Say goodbye to dull skin! If you’re looking for smooth, radiant skin, diamond microdermabrasion could be the answer. Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective anti ageing Skin resurfacing Treatment in Melbourne. Over time, frequent use of sun block, moisturisers and make-up eventually clogs the pores of the skin. Twice daily cleansing and regular exfoliation might keep your skin topically cleaned, but what about deep inside the pores and follicles? The skin’s pores and follicles need to be regularly cleaned to prevent the build-up of impurities and dead skin cells, which can give your skin a dull, gray look. Diamond Microdermabrasion exfoliation is a skin rejuvenation treatment which gently removes the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, hands, and body, and is ideal for superficial hyper-pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, open pores, and blackheads. What’s more, the exfoliation is combined with a “vacuuming” process, which deeply cleanses the skin of impurities, giving it a fresher, younger appearance.
What is diamond microdermabrasion?
The skin consists of two main layers – the dermis and the epidermis. Above the epidermis is the stratum corneum, which forms a barrier between the lower skin layers and the outside world. Diamond microdermabrasion targets the stratum corneum, which consists of dead skin cells, which can prevent the skin’s true radiance from shining through. It is a quick, safe, effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and colours, with no downtime and no pain or discomfort. This non-invasive exfoliating technique minimises trauma and creates a healthy and glowing skin by promoting new skin cell growth. Diamond microdermabrasion treatment softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth textured skin, reduces scarring, decreases pore size and lightens superficial hyper-pigmentation, commonly known as age spots. At Medix Skincare & Laser Clinic, Melbourne we include best diamond microdermabrasion deals as part of our skincare package for teenagers to reduce acne scarring. Microdermabrasion can also be used on the body to reduce other types of scarring such as stretch marks. The smooth crystal-free tip with abrasive/filter pad works without “scratching” sensitive or thin skin areas with crystals, so it is safe for even sensitive skin. With the help of our high quality microdermabrasion machine and our experienced therapists, Medix Skincare & Laser Clinic is one of the best microdermabrasion Specialists in Melbourne.
What happens during the microdermabrasion treatment?
Diamond microdermabrasion systems operate without the need for crystals. The treatment tip we use at Medix Skincare & Laser Clinic, Melbourne consists of tiny diamonds that abrade the skin so that the dead, flaking skin is removed and vacuumed through the machine. The combination of skin exfoliation and slight suction stimulates reproduction of collagen by the fibroblasts and living cells at the basal layer of the epidermis. This effect improves cell turnover, blood flow and is ideal for reducing breakouts and blackheads.
It is a mild resurfacing treatment causing minimal damage to the skin surface and therefore results in younger looking skin and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles after microdermabrasion.
Diamond microdermabrasion is a very safe treatment, which can be used on most parts of the body and can also be used in conjunction with other skin care procedures such as VPL Laser or HydraFacial. It also makes it easier for today’s high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating the production of the collagen and elastin which give skin its youthful appearance, while improving the appearance of the neck and smile lines. The treatment is painless and doesn’t irritate the skin, so most people find that they can return to work immediately afterward. Combination of microdermabrasion and laser is a very effective program for skin rejuvenation and acne scars.
Are there any contraindications for the treatment?
Extremely sensitive skin
Vascular conditions like rosacea
Bacterial infections like active acne
Cuts and sunburn
Any injectable or fillers within the last 72 hours
How many treatments are recommended?
Having four to six treatments separated by one or two weeks often produces the best results, and additional treatments every month as a maintenance program is recommended.
What should I do before and after microdermabrasion treatment?
Avoid direct sun exposure, spray tanning or sun beds for 3 weeks before and after treatment and if going in the sun a high SPF sunscreen should be applied.
Avoid peeling or waxing for 7 days before or after treatment.
Skincare products, which are rich in vitamin A, E and C will improve the result.
Are there any side effects for microdermabrasion treatment?
Some people may experience a little redness, as well as tightening of the skin, similar to mild sunburn. This should only last for a short period of time and should not create discomfort. There have been no major side effects associated with the treatment and healing time is usually a few hours. There is no downtime and normal routines can be resumed immediately.
