If You Love Your Skin, Buy It Diamonds

If you’re like us, you’ll understand the deep satisfaction that comes with cleaning things; the superhuman power you feel when you rain down justice on dirt and muck.

If we could have one superpower, it’d be super-vacuum power. Which would explain why we’re so obsessed with microdermabrasion.

Considered to be a method of skin rejuvenation and exfoliation, microdermabrasion is actually so much more than that. What steam cleaning is to your carpets and professional cleaning is to your teeth, microdermabrasion is to your skin: the deepest clean you can get.

What Does Microdermabrasion Do?

While your skin may look and feel like a smooth surface, it isn’t. Think about it: your skin is filled with pores and follicles, constituting the skin’s deeper layers that aren’t so easily cleaned.

If your skin was flat, water and topical applications (such as your bottled cleansers and exfoliants) would be perfectly adequate to clean it. But since the dirt in pores sits below the surface layer of your skin, you need a deeper, more thorough method of exfoliation in order to give your skin a professional-grade clean.

This is where microdermabrasion comes in. At MySkin Laser Clinics, we use medical-grade MINIVAC microhydrabrasion machines to extract dirt, oil and dead skin from deep within the pores, leaving you with an immediate, lasting glow – and a complete lack of blemishes.

‘Even after one 20 minute session, the benefits of microdermabrasion are noticeable, making it the perfect treatment for busy people whose full schedules tend to leave their skin neglected.’

Two Phases of Skin Rejuvenation

Although we made a comparison earlier between microdermabrasion and teeth cleaning, this wasn’t entirely accurate – microdermabrasion is a lot less invasive (and a lot less painful!) than a trip to the dentist.

A microdermabrasion session – usually lasting around 35-40 minutes – will contain two separate phases of cleansing and exfoliation:

The first stage of microdermabrasion consists of running a gentle, diamond-tipped vacuum over the surface of your skin. The soft suction motion of this first stage will work to exfoliate your skin and to remove dead skin from deep within the pores.

Once the diamond-tip treatment is complete, our therapists will commence stage two: the cleaning phase. To finish your treatment, your skin will be cleansed with a combination of aloe vera and water, flushing out the pores and follicles of any remaining dirt and oils to ensure you are left with the cleanest skin ever.

What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?

When used regularly, microdermabrasion treatments have significant anti-ageing effects on your skin. As dead skin cells are removed from the surface of the skin, the growth of new skin cells and the generation of collagen is promoted, resulting in a radiant, youthful look that defies the passing of the years.

Microdermabrasion’s long list of benefits can be experienced regardless of age or skin type, and include:

  • Softening of fine lines and wrinkles;
  • The smoothening of coarse skin;
  • Eradicating acne and acne scarring;
  • Minimising the appearance of pores;
  • Reducing the appearance of age spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation;
  • Increasing the effectiveness of other topical skincare treatments;
  • Improving the appearance of dull, tired, stressed and sun-damaged skin.

A reduction of pimples, anti-ageing properties and a healthy, glowing complexion all achieved in under an hour? Honestly – what’s not to love about microdermabrasion?

Summary

Usually categorised as a skin rejuvenation and exfoliation treatment, microdermabrasion is the deepest clean you can give your skin.

Microdermabrasion sessions consist of two distinct phases:

  • An exfoliation phase which uses a diamond-tipped vacuum to remove dirt from deep within the pores, and;
  • cleansing phase which uses a combination of aloe vera and water to get your skin feeling fresh, cool and clean.

Even after one session under an hour, the benefits of microdermabrasion are noticeable, making it the perfect treatment for busy people whose full schedules tend to leave their skin neglected.

If used regularly, you will be able to benefit from the long list of advantages that microdermabrasion offers your skin, including significant anti-ageing effects.

For an immediate, healthy glow, there’s nothing better than microdermabrasion.
