What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a low-risk, non-invasive skin exfoliating treatment that uses a combination of fine abrasive tips and vacuum suction to treat and improve surface-level skin conditions.
WHY GET MICRODERMABRASION?
As microdermabrasion targets the outer layer of one’s skin, it is most effective to treat minimal skin conditions that appear on this layer. This includes discolouration, sun damage, stretch marks and light scarring. Other areas that microdermabrasion can target are age or sun spots, blackheads and enlarged pores.
The improvement of skin texture and the exfoliation of skin are the most common benefits of microdermabrasion.
- Reduce Viable Signs of Ageing
- Minimized Fine Lines
- Rejuvenate and Tighten Skin
- Faded Scars
- Shrunken Pores
- Diminished Wrinkles
PREPARATION FOR MICRODERMABRASION
We ask you to come to your apportionment with a bare face, free of makeup and heavy skincare.
POST-TREATMENT FOR MICRODERMABRASION
Immediately following your microdermabrasion treatment your skin should feel softer and smoother.
Side Effects of Microdermabrasion?
Depending on your skin type minor bruising, redness, and skin sensitivity are possible side effects.
OTHER POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDE:
- Skin Tightness
- Skin Swelling
- Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
- Spots of Bleeding
- Skin Abrasions
MICRODERMABRASION AT RENEW
Before deciding on microdermabrasion, we recommend that you consult with one of our trained medical aestheticians so we can discuss a proper treatment plan for your skin. As our skin takes about 30 days to rejuvenate, we recommend that you continue microdermabrasion treatments on an average interval of two to four weeks to ensure lasting results and skin improvement.
WHO SHOULD NOT GET MICRODERMABRASION?
Those who have taken or are currently on the acne medication isotretinoin in the past 6 months may be susceptible to additional and or increased scarring from microdermabrasion. As a result, we here at Renew recommend that you consult with your doctor and our staff so that we can determine the right treatment for you and your skin.
