Microdermabrasion is a painless cosmetic treatment that is an alternative to chemical peels and dermabrasion. Also known as “Crystal Peeling“, this procedure blasts sterile Corundum Crystals onto the skin surface, so as to exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin.
With little downtime, this quick procedure is suitable for lunch hour beauty therapy.
This procedure enables the dead cells to be abraded and then whisked away by vacuum suction. New skin growth is subsequently stimulated, leaving your skin smoother, brighter, firmer and with a course of treatments, blemish free.
This treatment is particularly recommended for people with thick oily, congested skin. After the treatment, the complexion will have more of a glow. For those with soft acne scars, multiple sessions will reduce the depth of scarring, producing a more even complexion.
We use the Clairderm microdermabrasion system from Australia. This unit has the added function of lymphatic drainage, which is routinely performed prior to the microdermabrasion. Lymphatic drainage helps to clear the toxins accumulated in the tissues.
The microdermabrasion process was developed 15 years ago. It has since been fully researched and tested by the European medical profession and is now being administered in full safety in the comfort of progressive medical and cosmetic practices.
Depending on the skin problems to be treated, the level of exfoliation can be adjusted so that the treatment is pleasant or tolerable. A slight redness will fade within one to twenty four hours depending on the strength of the treatment.
- Gentle exfoliation for tired dull skin
- Congested skin with open pores and comedones
- Superficial pigmentation
- Stretch marks
- Sun damaged skin
- Acne Scar blending and improvement
- Ageing hands
- Skin blemishes from ingrown hair
- Blackheads, unclear complexion
We find the treatment particularly useful in assisting in the removal of blackheads and comedones, particularly in the nose area. If your nose is studded with black spots, microdermabrasion will remove any overgrowing skin that can make these unsightly spots difficult to squeeze out.
Coupled with a purifying facial treatment, this is a comfortable way of improving the appearance of problematic young skin.
Special added benefits
- Immediate visible results
- Brilliance and tonicity to a dull and stressed looking skin
- Increases micro circulation bringing nutrients to the skin
- Improves the appearance of imperfections
- Increases the penetration of serums and creams by 4 to 5 times
Benefits will be visible after one treatment, however the program will be based on your skin conditions and goals that you want to achieve.
The microdermabrasion technique is not an instant fix for skin problems. It is a gradual removal process of dead skin and imperfections with the promotion of healthy new skin.
Once you have attained your goal, monthly maintenance is recommended.
Even if you have no major concerns, you can still benefit from the procedure. Your skin will be brighter, firmer, clearer and healthier.
