Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is recommended for the following conditions: dull, devitalized, sun damaged, scarred, open pored skin.

Microdermabrasion is a skin freshening technique that helps to repair skin on the face and body, which has taken a beating from the sun and the effects of ageing. Microdermabrasion buffs and polishes the skin to achieve a healthy glow and helps alleviate fine lines, pigmentation, acne and dull dry skin. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. It is also an excellent treatment to remove the rough skin of keratosis pilaris found on the upper arms and shoulders. At Skin Inspiration, microdermabrasion is used either by itself or in conjunction with enzymes, AHA’s, IPL stimulation and LED treatments.

How Microdermabrasion Works

A fine flow of crystals with applied vacuum suction results in a very gentle “sandblasting” of the skin, removing dead surface cells and clearing the pores of debris. Over time and in conjunction with AHA’s, enzymes, IPL and Light Emitting Diode technology, pigment fades away and surface irregularities, such as fine wrinkles and acne scars, begin to soften. Microdermabrasion is also and excellent addition to regular skin treatments in order to maximize their benefit.

What to Expect

Treatment of the whole face takes about 30-40 minutes as a stand alone treatment. There is no pain. The area treated may be pink for a day or two and can be surface dry. This is remedied by sloughing with gauze and toning lotion and good hydrating homecare. Sloughing off the uppermost layer of the skin reveals a fresher and younger looking skin. Regular microdermabrasion sessions are perfect for keeping superficial lines to a minimum and maintaining a fresh healthy complexion.
