Who gets the most out of laser microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment that leaves your skin smoother in both texture and tone. Microdermabrasion can be used as a stand-alone treatment for a skin condition (such as acne) or in conjunction with other skin-beautifying procedures. Microdermabrasion works best on skin that could use a boost, but it’s not suitable for everyone so call to speak to a dermatologist at our Melbourne clinic if you aren’t sure.
How is microdermabrasion performed?
Microdermabrasion is performed by first cleansing the skin to prepare for the treatment. We have a range of handpieces for different skin types and treatments, so your dermatologist will find the handpiece that matches your skin type, which is then applied to work to remove the uppermost layer of skin cells. This leaves your skin looking and feeling refreshed and healthy.
How long do microdermabrasion treatments take?
Each session can take between half an hour and an hour, depending on how much surface area needs treatment, and to what depth. You can make your bookings on your lunch break.
How impressive are the results of microdermabrasion?
You will have smoother skin after microdermabrasion treatments, with improvements in texture and often colour and tone.
What downtime can I expect from microdermabrasion treatments?
At our Melbourne clinic, there is no downtime from microdermabrasion treatments. Walk in and walk out, and return to your day glowing.
Will my face be red after microdermabrasion?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect some slight redness, but this is due to an increase in circulation to the outer layers of skin, not due to irritation. This will quickly fade away as you continue your day.
Should I use microdermabrasion with other facial treatments?
You can, but it works just as well as a stand-alone treatment, however microdermabrasion complements other facial treatments such as dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections. You can use microdermabrasion alongside chemical peels, hair removal, and other laser treatments.
How much does microdermabrasion cost?
Microdermabrasion cost depends on the extent of your treatments. Everyone must have a consultation prior to any dermatological skin treatments, at which time your dermatologist will be able to provide you an accurate figure of what you can expect to pay for your skin treatments. We pride ourselves on being thorough and providing only the treatments your skin will respond well to, but to do this, we must analyse your skin and needs to make your one-off or ongoing skin care treatment plan.
Does microdermabrasion hurt?
Microdermabrasion does not hurt, and you will remain comfortable throughout your treatments.
Is laser microdermabrasion different to diamond-tipped microdermabrasion?
Laser microdermabrasion doesn’t actually ‘touch’ your skin, whereas regular microdermabrasion physically ‘sandpapers’ your skin off. We prefer the laser, as it is far less irritating to the skin, recovery is almost instant, and results are excellent.
