Smooth, even, luminous skin — it’s something we all want, yet only a few are blessed with naturally. For the rest of us, imperfections such as pigmentation, acne, fine lines, dull skin and scars can leave our complexion looking less than ideal.

Skin exfoliation is a way to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells and debris that clog the pores and create a weary complexion. One exfoliation method that produces immediate results without discomfort or downtime is microdermabrasion. This treatment is available at Kaya Cosmedica, both as a stand-alone treatment and in combination with other procedures to help you meet all your aesthetic goals.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that removes surface skin cells to produce a cleaner, more refreshed appearance. A device is used to sand away the superficial layer, and the loosened cells and debris are then suctioned away. In the process of exfoliation, subtle imperfections are also improved even while the skin is renewed for a healthy, radiant look following the procedure.

Not only does microdermabrasion remove the damaged outer layer of your skin, but it also encourages higher production of collagen and elastin. This means that, although microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure, it still yields incredible and lasting results.

This painless treatment offers a myriad of benefits, as it addresses the following concerns:

  • Uneven skin texture
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Dull complexion
  • Fine lines
  • Shallow scarring, usually from acne or chicken pox
  • Signs of acne, like whiteheads or blackheads
  • Enlarged pores

Microdermabrasion is also effective in increasing circulation in the skin, which produces the healthy glow you are sure to enjoy after treatment. The procedure offers instant, subtle results that can be further enhanced with subsequent sessions. In addition, combining microdermabrasion with other skin rejuvenation treatments can create an even more dramatic outcome.

Where Can It Be Used?

The most common treatment area for microdermabrasion is the face, where it can address signs of ageing and sun damage, as well as other minor imperfections. However, we can also use this procedure to rejuvenate the skin of the neck, chest, back and the backs of the hands with excellent results in most cases. Our expert staff at Kaya Cosmedica will assess the condition of your skin to determine whether microdermabrasion might be the best choice for achieving your cosmetic goals.

Can Microdermabrasion Be Done At Home?

Though there are microdermabrasion devices designed for home use, professional microdermabrasion treatments are strongly recommended. The procedure should be performed by a trained cosmetic practitioner to ensure it is done safely and customised for your skin type and concerns. Having microdermabrasion done in a professional setting is also an opportunity to ask your practitioner questions about other treatments and products that can transform your skin for the better.
