What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an aesthetic procedure where the skin is exfoliated mechanically. Focused columns of fine, sterile, inert aluminum oxide crystals are targeted at the outer layer of the skin, which removes cells of the skin’s outermost layer. The crystal and skin cells are vacuumed off of the skin by the unit simultaneously.
How does microdermabrasion work?
A fine jet of medical-grade aluminium oxide crystals are applied to the skin gently via a hand piece of the main unit. When the crystals make contact with the skin’s surface, the dead outer layer of skin is removed. The vacuum pressure of the system removes the dead skin and crystals at the same time, and transport them safely to the unit’s waste container. Sessions usually comprise of around 45 minutes each.
How many sessions will I need?
This will be determined in your initial consultation. The amount of sessions required depends on your skin type and the area being treated. Generally, a full course of microdermabrasion will consist of approximately six sessions, at least a week apart.
What skin complaints does microdermabrasion treat?
