What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a commonly performed non-invasive aesthetic treatment that gently exfoliates away the dull outer layers of your skin to reveal smoother and more refreshed skin.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is commonly known as the “lunchtime facial”, due to its convenience. Treatments are often done under 30 minutes, and are non-surgical and painless. You will be able to apply makeup and continue with your daily activities with no downtime.
Microdermabrasion is effective in:
- Removing rough skin to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion
- Improving skin texture and clearing uneven skin tone
- Clearing clogged pores
- Reducing the appearance of age spots, superficial pigmentation, and other skin blemishes
- Encouraging the growth of new skin cells, which contain higher levels of collagen and elastin
- Improving internal blood circulation
What is the microdermabrasion procedure like?
This non-chemical, non-invasive aesthetic procedure uses a diamond coated handpiece to gently buff away the outermost layer of dead skin cells, to reveal a smoother complexion. The microdermabrasion system also involves a vacuum to remove dead skin cells while improving blood circulation.
During the procedure, you will feel a gentle vacuum sensation on your skin, but this is painless and the majority of our patients report feeling very comfortable during the treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are very rare – negative side effects mainly occur when the microdermabrasion machine is improperly used. However, our team of skilled therapists have many years of experience and are well-equipped to perform microdermabrasion treatments.
