Microdermabrasion Brisbane Northside

In this modern day and age, more and more people are suffering from acne and acne scarring.  The cosmetic technique of microdermabrasion is a very useful procedure.  So what is it and how does it work?  Tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gradually remove the outer layer of skin, similar to an exfoliation procedure.  At Ubuntu Medical our machine buffs and polishes to loosen skin cells from the face.  No medication is needed to numb the skin.  As a result the skin is left to look softer and brighter.  Expect the session with our practice nurse to last between 20-60 minutes.

After the procedure is completed, you skin will initially look red and a little swollen.  This will last for a few days.  Your skin will return to its natural colour 7-10 days after treatment is completed.  During this period of time it is recommended to avoid direct sunlight so that your skin is able to properly heal.


How Often Should You Get Microdermabrasion Done?

We suggest between 3-6 treatments.  However this will depend on your skin condition and your personal finances.  We recommend 1-2 months between treatments to allow your skin to properly heal.


Microdermabrasion and Acne

Do you suffer from acne or acne scarring?  Wondering whether this treatment is going to be right for you?  Microdermabrasion Brisbane is useful as it strips blackheads out with a suction and abrasion method.  In the process the outer layer of (dead) skin will be removed.  Basically all the dirt that is blocking your pores will be removed.  It is also useful in cleaning out larger zits as well, helping to suck out the puss and reduce their size.

This technique is generally suggested for people suffering from mild acne.  For more serious cases it is recommended that you speak with your dermatologist about other acne management options.


Other Applications

Some people request Microdermabrasion treatments as a cosmetic treatment.  It can be used to diminish the appearance of superficial pigmentation, wrinkles and face lines.  If you are using other cosmetic skin products, this procedure can help them to penetrate the skin on your face more effectively by up to 50%.
