Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation process of the skin to diminish fine facial lines and wrinkles and to refine skin texture. Repeated treatments yield excellent results in effacing mild acne scarring. Microdermabrasion removes the outermost layer of sun-damaged dry, dead skin cells to reveal clearer and healthier skin beneath. It is an affordable option and safe for all skin types that will leave you with a fresher and younger-looking face.
What results can I expect, and how soon?
Depending on the area treated, you will notice an improvement in your skin’s appearance. Acne scars will be less obvious. Fine lines are diminished and skin texture will be softer, smoother and younger-looking. Improvement continues throughout the treatment program. In as few as four to six treatments, your skin will look brighter, clearer and more evenly toned. Over time, this repeated process stimulates the growth of a new layer of skin cells, also increasing the natural level of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance.
How often should I be treated?
You can schedule a Microdermabrasion every 10 to 14 days for up to 10 treatments. Microdermabrasion is recommended every four to six months after the initial 10 treatments to maintain optimal results.
How long will it last?
The effects of Microdermabrasion Exfoliation are permanent. By gently and precisely exfoliating the surface of your skin over a course of fortnightly sessions, Microdermabrasion Exfoliation takes away years of build-up, revealing clearer, smoother and softer skin.
What is the treatment like?
Treatment is performed with special equipment held at a precise angle to the skin. This polishes the skin and gently removes the damaged outermost layers to promote new skin growth. Microdermabrasion Exfoliation effectively removes invisible dead skin cells and promotes the production of natural collagen giving the skin a “plumper” more youthful appearance. In as little as 30-45 minutes, this gentle abrasive technique produces satisfying results.
What’s the recovery time?Unlike chemical peels or plastic surgery, there is no down time. At most, the skin may be pink for a day or two after the treatment, during which time sunscreen should be applied before venturing outdoors.
