What is Microdermabrasion ?

It is a non-invasive procedure, where a skincare professional uses a machine to exfoliate or resurface the top layer of your skin. There are many kinds of microdermabrasion treatments, the most common ones are Crystal or Diamond wand. Here at Imperial Skin Care we use the Diamond Wand Microdermabrasion System.

Microdermabrasion Treatments can help to treat aging and sun-damaged skin, blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles and some types of acne and acne scarring. Because microdermabrasion removes dead surface skin cells and initiates cellular turnover, results may include improved skin tone, fewer breakouts, diminished appearance of scars, refined skin pores and a healthy glow. The suction stimulation alone boosts blood circulation and revitalizes collagen production, which instigates the regrowth of new younger-looking skin. The oxygen helps to speed up collagen production and sooth the newly exfoliated skin

Microdermabrasion Treatments are suitable for most skin colors and types. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour. There is a little or no discomfort in this treatment, there are no side effects and your skin will look glowing and fresh almost immediately after treatment. Some more aggressive treatments may cause the skin to look slightly pink and tender for few hours afterward. You can resume normal acitivities and apply makeup and moisturizer directly after your session.

Sunscreen is extremely important. Remember to use it daily especially if you have had a Microdermabrasion treatment. Taking good care of your skin at home will help you maintain a healthy skin.

For skin conditions requiring less intensive treatments, there are also a number of products in the market for Home Microdermabrasion.

Facial Treatments

Facial Treatment Options

A professional Facial Treatment is usually performed in a Salon or Spa environment with reliable results achieved by a trained and licensed Aesthetician.

Depending on your Skin Condition and the purpose of the Facial these typically consists of a combination of procedures which can include but not limited to:

  • Deep Cleansing
  • Extractions
  • Steaming
  • Massage
  • Exfoliation
  • Masks
  • Creams
These procedures are usually performed on the Face and Neck but can also extend to Shoulders and Back where skin conditions require treatment. The outcome of the treatment is to refresh and rejuvenate the skin and to treat various conditions including acne, blackheads, whiteheads and pigmentation as the typical range of skin conditions.
