Microdermabrasion Background on the Treatment
Crystal Skin Peeling for face and body for a healthier more youthful skin appearance can become a reality with rejuvenating, effective and relaxing treatments. The Bio-Brasion is a new science in skincare using simple, gentle therapy, the results of which are lasting and consistent.
Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. We use a piece of the latest technology which acts like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin.
As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
This simple, quick and convenient procedure has become very popular with clients showing the early signs of aging, sun exposure and other facial imperfections. Non-invasive and non-wounding to the skin's surface, the procedure entails virtually no discomfort, down time or recovery. Clients typically experience some redness for about an hour after the procedure. In addition to the face, microdermabrasion can be successfully used on the neck, arms and hands.
It is also beneficial for clients with darker skin types. This rejuvenation method is generally indicated for:
- Dull, oily or leathery skin texture
- Contracting enlarged pores
- Exfoliating and suctioning clogged pores in acne cases
- Polishing and reducing fine lines
- Mild acne scarring
- Mild pigment irregularities
- Enhancing penetration of therapeutic agents
Bio-Brasion & how it works
The Bio-Brasion is a new science in skincare using simple, gentle therapy, the results of which are lasting and consistent.
The Bio-Brasion system works with a fine stream of crystals which are gently propelled onto the skin's surface. At the same time, exfoliated skin and used crystals are hygienically vacuumed away revealing rejuvenated and renewed skin.
The microdermabrasion treatment
The Bio-Brasion facial treatment is a gentle and relaxing facial exfoliation treatment which removes dead skin cells, eliminates blocked pores and comedones. Bio Brasion smoothes lines and wrinkles, thus achieving a smooth, radiant and glowing appearance.
- Following a consultation with your therapist, the Bio-Brasion facial treatment will commence
- The Face and neck area is double cleansed using a glycolic preparation solution to remove any oil
- The treatment then begins working along the face and neck with simple vertical movements followed by horizontal movements
- We reduce the vacuum pressure when we work around the delicate eye area
- Within the facial treatment we would do any extractions needed and continue with using any serums or masks on the skin that are appropriate
We do other exfoliation type treatments e.g. Peels which also tone the skin and remove dead skin cells exposing younger looking skin.
On occasions we use the microdermabrasion as a pre-treatment to using Laser e.g. N-Lite laser treatment for Acne where it improves the efficacy of this Laser treatment by removing dead skin cells and improving light penetration.
It can also be used to assist the Skin Laser Rejuvenation treatment where the impact of the crystals on the skin bring red blood cells more to the surface which are the target for the laser light.
