What is Medical Microdermabrasion?
Medical Microdermabrasion is a non surgical method of rejuvenation by means of mechanical skin exfoliation without chemicals or laser. The treatment can be used on the face, chest, back or shoulders.
At Dermis clinic we offer Medical Microdermabrasion, which uses medical grade aluminium crystals that are much more inert and effective than what is used for standard microdermabrasion treatments. Medical grade crystals are passed over the skin using a hand held device through a vacuum directly on to the outer layer of the skin’s surface. These crystals, delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin’s surface are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells and effectively stimulating the production of collagen. The vacuum capacity used in Medical Mircrodermabrasion is significantly stronger than what is used during standard microdermabrasion, therefore providing deeper penetration and guaranteeing better results.
How does it work?
Over the course of your facial treatments a wand delivering a fine jet of abrasive crystals will be passed over the skin. Dead skin particles will be abraded away and a vacuum action will remove the debris. This dual action will both resurface the skin and stimulate the blood flow, encouraging the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce collagen and elastin. With each of your subsequent treatments, the intensity of the facial microdermabrasion can be increased – reaching to deeper layers and successfully removing acne scarring, lifting pigmentation and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
Is it safe?
This procedure is very safe.
Does it hurt?
Medical Microdermabrasion is a non invasive, painless procedure, although you may experience slight discomfort for a short time as the aluminium crystals are delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin’s surface. However, the controls of the hand held device and vacuum capacity are flexible, so you can opt for a less intense treatment.
After the Treatment?
Avoid saunas, exercise, and hot baths/showers until the redness has gone.Your skin may become dry 3-5 days following the treatment which normally subsides in a few days. Always make sure that your hands are thoroughly clean when touching your face post procedure. Use tepid water and a non-irritant cleanser to cleanse the face following the treatment, until the redness has gone. It is recommended that makeup is not applied for 24 hours after the procedure where possible. Avoid intensive sunlight exposure and artificial UV exposure for a period of at least 2-3 weeks after the procedure. Treatment intervals are recommended every 10-14 days with a course of 6 treatments, and maintenance 3 monthly, or when required. For best results combine with laser facial rejuvenation.
