Ultrasonic Diamond Micro Dermabrasion
Ultrasonic Diamond Micro Dermabrasion is recognised as one of the most effective non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments available for the face and neck. The results are instantly noticeable and benefits the skin with a multi-faceted action that removes dead skin to reveal a smoother more even complexion whilst stimulating the blood circulation to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
The Reveal Beauty Clinic has invested in a state of the art Ultrasonic Diamond Microdermabrasion unit that offers the additional benefit of a dual rejuvenation program. Utilising ultrasound to stimulate collagen production, Vitamin E rich cream is forced deep into the epidermis at the same time. This unique action enhances the treatment and offers a semi-permanent result which is visually noticeable.
Many people comment after treatment at the dramatic improvement to the feel of their skin as well as the radiance of their complexion.
Diamond Microdermabrasion is also effective on hands, elbows, backs and shoulders it is used in the treatment of open pores, uneven or dry skin, acne scars, white heads and dry patches on knees and elbows.
What is Microdermabrasion?
It is a quick, safe, effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and tones and no pain or discomfort. It uses a diamond-tipped applicator with a slight suction to remove dead or damaged skin cells.
Who can benefit from Microdermabrasion?
Everyone - men and women of any skin type or tone. Skin that is ageing, congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull and sun damaged can be rejuvenated and refreshed. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture can also be improved. Even normal skin can be made to look fresher with a warm glow.
Why does the skin benefit from Microdermabrasion?
Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface and unless removed they can cause enlarged and clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, and a dull appearance. As we age the renewal process slows down and often leads to the appearance of older less radiant skin. Microdermabrasion removes the dead skin cells leaving your skin softer, smoother, brighter, cleaner, refresher and younger looking.
How many treatments do you need?
This treatment is meant to be progressive not aggressive. Generally results are more noticeable after the first session, the skin will appear fresher, cleaner, smoother and softer. Usually treatments are performed every 7-10 days for the first 3 treatments and thereafter monthly. A typical course of treatment is a series of six Microdermabrasion sessions.
What happens during a Microdermabrasion Consultation?
Your initial consultation is free. During your visit the therapist will discuss any condition that you may have that could interrupt or complicate the treatment. The expected benefits of Microdermabrasion will be explained as well as the overall process (any question you may have will be answered). You will be asked a series of questions to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and to determine your skin type and sensitivity.
After your free consultation the available packages will be discussed with you and pricing information confirmed.
How the treatment is carried out
The therapist will cleanse your face. It is not necessary to remove mascara, lip stick or lip liner. A thin layer of ultrasound gel is applied which helps the machine guild smoothly over the skin to ensure the sound waves are effectively conducted. The ultrasound wave machine helps increase blood supply, stimulates the nerves and softens the tissue boasting collagen.
The therapist will place a freshly sterilized diamond tip onto the hand piece of the microdermabrasion machine. The machine is then turned on and its setting adjusted for your skin type.
The therapist moves the small handheld unit over your skin in short sweeping motions. This is done in up to 4 directions on each part of the area treated. You may feel a gentle suction on your skin and a slight gritty feeling as the diamond tip removes a thin layer of dead skin cells. There is no bleeding, pain, needles or cutting with this procedure. This part of the treatment makes up the main body of the treatment.
A soothing enriched vitamin E cream is then applied onto the area to help calm any redness and to hydrate the skin. The ultra sound machine is then passed over the area pushing the cream further into the skin with a warming sensation plumping the skin.
Ultrasonic Diamond Microdermabrasion can provide dramatic results after just one treatment, but the best results are achieved when a series of treatments are performed.
You will be provided with after-care instructions and the therapist will recommend specific products to take care of your skin after the treatment.
What other techniques can be used to make Microdermabrasion even more effective?
Microdermabrasion can be combined with a new treatment called APL (Accumulative Pulsed Light) - also known as Fotofacials. APL treats broken blood vessels, red skin tones, brown freckling, shrinks pores, improves sun damage and increases collagen in the skin. All of these lead to smoother, younger looking skin and reduced redness at the same time. To learn more about APL please speak to your Therapist - This is a remarkably effective treatment when used in conjunctions with APL/laser skin rejuvenation.
How long does it take?
The actual treatment usually takes 30-40 minutes.
But appointment times are 45 minutes allowing for a full consultation.
