Microdermabrasion Park Ridge
Microdermabrasion encourages faster cell turnover which assists in unclogging and reducing the size of blocked pores, refines the skins surface providing a luminous glow and enables products to penetrate more deeply and effectively.
Wondering if this treatment right for you?
Microdermabrasion can be used to treat Men, Women and teens as young as 12. It can be safely performed on all skin colours and age is no barrier.
Although Microdermabrasion is most commonly used to treat the face, it is also highly effective on other body areas such as backs / shoulders to assist in regulating sebum flow, removing blackheads and congestion, and on the décolletage smoothing textural irregularities and aging concerns.
If you are currently using prescription medication for acne (Roaccutane™, Accutane™, Oratane™) it is best to wait at least 6 months after taking your last dose. This is due to the thinning effects these drugs can have on the skin all over the body.
What does it do?
Microdermabrasion is an advanced skin exfoliation treatment which uses a diamond crystal tipped vacuum tool to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, revealing smoother more luminous skin. This gentle form of resurfacing encourages micro-circulation which brings nutrients to the skins surface as well as speeding up cell renewal.
It is non-invasive and quite relaxing with some of our clients falling asleep during their treatment.
Microdermabrasion appeals to so many people because they see immediate benefits without any downtime plus it’s suitable for all skin colours.
Did you know that microdermabrasion can be performed on the back and shoulders to help congested skin in these areas and also on the backs of the hands.
What is it for?
- De-congesting and helping to unblock pores
- Refining the skins texture leaving it velvety smooth to the touch (a perfect start for makeup application)
- Stimulates the creation of collagen
- Increases cell turnover – you’ll notice the results for weeks after treatment.
When do I have this treatment?
Microdermabrasion is a wonderful treatment for sluggish and congested skin and a course of monthly treatments is suggested to achieve the best results if this is your concern.
It’s a great treatment to start with if you’re new to skincare as this will refine the skins surface to enhance product penetration which means the money you spend on your skincare regime is actually being absorbed and not just sitting on top before being washed off when you cleanse.
It can also be performed as a one-off treatment before a special occasion when your make up needs to go on flawlessly.
We believe that once you’re using the correct skin regime microdermabrasion treatments will be rarely required. We use and recommend products from the Environ (TM) range for use at home to enhance your in clinic treatments.
