Things to know about Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a reasonably quick facial treatment, I also call it Rapid Results, because it is after all what everyone wants isn’t it?

Perfect for:

  • sun damage.
  • lines and wrinkles
  • breakouts
  • promoting even skin tone
  • pigmentation

Most people have heard of a microdermabrasion treatment but not everyone knows what it entails.
We have a few variations of this treatment but basically when you book in for a standalone microdermabrasion treatment your skin will be cleansed with the appropriate cleanser for your skin type and then we will start the microdermabrasion treatment. We use the Clairderm Medical Saphire machine which has a long wand on it that spits out tiny little crystals that feel slightly abrasive on the skin. I think it feels like a mini vacuum cleaner, cleaning up the surface of your face. In fact this is basically what the procedure is for; it removes dead skin cells, by buffing the surface layer of your skin with a stream of tiny crystals and pulling dead skin cells and impurities up to the surface. Your therapist can adjust the suction to make it more or less abrasive feeling, depending on what you and your skin can cope with.

We finish the treatment by infusing vitamins into the skin to heal and leave the skin calm and hydrated.

Microdermabrasion is suitable for most skin types and all ages. After the treatment, you will walk out feeling like you have the cleanest of clean skins and that all the moisture and goodness of the world has found its way back into your skin. If your skin really needs to it may flake a little a day or so after the treatment.

A microdermabrasion is recommended either as a course of treatments when you start out or once a month to keep your skin nice and fresh.

Skin Needling in Toorak

Skin needling also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is an advanced skin treatment that is used to treat an array of different skin concerns, including;

  • ageing,
  • fine lines and wrinkles,
  • acne scarring or other various forms of scars,
  • pigmentation,
  • stretch marks.

The treatment is painless; we use a topical anesthetic cream to numb the area before performing the treatment.

How does skin needling work?

Skin Needling works by creating a micro injury in the skin at the targeted site. Our aim here is to create controlled inflammation in the skin, this triggers a cascade of reactions by the skin working to repair itself.

Essentially we are waking the skin cells up and giving them a job to do. The main components involved are cytokines (these are small proteins with a signalling function) and fibroblast cells (responsible for laying down new collagen) we are also stimulating growth factors in the dermis to repair structural integrity and give the collagen a stable base to build upon. As this is a non-invasive treatment that is triggering your skin to work for itself, it takes a progressive approach, meaning your skin will keep getting better and better for up to a year after the treatment.

We do recommend a course spaced apart monthly for optimal results (depending on the condition we are treating). Each treatment is layering upon the results of the previous treatment keeping the cascade of stimulated cells in the dermis and epidermis functioning optimally to relay the new collagen structure.


Treatment recommendations:

For maximum results with your skin needling treatments it is imperative that you have strong skin with good immunity and free water levels before we start your treatment. It is a good idea to do a course of strengthening facial treatments and be using prescriptive homecare to maximise results. By doing this, your skin has a healthy environment in which to lay down new collagen and nurture the stimulated cells, giving them a chance to do their job. Vitamins A and C are imperative to be used whilst undergoing these treatments.

Once your skin is strong and ready to go, depending on the condition we are treating, between three and six needling sessions, spaced out a month apart, are recommended.


Benefits of treatments:

  • Improved appearance in your skin’s tone,
  • Stronger cellular integrity.
  • Thickening of the cellular matrix giving you a firmer, bouncier skin.
  • Newly relayed collagen and elastin.
  • Stimulation of the skin to keep rejuvenating well after the treatment.
