Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive clinically proven skin-renewal technique with no post-treatment flushing or “downtime” (often called the lunchtime treatment).
Mature aging skin retains an inherent ability to respond to treatments such as microdermabrasion. With the accelafuze system, gentle removal of the dead outermost layer of skin (stratum corneum) is followed by a topical infusion of a chemical “stimulant” to promote cell growth and repair with the production of collagen and elastin. The result: reduced aging, healthier skin tone and texture and a more radiant appearance.
What can I expect? A smooth more “plumped” look with improved coarseness and a texture. Also a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation and an improvement in inflammatory conditions such as acne and rosacea.
Who can be treated? Anyone. Accelafuze treats all types of skin colours.
How long does it take? 30-45 minutes
What are the side effects and risks? Rarely mild post-treatment redness for a day or two and occasionally slight flakiness after 3-4 days.
Is it painful? No. slight tingling at the most.
What type of skin problems are treated? Sun damage and granuler, uneven skin. Fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and blackheads and comedones.
How many treatments are required? For most conditions a minimum of three to six is recommended although improvements in texture and appearance are immediately obvious. Each treatment removes approximately 30% of the dead all skin layer and thus, with subsequent treatments, changes in the deeper skin cell layers are noticed. After the initial series a maintenance treatment every 2-3 months are recommended. Many clients employ monthly dermabrasion as part of their regular skincare.
Who should not get dermabrasion? Active infections in the treatment area (impetiyo, herpes, warts) Untreated rosacea. Use of Accutane in the past six months. Recently waxed or sunburn skin.
