Microdermabrasion is a fast, non-invasive procedure that gently resurfaces the skin. It can help improve the appearance of roughly textured skin, fine wrinkles, superficial scars, uneven pigmentation and age spots. It may also be used to assist in the treatment of other skin conditions, such as acne.
Microdermabrasion removes damaged skin by gently “sand blasting” the top layers of the skin with tiny crystals. This removes the outermost layer of skin (exfoliation), exposing the newer skin cells below. This stimulates the growth of new skin cells, leading to more youthful-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion is usually performed on the face and neck, but can be performed on any part of the body. It can be used on all types of skin and complexions, including oily, dry, light and dark skin. Microdermabrasion may be used alone or in combination with other procedures such as chemical peels. The procedure usually needs to be performed multiple times to obtain satisfactory results. A typical regimen involves four to eight treatments, at intervals of one to three weeks, and our skincare specialists will recommend a regimen best suited for your needs.
What to expect:
Although considered a fairly painless procedure, some people with particularly sensitive skin may complain of mild irritation. Aside from minimal redness, microdermabrasion does not have any serious known risks or side effects.
