Facial skin often shows signs of aging before other areas of the body, due to its sensitivity and constant exposure. This can lead to the development of wrinkles and pigmentation, as well sun damage.
In addition, it is common for dead skin to sit on the surface and settle in fine lines, which can make the complexion appear dull and tired.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that can help to restore a youthful appearance and encourage new skin cells to grow. Micro-particles and crystals are used on the outer layer of facial skin to remove any build-up of dead skin that is present. This helps to increase circulation and allow new skin cells to be revealed.
Microdermabrasion treatment can be enjoyed by men and women and help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation and sun damage.
Before the microdermabrasion procedure, patients will meet with a professional in one of Esteem cosmetic clinics placed in the Gold Coast and Brisbane. This will allow you to decide whether this treatment is right for you. The professional will exam the skin and discuss the procedure thoroughly, so patients can make an informed decision about microdermabrasion. A date and time for the first session can be arranged.
Several treatments are normally necessary to achieve a smoother and brighter complexion. It is generally recommended that patients have six treatments of microdermabrasion. This will be discussed during the consultation and the professional will advise how many sessions will be necessary for the individual patient to improve their skin.
The microdermabrasion procedure is described as a fast and pain-free skin treatment. One session normally lasts around 20 to 30 minutes. The top layer of the skin will be exfoliated with a machine to reveal newer and healthier skin.
Patients can experience a slight tingling of the skin when they are being treated, but this is often described as gentle.
There is no significant downtime associated with this treatment. Since microdermabrasion encourages new skin cells, patients can experience some redness after the treatment. But, this will calm down on its own 24 hours after the procedure. In addition, some skin shedding is common and should not be alarming for the patient.
You are free to leave the clinic as soon as you are ready and return to your daily routine immediately after treatment.
The results of microdermabrasion can be seen after a few days of receiving treatment. Many patients have been happy with their facial appearance after microdermabrasion. This includes experiencing a brighter and smoother complexion, with a youthful glow.
Of course, it is important to remember that results from microdermabrasion are individual. Just as every patient’s reasons for receiving this treatment will vary, so with their results.
In addition, the number of treatment sessions that a patient will need will depend on their own skin. You will be able to gain an idea of expected results from a consultation with a professional, as well as how many treatment sessions you will need.
