Micro Dermabrasion

Micro Dermabrasion Explained

Your skin is exposed to environmental elements every day. Over the years, the sun’s rays, pollution, and other damaging agents can take a toll on your skin. Microdermabrasion treatment can help reduce or eliminate the wrinkles and fine lines, “crow’s feet,” age spots, light acne scars, and undesired pigmentation that may appear on the skin over time.

Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance. Microdermabrasion is much gentler than Dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is a more intensive procedure used to treat deeper facial lines, extreme sun damage, and scars.

The Procedure

During a microdermabrasion treatment, one of our practitioners will direct a stream of tiny (“micro”) aluminium oxide crystals through a hand piece that is placed against the skin. These Dermabrasion crystals exfoliate the skin, and the mild suction created by the microdermabrasion system removes the skin debris and crystals.

Microdermabrasion helps produce thicker, healthier skin layers; multiple treatments are vital because they encourage the production of a new layer of skin cells that contains higher levels of collagen and elastin. Both of these components are essential for vibrant, healthy skin, and they will further improve your complexion and the overall appearance of your skin.

Approximately five to twelve treatments spaced two to three weeks apart are usually necessary to reap full microdermabrasion benefits. Convenient and virtually painless, the microdermabrasion procedure takes only 30 to 60 minutes and is commonly referred to as the “lunch hour facial.

Is the Procedure Painful?

The microdermabrasion procedure exfoliates dead cells from the skin’s surface. While it is not painful, the treatment can cause a slight warming sensation as the abrasive microdermabrasion crystals gently slough away old and damaged layers of skin. Some patients have likened the experience to having a facial massage. After a microdermabrasion treatment, the newly revealed layer of skin is usually more sensitive and requires extra protection from the sun. You should not feel uncomfortable, but you should be particularly careful about wearing sunscreens. Applying moisturizing creams to hydrate and calm the skin can also prevent any potential irritation. A good aesthetician, registered nurse, or dermatologist will be able to suggest a facial cream or lotion that is best suited for your skin type.

Brief introduction to Diamond Peel

Our Micro Dermabrasion Machine is a diamond peeling machine. The newly developed “Miniature Sculpture” is a quick, safe and efficient skin renewal technique through gentle polishing of the skin using diamond heads of different sizes inbuilt in the sculpture head. The peeling, of which the thickness can be controlled by our practitioner. This machine has good efficacy for sun-shine-aging, pigment deposition and wide pores companied with vacuum suction.

Theory

With the diamond grains in heads and vacuum suction, Our Micro is able to grind the dead layer and dirt out from epidermis, resulting in improved skin status, effectively decrease tiny wrinkles, smoothen scars, treat acne and uneven surface of skins. It stimulates collagen reproduction assisting epidermis rebirth and enhance skins elastic. It is the safest, most effective way of physical superficial skin renewal.

Good efficacy for:

  • Face
  • Aged tarnish skin without elasticity
  • Pigmentation
  • Wrinkle
  • Wide pores
  • Scar
  • Gravid wrinkles Remove dead skin
  • Fade tattoo and pigments

Ideal Candidates

Patients with fine facial lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or minor scars are good candidates for microdermabrasion. Patients with rosacea or acne may also benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. The gentle spray of microcrystals can eliminate or improve skin imperfections and conditions by removing the upper layer of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal new, fresh skin.

The ideal candidates for microdermabrasion are healthy adults who have relatively minor skin conditions or imperfections and realistic expectations about what microdermabrasion can and cannot do.

Microdermabrasion for Acne

Microdermabrasion can be used to treat acne and the scars that acne causes. Microdermabrasion treatments can eliminate or greatly reduce the appearance of lighter scarring. However, for deep acne scars (known as “pock marks” or “ice-pick acne scars”) microdermabrasion may not be able to provide desired results. Deeper scars can usually be effectively treated with Fractional RF Micro Needling. Patients with active acne may also benefit from microdermabrasion treatments, which exfoliate the skin and clear clogged pores of oil and dirt. Because the polishing action of the crystal and the removal of skin cells can aggravate acne, however, a consultation with a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon is advised to help determine whether a patient’s acne or acne scars can be effectively treated with microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion for Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic inflammation of facial skin characterized by redness, prominent blood vessels, swelling, and/or skin eruptions that look similar to acne.

Microdermabrasion can be used to decrease the redness associated with rosacea. However, if you have been diagnosed with rosacea and are considering microdermabrasion, you should consult a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon prior to treatment because microdermabrasion can negatively affect active rosacea.

Who Is Not a Good Candidate?

Microdermabrasion is not recommended for people who have:

  1. Deep scars
  2. Active keloids
  3. Undiagnosed lesions
  4. A recent herpes outbreak
  5. Warts on the face
  6. Active acne
  7. An auto-immune system disorder
  8. Unstable diabetes
  9. Pregnant women

Candidates who have had a recent chemical peel or other skin procedure such as collagen injections should wait a two to three weeks before undergoing microdermabrasion.

Prospective patients should also refrain from waxing or tanning the skin to be treated for a few weeks before microdermabrasion treatment. Individuals with deep scars, facial creases, or other moderate-to-severe skin defects should consider a stronger treatment such as Fractional RF Micro Needling.

Risks and Benefits

Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-surgical, “lunch hour” procedure that provides many benefits. Microdermabrasion reduces or eliminates fine facial lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging; it improves the appearance of acne scars and other light scarring; and it gives skin of all colours and types a fresh, healthy-looking glow. It does all this with virtually no side effects. And because microdermabrasion uses non-allergenic crystals to treat the skin, it is an excellent treatment for skin that is sensitive to chemicals. Microdermabrasion does not present any serious risks when it is performed by a qualified provider. Some people may experience slight skin irritation after microdermabrasion. Since everyone’s skin and health history differ to some degree, the risks and benefits of microdermabrasion must be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Recovery and Results

Microdermabrasion is often called a “lunch hour” treatment because it’s a quick procedure that can be performed at our clinic during your lunch hour with little or no discomfort. The treated skin may be pink after the treatment, but this will usually fade within a few hours. You can apply makeup soon after undergoing microdermabrasion to conceal any visible signs of the treatment.
