- What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is the most natural, non-invasive skin resurfacing process available. It is a gentle, safe and effective skin rejuvenation therapy. The topmost epidermal layer is removed by gently abrading the skin while at the same time dead skin cells are vacuumed away in a sterile and controlled manner.
Microdermabrasion minimizes the appearance of common cosmetic ailments such as sun damaged skin, fine lines, acne and trauma scars, aging hands, dull skin, oily skin, and hyper-pigmentation.
- Does microdermabrasion work on all skin types and colors?
Yes, it is safe to use on all skin types and colors. The microdermabrasion peel enables the practitioners to adjust the abrasion strength according to the patients’ skin type.
- How long does a treatment take?
Microdermabrasion treatments typically last about 25-35 minutes. There is less discomfort and the recovery is faster than any other procedure. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following the procedure.
- When and what result is to be expected from the treatments?
You can experience a significant change to skin texture even after one treatment. Depending on the frequency of the treatments and the area treated, an improvement in skin appearance will be noticeable. Visible results will be gained after 3-5 sessions if performed every 7-10 days and will keep improving throughout the treatment program.
