With new, seemingly wondrous skin rejuvenating products and treatments on the market everywhere you turn, sometimes it’s the tried and tested methods that are worth sticking with. If you’re seeking a provider of Microdermabrasion in Melbourne in order to experience a refreshed new appearance, make an appointment with Laser Skin Solutions today.
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, ‘lunch-hour’ procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells to reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.
The treatment also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance. Make an appointment for microdermabrasion when you need to treat or reduce the visible signs of:
- Fine facial lines or wrinkles
- Age spots and sun damage
- Mild and uneven pigmentation
- Clogged pores
- Skin texture problems
- Acne and other minor scarring
Microdermabrasion is a quick and non-invasive treatment that’s ideal for cleaning, refining and smoothing the skin’s surface. It also gives great results when combined with our other specialised treatments. Typically, microdermabrasion treatments in Laser Skin Solutions:
- Take less than one hour
- Leave you feeling comfortable with a slight tingling sensation
- Will present visible improvements that can be seen only after a few days, with dull and stressed looking skin appearing smoother and fresher
It is normal for the skin to be slightly red afterward with a slightly sunburnt sensation. This can last up to a few hours but is nothing to worry about. If you’re concerned about redness, it’s recommended that you schedule your treatment for a day when you have no other commitments.
Mild shedding of the skin is common in the first few days of early treatments. This is due to the outermost layer of dead and dry skin being stripped away to reveal younger, fresher skin beneath. We recommend that you avoid touching your face or peeling the skin during this time.
Red and small scabs may form where acne has been treated. This is nothing to be alarmed by – in fact, it can be a sign that the healing process is working as it should. However, it’s essential that you don’t pick any scabs during this healing period, as picking can lead to scarring.
Our skilled and experienced dermal clinicians will take you through everything you need to know before starting your first microdermabrasion treatment. We provide you with all the information you need beforehand so you’ll feel confident about how you can best prepare and care for your skin outside of the clinic.
