Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatment using our medical-grade machine is a safe, gentle, painless and non-invasive treatment of intense skin exfoliation and skin resurfacing that smooths and rejuvenates the skin with zero downtime. It is ideal for cleaning, refining and refreshing tired skin which has become dull, lifeless and thickened thereby revealing a fresh, radiant and youthful complexion.

We can adjust the treatment to suit individual skin types, thickness and sensitivities as it removes the surface layer of dead and damaged skin cells, while stimulating healthy skin in the deeper layers of the skin and increasing the efficiency of your homecare serums and moisturiser.

Similar to having an individualised facial treatment, Microdermabrasion takes up to 30 minutes to deliver a soft, radiant and youthful skin complexion. This is an excellent way to refresh and prepare the skin to enhance the results of other complementary treatments like MicroCurrent, Dual Radio Frequency, IPL Photo Rejuvenation, LED Light Therapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen Facial and a lot more.

 

A wand featuring an exfoliating diamond tip is passed over the skin a number of times gently abrading the dead and damaged surface skin cells. At the same time, a vacuum suction within the wand assists with the removal of this debris and unclogs pores while stimulating lymphatic drainage. A special treatment mask is then applied to further assist with decongestion of the pores. This is followed by a corrective serum and an antioxidant booster that enhances the potency of the treatment and accelerates the healing process, followed by a moisturiser and sunscreen. This whole process stimulates the dermis (deeper layer of the skin) to produce fresh skin cells. Immediately after the treatment your skin will visibly look radiant, healthier, fresher, firmer and more youthful.

Microdermabrasion is suitable for people of all ages, as well as for women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, with the exception of those with immune system disorders and certain skin conditions. A professional skin consultation is always completed prior to any treatment to assess your eligibility for a Microdermabrasion. The strength of the treatment is tailored to suit your individual skin needs.

Microdermabrasion is not recommended for deep scarring, wrinkles, birth marks or tattoos, as we have other specific treatments that target these concerns. Microdermabrasion treatments are generally had on the face, as well as the neck and the décolletage, but it can also be used for reviving skin on the shoulders, back, arms and chest.

After the treatment you may experience a mild sunburn / wind burn sensation due to the dead cell removal and increased blood flow which usually disappears the next day. In the initial sessions, you may experience skin dryness and/or slight peeling or flaking of your skin a couple of days after your procedure. This is normal and reduces as your skin health improves. Avoid exfoliating your skin until 4 days after your treatment as this will leave your skin with a smoother and fresher complexion.

The skill of the operator and the quality of the equipment are the major factors in ensuring results are achieved in a safe manner. For this reason our professionally-trained skin clinician evaluates your skin and adjusts the strength of the treatment to achieve the best results, while ensuring your comfort at all times.

Immediately after the first treatment, the skin is smoother, clearer, softer, refined and healthier-looking with less prominent fine lines and wrinkles. The results will last for a few weeks until your skin naturally develops a new stratum corneum (horny layer of the epidermis). The vacuum suction brings blood to the surface of the skin thus creating a greater level of oxygenated blood in the dermis, which in turn increases intercellular activity and ‘kick starting’ skin rejuvenation. With continued use of recommended professional skincare products, this result will continue to improve.

The number of treatments depends upon your need for optimum results. To obtain the best, long-lasting and visible results, a series of treatments is usually required.

In your initial consultation, we will analyse your skin concerns and then recommend the best course of action.

Minimal to none. Microdermabrasion  is a safe, natural, pain-free and non-invasive treatment that does not compromise the integrity of the skin. With zero downtime, it is a perfect ‘lunch-time’ treatment for the busy person, allowing you to get straight back into your normal routine.

We do recommend an appropriate skincare routine to assist the skin regeneration process and to extend the longevity of your results:

  • Ensure the area is kept clean and lightly moisturised
  • Protect your fresh new delicate skin from the sun with a SPF30+ sunscreen
  • If possible, avoid wearing liquid makeup for 24 hrs unless it is mineral makeup
  • Never undertake any treatment on the skin unless advised by your clinician
  • Do not use sun beds or over expose treated areas to the sun during the treatment series
  • If the treated areas is other than the face or neck, wear loose clothing allowing the air to circulate
  • Avoid products containing AHA’s, BHA’s, and scrubs
  • Avoid skin actives other than repair serums for the first 24 hours after the treatment
  • Exfoliate your skin four days after the treatment

For longevity of results, we recommend a daily bespoke skincare routine of regular cleansing, active and effective recommended bespoke serums and moisturiser rich in hydration and antioxidants and non-negotiable broad spectrum sunscreen SPF30+. Mineral makeup can be applied immediately following the treatment, and will help conceal and heal the skin without blocking pores or affecting the treatment results.

The condition of the skin and individual lifestyle including diet, exercise and regular skincare routine play an important part in extending the longevity of results. Post-treatment homecare serums that help support and maintain in-clinic results are highly recommended, as well as keeping the body well hydrated with 1 – 2 litres of water daily.

On their own, all of our treatments deliver effective results. When combined in a complementary multi-treatment program (Super-Charged Combination Therapy), they work at different levels within your skin to deliver visibly superior, more effective, targeted and longer-lasting results.

To ensure the best results, you must follow the correct Pre and Post-Care instructions.
