What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion or particle skin resurfacing is a non-invasive, non-surgical, procedure that uses a highly-controlled spray of fine aluminium oxide crystals to remove the outer layer of skin and reveal a younger, tighter, and more radiant skin underneath.
How does microdermabrasion work?
The microdermabrasion technique abrades the skin using a high-pressure flow of crystals. This is an effective treatment for fine wrinkles, enlarged pores, aging changes, and superficial scars with minimum risk and rapid recovery.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion makes your skin thicker and healthier. Multiple treatments are beneficial as they encourage the production of higher levels of collagen and elastin which are essential for healthy glowing skin. It further improves your complexion and the overall appearance of your skin.
How many treatments are necessary?
A series of 5-12 treatments are required to achieve good results. The treatment can be significantly longer in cases of acne scars. Initial treatments are scheduled weekly or biweekly followed by monthly to biannually for maintenance therapy. This technique should not be considered during concomitant use of Accutane (isotretinoin), active herpes infection, malignant skin tumours, and certain keratoses.
