There are many skin treatments and cosmetic procedures that promise the best skin you can have. With so many options available, it can get confusing to figure out which treatments are right for you and your skin type. So, we’re putting together some quick facts that will help you know more about microdermabrasion in Melbourne, for all those who are keen to know more.
Microdermabrasion has a long history…
Microdermabrasion, in its earlier forms, has existed for over a century in more rudimentary forms. The modern procedure that we know today was developed in 1985 in Italy. So high was its popularity that it became a dermatological rage the world over in just a few years, as a miracle glow treatment!
Microdermabrasion, put simply, is a non-invasive procedure that uses a wand with tiny crystals to gently exfoliate the top layer of the skin. When this is done, the skin perceives it as an injury to be repaired, and replaces the lost skin cells with healthy new cells. This also triggers collagen and elastin production, which gives the skin a youthful radiance and firmness. Apart from refining and smoothening the skin surface, it is wonderful at bringing out the innate natural glow of the skin.
This one treatment can combat a host of skin concerns!
There are few other treatments, including non-surgical ones which treat so many conditions as effectively. This is because microdermabrasion is suitable for most skin types. Here are some of the common issues that can be effectively treated with this procedure:
- Age Spots
- Acne & Acne Scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Dull, lifeless skin
- Sun damage
- Blackheads, whiteheads and fine heads
- Excessive sebum production
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines & wrinkles
What does this procedure feel like?
The thought of having your skin abraded by rough crystals might not sound like a pleasant experience, but we can assure you that this treatment is almost painless. At Victorian Laser & Cosmetic Clinic, we use a crystal wand tipped with the purest aluminium oxide crystals in our treatment. This not only exfoliates, but also uses gentle suction to vacuum loose dead cells away. You will feel a mild scrubbing sensation as the wand moves over your skin.
It is no wonder that microdermabrasion is perceived as a wonder treatment for long term skin clarity and radiance. What makes this even better is the fact that it is a lot more economical as compared to other treatments, and is completely safe and free from chemicals. It is what most of our clients turn to after trying other treatments for stubborn skin conditions, which have not been effective. OR in other words, it is the go-to treatment when all else fails! This is because microdermabrasion stimulates our natural repair and regeneration process, to reveal fresh, healthy new skin underneath.
