Microdermabrasion, also known as ‘Crystal Peeling’, is a process that blasts sterile corundum (a type of mineral) crystals onto the skin surface, so as to exfoliate the dead outer layer.
With little downtime, this quick procedure is suitable for lunch hour beauty therapy. It enables the dead cells to be abraded and then whisked away by vacuum suction. New cell growth is subsequently stimulated, leaving skin smoother, brighter, firmer and, with a course of treatment, blemish free.
This is particularly recommended for people with thick, oily and congested skin, which, after the treatment, has more of a glow. For those with soft acne scars, multiple sessions will reduce the depth of scarring, producing a more even complexion.
Joz Salon & Spa uses a microdermabrasion system that has the added function of lymphatic drainage, which is routinely performed prior to the procedure, helping to clear the toxins accumulated in the tissues.
The microdermabrasion process was developed 15 years ago. It has since been fully researched and tested by the European medical profession, and is now being administered in full safety at progressive medical and cosmetic practices.
Depending on the problems to be treated, the level of exfoliation can be adjusted so that the process is pleasant or tolerable. A slight redness will fade within one to 24 hours, depending on the strength of the treatment.
• Gentle exfoliation for tired, dull skin
• Congested skin with open pores and comedones (blackheads and whiteheads)
• Superficial pigmentation
• Stretch marks
• Acne scar blending and improvement
• Ageing hands
• Blemishes from ingrown hair
• Blackheads, unclear complexion.
Joz Salon & Spa finds the procedure particularly useful in assisting in the removal of comedones, especially in the nose area. “If your nose is studded with blackheads, microdermabrasion will remove any overgrowing skin that can make these unsightly spots difficult to squeeze out,” says a salon spokesperson.
Coupled with a purifying facial treatment, this is a comfortable way of improving the appearance of problematic young skin.
Special added benefits
• Immediate visible results
• Brilliance and tonicity
• Increases micro circulation, bringing nutrients to the skin
• Improves the appearance of imperfections
• Increases the penetration of serums and creams by four to five times.
Benefits can be visible after one treatment; however, the programme should be based on your skin condition and the goals that you want to achieve.
The microdermabrasion technique is not an instant fix for problems. It is a gradual removal process of dead cells and blemishes with the promotion of healthy new skin.
Once you have attained your goal, monthly maintenance is recommended. Even if you have no major concerns, you can still gain from the procedure. Your look will be brighter, firmer, clearer and healthier.
