Microdermabrasion is a gentle anti-aging technique. Microdermabrasion treatments specifically target the epidermal surface layer (stratum corneum), where dead cells cover those in the process of maturation. The epidermis also harbors small wrinkles and other minor skin imperfections.
Microdermabrasion treatments eliminate or disintegrate this surface layer and stimulate the regenerative capacities of the epidermis and restoration with new healthy skin cells, thus improving the texture and appearance of the skin in addition to increasing the penetration efficiency of the products used.
Microdermabrasion is recommended for:
- Damage due to sun exposure
- Pigment spots
- Wrinkles and small lines
- Dilated follicles
- Minor acne scars
- Minor stretch marks
- Keratinized, uneven and grainy skin
The device operates from the “Turbo Flow” projection system. A unique system, allowing to project a powerful jet of corundum crystals (ore) of high purity and pharmaceutical quality while simultaneously exerting a powerful suction to eliminate almost all the residues.
What are the effects on the skin?
After microdermabrasion, the skin is softer, smoother and more even. We notice that, with repeated sessions, fine lines are smoothed, and surface defects attenuated, skin pores tightened, because it releases the accumulation of sebum (oil) and helps to eliminate blackheads. It unifies tan, brightens the skin and makes it more radiant.
What should I do after the treatment?
The treatment does not require any convalescence, it may occur slight tingling, even a small sensitivity or redness a bit like a sunburn, but which will disappear in the following hours. The treated surface is more sensitive and delicate after treatment, you should therefore avoid exfoliators or irritating creams the following days. Do not expose the treated surface to the sun for a few days and, preferably, use a minimum sunscreen of 30 SPF.
Side effects are rather rare, since it is a gentle technique. It is normal in the days that follow, to observe a fine peeling; all you need to do is moisturize your skin. Several micro sessions are usually necessary to treat targeted problems, a cure of 6 to 12 treatments is recommended, it all depends on the condition of the skin surface. However, one treatment is enough to have a radiance boost.
