Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion has become a widely well know treatment in Melbourne. It is a technique used to lightly exfoliate the skin, boost collagen and elastin production and to assist in reducing the appearance of scarring, acne and pigmentation. It is often combined with other intensive treatments, to create a further effective result.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that is suitable for almost any skin condition. It has little to no downtime and gives the skin a beautiful smooth, glowing complexion. Microdermabrasion can effectively treat Acne/ acne scarring, blackheads/ congestion, general skin rejuvenation, age spots/ pigmentation, excess dead skin build-up, fine lines/ wrinkles, and enlarged pores.

Who is microdermabrasion suitable for?

It is not only a great option for clients who are concerned with aging skin, but also for those who suffer from acne, congestion, scarring and the overall maintenance of the skin.

What is microdermabrasion?

At SKIIN, Microdermabrasion is a unique treatment that uses a diamond tipped vacuum to mechanically remove excess dead skin cells, debris and overall congestion from the skin via suction. The suction encourages blood flow to the skin which can promote healing. Additionally, it aims to boost your collagen and elastin production and helps restore lost elasticity that occurs as we age naturally.

How many treatments are required?

Generally speaking, it is recommended to have between 4-6 treatments of microdermabrasion to achieve longer lasting results, though this does vary based on the client’s individual concern.

Our Dermal Clinicians always suggest coming in for a consultation prior to starting with any skin treatments to ensure it is tailored to you specifically.

How long will it take to see results?
