Known in some circles as the instant facelift or facial resurfacing, Microdermabrasion involves the non-surgical removal of the surface skin layer using tiny rough grains to buff & vaccum away dead skin cells. The body then interprets this as a mild injury & rushes to replace the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones.
Microdermabrasion works brilliantly to clear clogged pores & remove visible imperfections like sun damage, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, blemishes & fine lines. The treatment includes deep moisturisation because once the upper layer of skin is removed, creams can much more effectively reach the lower layers of skin.
The feel of your skin is amazing! Increasingly, men & women alike opt for a series of Microdermabrasion treatments over invasive procedures such as Botox & plastic Surgery because the results when done well, leave you looking younger & vibrant & your skin soft & smooth. It’s absolutely essential to source a highly qualified microdermabrasion technician, such as those certified by MojoGuru & have a consultation prior to the procedure. The results are gratifying & typically show visible, near immediate results & a healthy glow.
A Microdermabrasion treatment removes the outer-most layer of dead skin cells on the face, neck or chest by using a specialised tool (some with a diamond tip) to shoot a stream of tiny crystals such as sodium chloride, magnesium oxide or sodium bicarbonate. The tool then uses a suction system to collect the exfoliated skin cells & used crystals. The action stimulates blood flow & improves cell production, which in turn rejuvenates the skin’s elasticity & texture.
The procedure is typically 30 minutes, includes deep moisturisation & for some (not all) may be a tad uncomfortable but it isn't painful - in fact, some find it relaxing! Your skin may feel a little tender afterwards & redness might be present for a day or two, but this is not always the case. It's really dependent upon the practitioner & the type of machine used.
It’s essential to take extra care after treatment to protect your skin from sun exposure throoughout the healing process. The treatment generally recommends 6-10 sessions for optimal results with a 2-week rest period between appointments. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for those with skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, active sunburn, herpes, lupus, open sores, psoriasis, fragile capillaries or widespread acne. Always seek professional medical advice.
