What is The Ultra Peel-Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an intense exfoliation
process that rejuvenates the skin by utilizing ultra-fine aluminum
oxide crystals to remove the upper layer of the stratum corneum.
At the same time, the handpiece of the instrument contains a vacuum
tube that sweeps up both the crystals and the skin's cellular debris.
This process exfoliates the skin, stimulating the production of
collagen and elastin which will result in a firmer, more youthful
looking skin over time.
What results can I
expect, and how soon?
Depending on the area treated, you will notice an improvement in
your skin's appearance. Acne scars will be less obvious. Age spots
and fine lines are greatly diminished and many patients report that
their skin seems to be softer, smoother, and younger-looking. After
your first treatment, you skin will have a fresh pink glow. Improvement
continues throughout your treatment program. You will begin to notice
visible results after about the third treatment.
What are its uses?
The Microdermabrasion buffs the skin of fine lines and discoloration
while refining texture and hue. Repeated treatments yield excellent
results for scar revision (whether from acne, chicken pox, or even
surgery scars) as well as deep discoloration, melasma, and tattoo
What are treatments
With the aid of microcrystals vacuumed through a delicate handpiece,
held at a precise angel to the skin, a technician effects a superficial
skin polishing. In as little as 30-45 minutes, this gentle abrasive
technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Treatments are
applied through a course of weekly sessions. Microdermabrasion can
engance skin condition and do what no other available treatment
can (without surgery) in combating the signs of aging skin. Most
importantly, it is safe to use on all skin types and colors.
How often can I get
Every 7 to 10 days for up to 12-15 treatments. Monthly treatments
are recommended to maintain best results.
What's the down time?
Unlike chemical peels, laser resurfacing, or plastic surgery, there
is little or no down time. At most, patients will be pink (and must
consequently wear sunscreens diligently) for a day or two after
What are the benefits
over other procedures?
last about 30-45 minutes, and do not cause any disruptions to normal
activities. There is less discomfort and recovery is fast. Furthermore,
microdermabrasion is effective on all body areas. Chemical peels
and laser resurfacing are most effective on the face but are not
as safe and are less effective on the neck, chest, and hands. Moreover,
microdermabrasion is superb on the face and on the hands (even the
knuckles), chest, neck, knees, elbows, etc.
