Microdermabrasion


Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment that gently exfoliates (lifts off) the uppermost layer of dead skin cells and dull surface layers. It smooths the skin surface, improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage and gives the skin a healthy smooth glow. It can also remove surface pigmentation and enhance the penetration and effectiveness of Skin Repair creams.


How does Microdermabrasion work?

We simply get you to lie down in a comfortable position on a treatment couch. After cleaning and drying your skin, gentle yet powerful suction is applied to your skin via a sterile probe. This exfoliates dead cells from the skin surface, opens up the pores and suctions out the oily sebum and debris from your skin pores.

Because the treatment is only limited to the epidermis – the very top layer of dead skin, there is no risk of scarring and you can return to work immediately afterwards. The cleansing action unplugs the pores and safely exfoliates the skin without causing harm to surrounding tissues.

A windblown appearance is all that is visible after a treatment, which settles in a day or less. This can be covered with make-up. There is no discomfort after the treatment.


Downtime

Microdermabrasion involves little or no downtime and you can return to work straight afterwards.


How Many Treatments will I need?

Your doctor will advise you the most appropriate and cost effective number of treatments needed for your skin. This will generally be between 3 and 6 treatments, spaced one to two weeks apart.


Your Assessment

It is important you consult a Cosmetic Physician or dermatologist. An individual assessment of your skin type and the extent of photodamage is made. Depending on your goals, a treatment program can then be tailored for you. This will include selecting the correct treatments, all necessary aftercare, and advice on maintaining your improvement.

Micro-dermabrasion exfoliates dead cells from the skin surface, unplugs the pores and increases the efficiency of Skin Rejuvenation creams.
