Microdermabrasion is used to remove scars, blemishes and rough skin leaving the skin smooth, even toned and radiant.
With microdermabrasion your skin will feel soft, smooth with reduction in scars and hyperpigmentation. For those with oily skin, there will also be a reduction in oiliness. Your dermatologist will give you follow up advice to be carried out at home to enhance these benefits.
After a set of microdermabrasion procedures designed by our dermatologist you will have to maintain these results either by home care practices or return to the clinic for follow up sessions to get the maximum benefits.
What are Microdermabrasion treatments like?
We effect a superficial skin polishing with the aid of a delicate hand piece, through which micro-crystals are vacuumed. This technique delivers a gentle abrasion which efficiently produces satisfying results in as little as twenty minutes. Microdermabrasion treatments enhance your skin’s appearance through a course of weekly sessions. These treatments combat the signs of aging skin, thus achieving what no other available treatment can (without surgery). Most importantly, microdermabrasion is safe to use on all skin color and types.
How will I see results?
After your first treatment, your skin will have a fresh pink glow. Improvement continues through-out your treatment program. The number of treatments recommended for maximum results ranges from two to twelve.
How long do the treatments take?
Microdermabrasion treatments usually last about 10 to 30 minutes. However, treatments for stretch marks can take as long as two hours. During your sessions we focus on your problem areas, but time can be given to other areas of concern.
