Microdermabrasion Gold Coast

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment that takes away the outer layer of skin on the face to encourage a new layer to form. It utilises a superficial depth of of removal so the pain tolerance is very minimal.

Depending on skin concerns usually multiple treatments are recommended to see significant improvements. It can be done as frequently as weekly or up to 4-8 weeks and is a safe for most skin types.

How does microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, gentle exfoliating treatment that removes layers of dead and damaged skin, revealing a smoother, fresher complexion. Performed by a hand-held wand that features an exfoliating diamond tip, the wand is passed over the skin 2-3 times (depending on the thickness of a patient’s skin), drawing in air which creates a vacuum when the wand touches the skin. As the exfoliating tip of the wand passes across the skin’s surface, it picks up dead surface skin cells along the way, unclogging pores, removing dry skin, increasing circulation, aiding with lymphatic flow, and refining the skin’s texture.

Amazing customer service. I had the IPL treatment and my skin has improved in both skin tone and redness. I will definitely be booking more treatments in the future. I highly recommend. Thank you!

I'm impressed with the experience and results I've had. I had really bad eczema which my doctor prescribed steroids I could only use once month besides that I've tried many products no improvements. So I decided to visit this clinic to try a led light therapy session. The first session I could already notice the redness, inflammation, itchiness had improved massively. I'm very impressed with the results I've achieved visiting this clinic. Overall high valueable experience. Definitely coming back for more treatments.

I initially booked with Marzia from a Groupon voucher for SHR. From my first session I was made to feel at easy and Marzia was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any and all of my questions, this was a massive difference from another salon I had previously had SHR at. I ended up prebooking 2 more full leg sessions which I just had my second session today. I 100% recommend Marzia for anyone wishing to have hair free silky skin.

Before and During Treatment

How to Prepare for Microdermabrasion Treatment?

There is little to no preparation required.

In the week before your session, you should take steps to avoid sunburns by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen during periods of sun exposure. You should also avoid harsh skincare products or other cosmetic procedures that make your skin more sensitive.

On the day of your microdermabrasion session, your skin should be product-free. You can apply makeup after the session.

During Treatment

During the treatment, you will feel slight pressure and a prickling sensation as the device moves across the treatment area. Treatment is fast, so any discomfort is short-lived and tolerable. Warmth and slight tingling are normal.

What Can I Expect After Treatment?

Immediately after treatment, your skin may appear pinkish and feel more tender than usual. This should fade within a few hours. There is a risk of bruising, but this is rare when an experienced practitioner performs the microdermabrasion.

Over the next couple of days, you may experience a sensation similar to mild sunburn. There is no downtime, and you can go straight back to your regular routine after a microdermabrasion treatment.

Stages of recovery

  • 24 hours: mild to moderate erythema, mild swelling
  • 1-2 days: mild erythema, mild itchiness, tight/dry sensation
  • 2-3 days: mild skin flaking, dry sensation
  • 3-4 days: slight dryness
  • 4-7 days: full recovery

Microdermabrasion Aftercare Tips

Microdermabrasion stimulates cell renewal by buffing away the tired and dull-looking surface layers of skin. To achieve optimal results, you need to follow the aftercare instructions your practitioner provides.

The following microdermabrasion aftercare tips help protect your skin and speed up the healing process for smoother, younger-looking skin.

Use Sunscreen

It’s important to protect your skin from the sun’s powerful UV rays. During the first few days following treatment, your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight. You should try to avoid direct sun exposure if possible and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen.

Avoid Products That Could Cause Irritation

You should avoid exfoliating products and products containing harsh ingredients that could irritate your skin for at least 72 hours following microdermabrasion. It’s also important to avoid rubbing or picking your skin during this time.

Keep Your Skin Hydrated

After a microdermabrasion session, your new skin will feel softer and smoother than ever. It will also be more receptive to moisturisers. You can keep your skin feeling smooth and aid the healing process by using a gentle moisturiser as needed throughout the day.

Avoid Strenuous Exercise

A good workout can lift your mood and give your skin a healthy glow, but you should avoid pushing yourself for a few days following microdermabrasion. Your skin will be more sensitive post-treatment, and sweating could lead to irritation.

For the same reason, you should also avoid saunas and hot baths for a few days until your skin has fully healed.

Don’t Use Blood-Thinning Medications

Aspirin and ibuprofen both have a blood-thinning effect that can slow down the healing process. You should avoid these medications and others that thin the blood for 48 hours post-treatment. It’s also advisable to avoid alcohol consumption until your skin has fully recovered.
