We all know the saying, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, well, once you have your first ClairDerm Microdermabrasion you’ll be saying “crystals are a girl’s best friend!”. We can’t get enough of this staple exfoliation treatment, but for those who have never had one, we’ve broken down ClairDerm Microdermabrasion into a basic step by step guide with everything you need to know.
What is ClairDerm Microdermabrasion?
Put simply, Micro means small and dermabrasion refers to a mechanical or physical exfoliation. Put these two words together to form Microdermabrasion and you a get a treatment consisting of gentle exfoliation. What makes this type of exfoliation gentle, is its ability to only remove the uppermost dead skin layers. ClairDerm is the manufacturer of the device and with over 23 years in the industry, they are the leading and most trusted Aesthetic Equipment provider in the business.
What does the treatment involve?
ClairDerm Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, gentle process of using corundum crystals accelerated onto the skin’s surface to abrade layers of dead and damaged skin cells. On completion of the abrasive process, a vacuum suction whisks away the crystals and the unwanted abraded skin particles leaving your skin smoother, brighter, firmer and with a course of procedures, blemish free. By removing the top layer of skin, the body naturally replaces the lost skin cells with healthy, new cells. Blood flow is also stimulated improving cell production and skin elasticity.
What are the benefits?
First and foremost, ClairDerm Microdermabrasion improves the texture and tone of your skin, even after just one treatment, you’ll notice smoother skin! When performed by a professional, this treatment can fade pigmentation, reduce congestion and stimulate collagen production. Generally, this treatment is recommended monthly to maintain healthy and even skin.
Am I suitable for this treatment?
The best thing about ClairDerm Microdermabrasion is that it is suitable for all skin types! Most people will tolerate and benefit from the treatment, however, if you have sensitive or problematic skin it is important to seek a highly experienced professional for treatment as oppose to trying an at-home DIY session. An experienced professional can assess your skin type and adjust the device to a suitable intensity. For example, ClairDerm Microdermabrasion can be irritating to those with severe acne, this is why we also recommend you do not try these treatments by yourself at home.
Is this treatment safe?
As mentioned, if the treatment is performed by an experienced and trained professional, then ClairDerm Microdermabrasion is completely safe. If the procedure is performed incorrectly or attempted at-home there is risk of redness, dry skin and irritation.
