What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a popular, safe and gentle cosmetic procedure that mechanically exfoliates the skin. This technique uses a closed pressurized system, designed to improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, skin texture and colour by polishing the topmost layer and then vacuuming away the dead skin cells in a safe, controlled manner. As this treatment removes surface dead skin cells, the skin’s permeability is increased allowing better absorption of your skin care.

Who would benefit from Microdermabrasion?

Whilst offering an over-all more youthful look to the face and neck, microdermabrasion is particularly helpful as an adjunct to the medical treatment of specific skin complaints, these can include:

The procedure lasts around 60 minutes and a course of 6 monthly treatments is usually recommended for the most effective outcome.

What Are the Risks?

There are limited side effects to microdermabrasion; patients may experience some pinkness immediately after the procedure but this should subside within 24hours. The treatment removes some surface pigmentation, so can thereby reveal underlying  thread veins if you suffer from them, but by using the wand and vacuum suction best suited to your skin’s needs, even sensitive areas can be safely treated.

Relatively non-invasive and with no long recovery period needed, Microdermabrasion is often combined with other cosmetic facial procedures such as:

How Long Will the Results Last?

With appropriate post treatment care, the effects of microdermabrasion cannot wear out or be reversed; in fact the benefits of microdermabrasion continue to grow after the procedure. After treatment the skin is in better condition to absorb skin creams and serums, helping it to remain hydrated and glowing. The procedure also stimulates the epidermis beneath the skins surface to promote new collagen which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of ageing.
