Microdermabrasion

What is a microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest, safest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. It has many benefits! Microderm softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of shallow scars, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots. Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech serums and skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.

That helps build collagen, which gives skin its plump, youthful appearance. 

How does it work?

Microdermabrasion is essentially mechanical exfoliation that takes place with the help of a machine. The outermost layer of dead skin cells is removed from the face, chest, and hands by physical means - not a chemical peel.
The newer diamond-tip microdermabrasion has been growing in popularity because it achieves the same results with less discomfort and without the crystal residue at the end of the treatment. Suction in the middle of the wand pulls the dead skin cells off the face. Because there are no loose crystals, you don't have to wear plastic eye covers. 

Although one treatment can give instant results to truly achieve the best results a course of treatments 7-14 days apart then return for maintenance every 4-8 weeks is recommended.

Contraindications

 Major contraindications - Do not proceed

Pregnancy An increase in hormones can affect the skin during pregnancy, this can cause pigmentation. For this reason we advise against microdermabrasion as the skin could react in an unexpected manner making the condition worse. Advise clients to use a good sunscreen when outside to help prevent the pigmentation occurring. 

Cancer We advise that you do not treat a client with Cancer, they should be in remission for at least 6 months prior to commencing a course of treatment. Microdermabrasion stimulates the blood flow and lymphatic drainage. 

Grade 4 Acne Clients with this level of acne should not be treated with microdermabrasion. If the skin is very congested with pustules and papules treatment would irritate the skin and spread bacteria. 

“Roaccutane” Roaccutane causes thinning of the skin, if your client is receiving Roaccutane treatment for acne, you must wait 6 months after discontinuing Roaccutane before performing microdermabrasion treatment. 

Auto-immune disease Used to describe a number of disorders where the body attacks its own cells and tissues, you should avoid treating a client suffering from an auto-immune disease.
