Our faces tell so much about ourselves to other people. They show emotion, they indicate a certain level of health and wellness, and they can often be the launching pad for physical attraction. It’s no wonder that we do whatever we can to make our faces look as good as possible, as our faces can make or break our confidence. For people with skin conditions, confidence and self-consciousness can often be an issue that gets in the way of being able to enjoy life. Fortunately, there are treatment options available.

At the Laser Skin Clinic, we offer Microdermabrasion for Canberra locals looking for an affordable, non-surgical, no-down-time treatment that helps to improve your skin appearance – and ultimately, your self confidence.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion treatment uses a gentle vacuuming system with diamond tip technology to deeply exfoliate, removing dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin. The treatment increases lymphatic drainage and promotes cellular renewal as well as improved blood flow to the skin. In removing the top layer of dead skin cells, what was once dry and flaky, rough skin can look refreshed and rejuvenated!

A dermatologist will often prescribe Microdermabrasion for skin conditions that present themselves on the face, but it is also commonly used on the back, neck and hands. If your face is congested with whiteheads and/or blackheads, or your skin has rather large pores, Microdermabrasion treatment can be quite effective.

What Happens During a Microdermabrasion Treatment at the Laser Skin Clinic?

The first stage of Microdermabrasion is to thoroughly cleanse the face (or treated area). To obtain a very effective microdermabrasion treatment, we first apply an AHA/BHA peel on your skin and allow that to penetrate and work on your skin.

Your Microdermabrasion clinician will then systematically and slowly move the diamond tip over the skin multiple times. The diamond tip comes in contact with the skin, performing a gentle vacuum action. The diamond tip gently abrades the surface of the skin while at the same time the vacuum assists in the removal of the top dead skin layers.

After the treatment, your skin will feel very clean and smooth, and look bright and clear. Your skin may also appear slightly flushed for a short time.

Alternatives to Microdermabrasion

To remove the build up of dead skin cells, you could alternatively have a chemical peel. A chemical peel is applied to your skin to loosen the bonds holding the unwanted dead skin layers onto your skin.  When you cleanse your skin, the unwanted dead skin layers will be removed.
