What is Microdermabasion?
Micro-Dermabrasion a non surgical aesthetic procedure that uses crystals to strike and exfoliate the surface of the skin. Originally developed in the early 1980′s as a further development of dermabrasion, Micro-dermabrasion in its truest definition is in fact “polishing of the skin”. The idea being to provide a deep exfoliation treatment and an alternative to chemical peels.
By removing the outer layers of the skin which are older, drier and in most cases dead, younger skin cells are revealed. This makes the skin look newer, fresher and “younger”. The appearance change is immediate and although the treatment is sometimes accompanied by minor, temporary reddening of the skin this will usually abate within a few hours, meaning that in most cases the treatment can be performed with relatively little or no downtime and is a perfect “lunchtime treatment” for busy clients who want excellent, visible but above all quick results. A Microdermabrasion treatment stimulates collagen by up to 20%.
Treatments can be done as a one-off, however, we recommend a client receive a series of 6 treatments followed by a series of “maintenance” treatments at monthly intervals. To talk to our trained team at Visage Clinic in Remuera, contact us.
Aside from what we have covered above in relation to removing dead, dull outer layers of the skin to expose younger, fresher, healthier looking skin there are a number of benefits to Micro-Dermabrasion.
- Tighter Skin
- Reduction in T-Zone oiliness
- Temporary pore size reduction
- Assistance in the treatment of acne
