Developed in the mid-1980s, microdermabrasion is a therapy that can treat unwanted changes and damages to the skin caused by ageing, stress, excessive sun exposure and various other natural and artificial factors. Most people face skin problems like age spots, dark spots, melasma, uneven skin layers, wrinkles, acne, scars, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation. While all of these skin problems can be treated with various cosmetic methods, products and treatments, getting long term freedom from these issues is not always possible without an advanced method of treatment like microdermabrasion therapy

Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation treatment performed with micro-massage technology that promotes the natural growth of collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for a naturally healthy skin. Microdermabrasion treatment is widely approved, effective and capable of restoring your skin to its natural state, while giving your skin an angelic look. This cutting-edge skin therapy can treat many issues like hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scarring, age spots, enlarged pores, blackheads, whiteheads & fine heads, congested skin, general skin rejuvenation, dead skin and various other skin related problems.
How Does it Work?
Once we determine the cause and required treatment for your skin issue, and whether you make for a suitable candidate, you will be given a list of instructions that you need to follow before the treatment. These instructions usually include not-to-dos like smoking, sun exposure, laser treatments, waxing and using exfoliating products. Our cosmetic doctors will go the extra mile to make you aware of every detail about the procedure and put your mind at ease if there are any doubts.
The actual procedure involves the use of a hand-held device to gently exfoliate the superficial layer of the skin, so as to promote the natural production of collagen and elastin to restore your skin’s natural glow. The pain levels are negligible and most people can resume work the very next day.
Our treatment doesn’t stop with the microdermabrasion procedure. You will also receive a list of instructions to follow once the procedure is completed, for you to enjoy the desired results and avoid any side effects.
Does it have any unavoidable side effects?
The minor side effects of microdermabrasion therapy are redness, swelling, burning sensation, hypersensitivity to sun and cold sores. All of these side effects are not too common and they go away on their own after a while. But as long as follow every post-care instruction given to you by the practitioner with care and commitment, you will be safe from any and all side effects.
