The natural ageing process, combined with environmental factors like stress, smoking and sun exposure, can have a dramatic effect on our skin. While facial skin resurfacing has been around for centuries, microdermabrasion (as we know it today) was developed as a dermatological procedure in Italy in the mid-1980s to give skin back its beautiful natural glow, improve skin complexion, and reduce fine wrinkles. It is a non-invasive skin treatment which improves complexion, circulation and blood flow, stimulating collagen and elastin production. The best microdermabrasion therapy entails virtually no discomfort, downtime or recovery. The treatment is not painful, and because it has no healing time, there is almost no risk of infection. It is simple, safe and economical, and can be used as an alternative to or in conjunction with photo rejuvenation and chemical peels.
If you’ve tried other treatments for a stubborn skin condition and failed to see results, enquire today to arrange a consultation for microdermabrasion with Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic. Offered at our Melbourne CBD, Hawthorn, Viewbank and Mt Waverley clinics, the procedure uses fine aluminium oxide crystals of the highest purity, or a crystal-encrusted wand – in conjunction with suction – to exfoliate the dead outer skin layers, resulting in a smoother, fresher and younger-looking face.
Microdermabrasion is a quick, non-invasive, painless and low-cost beauty skin rejuvenation treatment used to exfoliate the skin by refining and smoothing the skin’s surface – while stimulating healthy reactions in the deeper layers of the dermis using micro-massage. There is no downtime, and the treatment can be done during a lunch break.
The best microdermabrasion can accomplish what no other non-surgical procedure can in terms of combating the signs of ageing and sun-damaged skin. We offer microdermabrasion in Melbourne CBD and other suburbs to treat:
Yes, unlike some invasive skin treatments, microdermabrasion is good for the skin. The treatment stimulates production of collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to healthier skin and an improved complexion.
If you’ve tried countless treatments for acne and you feel like you’re running out of options – and running out of money due to the cost of treatments – microdermabrasion may be able to help. It works to minimise acne by stripping dirt and oil out of pores without causing damage to the skin. This makes it an ideal acne facial treatment for those looking to control acne breakouts and minimise scarring.
The cost of microdermabrasion can vary depending on a range of factors, including the area being treated, the number of sessions required, and if there are any microdermabrasion specials currently being offered. The standard price per session for the face area is typically around $100.
In order to increase the effectiveness of treatment, there are certain things that should be avoided before a microdermabrasion session:
Our staff will provide you with a complete list of things to avoid when you make an appointment.
Yes, microdermabrasion is an ideal facial treatment for stimulating collagen. This helps to improve complexion and boost the health of the skin.
The benefits include:
The results can last up to one year, but results can last longer if the skin is taken care of well. Results may also vary depending on the individual and the specific skin concern being treated.
Yes it can be used to minimise the appearance of wrinkles. If you feel like you’ve tried every anti-wrinkle product available without seeing results, this treatment might be a suitable solution.
Yes, microdermabrasion is a good facial treatment for aging skin. This is because it naturally stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are both extremely beneficial for aging skin.
The number of treatments needed to see results can depend on the specific skin condition or concern being targeted. However, most patients typically begin to see results after 5 or 6 treatments, with skin appearing to be smoother and more radiant.
After your session, it is important to note that your skin may feel tight (as if exposed to the sun or wind) for the first 2 days. Some moderate skin peeling may occur. Deeper treatment for shallow scars or skin with moderate-to-heavy sun damage may appear slightly red, swollen or grazed for a few hours. This may last for a few days for patients with sensitive skin.
It is normal for the skin to be pink after the treatment, lasting up to a few hours. Mild exfoliation is common in the first few days of the early treatments, but is uncommon once the skin is in better condition. Where acne pustules and cysts have been treated the area may be red and a small scab may form, lasting for several days. Do not pick any scabs!
For best microdermabrasion results, it is necessary to have multiple treatments over a period of time. For general skin rejuvenation, approximately six treatments are required. Severe cases of acne or acne scarring may require more. Treatments are usually done every 2-3 weeks and take about 30-40 minutes. If you’re looking for a lower cost, we offer microdermabrasion specials for purchasing treatments in bulk.
