Acne and acne scarring

Microdermabrasion can assist with acne and acne scarring by softening the appearance of existing scars. Further, it will limit future scarring as the process removes dead skin and bacterial buildup as well as excessive oil production thus killing the bacteria that causes active acne.

Microdermabrasion can also assist with chickenpox scars.

 

Skin pigmentation and sun damaged skin

Skin pigmentation creating freckles, age spots or skin patches can be the result of too much time in the sun.  Microdermabrasion can assist with skin pigmentation by lightning its appearance. A sun skin care routine will also be recommended.

Rosacea and redness

Facial redness is often caused by blood vessels that are dilated. Microdermabrasion can assist in reducing the appearance of facial redness by calming the skin.

 

Blackheads and whiteheads

Blackheads are the result of dead skin cells and oils collecting in the opening of your skin’s pores. They produce a slight bump called a comedone. If the skin opens and there is exposure to the air, this is what causes a blackhead. If the skin over the bump remains closed, it is called a whitehead.

Microdermabrasion works by removing dead skin cells, impurities, excessive oil and bacteria from the area, creating a refined skin surface.

 

Fine lines and Crows’ feet and wrinkles

The vacuum action of Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow and in turn creates plumping of the skin which is the increased collagen production and elastin. This can help fill those fine lines and wrinkles that have developed over the years.

Thick dry skin

Thick, coarse skin most often occurs in winter. Microhydrabrasion is the solution which will assist in removing the upper layers of the skin reducing skin thickness and dryness. The suction action will also promote lymphatic drainage and create a more refined look.

Enlarged, clogged or open pores

Everyone would like smaller pores. Microdermabrasion removes impurities and pollutants as well as dead skin cells from the skins pore, thus reducing its size and creating a more refined look.

Ingrown hairs

 

Microdermabrasion removes matter from the opening of the hair follicle which causes the hair follicle to bury itself. This is called folliculitis or more commonly ingrown hairs.

 

By removing the impurities which clog your skins pores. the mechanical and dissolving action of Microdermabrasion ensures ingrown hairs are not able to bury themselves.
