Laser treatment is popularly used to treat all kinds of skin issues and problems, from acne scars and stretch marks to uneven pigmentation and superficial signs of ageing. However, it is often most effective when used in conjunction with other methods and treatments, such as microdermabrasion.
When combined with laser therapy, microdermabrasion can thoroughly exfoliate the skin and encourage renewal. It does not damage the skin, instead working in harmony with the biological structure of the skin.
How it works
If you are booked in for a treatment involving microdermabrasion, you can expect the following. After all pre-treatment checks and preparations have been completed, a hand-held device will be used on the affected area of your skin. You may feel a scratching sensation as fine, high-quality, medical grade crystals are passed over your skin in a highly controlled flow. This is often followed by laser therapy.
The purpose of this treatment is to sensitively remove superficial layers of the skin, which is where visible skin problems and imperfections are often found. Whilst microdermabrasion reveals the fresher, more youthful-looking skin underneath, laser therapy boosts the production of collagen and new skin cells.
