ANTIAGING TREATMENTS: FACIAL

Dermabrasion


Dermabrasion affects deeper layers of skin than chemical peels, and may be useful for removing disfiguring marks, such as deep acne scars or deep wrinkles. It is often used instead of chemical peels for people with darker skin colours, and as with chemical peels, it cannot be used around the eyes.

 

Standard Dermabrasion

Standard dermabrasion uses a rotating brush to selectively remove the top layers of skin, exposing the underlying dermal layers. The effect of this is similar to chemical peels, with scabbing and new skin formation.

 

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a very popular procedure, which has largely replaced the standard version. Being a gentler variation, it uses very tiny crystals to polish the skin and a vacuum technique to remove them.

Results are similar to light chemical peels and can be done in lunch breaks, allowing patients to return directly to work. Only mild redness occurs after treatment, although for best results five or six repetitive treatments are needed every 1-2 weeks.
