Microdermabrasion is used to treat a range of skin conditions and can be used without requiring any time away from work etc as there are no significant external signs apparent to others. Medical microdermabrasion is a non surgical resurfacing procedure undertaken by fully trained professionals. This treatment can be used at any age for males and females. Microdermabrasion is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment which allows clients to continue normal activities as it has no downtime. Commonly treated conditions comprise ;
- Effects of sun damage
- Age Spots
- Acne related Conditions
- Fine lines and Fine wrinkles
- Blackheads and Whiteheads
The treatment uses a regulated flow of fine ,medical grade cyrstals to remove the outer layer of dead skin which as a result produces a smoother and softer skin surface. During the procedure , the operator uses a handpiece which moves across the skin surface . The medical grade crystals remove the stratum corneum which is the most outer skin surface . Excess matErial is removed by the vacuum produced by the handpiece. The epidermis of the skin is also stimulated in addition to the dermis which produces new collagen and causes a resultant thickening of the dermis. Microdermabrasion usually takes 20 to 30 minutes although this depends on the skin type and condItion.
Improvements in the texture and outward appearance of the skin can in many cases be noted immediately after the first treatment . The benefits are most evident after multiple treatments done usually as part of a course and continued with regular maintenance treatments.
