Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive method of rejuvenation that helps to restore smooth younger looking skin by removing the outermost dead skin cells. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars, wrinkles, sun damaged and uneven skin tone.
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
- Suitable for most skin types
- No anaesthesia required
- Less pain or discomfort
- Minimal risk
- 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.
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. As we age, the rate at which our skin regenerates slows, so removing the top layers speed up collagen production. 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. 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.
Even though Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and painless procedure, you may experience slight discomfort for a short time afterwards as the aluminium crystals are delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin’s surface to remove dead skin. However, the controls of the hand-held device and vacuum capacity are flexible, so you can opt for a less intense treatment if that’s your preference. Once you have completed your Microdermabrasion treatment, it is not unusual to experience some redness in the first 48-hours. Some patients may experience slight shedding depending on their skin type, which is a natural side effect and nothing to be concerned about. It is recommended that patients do avoid heat treatments, such as sun beds, hot baths, saunas, and strenuous exercise for 24-hours after having their treatment. We would also advise that extra precaution is taken with day to day sun exposure following microdermabrasion treatment as the skin is more vulnerable to the sun's natural rays.
The microdermabrasion procedure takes approximately thirty minutes, depending upon the skin condition, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome. Mild redness may occur for 30 minutes 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. 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 reduce fine lines and wrinkles (to help you look fantastic for that special occasion).
Frequency will depend on your desired results as well as the nurse’s recommendations, however it is generally recommended that 6 treatments are conducted, each being once a month.
As you’ve already heard, Microdermabrasion is used to improve a whole host of different skin conditions or, more generally, to enhance skin to be at its best. The biggest benefit we hear, however, is to our patient’s confidence. We know all too well the effect poor skin (particularly on our faces) can have on confidence, and with so many products claiming to be the cure, where do you start? Our treatment offers you direct access to an experienced dermatologist and a technique that is proven to enhance your skin and your confidence too.
