How To Love What’s Staring Back At You

MySkin Laser on 27 January 2016

The New Year means a fresh start and new resolutions to take better care of ourselves - inside and out.

And while not all resolutions are meant to be kept (were you really serious about giving up donuts?) we think taking better care of your skin is one resolution worth sticking to.

Feeling great about your skin makes you feel more confident, and with added confidence you’re more ready to tackle any challenge that 2016 brings your way.

But while drinking more water and eating more fruit and vegetables should be at the top of your resolutions list for fresh, dewy skin, we also know that every now and then we need a little outside assistance.

Makeup, sunscreen (which you should totally be wearing) and general city life take it’s toll on the look and feel of your skin. Sweat, oil and dirt can build up, leading to blackheads, blemishes and just a general dull look. Definitely not what you want to greet you when you first glance into the bathroom mirror of a morning.

A skin rejuvenation treatment is a fabulous way to get love-what’s-looking-back-at-you skin. And while we offer a variety of skin-tastic services at MySkin Laser Clinics, we think microhydrabrasion makes for a terrific shortcut to a brighter, fresher complexion.

What Is Microhydrabrasion?

Microhydrabrasion or microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and fast facial treatment for any skin type. It combines a two-step process to smooth and cleanse your skin for an instantly more luminous look.

A small vacuum is used to gently polish and remove the dead layer of skin from your face and neck. At the same time, you’re gently sprayed with an aloe vera and water solution to cleanse and cool your skin.

Unlike traditional microdermabrasion techniques that blast crystal particles directly onto your skin, MySkin Laser Clinics uses the Minivac MicroHydrabrasion which has a diamond tipped vacuum that’s moved directly across the skin, reducing irritation.

The result is softer, more radiant skin and a reduction in visible fine lines, sun damage and scarring. And with smoother skin, moisturiser will melt in and makeup will glide on oh-so-easily.

The beauty of microdermabrasion is that it also intensifies the results of other skin rejuvenation treatments. Serums will penetrate deeper, while the effects of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments will last longer.

How Does MicroHydrabrasion Work?

Your therapist will first gently remove any traces of makeup from your skin and then select the vacuum wand most suitable for your skin type. Moving the wand across your skin, your therapist will apply gentle pressure to remove the top layer of skin on your face and neck area while simultaneously cleansing and refreshing your skin with aloe vera and water. Your treatment takes only 30-45 minutes and you’ll see results instantly.

The gentle but effective nature of the Minivac system means there’s no downtime, but you will want to avoid makeup for a few hours afterwards and be sure to slather on sunscreen and cover up if you’re heading outside.

Of course, as with just about any skin procedure, your results will improve with a course of treatments. At MySkin Laser we suggest up to six treatments staged at two to four week intervals to reveal radiant skin you’ll love staring at in the mirror.
