Microdermabrasion Mosman – LAB Skin Clinic. Call 02 9170 4693
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive and non-chemical facial exfoliating procedure to help repair the effects of sun damage and ageing.
Microdermabrasion uses a very gentle and finely abrasive micro-diamond-tip to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells to clear the pores of debris and reveal a brighter and more even skin tone, and newer and fresher-looking skin.
In conjunction with Omnilux LED therapy, a microdermabrasion treatment is a cosmetic procedure that treats sun-induced pigmentation, poor skin tone and texture, congestion, acne scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores and ‘stretch marks’.
Integrated Omnilux and Microdermabrasion assist in the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells that has higher levels of collagen and elastin, which improve skin firmness and clarity.
Microdermabrasion is much gentler than dermabrasion, which is a more intensive procedure used to treat deeper wrinkles, extreme sun damage, and scars.
For optimal results, a series of six treatments, approximately two weeks apart, is usually recommended followed by monthly maintenance, if required.
Microdermabrasion is a superficial treatment only and a more aggressive therapy such as a chemical peel, micro-needling, laser resurfacing, IPL, radio frequency or ultrasound will be required for sagging, deep wrinkles, skin folds and creases, and post-acne “pock-mark” and “ice-pick” scars.

More than one treatment may be required to reduce fine lines and unwanted pigment but microdermabrasion does provide an immediately refreshed appearance.
Over time and with regular treatments, pigmentation fades and surface irregularities, such as fine lines and acne scars, begin to soften. Treatment of the whole face takes about 40 minutes with no real discomfort and little down time. Normally any slight redness after treatment fades within hours.
