To improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, age spots, acne scarring and melasma, a minimally invasive procedure called microdermabrasion is used. Micrdermabrasion renews overall skin tone and texture. BUt what is the difference between microdermabrasion and hydromicrodermabrasion?

There are a few different microdermabrasion techniques – one of them uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate. Another technique simply sprays fine aluminium oxide or sodium bicarbonate particles on to the skin while suctioning as well to accomplish the same outcome as the first technique qith the abrasive applicator.

How it really works: it mechanically exfoliates and removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vacuums them away, leaving your skin feeling softer and smoother and you feeling cleaner and healthier.

A different approach – Hydro microdermabrasion

For most skin types, microdermabrasion is a safe procedure, however for the ones with more sensitive skin, hydromirodermabrasion might be a better option. Utilising water jets instead of the abrasive surface or fine particles, the outer layer of the skin is broken up and a more even texture of the skin is revealed.

This procedure is gentle and relaxing, perfect exfoliation as there is no discomfort whatsoever.

Hydro microdermabrasion is used on all skin types, and will help aging skin, skin that is congested, blemished skin, or dull and discolored skin. The results will be seen immediately after the procedure – skin will be hydrated and softer to touch as the hydromicrodermabrasion has just increased the circulation and lymph flow.

For a better, fresher, younger and more elastic skin, try hydro microdermbrasion – the process takes only about half an hour to do and you will feel significant changes right after the procedure.
