In 2009, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported there were 910,168 microdermabrasion procedures done in the US alone (176,541 of those men). As a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation, microder
mabrasion is quick, convenient and painless, immediately restoring younger, smoother looking skin without the need for chemicals, lasers or Botox. Microdermabrasion can also be used as a preventative measure for aging skin and the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. "Prevention is key!". The huge number of benefits is what makes microdermabrasion such a popular treatment. Microdermabrasion can be used on all skin types, even sensitive skin. Many people choose microdermabrasion over chemical peels and laser treatment because it is generally safer and more cost-effective.
What is Microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion treatment uses a diamond head device or a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove your skin’s outermost layers of dead cells. Your therapist will use the handset to direct the device over the treatment area and targeting specific zones. The handset uses mild suction to draw away dead skin debris and reveals your new and improved complexion.
The skin’s appearance is further improved through increased collagen & elastin production as your body produces a new layer of skin.
A series of 6–10 treatments is usually recommended for optimum results, taking 2 weeks in between for skin to recover. The entire procedure usually takes about 30 minutes for the face, longer if you want your neck and other body parts such as hands and feet done.
Skin will be more sensitive to sunlight afterwards so stay out of the sun or use a good sunscreen. Always go to a qualified aesthetician for microdermabrasion and ask them about their training, as the results you get will largely depend on their expertise. Once you’ve had microdermabrasion it’s important to look after your refreshed skin with nourishing skin care products.

• Microdermabrasion has been shown to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, shallow acne scars, though results may vary from person to person.
• Those who suffer from enlarged pores will be pleased to know microdermabrasion can help minimise pores and is great for unclogging them.
• Removing dead skin through microdermabrasion can aid in the penetration of skincare products by up to 50% and with a more even surface to work with, it allows makeup to go on more smoothly.
• Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow, which increases the nutrition delivered to skin cells. This improves cell production, which improves skin’s elasticity and texture.
The best results are usually seen by people in the early stages of aging, between 25 and 50. "Prevention is key!" It’s not recommended if you have skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, active sunburn, herpes, lupus, open sores, psoriasis, fragile capillaries or widespread acne. Seek medical advice first. While home dermabrasion kits are available, they act more like a scrub and can be quite harsh. Beware!
