Why Microdermabrasions need to become part of your ongoing skin regime

You might be thinking… why bother with regular Microdermabrasion treatments? Our skin is the largest organ in the body and just like your other organs, it needs tender loving care.

Looking after your skin should be no different to visiting the dentist for a check-up, going to the optometrist for an eye check, visiting the doctor for an annual review. But for some reason, we feel guilty about looking after our skin because it’s… indulgent? Well, we are here to tell you that your skin is just as important as any other body part! And you should embrace taking the time to look after yourself. Here are all the reasons why Microdermabrasions need to become part of your ongoing skin regime.

It’s your monthly ‘me’ time.

Treat yourself. Getting a Microdermabrasion feels good and it's relaxing. It doesn't hurt, and it doesn't sting. During treatment, your eyes are closed, you’re in your happy place, and you're not on your phone – what a dream! Not to mention, there’s a skincare specialist staking care of you. It’s such a great way to destress while also looking after yourself.

It's half an hour (10 mins, if you opt for our Express Micro) once in a while, and it's so good for your brain and your cortisol levels to just take a little break. 

It removes dead skin cells and promotes glowing skin.

Microdermabrasions gently removes all the dead cells on the top of the epidermis, which is called the stratum corneum. In removing those cells all at once, it stimulates the cells beneath it to all renew at the same time. There are no chemicals involved, it's a mechanical treatment. 

It makes your skin brighter, smoother and clearer, seriously.

At your 5-Step Microdermabrasion, we use cosmedical products from Australia's leading brand Skinstitut™. As a result of combing the two, skin will look smoother, more even. There will be more of a glow or a brightness to your skin. Prior to a Microdermabrasion treatment, all of those dead cells on the top can make your skin appear a bit dull. After treatment, you'll have an even skin tone without those dead, greyish cells on top.

It allows for better product absorption and makeup application.

Healthier skin allows for better skincare product absorption. While smooth skin that is clear of dead skin cells allows for easy application of your makeup.

Micros are suited to many skin types and are super safe. 
Micros are well suited for every skin type. Any skin tone, any ethnic group, men and women, young, old. It's not invasive, and it's safe. You can even do it during pregnancy because there are no chemicals involved.

Micros are an excellent maintenance treatment and are particularly helpful for acne sufferers.

Microdermabrasions are the perfect maintenance skin treatment and they are particularly helpful for combatting and reducing acne. Microdermabrasions for acne (and micros in general) help to:

  • Brighten your complexion – gently removing dead skin cells to reveal brighter, clearer skin.
  • Reduce breakouts – Microdermabrasions for active acne helps to unclog pores and clears congestion to help reduce acne, blackheads and breakouts.
  • Keep skin youthful – regular exfoliation helps to promote cell renewal and collagen production. Microdermabrasions have anti-aging benefits, promote even skin tone and can treat premature aging caused by sun exposure, dry skin, acne, blemish scars, sunspots, and fine lines.

It’s that feel good factor all year round. Book in for a complimentary consultation and you’re on your way to glowing skin.
