What to expect with Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is used as a way to perfect your outer layer of skin with light abrasive tools and substances. The purpose of microdermabrasion is to improve outer skin quality. A microdermabrasion treatment can unclog your pores, reduce pimples by cleansing the skin and improve overall skin quality. It can also enable easier and more effective application of moisturising creams which can be absorbed by the underlying layers of skin.
During your microdermabrasion treatment miniscule rough grains will be used to exfoliate bad skin away, buffing and potentially improving the outer layer of skin. This outer layer is known as the stratum corneum which is a skin barrier between exterior forces. This will be removed with an abrasion tool, exfoliating away the outer layer of skin.
Microdermabrasion for acne and skin quality
The purpose of microdermabrasion is to improve overall skin quality which includes texture and appearance. Having regular microdermabrasion treatment can improve how ‘clean’ your skin is in terms of oils which cause acne. Exfoliating is one of the main ways you can decrease your risk of acne which is why microdermabrasion is beneficial to people experiencing acne. If you often get pimples, whiteheads or blackheads on areas of your face such as your T-Zone then you will most likely experience improved skin quality and complexion with regular microdermabrasion appointments at our Perth cosmetic clinic and plastic surgery.
