Ultimate Diamond Micro

THREE TYPES OF MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive method of gently resurfacing the skin. We use diamond-tipped microdermabrasion heads which provide a superior result to crystal and are also more suited to acne management. Vacuum suction is also used to unblock pores and remove debris from the skin.

Are all microdermabrasion treatments the same?

Not at all. At the Ultimate Skin & Body Clinic, we offer three several variants on microdermabrasion and have developed protocols suitable for all skin types – these are:

  • Ultimate Diamond Microdermabrasion
    Suitable for “derm newbies”, pregnant ladies and those wanting a quick pick-me-up.
    Also great for acne management between more intensive treatments
  • Ultimate Anti-Ageing Microdermabrasion
    Possibly the best facial treatment ever this 12 step facial incorporates microdermabrasion and chemical peeling for a truly effective treatment. Suitable for Normal and dry skin, anti-ageing, sensitive and sun damaged skin. For even greater wow factor add an LED treatment too.
  • Ultimate Acne/Oily Corrective Microdermabrasion
    A highly effective treatment for acne and skin producing excess oils. This treatment unblocks pores, includes extractions, uses peels to rejuvenate scar tissue and assist cell turnover, promoting healing. If you suffer from chronic acne, ask about our intense acne program which combines LED light therapy with microdermabrasion and peels.

WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive method of gently resurfacing the skin. We use diamond-tipped microdermabrasion heads which provide a superior result to crystal and are also more suited to acne management. Vacuum suction is also used to unblock pores and remove debris from the skin.

 

ARE ALL MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENTS THE SAME?

Not at all. At the Ultimate Skin & Body Clinic we offer three several variants on microdermabrasion and have developed protocols suitable for all skin types – these are:

  • Ultimate Diamond Microdermabrasion Suitable for “derm newbies”, pregnant ladies and those wanting a quick pick me up as well as acne management between more intensive treatments.
  • Ultimate Anti-Ageing Microdermabrasion Possibly the best facial treatment ever this 12 step facial incorporates microdermabrasion and chemical peeling for a truly effective treatment. Suitable for Normal and dry skin, anti-ageing, sensitive and sun damaged skin this is.
  • Ultimate Oily/Acne Corrective Microdermabrasion A highly effective treatment for acne and skin producing excess oils.

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

This will depend on the nature of your skin concern and your commitment to improving your skin. If you suffer from severe acne you will initially need 6-8 treatments, starting 2 weeks apart and progressing to 4-week intervals. We offer value packages to make this more affordable.

For anti-aging and general skin appearance monthly maintenance treatments are ideal although you may stretch these out a little longer.

 

IS MICRODERMABRASION SAFE?

Absolutely. Microdermabrasion is a starting level treatment and as such it carries minimal risks and downtime.

 

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?

None – you will be fine to go straight back to work or school after your treatment. Depending on your skin type, you may experience a little dryness of the skin but we apply nourishment and moisturiser before you leave the clinic. The skin may also appear redder than usual for the remainder of the day.

 

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS?

Medical-grade microdermabrasion provides gentle facial rejuvenation and has been proven to be effective for fine lines; enlarged or blocked pores; acne and complexion issues; sun damage; age spots; keratoses; hyperpigmentation; uneven skin tone; oily skin; dry/patchy skin; acne scarring; black/whiteheads; stretch marks; and dull, lifeless skin. In addition, most patients experience dramatic improvements in the colour, tone, and texture of treated areas.

Microdermabrasion treatments help your skin to look thicker, healthier, and more
