MICRODREMABRASION

a complete skin renewal process

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating non-invasive treatment used for a vast range of skin imperfections. This skin resurfacing technique exfoliates the topmost layers of the skin in order to expose newer, healthier layers of the skin. It is especially effective to combat skin aging.

 

The treatment triggers the skin’s repair mechanism to produce healthy epidermal tissue growth, improving the skin tone and elasticity. Each treatment leaves your skin feeling smooth, supple and refreshed.

 

Typical microdermabrasion treatments are performed using loose abrasives which often leave the skin layered with contaminated particles. In contrast to this method, Euro Charm Skincare & Body Clinic uses the revolutionary Diamond Peel™ Skin Resurfacing System which uses no loose abrasives to contaminate you or the environment.

 

Microdermabrasion is an ideal treatment for

 

  • Sun damage (face, neck, shoulders)

  • Age spots (hands, face)

  • Fine lines

  • Acne scarring and minor scars

  • Blackheads, whiteheads 

  • Hypo-pigmentation

  • Oily skin

FOR BEST RESULTS

 

Ideal treatment frequency for Microdermabrasion for photo-damaged skin, mild acne, wrinkled and aged skin is once per week for six weeks, or once per week for four weeks with the last two treatments spaced two weeks apart.

MICRODERMABRASION FAQ

What is Microdermabrasion?


Microdermabrasion is a quick, no downtime procedure that renews the skin by lifting dead cells off the surface of your skin by gently polishing it with crystals. With a series of microdermabrasion procedures you can quickly achieve substantial improvement in the appearance of superficial lines and uneven pigmentation, while making your skin look and feel softer, smoother, and more radiant. Acne scars and enlarged pores may become less noticeable, and acne breakouts may be reduced.




How does Diamond Peel ™ microdermabrasion work?


The Diamond Peel™ wand is a precision instrument that is gently swept over the skin. With each pass of the wand, the skin is vacuumed free of impurities and exfoliated with natural diamond chips ingeniously embedded in the head of the wand. The diamond wand coarseness and vacuum settings are adjusted according to your specific skin type and condition. Treatments vary from 4-10 sessions depending on your skin type and on the condition being treated.​




When should one start Microdermabrasion?


The skin is continually undergoing natural exfoliation. As one ages the epidermal cell turnover slows down and one's skin becomes dull because the topmost layer consisting of dead cells becomes too thick. This dead layer can clog and stress the skin causing whiteheads, blackheads, rough texture and uneven appearance of the skin tone. If one regularly exfoliates with microdermabrasion, new healthy skin cell are exposed to nutrients from the air, water and daily topical skin products. These nutrients are then transported to the deeper skin cells where they are needed, improving circulation, hydration and general skin nutrition. Potential benefits of exfoliation include fresher, brighter looking skin and better penetration of active ingredients of skin care products. It's been predicted that the need for invasive major facelifts will decline in the future because the current generation of health-savvy 20- , 30- and 40 - year-olds have all the preventative tools available to them such as microdermabrasion.




Who would benefit from a microdermabrasion procedure?


Many skin problems are associated with excessive build up of dead cells making the skin hardened and dull. Problems are elevated by exposure to the sun, pollution, and other environmental effects, leading to skin damage and disease. Mild exfoliation treatments like microdermabrasion are usually suitable for all skin types including those patients with acne or sensitive skin.

  • All skin types can be treated
  • All age groups even the very young can be treated
  • All areas of the body can be treated
Patients with hormonal pigmentation problems such as Melasma (although as a stand-alone treatment, microdermabrasion will not have very significant results, and will thus, for best results, have to be combined with other procedures). Individuals who have sunspots, sun-damaged skin, dry, ageing skin, oily skin with enlarged pores and acne scarring are also good candidates. Please note: The results of Microdermabrasion on scarring will depend on the depth and severity of the scarring. Severe scarring requires the inclusion of other treatments such as Mesotherapy and/or Laser.




What results can be expected after a course of Microdermabrasion treatments?


  • Fine lines and wrinkles become less apparent;
  • Skin tone evens out;
  • Texture becomes more refined;
  • Oily or acne prone skin is improved;
  • Enlarged pores appear smaller;
  • Superficial scars appear reduced;
  • Skin appears healthier and more youthful;
  • Pigmentation can be reduced in all skin types.




What can one expect after a microdermabrasion procedure?


Usually the skin is normal immediately after a mild microdermabrasion procedure and makeup may be applied after your session. Microdermabrasion may be repeated at two week intervals for a series of 5-6 treatments until the desired clinical effect is achieved. With each additional treatment, you should see incremental gains in the overall appearance of the skin. Your skin usually feels tighter and smoother. You need care for your skin by using a mild non-abrasive cleanser for five days as well as protecting it with sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as an active ingredient. Ask us about our favourite EltaMD! In addition, it is best to avoid prolonged sun exposure.
