Here at Snowberry Lane Clinic we strive to lead the way in providing the most highly advanced cosmetic treatments for our patients. One area we work particularly hard to fulfill this promise in is the unique area of the non-invasive treatments. For over a decade now, our clinic has been at the forefront when it comes to giving our patients the chance to make positive improvements in their lives without minimised risks and downtime.
In today’s blog we’ll be highlighting a very special non-invasive treatment that we use on patients who would love to have smoother skin but dread the idea of going through a process that could be deemed as painful. We’ll be looking at microdermabrasion, how it works and what results patients can expect to achieve.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a skin softening procedure that uses microcrystals to improve the appearance, texture and feel of the skin. It is commonly used on the face, an area which itself has softer skin than other areas of the body. The crystals aim to rejuvenate the top layer of skin on the face, and in turn promote the natural growth of collagen underneath the surface.
How does it work?
Unlike traditional facial scrubs we try at home or at a salon, which only work to remove dirt from the very top of our skin, microdermabrasion is a thorough and much more intense way of cleaning out our pores. Imagine rubbing a wipe over the face. We know that it removes makeup and dirt from the surface layer, but it doesn’t do much to really get in our pores and ensure they’re naturally clean and healthy.
Passing medical grade crystals over the pores allows for uniform cleansing and targeting of problem areas. A natural encouragement of new skin cell growth is always our main aim when performing this treatment. A gentle abrasion of the upper surface gets the body to react naturally and safely. Patients with minor acne and blackheads around the upper forehead and sides of the nose can benefit greatly from this treatment.
What are the results?
We commonly find that patients with fine lines and blemishes benefit most from microdermabrasion, sometimes noticing visible results from the first treatment session. Because we’re not doing any harm to the skin, downtime is minimised.
