Microdermabrasion

UPDATE : We now also offer microdermabrasion with CACI, which offers much safer procedure, withouth risks of hyperpigmentation (staining/darkening) which can happen with traditional microdermabrasion procedure. At the end of the procedure we offer at no extra cost facial lymphatic drainage which is extremely important for the skin health!

Microdermabrasion treatments accomplish what no other non-surgical procedure can do in combating the signs of aging and sun-damaged skin. It is a safe, nonsurgical, comprehensive, and progressive approach to treat skin.

HOW DOES MICRODERMABRASION WORK?

Ultra Skin Resurfacing: Microdermabrasion is a technique for removing the damaged, upper layers of the skin in order to reveal the suppler, more radiant skin beneath. This layer of old, dull surface skin sheds naturally when w are very young, but as we age this process slows, allowing this layer to accumulate on the surface and to obscure the healthy cells below. Ultra Skin Resurfacing: Microdermabrasion removes this dull layer using mechanical and chemical exfoliation modalities. Controlled abrasion and suction prepares the skin for application of exfoliants, including Lactic and Vitamin A solutions. This helps to reveal the younger, smoother, more evenly textured skin beneath as well as to promote new cell growth and plump fine wrinkles and shallow scars. Generally you may require more than one treatment which is discussed during a consultation with our trained member of staff

WHAT EQUIPMENT IS USED?

We use the more modern Diamond microdermabrasion machines , using a diamond tip head, there is no need for the oxide crystals. The diamond tip will abrade or remove the stratum corneum, the top layer of skin, and the dead skin and debris is vacuumed and filtered into the system and discarded.

We have top of the range diamond tip microdermabrasion machines and we lean toward the diamond dermabrasion for a few reasons. There are no crystals to get into the patients nose, ears, and eyes and there is no crystal residue to clean off the skin after treatment. In some cases there have been reports of people having side effects from regular treatments of the aluminum oxide microdermabrasion; such as itchy eyes, sore throats, headaches and even respiratory problems. If the treatment is done properly these side effects should not happen. There is a very low risk or none at all, of these side effects with the diamond tip microdermabrasion system.

Diamond tip leaves the skin less pink and irritated after treatment and patients are more comfortable because they do not feel the aluminum crystals beating up against their skin. The results with our system are still smooth radiant skin with reduced fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and pores.

We use Diamond microdermabrasion machines because are superior to other micro dermabrasion skin systems.

Yes, most patients experience only minor flushing and there is no anaesthesia required. We do ask that you refrain from using make-up on the day of your treatment to give the skin a chance to breath and regenerate itself. Exercise is not recommended for 24 hours post procedure as perspiration contains salt which can cause a stinging sensation.
