Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
Microdermabrasion uses tiny exfoliating crystals that are sprayed on the skin. It works best on problems such as dull skin, brown spots, and age spots. It works on all skin types and colors. It makes subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. It is not effective for deeper problems such as scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, or deep acne scars. You might choose to get the procedure if they have the following skin concerns:
- fine lines and wrinkles
- hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots
- stretch marks
- dull-looking skin complexion
- enlarged pores and blackheads
- uneven skin tone and texture
- sun damage
Is Microdermabrasion right for me?
Microdermabrasion isn’t suitable for darker skin tones as they are more prone to pigmentation. If you have a darker skin tone, your Practitioner might suggest a Skin Peel as a great alternative to achieve clearer, fresher skin. If you have lighter skin and want a fresher, clearer, brighter look, Microdermabrasion is for you.
Microdermabrasion treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, superficial blemishes and marks, improve congested skin, mild pigmentation problems and generally become part of an anti-ageing treatment routine. Your consultation will be an opportunity to explore treatment solutions based on your exact needs.
If the candidate has a spot on the skin that is growing or changing, this may be indicative of skin cancer. In this case, it is recommended to undertake adequate screening and treatment, if needed, before performing microdermabrasion.
