WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENT
Microdermabrasion is an aesthetic procedure that renews the overall skin texture and tone. It is minimally invasive and it is performed with a special applicator that has an abrasive surface used for sanding away the outer layer of the skin in a gentle way. After the procedure, the skin is rejuvenated and improved.
There are different microdermabrasion techniques. In one of them, fine particles of sodium bicarbonate or aluminum oxide are sprayed on the skin and then suctioned away. This technique delivers similar results as the technique with the abrasive surface.
The procedure can address different skin issues like acne scars, wrinkles, sun and age spots and others.
At Lucia Clinic, patients can get Diamond-tip microdermabrasion.
This handheld device is specifically designed to exfoliate the skin dead cells in a gentle manner. These dead cells can be a residue of different cosmetic products, oil production or environmental pollutants. It also has a suction element that removes these dead cells right away.
The diamond-tip applicator moves in a raking motion and once the top layer of the dead skin cells is removed, the new and healthy layer of the skin is exposed.
The depth of the abrasion can be controlled with the applied pressure of the applicator and with the amount of time the suction is performed. This device is usually used on delicate areas of the face, such as the eyes.
The result of this treatment is glowing and healthy skin.
