Medical microdermabrasion is non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure immediately restores smoother looking skin, and is a virtually painless alternative to chemical and laser peels. A versatile procedure, it can be combined with other treatments to help achieve the desired results and is used in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, acne prone skin, blackheads, whiteheads, superficial age spots and hyperpigmentation as well as to assist with oily, dry or patchy skin.
Medical microdermabrasion treatment involves the passing of a hand held probe over the skin that delivers a highly controlled stream of medical grade crystals that exfoliate the skin, the debris being immediately vacuumed away. The process improves the texture and colour of the skin, revealing the healthy underlying skin cells, and promoting the production of collagen that thickens the skin and improves its resistance to ageing.
The results are instant, and unlike chemical peels, medical microdermabrasion usually does not require preparation prior to treatment. This treatment is well accepted for use by men and women and has the additional benefit of allowing the patient to return to normal activities immediately.
