Benefits of Microdermabrasion
The purpose of microdermabrasion is to cause damage or disruption in the stratus corneum. This layer is the protective layer of the skin designed to prevent the smallest of molecules from penetrating its barrier. This is the layer where many fine wrinkle lines and blemishes are found.
The most common treatment areas are the face, neck, décolleté and hands
When should I see improvement?
The diamond tips vary in degree of abrasiveness. After the diamond abrades the surface of the skin it causes the body to react to protect and repair the damaged area by rushing to replace the lost skin cells with healthy new cells. Improvement can be seen immediately.
What are the possible side effects?
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after treatment but for most people skin should return to normal in 10 – 30 minutes. Occasionally the skin may feel warm to the touch and be slightly “tingly” for up to 24 hours following treatment
Is the treatment painful?
Micro skin resurfacing treatments using the Diamondtome system are painless yet effective. The degree of effectiveness is controlled by a widely adjustable vacuum in conjunction with varying coarseness of the DiamondTome wands.
How many sessions will I require
A course of 4 – 10 sessions at regular intervals of 10 – 14 days is recommended depending on the condition being treated and treatments typically last 45 minutes. To obtain optimum results, this treatment may also be used in conjunction with other treatments such as skin peels and LED light therapy.
How long do the results last?
After the first treatment the skin will have a fresh, radiant glow. Improvement will continue throughout the treatment programme and generally fine lines, wrinkles and age spots become greatly diminished and skin seems to be softer, smoother and younger looking.
Results can be maintained with the correct use of professional homecare products such as Dermaquest , Agera Rx skin care ranges and regular maintenance of micro skin resurfacing every 4 – 6 weeks. A recommended sunscreen must be able to protect you against all types of sunrays, UVA and UVB, and UVC.
