Medical Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical method of rejuvenation by means of mechanical skin exfoliation without the use of chemicals or lasers.
As with almost all treatments at IMD Laser Clinic, Microdermabrasion begins with a 1-on-1 consultation. After the consult we usually recommend starting with a minimum of three sessions which can progress up to an average of eight, depending on the type & state of pre-procedure skin.
Microdermabrasion is accomplished by a introducing a controlled closed system that resurfaces by directing a stream of Aluminum Oxide crystals over the skin's surface. This process creates a fine abrasion, which, when coupled with suction gently removes loose and dead skin cells and also empties out blocked pores in a manner similar to a vacuum cleaner. It works by stimulating the skin's healing process and increasing blood flow to the area.
This improved circulation brings oxygen and nutrients to refresh and regenerate your skin, triggering collagen formation and directing blood flow to the dermis.
After the procedure Extra Hydrating Masks, Moisturizer and Serums are applied. A collection of high quality European products are integrated with our treatments. Isabelle Lancray, Dr. Rimpler and Physician's Choice are a few well-known lines used here at IMD Laser Clinic.
The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes, depending upon the skin condition and the area to be treated.
The treatment is safe and effective for both men and women with all skin types. It is ideal for treating the following skin conditions:
The results are instant, and unlike chemical peels, Microdermabrasion usually does not require a preparation prior to treatment.
When treatment is completed, the skin has a red healthy glow due to the increased circulation. This usually settles down to a normal healthy look within a day or so.
Repeated treatments will result in a smoothing of skin surface irregularities such as lines, scarring, sun damage and acne.
