Microdermabrasion offers excellent results if you would like to achieve a fresh and youthful glow to your skin and has become increasingly popular non-invasive treatment. Results are instant and although you will see an improvement within one session, a course of treatments is strongly recommended for optimum results, especially in removing acne scars.
Your skin is made up of two main layers; the epidermis (outer most layer) and dermis (underneath the epidermis). The epidermis consists of dead skin cells on the outside which are visible to all of us as skin as well as maturing skin cells which lay underneath.
Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells to reveal the maturing skin cells.
A microdermabrasion facial consists of a deep cleanse, after which dead skin cells are broken up using tiny crystals through the handpiece of a treatment specific machine. These dead skin cells are also removed by the machine after which a mask is applied for your specific skin type leaving fresh, living cells to surface giving you soft, glowing skin. Finally, as moisture is temporarily removed from the skin as a result of the procedure, a moisturiser is applied.
Side Effects & Optimum Results
The process causes no pain or discomfort and the only possible side effect may be temporary redness of the skin which would shortly disappear.
If you are looking to improve scarring due to acne, a microdermabrasion facial should ideally be undertaken in a course of weekly treatments
