Medical microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and quick treatment that gently and thoroughly removes dead skin cells, resulting in skin that looks softer, smoother and younger. It’s also a great treatment to have a day or two before an event or special occasion, as your skin will glow and make-up applies a lot smoother and even on the skin. You will usually notice an immediate improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance.
Medical microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the deepest layer of the dermis, cleans pores and aids in controlling breakouts. It also stimulates collagen networking to further even out skin texture and tone. Treatments can be performed within a lunch break and normal daily activities can be resumed immediately.
A special machine is used that releases a controlled spray of fine crystals through a hand piece that is swept across the skin. The crystals "abrade" or exfoliate the skin. In addition, vacuum suction from the hand piece removes the crystals along with the dead skin cells. This peeling and vacuuming process helps to "purge" the sticky material that causes plugs in your pores and increases circulation, which encourages skin renewal. Treatments usually take about 40 minutes depending on your needs.
How many treatments are recommended for optimum results?
At FAB Inc we recommend a course of 4 - 6 treatments performed weekly or fortnightly, depending on your skin condition, however the result after just one treatment is an immediate enhanced skin appearance. You will notice prolonged results and improvements in many areas such as the evenness and pore size reduction of the skin after a course of treatments.
What are the benefits of Medical Microdermabrasion?
Medical microdermabrasion is a popular treatment for acne. It's a great alternative or addition to chemical peels in the treatment of mild, non-inflammatory acne. The result is smoother skin texture, and can minimise the appearance of enlarged pores and dark spots from previous break outs.
Medical microdermabrasion treatments alone will not keep your skin clear. You'll also need to treat your skin daily at home with the proper skin care system to keep new plugs from forming in your pores.
