A gentle and effective exfoliation treatment.
Microdermabrasion is a lunchtime procedure with no downtime. The skin not only feels great, but the process also creates a skin surface that is clear, youthful, and glowing. Microdermabrasion is also used to prepare the skin before other combination treatments such as Power Peels, Laser Peels, and Photo Dynamic Therapy.
Microdermabrasion involves specifically targeting very small areas at a time (micro) of the surface of the skin (derma) to mechanically strip away and remove dead skin cells and debris (abrasion).
The 3 main methods used for Microdermabrasion are by delivering refined crystals at high velocity (Crystal abrasion), through use of a diamond tip (Diamond abrasion) or through the use of water dispersion technology (Hydrabrasion).
At Collins Cosmetic we use the CLAIRDERM system which is an Australian made medical strength Microdermabrasion system that has the trio of Crystal, Diamond and Hydrabrasion options. Each of these microdermabrasion methods can be used separately or in a combination protocol.
Removing (exfoliating) dead skin cells and surface debris not only cleans the skin and opens up pores but the process also promotes the generation of new skin cells.
Microdermabrasion is a painless, non-invasive affordable treatment that has no downtime. In the one treatment the skin can be refined, hydrated and rejuvenated.
Microdermabrasion can improve:
A single Microdermabrasion treatment costs $165.
It depends on what the goal is but to maintain skin health a regular Microdermabrasion every 4-6 weeks is very popular for many patients.
Microdermabrasion is one of the commonest combination procedures as it can help clean and prepare the skin to make other treatments more effective such as Photodynamic therapy and can also be used in conjunction with other treatments such as Peels (the so called Power Peel).
No specific preparation is needed but any makeup or sunscreen will need to be removed.
There is no downtime and immediate activity can be resumed. Makeup and/or sunscreen can be applied immediately after treatment.
