Microdermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive and quick treatment that gently & thoroughly removes dead skin cells through a dual option of Diamond Head technology. It promotes the production of new cells in the deepest layer of the dermis, cleans pores and aids in controlling breakouts. It also stimulates collagen networking to further even out skin texture and tone. Treatments can be performed within a lunch break and normal daily activities can be resumed immediately.
How long are the treatments?
Treatments usually take about 20 minutes for an express treatment and up to 1 hour for a deluxe treatment depending on the clients needs.
How many treatments are recommended for optimum results?
We recommend a course of 4 - 6 treatments performed weekly or fortnightly, depending on the skin condition, though the result after just one treatment is an immediate enhanced skin appearance. You will notice prolonged results and improvements in many areas such as the evenness and pore size reduction of the skin after a course of treatments.
Is Microdermabrasion safe?
Microdermabrasion is a very safe and gentle process because it only removes the outermost layer of the epidermal layer of the skin. There are very few risks to microdermabrasion, although changes in pigmentation (usually areas of increased pigmentation) are possible - usually in those with darker skin types.
What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion over other procedures?
Microdermabrasion takes less time to do, there is little discomfort and recovery time is relatively quick with no disruption to normal activities. Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types.
What areas of the body can be treated with microdermabrasion?
Treatments can be performed on the face, neck, décolletage, chest, back, arms and most areas of the body. At Central Coast Laser Clinic we believe that a combination of skin treatments is most effective and we can tailor a clinical skin regime for you with a combination of Microdermabrasion and some of our other skin treatments such as peels & Skin Rejuvenation.
What kind of results can I expect?
Usually you will notice an immediate improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance. Acne scars will become more refined depending on the number of treatments. Clients report that their skin looks softer, smoother and younger looking. It’s also a great treatment to have a day or two before a big event as your skin will glow and make-up applies a lot smoother and even on the skin.
