Alex Massage and Beauty vouchers for deals on Microdermabrasion Facial and massage in Dublin City. What is a microdermabrasion and ultrasound facial ? An advanced exfoliating technique aims to gently remove the surface layer of dead skin cells while supplemented by low-level ultrasound waves. The treatment aims to reduce the appearance of fine lines, and generally encourage brighter complexions. Clients are advised to avoid the use of chemical creams, electrolysis, peeling cosmetics and waxing five days before the treatment. What does aftercare involve? People should wash their face using only cold or tepid water for the first day, and avoid lotions and products with harsh ingredients. Their skin may look slightly red but this will fade over the following couple of days. What is the alternative option? Clients can alternatively opt to unwind with a 30-minute mini facial treatment, paired with a 30-minute back massage to target muscular kinks and knots.
