Effects of the procedure will become more pronounced in the first 24 hours after treatment as your skin calms from the therapy and the renewed skin becomes more visible.
Frequently Asked Questions about Microdermabrasion
Why do we need Microdermabrasion?
Our skin has a natural skin cell renewal cycle of approximately 30 days. As the skin renews, dead skin cells can ‘build up’ and thicken the Stratum Corneum (the outer most layer of the skin). This causes your complexion to look dull and lifeless. Microdermabrasion can help skin concerns such as: fine lines, blackheads, acne, age/sunspots, enlarged pores, uneven and rough skin, pigmentation and sun-damaged skin just to name a few. It can also improve the appearance of acne scars. Stretch marks are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty) or weight gain (e.g. pregnancy or muscle building) or in some cases, severe pulling force on skin that overcomes the dermis’s elasticity. Stretch marks may also be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, muscle building etc
How does it work?
A fine stream of tiny particles from the applicator, combined with vacuum is glided over the skin. The light abrasion technique mechanically removes dead skin cells on the face, neck, back and shoulders although more attention is spent on your main areas of concern.
How does the treatment feel?
The treatment is not uncomfortable and only a slight tingling sensation is felt. It can be described as mild sandpaper rubbing on your skin. After treatment you will have a slightly flushed faced with a windburn feel.
How many treatments are necessary?
Several sessions spaced throughout the year are usually recommended for maximum effectiveness.
What are the immediate results?
The skin will feel softer, appear brighter and be more uniform in colour. In addition, a special lifting technique can be carried out to plump and firm the skin.
Are there any side effects?
It is not uncommon for the skin to be red for a couple of hours after treatment. Daily application of sun screen is required but otherwise you can return to normal activities.
