What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion – or particle skin resurfacing – is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses a highly controlled spray of fine aluminium oxide crystals to remove the outer layer of skin and reveal underlying younger, tighter and more radiant skin.
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion abrades the skin using a high-pressure flow of crystals. This is an effective treatment for fine wrinkles, enlarged pores, ageing changes and superficial scars, but with minimum personal risk and a rapid recovery.
Microdermabrasion results in thicker and healthier skin. Multiple treatments are beneficial as they encourage the production of higher levels of collagen and elastin which are essential for healthy glowing skin. The procedure further improves your complexion and the overall appearance of your skin.
A series of 5-12 treatments are required to achieve optimal results. The treatment can be significantly longer in cases of acne scars. Initial treatments are scheduled weekly or biweekly followed by monthly to biannual treatments for maintenance. This technique should not be considered if you are experiencing active herpes infection, malignant skin tumours and certain keratoses or during use of Accutane (isoretinoin).
