Microdermabrasion is a popular cosmetic treatment used in beauty to exfoliate andrejuvenate the skin. We utilise fine crystals, typically made of aluminum oxide tomechanically remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing a fresher,smoother complexion underneath.
Microdermabrasion crystal discs are attached to a handheld device that delivers acontrolled stream of crystals onto the skin's surface. The crystals create a mildabrasion when they meet the skin, while the negative pressure suction gentlyremoves the dead cells and other impurities into a vacuum system.
The primary benefit of microdermabrasion crystal discs is exfoliation. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, the discs promote cell turnover, allowing new, healthier skin cells to surface. This process can help improve the appearance of various skin concerns, including dullness, uneven texture, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
The mechanical exfoliation performed by crystal discs also stimulates bloodcirculation in the treated areas. This increased circulation can enhance lymphaticdrainage, delivering oxygen and nutrient to the skin cells, promoting a healthiercomplexion.
Microdermabrasion can stimulate collagen production in the dermis of the skin (second layer of the skin where collagen is created). Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin. By promoting collagen synthesis, microdermabrasion can help improve skin firmness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The removal of dead skin cells through microdermabrasion can enhance the absorption of skincare products that are applied afterwards. With the outer barrier removed, moisturisers, serums, and other treatment modalities can penetrate the skin more effectively, maximising their benefits.
Microdermabrasion crystal discs can leave the skin looking and feeling rejuvenated. The treatment can give the complexion a brighter, more radiant appearance and a smoother texture. It is particularly beneficial for individuals with sun-damaged skin, mild acne scars, or uneven skin tone.
Compared to more invasive procedures, microdermabrasion generally has minimal downtime. While the skin may appear slightly pink or feel slightly sensitive after treatment, these effects usually subside within a few hours. It is a non-surgical and non-chemical treatment option that can be performed on various skin types.It's important to note that while microdermabrasion can provide noticeable improvements in the skin's appearance, multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended for optimal results. The exact number of sessions will depend on individual needs and desired outcomes. Before considering microdermabrasion or any skincare treatment, it is advisable to consult with one of our qualified skincare professionals who can assess your skin's condition and provide personalised recommendations.
