Microdermabrasion – what’s this treatment all about?
Some say it’s a half an hour facelift, others call it the glowing skin miracle worker. But you may be wondering whether the treatment is right for you and your skin type.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny crystals or other exfoliating surfaces to help remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells.
When you remove the stratum corneum or the top layer of skin, the body interprets it as an injury. It then quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones.
Microdermabrasion benefits people with uneven pigmentation, fine lines and clogged pores. It resurfaces the skin, removing imperfections and impurities and leaves clients with smoother and younger-looking skin. Even after just one treatment clients can see a real difference. Many opt for this over collagen injections, the results are that good!
What is the CACI Microdermabrasion treatment?
CACI Orbital Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment. It works by gently removing the dead layer of skin with the use of an orbital rotation handpiece which significantly reduces skin imperfections such as pigmentation, age spots, wrinkles and impurities.
Light therapy is also emitted from the device to enhance circulation, wound healing, speed up cell renewal, stimulate collagen and also act as a calming agent.
Microdermabrasion can be used on sensitive skin, normal and mature skin. The disposable abrasion tips come in 3 grades, fine, medium and coarse allowing Serenity’s skin experts the ability to adjust the abrasion level. They are coated in an anti-allergy layer of Silicon Carbide that progressively removes the superficial layer of the epidermis.
The final process to this treatment includes the Hydratone Gel Mask, which is infused with the powerful hydrating properties collagen, hyaluronic acid and rose water. The mask is used in conjunction with active microcurrent rollers that massage the face so that the mask becomes ‘charged’. The rejuvenating energy improves lymphatic drainage, giving your face a softer, radiant, more youthful appearance.
A course of treatments is recommended for optimum results, or you can book this as a one-off treatment.
