Why Microdermabrasion ?
Microdermabrasion is a convenient, nonsurgical way to enjoy beautiful, smooth skin. The skin is literally polished by high speed aluminium oxide crystals. The procedure helps restore the skin and remove blemishes with few downsides.
Microdermabrasion can help you enjoy the benefits of beautiful, smooth skin for a younger, more vital look. Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive process used to reduce fine lines and scars, treat acne, and alleviate sun damage. Ideal candidates for microdermabrasion are men and women who have minor skin problems who prefer the greater convenience of this procedure versus alternative skin resurfacing treatments.
Abrasive, aluminum oxide crystals are propelled at a high speed across the skin. This creates a polishing effect and leaves the skin feeling remarkably smooth. Since Microdermabrasion removes only the topmost layer of dead skin cells, it does not involve any pain or healing time. Sometimes referred to as "The Lunchtime Peel," the microdermabrasion technique is performed on an outpatient basis. Its convenience is clear: it is quick, relatively painless and results can be seen immediately. No anesthesia is required and there is little if no downtime and few if no side effects. A full-face treatment generally takes 20 to 30 minutes, depending upon the extent of the procedure.
Preparation & Recovery
Since this is not a surgical procedure little preparation and recovery is needed. It is best to stop the use of any retinol or vitamin A skincare 24-48 hours before your appointment to avoid over exfoliation.
Direct sun exposure should be avoided for 1-2 weeks after treatment. SPF 30+ should also be applied every day even if you don't expect to be in direct sunlight.
