As we age, the automatic process of exfoliation and cell renewal slows down. Sometimes the body needs a little help. Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin ) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion.
The removal of the dead skin cells reveals the softer more youthful looking skin cells underneath.
The superficial abrasion of the skin also triggers the body’s own natural repair mechanism which triggers the production of new collagen and releases glycoaminoglycans in order to rehydrate and replenish the recently abraded area. This has a remarkable softening action on surface lines and wrinkles.
The procedure is not painful and requires no anesthetic. Microdermabrasion can be used medically for scar removal when the scar is raised above the surrounding skin, but is less effective with sunken scars.
Microdermabrasion can also be used to treat sun-damaged skin and to improve acne but must be repeated periodically to be effective.
This new exfoliation technology uses a hand piece with an abrasive tip that rotates at different speeds. A selection of single use, disposable abrasive treatment tips coated with a layer of silicon carbide are used to either superficially or deeply exfoliate the epidermis.
The hand piece also features the healing action of LED light therapy, which is used with orbital microdermabrasion.
BENEFITS AND EFFECTS OF THE TREATMENT
The orbital rotation of the abrasive head performs a progressive and controlled skin exfoliation, removing imperfections and impurities. By removing the superficial layers of skin, the complexion is left clearer, smoother, and more youthful looking. Results are visible just after one treatment!
