What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a revolutionary skin resurfacing technique that can benefit people of all ages. It helps eradicate and reduce fine lines, scarring, acne potholes, and sun damage.
You can see the results after the very first session as the skin looks smoother and the collagen producing cells in the dermis are stimulated, making the skin fuller and more elastic.
How is it different to a chemical peel?
This treatment is superior to chemical peels because chemical peels only strip off the top stratum corneum of the skin (layer) and they still leave the skin uneven.
Microdermabrasion blasts the skin with miniscule stone crystals which planes and smooths the skin down to an even surface.
At the same time, it is stimulating new blood flow in the dermis, encouraging lymphatic drainage and collagen and elastin production.
There are no chemicals involved with this process as it is purely mechanical, therefore making it suitable for all skin types.
We chose the microdermabrasion process to use in the clinic because it is a more natural way of tricking the skin into producing new skin growth, giving your face a younger, fuller, smoother, firmer look.
Can microdermabrasion be used on other parts of the body?
Yes, it can also be carried out the hands or chest to reduce sun spots and aged wrinkling.
Again, with these parts of the body, initial treatment needs to be followed up by maintenance.
Can I combine it with other procedures?
More mature clients can benefit from having microdermabrasion carried out alongside the non surgical facelift so that the results can be doubly as rewarding.
According to the skin type, we may recommend anything from 6 to 12 sessions with a possible monthly maintenance program to allow you to look your very best.
