MICRODERMABRASION

Exfoliation helps to maintain skin health.

WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that precisely buffs off the top layer of dead skin cells, leaving a brighter, healthy layer of new cells which will absorb skin care products more effectively, and look smoother and more lustrous with or without make up.

When you remove the stratum corneum, or the top layer of skin, the body interprets it as an injury. It then quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones. The entire procedure usually takes about 30 minutes for the face. The vacuum effect of the microdermabrasion machine not only whips away any debris, but stimulates the circulation to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the skin more effectivey.

IS MICRODERMABRASION SAFE?

Yes. In fact, many people choose microdermabrasion over chemical peels and laser treatment because it is generally safer and more cost-effective.

The procedure may be a little uncomfortable but shouldn’t hurt. However, your skin will be invigorated afterwards.Depending on how many treatments you have, you’ll notice a change in the clarity, elasticity and texture of your skin. Most dermatologists recommend around every four weeks. And the best results are usually seen by people in the early stages of ageing, between 35 and 50.

MICRODERMABRASION BENEFITS

People with uneven pigmentation, fine lines and clogged pores can benefit from a series of microdermabrasion treatments.

The procedure stimulates blood flow, which increases the nutrition delivered to skin cells. This improves cell production, which improves skin’s elasticity and texture. So, if you have scarring, it may help reduce the appearance of acne scars.

However, it’s not recommended if you have skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, active sunburn, herpes, lupus, open sores, psoriasis, fragile capillaries or widespread acne. This can irritate the skin and cause further breakouts.
