Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure for treating superficial and deep skin damage resulting from trauma, aging or sun exposure. Microdermabrasion uses a directed stream of micro-crystal
s, combined with vacuum to rejuvenate the skin. Professionals have successfully used Microdermabrasion systems since 1998.
This crystal microdermabrasion is a powerful but gentle anti-aging procedure that exfoliates, refreshes and renews your skin. It is an effective therapy that, when used alone, or in combination with surgery, facials, moisturizing treatments and chemical peels reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, acne scars and other skin imperfections. Optimal results can be seen after five to eight sessions, depending upon skin type and skin condition.
Indications for Use:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Acne scars and other scars
Enlarged and/or oily pores
Blackheads and/or whiteheads
Age spots/superficial pigmentation
Adjunctive to cosmetic surgery
Blending skin after laser surgery
Microdermabrasion can bring a new vibrant glow to your skin that is fresh, vital and rejuvenated.
So what exactly is microdermabrasion, what does it promise and what effect does it actually have on your face?
Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. Many different products and treatments use this method, including medical procedures, salon treatments and creams and scrubs that you apply yourself at home. It's usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. Before we can understand how microdermabrasion does what it does, it's important to understand how skin works.
Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and thedermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. It's a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer is called thestratum corneum. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers. It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through.
When you put lotions or creams on your skin, some of the moisture passes through the stratum corneum, but not all of it. This layer is home to many minor skin imperfections like fine wrinkle lines and blemishes.
Whether done with a product at home or in a professional setting with a specialized tool, the principle of microdermabrasion is the same. The idea is that if you remove or break up the stratum corneum, the body interprets that as a mild injury and rushes to replace the lost skin cells with new and healthy ones. In the first hour after treatment, this causes mild edema (swelling) and erythema (redness). Depending on the individual, these side effects can last anywhere from an hour to two days.
This process has a few beneficial effects. With the stratum corneum gone, the skin's surface is improved. The healing process brings with it newer skin cells that look and feel smoother. Some of the skin's visible imperfections, like sun damage, blemishes and fine lines, are removed. Also, without the stratum corneum acting as a barrier, medicinal creams and lotions are more effective because more of their active ingredients and moisture can find their way down to the lower layers of skin. As microdermabrasion temporarily removes some moisture from the skin, it is always followed by the application of moisturizing creams.
Early studies suggest that repeated microdermabrasion treatment at regular intervals may influence the way the lower layers of skin grow, as well, removing deeper blemishes over time. Some evidence seems to indicate that the rapid loss of skin moisture may be what triggers the lower skin layers to work overtime in speeding healthy cells up to the surface.
