Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, painless procedure that is used to maintain healthy looking skin, reduce fine lines, and produces smooth, even skin texture and colour. In conjunction with a natural skin care programme, microdermabrasion treatments can help diminish many skin imperfections and restore the glow and natural vitality of youthful skin. Microdermabrasion uses a fine jet of crystals to gently and painlessly exfoliate the skin for a healthier, softer looking appearance.
In addition to surface exfoliation, Microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the basal layer (deepest layer of the dermis), cleans the pores, and stimulates blood flow and collagen to further improve skin texture. Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light or dark skinned patients to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees, hands and back.
Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing method that can be performed as a lunch-hour procedure for instantly rejuvenated skin. After cleansing your treatment area, the skin care therapist will use a jet of sterile micro-crystals to gently exfoliate your skin. The skin care therapist will adjust the pressure for your skin type and move the microdermabrasion hand piece across the treatment area to deliver precise abrasion onto the skin's surface. The scale-like lifeless epidermal cells and crystals are then suctioned back into the same hand piece to reveal a fresh, invigorated skin surface. After your treatment the skin care therapist may choose to apply a light skin polishing agent or facial mask to optimize your results.
This simple, quick and convenient procedure has become very popular with patients showing the early signs of ageing, sun-exposure and other facial imperfections.
Because Microdermabrasion is so precise, the procedure is virtually pain free. Your skin may feel a little hot and appear little pink immediately following your treatment and some patients report a mild stinging sensation around the eyes. Patients typically experience some redness for about an hour after the procedure.
Microdermabrasion is a quick procedure that usually takes between 15-20 minutes, We recommend to start with one session every month. Most people should see dramatic improvements after just a few sessions.
