What Is MicroDermabrasion ?
How Does RF Procedure Work ?
Microdermabrasion is best described as plastic surgery without the plastic or the surgery.
Microdermabrasion facial treatment is a recommended solution for fine lines, superficial blemishes and marks, congested skin and mild pigmentary problems.
Microdermabrasion is a deeply effective treatment for renewing a fresh, young-looking glow to your skin.
It’s one of the simplest and least disruptive skin treatments to have and is ideal even for people with sensitive skin.
How Does It Feel ?
One of the benefits of Microdermabrasion is that it’s virtually pain free. You will feel a subtle suction as the vacuum is placed over the skin and perhaps a tingling sensation. Your skin may look slightly pink after the treatment but this will subside within a few hours.
The crystals used are hard enough to disrupt tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin, but small enough not to do any damage or cause discomfort or pain. With a microdermabrasion facial, no artificial or even natural substances are injected, plus it also works in harmony with your body.
Once the treatment has removed dead and tired cells, your body will work to replace them with fresh, healthier looking skin.
How Does it Work ?
The microdermabrasion technique uses microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin but small enough not to do any damage or cause pain. The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin's surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new cells creating a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin.
Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. To gain visible improvement we generally recommend a course of sessions because additional treatments cause an increase in circulation within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.
What To Expect Afterwards ?
You can resume your normal activities right away, and there are no special measure you need to take. The skin may appear a little flushed immediately after the treatment, however any redness will disappear within a few hours. You must avoid makeup for at least 24 hours.
Avoid sunbathing, saunas or extreme heat for 48 hours. For best results you must use a SPF as aftercare.
You will notice improvement in your overall complexion from your first treatment. Microdermabrasion helps to stimulate collagen and remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Your skin will look and feel smoother immediately after treatment, with results lasting for up to three months. For best results, a course of treatments is advised.
