Crystal – Microdermabrasion:- Is a gentle technique of exfoliation, performed using a fine jet of mineral crystals (aluminium oxide).
The crystals are blown across the surface of the skin under pressure and are immediately vacuumed back up.
3D –Skintech – Rotational Microdermabrasion:- This latest 3D –Skintech technology combines the latest in adjustable , rotational control with variable vacuum to ensure a precise yet comfortable service without the downtime
These MDA procedure removes the unwanted dead and outermost layer of skin cells to reveal the fresher, more youthful looking skin beneath.
In addition to this cleansing action, microdermabrasion also improves the effectiveness of other treatments such as laser and skin care products.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE AND DOES IT HURT?
The average microdermabrasion session takes less than 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the condition of the skin and area needing to be treated.
There is virtually no discomfort or recovery time, and normal activities can be resumed immediately
We recommend a package of 4 to 6 treatment sessions, at 2 weekly-intervals.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FOLLOWING TREATMENT?
Mild redness may occur, similar to sunburn. However, make-up can be applied immediately and there is little or no recovery time needed post treatment.
CAN ALL AREAS OF THE BODY BE TREATED AND DOES SKIN COLOUR MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
All areas of the body can be treated, but it should be emphasised that resurfacing techniques work best on facial skin. Furthermore, all types of skin colour can be treated.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICRODERMABRASION, CHEMICAL PEELS, AND LASER SKIN RESURFACING?
The advantage of medical microdermabrasion is that is relatively low risk. Results are also seen quite rapidly, compared to traditional resurfacing techniques such as dermabrasion, chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
This however, can serve as both an advantage, and a limitation. The fast healing and low risk of microdermabrasion, work on very superficial epidermal injury, hence only shallow scars and fine lines can be addressed.
It is not as effective for deep wrinkles and scars, because these lesions extend into the deeper dermis. Patients with these problems are best treated with more aggressive techniques such as DermaPen or laser rejuvenation.
IS MICRODERMABRASION SAFE?
There is no evidence to suggest that treatment can lead to skin disorders or even an increased risk of skin cancer.
