Microdermabrasion was one of the most popular non-surgical procedures in 2001, it is a skin revitalizing method that uses exfoliation to smooth lines, scars and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that can combat signs of ageing and sun-damaged skin. It also treats acne, acne scarring, stretch marks and helps sun damaged skin in need of rejuvenation.
Microdermabrasion provides improvement in many skin problem areas. It has little to no down time and the procedure is fast and provides little discomfort. It complements most treatment programmes by providing a gentle but effective mechanical peeling of the skin.
The result is glowing younger-appearing skin tone including an improvement in the skin’s texture and appearance.
Microdermabrasion uses fine particles of aluminum oxide to remove the dead layer of cells from the skin, and stimulate the production of new collagen and cells in the deeper layers of the skin. The micro crystals cause a gentle exfoliation of the skin and removal of dead cells. It sometimes is referred to as a ‘sandblasting’ technique.
The microdermabrasion system is so successful, due to its unique combination of a high-velocity vacuum and filter system. The aluminum oxide crystals are sterile and self-contained so they never touch human hands before they brush across your skin.
