Microdermabrasion North Sydney at LAB Skin Clinic. Call 02 9170 4693


MicrodermabrasionMicrodermabrasion North Sydney at LAB Skin Clinic has been used for many years to treat facial lines, lacklustre skin, corneocompaction, dehydration, extreme sun damage and scars. 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’.

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 is quick and simple with no discomfort and no down time. Normally any slight redness after treatment fades within hours.

Microdermabrasion skin resurfacing can be used for both medical and non-medical indications. Medical indications include active acne, acne scars, facial scars, hypertrophied and keloid scars, hyper pigmentation, melasma, fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. Non-medical indications include total body toning, total body exfoliation, bust firming/lifting, lymphatic drainage, cellulite treatment and face polishing with organic crystals. It is a treatment that also compliments other procedures such as IPL, lasers and chemical peels.

During Microdermabrasion, crystals, or a diamond tipped tool, are used to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin. This is usually combined with a suction device to clean out pores, remove clogging and draw underlying debris to the surface to facilitate easier extraction. The suction device simultaneously draws blood to the surface of the skin, increasing the level of oxygenated blood to the dermis and speeding up the natural production of collagen, elastin and fibroblast. This increase in intercellular activity and in the skin’s regeneration process helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Conventional micro dermabrasion systems fire crystals (or other particles) to abrade the skin. This crystal is called White Infused Alumina, more commonly known as aluminium oxide. Aluminium oxide is an inert product that is shaped like a diamond. It is the edges of this diamond shape that achieves the exfoliation process. While the actual size and grade of crystal used may vary between suppliers, aluminium oxide crystals usually resemble grains of white sugar and, contrary to popular belief, do not float around in the air.

Diamond tipped treatment heads, on the other hand, allow therapists to deal with thinner, finer skin types, which do not require heavier exfoliation but still have fine lines and wrinkles. Instead of firing crystals at the skin, the technician gently strokes the skin with a diamond-tipped treatment head.

Micro dermabrasion using the crystal particles has been described as an uncontrolled exfoliation process; the majority of exfoliation does not happen immediately. Rather it occurs 2 to 3 days after the treatment.
