Microdermabrasion is a machine delivered exfoliation. It targets the dead skin cells of the outer layer of skin, the Stratum Corneum. Diamond heads are moved across the surface of the skin to break up the dead skin cells and then a vacuum mechanism clears away the exfoliated skin. With the outer skin barrier removed moisture and the active ingredients in skin products can penetrate the deeper layers of skin. The results; smoother, softer, younger looking skin.
Great for rejuvenation of sun damaged skin, age spots, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, opening and clearing clogged pores and assisting the repair of acne scarring. A more radiant result can be achieved by combining chemical peels or IPL. The light of the IPL works on rejuvenating and removing pigment and the microdermabrasion removes the dead outer layers so continual cell renewal is occurring.
An experienced clinician should give you detailed information about before and after treatment care.
The following steps are how a typical micro-dermabrasion treatment is delivered in our student clinic.
· The face is cleansed using a cleanser tailored to your skin type
· Micro-dermabrasion is performed over the face and décolletage if needed.
· A cooling mask is applied followed by an intensive moisturiser.
Your skin might be a little dry following a treatment, make sure you have a great hydrating mist and a moisturiser suited to your skin type to keep your skin hydrated as it heals and regenerates. We love YUVA and ASAP products, which can be purchased from our reception. Don’t forget to apply a 30+ SPF daily to protect your new fresh skin cells. Your skin will feel softer and after several successive treatments most people find they can visibly see and feel the change in their skin.
