What is Microdermabrasion?

Perth microdermabrasion is a non-invasive mechanical exfoliation of the skin. At Pure Aesthetic Skin & Body we use a crystal free microdermabrasion system. Using a diamond-tipped hand piece that incorporates vacuum suction for lymphatic drainage. This unique treatment works to remove dead skin and debris, while stimulating collagen production to restore elasticity. It leaves skin smoother, brighter and firmer, with immediate results and little or no downtime.

Microdermabrasion involves mechanically exfoliating the outermost layer of dead skin cells. The skin is gently abraded with a diamond tipped hand piece which incorporates a gentle suction for lymphatic drainage which helps stimulates circulation.  Microdermabrasion helps to stimulate the production of collagen as well as aid in the turnover of new skin cells.

Generally, softer and smoother skin that feels fresher and more rejuvenated is the expected outcome after microdermabrasion. 

Mild pinkness of the skin is the desired outcome and usually resolves within a couple of hours after microdermabrasion treatment. Use of a high quality sunscreen is recommended as photosensitivity may be increased after the treatment. Potential side effects of microdermabrasion are minimal as this is a very safe procedure. Temporary side effects include slight skin tightness, redness, mild bruising, and skin sensitivity.

At Pure Aesthetic we recommend having your Microdermabrasion treatment done every 4 weeks. Your Therapist will help you decide on an appropriate treatment plan.
