Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular non-surgical beauty treatments around, and it offers a multitude of benefits to anyone wanting clearer, smoother and more youthful looking skin.

A highly effective form of exfoliation, it involves sloughing away dead skin, oils and other debris.  Patients come to the Nova Clinic for microdermabrasion to treat a number of skin concerns including acne, scarring, coarse skin, enlarged pores and brown spots.

The process of microdermabrasion stimulates the skin from deep within, encouraging cell turnover and the production of collagen. Different strengths of microdermabrasion can be used according to the severity of the skin condition – the more pressure applied, the deeper the technician is able to go.

There are two types of microdermabrasion. Crystal microdermabrasion applies miniscule crystals onto the skin’s surface, whereas non-crystal microdermabrasion is applied with a special disc.

Microdermabrasion can be used on all skin types, and it serves as a fantastic alternative to more intrusive treatments like chemical peels. It opens up the pores, allowing the skin to be cleansed deep within and preparing it for the application of beauty treatments. This makes it particularly popular with patients who suffer with blackheads and pimples, but it’s also highly effective on wrinkles and dull looking skin.

The Microdermabrasion Treatment

The therapist uses a special hand held wand with a tiny head containing the disc or exfoliating crystals. The wand is moved over the skin, targeting problem areas. It is a painless procedure that doesn’t require anaesthetic, but you may feel some tugging and roughness. Once the treatment is complete (usually after about half an hour), a hydrating lotion is applied to the skin.

Who is suitable for microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-intrusive treatment that is suitable for many different types of skin problems. Patients with acne, blackheads, scarring and wrinkles may find it particularly helpful as it helps to resurface the skin and produce a fresher, smoother canvas for makeup application.

Does microdermabrasion hurt?

The microdermabrasion process is not painful, although you may experience some slight tugging and a feeling of roughness on the skin during the treatment. There will probably be some mild redness after the procedure, but this actually makes skin look clean and youthful rather than sore or inflamed.

How many sessions of microdermabrasion will I need?

Microdermabrasion should be used as a regular beauty treatment, not a permanent solution to any skin problems. It is advisable to repeat the process every few weeks to promote the healthy production of skin cells and maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.
