What is it?
Microdermabrasion, also referred to as mechanical exfoliation or micro resurfacing, is a method for facial rejuvenation that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation along with adjustable suction to sweep away the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. The procedure is non-invasive.
What results can you expect?
Microdermabrasion can be done to decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars, helping even out the texture of the skin. Removing the dead skin will aid in the penetration of the skin.
How many sessions are required?
You should notice some improvements straight away*, but we recommend a full course of 6 treatments (one session per week) for optimum results.
How does it work?
The exfoliation and suctioning disrupts the skin’s surface causing cell division. As the skin cells divide, fibroblast activity is stimulated leading to collagen production, which leads to thicker, firmer skin. Human skin sloughs off at a slower rate with age, so the exfoliation of several layers of the stratum corneum (surface skin layers) leaves skin fresh and radiant.
An estimate of 20 to 30 minutes.
Does it hurt?
The treatment is not painful; it may be slightly uncomfortable.
During and just after the procedure the skin may show a bit of redness, however this effect usually disappears very quickly. No special post-peel skin treatment is required, the skin easily recovers itself. Avoid applying make-up, mascara/extension lashes and hair dyeing, visiting pool, sauna and sun beds as well as playing active sports for at least 12 hours after the procedure.
