About Medical Microdermabrasion
For years, skin problems such as acne, fine lines and sun damage have been treated with lasers and chemical peels. Now there is a modern safe and virtually painless alternative, Microdermabrasion.
With over a decade of success around the world, the microdermabrasion procedure has been used to treat millions of satisfied people.
The benefits of microdermabrasion include:
- Less pain or discomfort
- Minimal risk
- Suitable for all skin types
- No anaesthesia required
- No recovery time
Because the microdermabrasion procedure is performed under the supervision of a certified professional, patients can be confident they will be treated with the utmost care.
How It Works
DERMA GENESIS® Medical Microdermabrasion uses a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade crystals to remove the dead, outermost layer of skin. This skin exfoliation process reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients.
Microdermabrasion is commonly used to treat and diminish:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Sun Damaged Skin
- Acne Prone Skin
- Blackheads and Whiteheads
- Superficial Age Spots
- Oily Skin
- Dry or Patchy Skin
The procedure is performed by using a hand piece that the operator passes over the skin. This evenly removes the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin, as pictured above: At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the abrasion and the vacuum. This promotes new collagen which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of ageing.
The microdermabrasion procedure takes approximately thirty minutes, depending upon the skin condition, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome.
Many will notice improvements in the texture and appearance of their skin immediately after the first treatment but optimum results are obtained through a series of treatments, typically four to eight treatments, spaced seven to 14 days apart. Significant results should be seen in four to five weeks. The long-term benefits of multiple procedures can be remarkable.
The result is a glowing, smooth, even and bright complexion. It is equally an ideal treatment to help you look fantastic for a special occasion or, more seriously, to treat unsightly skin blemishes and acne scarring.
Side Effects After Treatment
Mild redness may occur for 30 mins to half a day after the Microdermabrasion procedure, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. There are no side-effects to this treatment and no recovery time is required.
Suitable For Everyone
Medical microdermabrasion is a safe, non-surgical resurfacing procedure performed by a certified professional. It is an ideal treatment for young or old, male or female and for all skin types. Although mainly used on the facial area it may also be performed on the chest, back, shoulders or other areas as required. Medical microdermabrasion is an effective skin rejuvenation procedure that requires no downtime, allowing patients to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. The procedure is extremely popular because it is painless yet effective with minimal redness, swelling or irritation.
