What does Microdermabrasion do?
As we age, fibroblast or cellular activity decreases and our skin’s strength and elasticity can wane. This can facilitate the appearance of lines and wrinkles as blood flow decreases, and the production of new skin cells drops dramatically.
Microdermabrasion can improve skin rejuvenation for:
- Active Acne
- Ageing and Sun Damage
- Acne Scars
- Pigmentation Marks (suitable for Asian skin)
- Stretch Marks
- Fine Lip and Character Lines
- Enlarged Pores
How does Microdermabrasion work?
Microdermabrasion employs a modern mechanical exfoliation and gentle aspiration technique to resurface the skin. A diamond-tipped abrasive disk is gently guided over the skin, erasing the layers at varying depths in a controlled manner. This technique minimises skin trauma, while a gentle suction is used to remove any dislodged skin cells.
You can also combine Microdermabrasion with a Glycolic Peel (Microdermabrasion Deluxe) to produce even more dramatic results than a standard treatment. The 30% Glycolic Acid Peel is applied to your skin and is removed with the Microdermabrasion machine. The glycolic acid breaks down and loosens more dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, helping the Microdermabrasion to be even more effective. This deeper treatment is not recommended for people with sensitive skin but is targeted more toward people with active acne, enlarged pores and tired-looking skin.
What does Microdermabrasion feel like?
Microdermabrasion is a sanitary, painless, and risk-free procedure. The skin abrasion feels scratchy, and depending on the strength of the therapy, you may have minor redness and a ‘wind burnt’ sensation for up to 24 hours thereafter.
