Microdermabrasion

About The Procedure

Acne Treatment Microdermabrasion is a light cosmetic procedure that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. Most commonly, microdermabrasion uses two parts: an exfoliating material like crystals or diamond flakes and a machine based suction to gently lift up the skin during exfoliation. Microdermabrasion is a procedure to refine the quality of the skin. The procedure is painless and takes anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour after which the patient has a finer skin which is initially pink in appearance, however this can be covered up immediately with makeup and resolves within a few hours leaving a fresh appearance and better complexion. Microdermabrasion may be performed to help diminish the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, and photo-damage, as well as diminish fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and shallow acne scars. A further benefit of microdermabrasion is enhanced skin penetration by other skin creams and serums. The controlled skin exfoliation afforded by microdermabrasion will afford make-up and self-tanning products to go on much more smoothly.

Microdermabrasion Works as a Wrinkle, Photo Damage & Acne Treatment

Microdermabrasion is performed by 'blasting' small/micro crystal particles across the skin through a wand to exfoliate all the dead skin cells that build up in spite of normal skin care regimens. Results from microdermabrasion are best when the procedure is repeated four times in consecutive weeks. Results can also be enhanced by performing microdermabrasion in conjunction with some of the clinics gentle skin peels.
