Medical Microdermabrasion

Medical Microdermabrasion

Medical microdermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive and quick treatment that gently & thoroughly removes dead skin cells through a dual option of organic crystal and Diamond Head technology. It 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long are the treatments?

Treatments usually take about 40 minutes depending on the patients needs. We also offer a Delux Microdermabrasion which takes one hour. You can decide after you have an informed consultation with one of our highly trained medical staff.

Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?

Anti-wrinkle injections have been used for medical purposes such as controlling muscle spasms in children with cerebral palsy for over 20 years; it has been used in the cosmetic industry for over 10 years without any reports of long-term side effects. Although the substance is derived from a bacterium, as are many of our other commonly used medicines, it is able to be used for treatment because it is applied in extremely small amounts and when applied properly does not spread outside the immediate muscles into which it is injected.

How many treatments are recommended for optimum results?

We recommend a course of 4 – 6 treatments performed weekly or fortnightly, depending on the skin condition, though 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.

Is Microdermabrasion safe?

Microdermabrasion is a very safe and gentle process because it only removes the outermost layer of the epidermal layer of the skin.
