The Dermaglide ALL NATURAL microdermabrasion system exfoliates and resurfaces the skin promoting flawless, smooth, beautiful skin texture. This all natural anti-aging skin rejuvenation procedure promotes collagen production, improves skin elasticity and diminishes wrinkles.
Dermaglide organic microdermabrasion is a comprehensive approach to skin care that is non-surgical, safe and effective. Unlike cosmetic surgery and other invasive skin enhancing treatments, which cost thousands of dollars, microdermabrasion is just a fraction of the cost.
Microdermabrasion can improve or eliminate superficial skin problems. Over time, factors such as aging, sun damage, acne, scarring, and enlarged pores can contribute to a rough skin texture and the formation of facial wrinkles. This all natural skin rejuvenation procedure stimulates production of a new layer of skin cells that contain higher levels of collagen and elastin.
Microdermabrasion treatments are often referred to as the “lunchtime facial” because they can be completed in as little as thirty minutes. Because microdermabrasion is non-invasive it has a low risk of complications and is one of the safest skin rejuvenation procedures available. The treatment is virtually painless and there are no side effects.
Most commonly used to treat the face and neck; microdermabrasion can successfully reduce the appearance of superficial wrinkles and scars, large pores, acne, and age spots, restoring a smoother more youthful appearance.
The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, acts as the skin’s primary defense against the environment and sustains the most damage from the sun. The effects of sun damage are what cause the skin to have a rough appearance. Beneath the epidermis lies the dermis, or innermost layer of the skin, which provides structure and support.
The dermis is comprised primarily of connective tissue, which is made mostly of collagen and elastin fibers. These fibers form a network that provides the skin with structure, support, and elasticity. Over time, the aging process and sun damage cause a decrease in the amount of collagen and elastin fibers. As this network of fibers breaks down, the skin loses its elasticity and becomes more lax. Together, aging, sun damage, genetics and other factors contribute to wrinkle formation and other changes in appearance.
Microdermabrasion is also referred to as a “Power Peel” and works by spraying a stream of inert micro-crystals across the skin that creates an abrasive action. These crystals also have disinfecting and drying properties and help to clean the skin of infected lesions such as acne. The dead skin cells are lifted from the surface by this abrasion and are then whisked away by vacuum suction and new skin growth is subsequently stimulated.
Microdermabrasion can produce a range of peels from light to very deep treatments and allows the esthetician to perform a controlled deeper treatment. Because we can see and control the depth of the peeling, we can assess the depth of the needed treatment and so produce efficient faster and safer results.
It is a great alternative to the traditional surgical Dermabrasion, which is more aggressive, painful and requires time off work for healing. In contrast, “power peeling” is relatively painless, requires no time loss for healing (you can go back to work the same day), its action is controlled, rare complications, it is economical and produces exceptional results that are in between chemical peeling and laser surgical procedures.
Some results are noticeable almost immediately and there is further progressive improvement over the 2 to 3 weeks following each additional treatment.
Separate from the surface abrasive action the microdermabrasion also causes intense stimulation of the full depth of the skin layers, bringing about substantial responses in the Dermis. Results include: improved blood supply and lymph drainage to improve the health and vitality of the skin, as well as substantially increased Collagen and Elastin formation to firm and plump the skin. In the Epidermis, an increased rate of new cell reproduction eliminates the older damaged skin cells from the surface. This results in healthier, glowing skin with better tone and support.
In most instances a range of multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the best results. The number required is dependent upon the condition of the patient’s skin.
At our medical spa the microdermabrasion unit we use is a professional medical unit that can give a deeper, safer, and more comprehensive treatment than most salon units available. This unit has been in use in medical spa’s for years, it is fully sterilisable and because of its safety has received clearance by both the FDA in the strict USA market and the TGA here in Australia . It is used by doctors and trained medical personnel and you can be assured of the safety and effectiveness of the treatments offered. Side effects are very rare.
A consultation is required in order to detect any skin or medical conditions that may influence the safe use of the procedures and to fully assess your skin condition. The esthetician will then decide on the appropriate course of treatment for you to ensure the best possible results.
