Microdermabrasion Facial at Pearl Chermside
We frequently combine a microdermabrasion facial with a chemical peel to get more advanced exfoliating treatments. The combination of superficial peels delivers a more refined therapy.
What Is the Purpose of Microdermabrasion?
Micros exfoliate dry or rough outer layers of skin by sloughing surface skin cells. Exfoliation is essential for healthy skin. It is a versatile treatment that targets the face, neck, and décolletage. Exfoliate more effectively by combining Microderm with peels and extractions.
Do micros work? Yes, as long as you are the appropriate candidate. Microdermabrasion facials are fantastic for settling acne and minor skin imperfections.
- Improve skin tone
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Lift dull skin tone,
- reduce open or enlarged pores, and aid in the removal of blackheads
Conversely, a microderm will not treat acne scars, sagging skin, existing wrinkles, or correct facial creases or folds. On the other hand, our team addresses these with resurfacing, skin tightening, dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, and other treatments.
Microdermabrasion for Acne Treatment
A microdermabrasion facial can aid in the resolution of acne for clear skin and a bright complexion—the microderm results in a deep cleansing to remove pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. The removed layer of skin contains dead skin cells, which contribute to pore obstruction and acne. However, the skin’s surface is unaffected.
How Does Acne Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion for acne is solely concerned with the physical removal of pore obstruction. Furthermore, combining micros with other modalities enhances the benefits. As a result, we frequently combine micros with extractions, chemical peels, and skincare. Moreover, we provide a variety of acne treatments, such as Kleresca acne treatment, to treat moderate to severe cystic acne.
Acne Treatment with Microdermabrasion
A series of microdermabrasion facial treatments spaced one to four weeks apart, is required. (This varies depending on the severity of the acne.) After each session, you will notice a gradual clearing of obstructions and settling of acne.
Micros are excellent for removing clogged or congested pores and removing hormonal breakouts, pimples, and acne for clean and clear skin. We recommend trying this more natural approach to acne treatment before resorting to medical treatments. For a more advanced exfoliation, we combine our micro with peels.
Acne Scar Microdermabrasion
Micros can only help with acne scarring if they are used to prevent it! Microdermabrasion is not an effective acne scar treatment. It can help to polish the surface appearance, but it cannot penetrate the dermis and initiate repair. Acne scars are treated with a variety of advanced medical treatments. Rf resurfacing, laser scar treatment, PRP therapy, skin needling, or subcision are all options. Our cosmetic doctors can also improve acne scarring cosmetically with dermal filler.
Tixel facials, fractional CO2 laser treatments and radiofrequency provide superior results for skin textural concerns. However, the results are incomparable because laser and radiofrequency can penetrate the dermal layer.
- RF radiofrequency improves the texture and appearance of sun damage more quickly. In most cases, four – six treatments are required.
- Chemical peels such as Vitamin A peels or Jessner peels are better suited to addressing pigmentation and skin texture issues caused by sun damage. This peel takes 15 minutes and usually results in full-face flaking within a week. Typically, three are required.
- Skin needling and fractional laser are more effective at improving skin texture, tone, and quality. These require more downtime and are expensive, but they produce better results with fewer treatments.
- Combinations of microdermabrasion and glycolic peels allow for deeper peel penetration.
- Laser, BBL, laser, or chemical peels are more effective at treating pigmentation.
