Brief Overview of Microdermabrasion

Whether you have acne, blackheads or rough skin, or just want a quick pick-me-up, brighter, smoother skin is waiting for you in just a few microdermabrasion treatments. Microdermabrasion is safe, quick, convenient and effective for all skin colours and types, from light to dark, dry to oily. It is particularly useful for individuals with dark skin who are unable to undergo a light based treatment. Microdermabrasion can treat leathery and dull skin, reduce acne scarring, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and smooth fine lines. This age-defying process can give a brighter, smoother appearance to any skin area in need of exfoliation such as the face, neck, hands and chest.

About Skin Concerns

The main cause of many skin concerns are stress, prolonged exposure to UV (ultraviolet radiation) and the aging process. The collagen found in our skin begins to break down and results in fine lines, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and much more. One day we wake up to find that our face no longer has that youthful, vibrant appearance it once had and products no longer live up to our anti-ageing expectations.

Skin Solution

Microdermabrasion is the second most popular treatment in the world. Microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the deepest layers of the dermis and stimulates the growth of collagen to further smooth and improve skin tone and appearance. The microdermabrasion uses three specially designed, state-of-the-art skin treatments to exfoliate the skin, much in the same way as a loofah sponge, although through a mechanical process. These systems include a vacuum system, a compressor and a patented hand piece with tubing interlink system. Generally you may require more than one treatment which is discussed during a complimentary consultation with a trained specialist.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

The benefits of microdermabrasion are crystal clear. They include:

  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Helps fight the signs of ageing
  • Restores a healthy, smooth texture
  • Immediate signs of reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • No downtime
  • Safe and effective
  • Effectively repairs and restores aging skin
  • Cleans enlarged and clogged pores, white heads and black heads
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Chemical free
  • What to expect of the treatment

The microdermabrasion treatment can take between 40-90 minutes, depending on the surface area being targeted. Protective eyewear is worn to guard the eyes as the system’s hand piece projects micro crystals onto the skin’s surface in what is a “sandblasting” type of technique. It then pulls the crystals back up into an adjoining waste canister along with any expunged skin cells. The sensation can be described as a powerful micro vacuum sucking up the skin’s surface layer. The microdermabrasion is followed with a masque and moisturiser. Most clients experience only minor flushing and do not use make-up the same day to allow the skin to breathe and regenerate. In most cases, a microdermabrasion is conducted as part of a facial.

Results after treatment

The microdermabrasion treatment results in youthful, smooth, healthy looking skin that is immediately visible. Acne scars will also become more defined with every treatment. Most clients initially require 4-6 treatments at weekly intervals. Maintenance treatments may also be undergone after the initial treatment course.
