Microdermabrasion is a safe and comfortable mechanical / physical exfoliation of the skin that allows you to achieve ideal results efficiently and without complications or discomfort. Microdermabrasion maybe combined with skin peels for a more intense treatment. The treatment is effective and suitable for most skin types and will improve the general appearance of the skin just after one session.
What Microdermabrasion do we use at Skin Smart Clinic?
At Skin Smart Clinic we use the Derma Genesis Medical Microdermabrasion device. The treatment is efficient, comfortable and is a deep exfoliating treatment. The device removes dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production. Microdermabrasion treats several common skin concerns. If you suffer from dull tired skin, congested, oily, dry and uneven skin tone and rough textured skin, Microdermabrasion is the ideal treatment for you.
A microdermabrasion skin treatment involves the application of a small probe over the outer layer of the skin with medical grade crystals that are vacuumed across the outer surface of the skin. The crystals remove the outermost layer of dead skin by mechanical or physical exfoliation, exposing the healthy skin cells that are soft and smooth. This process allows the optimum absorption of nutrients into our skin. During your skin treatment with Microdermabrasion medical grade products are then applied post the microdermabrasion pass and these nutrients will go deeper into the skin as we have removed the outer dead layer of dead skin build up, thus promoting cell growth and providing anti-ageing and stimulation of collagen production. Your skin specialist may combine your microdermabrasion with a skin peel for maximum results.
Microdermabrasion is performed by a skin specialist using a hand piece with a small probe with vacuum suction that is applied in an upward motion to the skin passing over the skin two or three times. This removes the stratum corneum which is the outermost layer of skin. The next layer the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the mechanical exfoliation and abrasion of the vacuum suction. This promotes the stimulation of new collagen, which thickens the dermis our deeper layer of the skin and improves resistance to the effects of ageing.
