Microdermabrasion is a gentle, tried and tested procedure that exfoliates the skin, unblocks clogged pores and reduces congestion. Combining an advanced, diamond encrusted handpiece with vacuum suction, this process gently removes dead, dull surface skin cells and stimulates the production of new cells deep within the epidermis. It can be combined with a wide range of other skin treatments including sonophoresis infusions, skin peels, LED light therapy, IPL photorejuventaion and Laser Genesis for an enhanced effect.
Elysium Skin Centre has the state-of-the-art ASAP microplus+ machine designed and built here in Australia. In addition to clinical grade microdermabrasion, it has ultrasonic sonophoresis for maximum skin correcting results.
Microdermabrasion can also be performed in conjunction with a warm, relaxing infusion treatment known as Sonophoresis. This massaging process utilises ultrasonic (soundwave) technology to increase circulation and infuse selected treatment serums deeply into the skin, resulting in increased skin smoothness, firmness and hydration, and temporarily improving fine lines. Infusions are individually tailored to your skin type and condition.
All skin types are suitable for Microdermabrasion. At your initial complimentary consultation with Dermal Therapist Jo Parker, Jenny or Whitney, your skin will assessed by our knowledgeable staff to tailor a treatment plan most appropriate for your skin type and concerns.
Microdermabrasion does not have any downtime. Your skin may feel tight and appear pink immediately after the skin treatment, however, this will subside within minutes to a couple of hours. You may also see some fine flaking of the skin over the next couple of days. These are all normal and are signs the treatment has been effective.
We will apply sunscreen, and a healing breathable foundation (Oxygenetix) can be used post treatment to cover any redness.
It is best to avoid swimming, exercise and sun exposure for 24hrs post treatment. We always recommend using a high quality sunscreen to wear at all times, and that you follow your professional skincare regime to maximise the benefits of your treatment.
