Microdermabrasion

What is Microdermabrasion?

 

The procedure uses a special diamond encrusted tip applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it. Your therapist will carefully select the coarseness of the tip specific to your treatment.

What does it do?

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions. 

Diamond Tip Wand

A diamond-tip handpiece is designed to gently exfoliate dead cells in your skin. At the same time, it will suction them off immediately. 

The depth of the abrasion may be affected by the pressure applied on the handpiece as well as how long the suction is allowed to remain on the skin.

Are there any side effects?

Common side effects of microdermabrasion include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. These generally go away within a few hours after treatment. 

You might be advised to use a moisturizer to minimize dry and flaky skin. Minor bruising may also occur. This is mostly caused by the suction process during the treatment.

What to expect after a treatment?

There is little to no downtime after microdermabrasion, 

Keep your skin hydrated and use gentle skin care products. Avoid using topical acne medications for at least one day after treatment. It’s extremely important to protect your skin with sunscreen. Your skin can be more sensitive to the sun in the few weeks after the treatment.

You can expect to see noticeable results immediately after the procedure. The number of microdermabrasion sessions needed will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations.

How often can you be treated with microdermabrasion?

Skin regenerates itself every 30 days. This means that the effects of microdermabrasionare temporary and the treatments generally need to be repeated every two to four weeks. On average, it takes between six to twelve sessions for a person to see drastic results from microdermabrasion.
