MECHANICAL MICRODERMABRASION (MDA)
Skin continually undergoes natural exfoliation. As one ages the cell turnover slows down and skin becomes dull due to the accumulation of dead, dry epidermal cells. This thick hard layer distresses the skin causing whiteheads, blackheads, and uneven skin tone and texture.
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure used to rejuvenate the skin by lifting dead cells off the surface. It is also referred to as mechanical exfoliation or micro-resurfacing.
When the skin surface is disturbed, it increases the cells metabolism and stimulates the production of collagen thus improving the condition of the skin.
Fresh healthy skin is exposed to nutrients and allows for better penetration of active ingredients of skin care products.
One can expect a rapid and significant improvements in:
- Superficial lines/ Wrinkles
- Acne Scars,
- Age and Sun Spots,
- Blackheads, Whiteheads and Enlarged Pores
- Uneven Pigmentation or Skin Tone,
How often and how long is the course of treatment?
The duration of treatment usually depends on the skin type. However, the whole process takes barely 15 minutes to be completed.
For optimal results, Mechanical Microdermabrasion may be repeated at two week intervals for a series of 6 - 10 treatments until the desired clinical effect is achieved.
This treatment is not recommended for those with an active acne breakout.
