Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment technique that resurfaces the skin to make it smooth and even. In some clinics, such procedure is sometimes termed as ‘Lunchtime Peel’, ‘Euro Peel’ or ‘Power Peel.
In this procedure, only the top-most layer of the skin is removed through a process called ‘sand blasting’. A handheld device similar to a dentist’s polishing instrument is used to release ultra-tiny crystals onto the skin allowing dry damaged skin to be exfoliated. While microdermabrasion is best performed on the face and neck area, it is can also be applied to other body parts such as the back and hands.
Microdermabrasion in Melbourne VIC is a non-surgical in nature and takes just a short time to complete. It is safe and effective to various skin types and skin tones. It corrects problems such as age spots, uneven pigmentation, some types of scarring and rough skin texture. Microdermabrasion also removes whiteheads and blackheads and improves wrinkles and stretch marks. Since the first layer of skin is exfoliated, new cells regenerate allowing new skin to form. It can be done repeatedly as often as once a week for best results.
Before microdermabrasion is carried out, a few important steps need to be done. First you will have to arrange a consultation with the doctor for a complete evaluation of your medical history. In here, the following factors are discussed, procedure, costing, limitations, risks and aftercare. Once all these are done, then you are scheduled for the procedure. You will also be given the option to take before-and-after photos for the purpose of comparison.
Span of Treatment
Microdermabrasion is generally quick and simple and lasts from 15 to 30 minutes only. Once complete treatment takes four to eight sessions with an interval period of one to three weeks. You get the best results after the entire regimen, therefore, ensure to comply with doctor’s advice.
When it comes to pain, this variable actually depends from person to person. Some patients report no pain at all while others report about some mild irritation. Generally, it is just a tingling sensation that is felt and no other major complaint. Hence, anesthesia is not necessary.
Recovery after the procedure is fast-paced. It is for this reason why microdermabrasion is also called as ‘Lunch Time Peel’. Microdermabrasion is as quick as fitting the procedure into an hour-long lunch break. Once it’s done, you can apply makeup immediately and get back to your normal activities. Take note that your skin will turn pink after the procedure but will eventually fade in a few hours.
Lastly, you have to be in good physical health before undergoing microdermabrasion. Refrain from smoking and drinking prior to entering the clinic to ensure more effective results. Being compliant means you can achieve a smooth and younger-looking skin.
