfoliating crystals back into the machine. This is the first step in your procedure, after the skin has been has been appropriately prepared. After the microdermabrasion has been applied, a follow on Eve Taylor facial will continue with soothing mask, serum and moisturizer with an SPF.
  2. This a maintenance procedure which will specifically target those problem areas, and therefore can reduce treatment time This can only take place after you have had a full microdermabrasion procedure for the first time.

No matter which method you select, Microdermabrasion will only take 30 to 60 minutes out of your busy schedule. Once completed, you may feel a simple and mild scratching sensation. And this is a good sign because it means that the superficial, blemish filled skin cells are being removed from your face. Depending on your level of sensitivity, your reaction regarding the level of comfort or discomfort can vary.

The Results

What is to be gained after completion of this treatment?  Well simply put, a brand new you!  Your skin will become smooth and polished. Depending on the number and depth of your scars and for optimum results, it recommended you have one treatment once every 7- 10 days for 6 weeks  Some clients like to have a monthly maintenance appointment after that, the choice is yours.

How well does it really work?

The way to have smooth, blemish-free skin is to have skin which is elastic and has density. Both of these can only be achieved with skin cell renewal. Well this is exactly what a Microdermabrasion procedure provides. The secret lies in the vacuum function of the hand held device or wand which clears out all deep seeded dirt and/or hardened oil. This is the ultimate exfoliation procedure of a facial. The result is a clearer, more even skin tone and texture.

What are the reviews on this procedure?

According to, Microdermabrasion has been shown to work, and is an upgrade to traditional methods of dermabrasion that can take the skin months to heal from. With the micro upgrade you generally don’t feel much pain, and there is less likelihood of taking so long for your skin to heal. You may have to go back for more treatments than you would with dermabrasion, but trade off seems like a good idea in most cases. Many of us don’t have months to spend in isolation while the redness on our face goes away. Our Recommendation – This is a viable option for many people, and a way to get some pretty quick results. If you go with creams and lotions you are basically working on this outer layer, and can never get to the fresh skin underneath, no matter how much you exfoliate.

What do you need to do after the treatment to recover and maintain the results?

Happily, there is no recovery needed for microdermabrasion. It is a simple in and out procedure, you go home right away. It is recommended that you use an SPF cream of 25 or higher daily, to protect the newly revealed skin from UVB and UVA rays. By not using it you may cause even more damage than you started with! Of course, following a regular skin care routine to maintain your new skin would also be highly beneficial to prolong the effects of the procedure.

So are you ready to book your appointment with Serenity Beauty Clinic? Anything else holding you back? Well it would be wise to mention another aspect that many savvy consumers consider, and that would be the cost.

What about cost?

Before the invention of Microdermabrasion, many clients were having another procedure done called Dermabrasion, this treatment is carried out in a Dermatologists office. When comparing the two treatments Microdermabrasion wins, for more reasons than simply concerns about cost.  A very important consideration for any facial treatment is the level of pain one will experience. When undergoing Dermabrasion, a general anesthesia was required, thus the pain level was much higher. Secondly the cost for Microdermabrasion is much more friendly to your budget. Microdermabrasion is considerably more affordable and accessible. Since the cost of microdermabrasion treatments in beauty centers is inexpensive, even if you elect to have multiple sessions to achieve the results you want, it is economical.

Patch Testing and the Importance

Patch Testing Is Important

Many salons will tint client’s eye brows and lashes before carrying out a patch test prior to treatment, as it saves time for the client but also the therapist. However it is extremely important to have a patch test and a consultation done before any tinting treatment. This allows the therapist to select the type of tint to use and to make sure the client is not allergic to any of the tints ingredients and clients shows no sign of reaction to the tint.

At Serenity we have a high standard of salon procedures and requirements to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our clients, which is why patching testing is a must have her at the salon.

We encourage clients to come for a patch test at least 48 hours before the first tinting treatment and clients will only need to be patched tested once which, only takes five minutes to complete. The tint can be placed either on the inside of the clients elbow or the back of the ear and a consultation form will be filled out, dated and signed.

If there is no reaction within 48 hours, tinting treatment can be carried out when clients desire.

Waxing Wax Treatment Therapy Derry Header

Waxing the Honey wax way

Honey wax is the most natural and organic of ingredients to use for the removal of unwanted body hair. This wax is made purely by bees honey that is heated to the appropriate temperature for your waxing treatment. Some of the honey wax used at serenity will include essential oils for skin nourishment and/or to assistant in many different skin types. Although this wax is safe to use on all skin types some areas maybe more sensitive than others and with the use of essential oil will play a big part in helping these areas to become less irritated and painful. For example, lavender oil or camomile oil are well knowing for their soothing properties and can be added to the oil for clients with highly sensitive skin.

Honey has been used in many beauty treatments for centuries because of its great health benefits and even Egyptian woman used a sticky emulsion made of oil and honey, similar to what we now call “sugaring” to remove hair from their body.

In 1520, Bassano de Zra wrote: “The Turks consider it sinful when a woman lets the hair on her private parts grow. As soon as a woman feels the hair is growing, she hurries to the public bath to have it removed or remove it herself again with the use of heated honey, sugar and essential oil.

This method of hair removal has been around for sometime and is the most natural way of doing so. At serenity we are devoted to using only natural ingredients in all our products.

Waxing is semi-permanent hair removal where the hair is is removed from its root. A thin layer of wax is applied on the desired area and removed with a wax strip. Once the hair is removed new hair will grow back within six weeks. Almost any part of the body can be waxed including eyebrows, lip, chin, neck, underarms, pubic area and legs. Please see the treatment list for more information and waxing packages.
