What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a progressive rather than an aggressive treatment which is dermatologist and dermatology approved. Microdermabrasion instantly rejuvenates and lifts tired skin and can also be used for more in-depth treatments such as for lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and pigmentation problems – it does it all.
Microdermabrasion is a safe controlled way to exfoliate skin and superficially peel the Stratum Corneum, reducing its thickness through mechanical abrasion of the dead skin cells. A flow of crystals hit the skin’s surface, the speed and abrasiveness of these crystals gently removes the epidermal cells layer by layer. Used crystals and dead skin cells are drawn away through the vacuum action allowing for controlled exfoliation. This gentle vacuum action also gives an immediate lifting effect on tired muscles and stimulates the blood supply to the skin’s surface, this helps to promote new collagen and elastin formation. Specific attention is given to any areas of concern such as open pores, fine lines and wrinkles, blemished skin or acne scaring, resulting in dramatically rejuvenated skin.
