Frequently asked questions about Microdermabrasion:

 

This advanced treatment removes the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells, to reveal a fresher, younger-looking face. Over time, this repeated process stimulates the production of a new layer of skin cells, bringing with it an increased level of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin's appearance. Soul Care offers a new development that goes beyond micro-dermabrasion, combining diamond head exfoliation and solution infusion to deliver maximum results to any skin condition in half the time of any ordinary micro-dermabrasion.

Crystal or Diamond Microdermabrasion

If you could remove that outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells, you would see that just below the surface lies a fresher, younger-looking face. That's exactly what microdermabrasion treatments can do for you. By gently, precisely exfoliating the surface of your skin over a course of weekly sessions, treatments whisk away years of buildup, revealing a more beautiful you.

Brighter, clearer and more evenly toned skin is waiting for you in as little as four to six treatments. Over time, this repeated process stimulates the production of a new layer of skin cells, bringing with it an increased level of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin's appearance.

Crystal microdermabrasion systems have been around for several years and the industry has made good use of the excellent work that they can do. However, in the last couple of  years we have seen an important step forward with the introduction of  diamond tipped treatment heads

This process does two things, firstly it exfoliates the surface of the skin and, secondly, it stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and fibroblast (the underlying skins’ scaffolding). The aspiration (sucking) also draws blood to the surface of the skin giving a greater level of oxygenated blood in the dermis which automatically increases intercellular activity and the skins regeneration process.  Simple but extremely effective.

As we age, our production of collagen, elastin and fibroblast slows down,  but if we stimulate this production on a regular basis we will automatically have a stronger underlying substructure to the skin which will reduce the visible signs of ageing ie. lines and wrinkles.

Are diamonds really a girl’s best friend?

The answer is a simple yes, but let me explain why. 

Conventional microdermabrasion systems fire a crystal or other particle at the skin, however with diamond heads the technician gently ‘strokes’ the skin with a clever, diamond-tipped treatment head.  The tip of this treatment head is encrusted with real diamonds and it is these diamonds which achieve the exfoliation of the skin.

Microdermabrasion is effective in reducing fine lines, "crow's feet," age spots and acne scars. It stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen. It has proven to be a very popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure;

What Is Microdermabrasion?


Microdermabrasion is a mini procedure that involves the removal of the stratum corneum (top) layer of the skin; dead skin cells.  Microdermabrasion also promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis.  It can clean your pores incredibly and hinder any future breaks outs if used on a regular basis.  Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen net working to further even out skin texture and appearance.

 

Top

 

Are You a Candidate For Microdermabrasion?


The best candidates for microdermabrasion are individuals with acne prone and blotchy skin, small scars, rhytides, keratoses, large pores, milia, or sebaceous hyperplasia.  If you have sun damage or uneven texture and would like to improve the condition of your skin, you may be a good candidate for Microdermabrasion. 

Microdermabrasion is not recommended for those who have active keloids, undiagnosed lesions, recent herpes outbreaks, warts, active, weeping acne (stages 3 to 4), active rosacea, unstable diabetes or auto-immune system disorders.

Does Microdermabrasion Hurt?
 

Microdermabrasion does not hurt although it may sting a little around the eye area.  The patient normally works up to a level as they go to increase the penetration to the skin.  Your skin may feel a little hot and appear a little pink for the first day.

You should be perfectly fine that night.  Although really intense micro- dermabrasion treatments may leave you pink for several days.

What to Expect

During a Treatment?

People have attributed the sensation of a microdermabrasion treatment to a slight windburn. Although depending upon the level that you wish to reach the discomfort is usually quite minimal, if at all.  The treatments typically last 20 to 30 minutes for the face, if your treatment includes the neck and upper chest area, it may last up to an hour.

A normal course of microdermabrasion treatments varies between 4 to 8 at approximately 3-4 week intervals.  It is recommended that you schedule an additional treatment every 1 to 3 months to maintain your skin in excellent condition.  Most people actually feel and see a difference just after one or two treatments but schedule additional treatments to increase this improvement.

Top

After The Treatment?

A rehydrating toner, moisturiser and sunscreen is applied to your skin prior to leaving.

Some redness is expected after a treatment, however this is not likely to persist more than a few hours.  The sensation of having a mild windburn or sunburn will also pass after a few hours.  Applying a high quality moisturizer to re-hydrate the skin at this point will help.

Avoid direct sun exposure for 7 days after a treatment. We do stress the importance of using a high quality sun protectant product as well as minimizing sun exposure.  Exposure to UV radiation is one of the key factors in speeding the skin aging process.

Avoid Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, Glycolic Acid products and skin exfoliation scrubs for 72 hours both before and after a treatment.

Avoid full face make-up, i.e. liquid foundations or pressed powder foundations for 24 hours after a treatment.  Eye make-up, lipstick etc. may be applied immediately after a treatment.

What Results Are Gained From Microdermabrasion?


Your skin will feel vibrant and healthy and you will notice an immediate difference in your softer, smoother skin.  There is virtually no recovery time, no discomfort and you can return to work immediately. 

A series of microdermabrasion treatments can help reduce the look of fine lines and superficial wrinkles, remove thickened skin areas due to the impact of environmental factors and reduce the appearance of blemishes caused by sun damage.  Additionally, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of open pores by unclogging sebum (oil) build-up and eliminate white and black heads.

What Can't Microdermabrasion Do?


Please be advised, raised or deeply pitted skin areas (possibly from old severe acne scars) and darker pigmented areas will require multiple treatments.  I must advise that while Microdermabrasion does is not the cure all for heavily damaged skin, it is a non invasive technique for those of you who do not need a serious laser or chemical peel treatment.

How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?


A single microdermabrasion treatment costs NZ$75.00 or $300.00 for 6 treatments.

 

Top

 

When should I avoid Microdermabrasion?

 

You should NOT have a microdermabrasion treatment on the affected area if you have the following:

  • Undiagnosed lesions

  • Recent herpes outbreaks

  • Warts

  • Active, weeping acne (stages 3-4)

  • Active Rosacea

  • Unstable diabetes

  • Auto-immune system disorders

  • Some patients hyperpigment post-treatment. Lower pressures are used on follow-up treatments for these individuals.

  • Using Retin A religiously or just had a chemical peel

  • recently had laser surgery

Dermal Rolling or otherwise know as Collagen Induction Treatment 80.

 

Each roller costs $45, one is stored in clinic for clinic use (this is a longer needle for deeper penetration)

& one can be used at home up to 3 times a week. In clinic treatments can be performed 6 weekly at only $70. Active ingredients are used to suit your skin & there is also a home care range. This is what we have been waiting for!

A skin roller is a hand held device that uses 192 small needles to penetrate the top layer of skin without damaging it to promote the production of collagen and elastin. Needle size determines treatment.

Soul Care uses .5mm Salon roller with Titanium needles good for wrinkles and skin rejuvenation. We recommend the .2mm for home use.

Wrinkles are the result of lack of collagin and elastin in the skin. Collagen is the glue and the fabric that holds our skin and bodies together and is responsible for the skins mechanical characteristics such as strength, texture and resilience.

The benefit of stimulating your own collagen production is that collagen is deposited in an orderly, structured manner and that there is no risk of allergy, immune reaction or injection-induced infection.

Titanium or Surgical Stainless steel?

According to the Wikipedia this is true:
Surgical Stainless Steel is well suited for making surgical instruments. Since All Surgical Stainless steel contains nickel, those prone to allergic reactions to nickel should choose Titanium. Titanium has no nickel and is preferred for human body implants as there have been no known reactions to Titanium. It is widely preferred in body piercings for this reason. Please consider this when choosing Surgical Stainless Steel or Titanium.
If you know you react to nickel then choose Titanium. Soul Care uses only Titanium.

Re-model scarred uneven skin, induce thicker healthier skin.

 

Studies have shown that, when skin is injured, the body’s response to any injury releases cellular growth mediators that result in skin repair and increased cellular turnover. The response naturally also causes the increased production of ground substances such as collagen. This new injury gives the skin a chance to remodel older scar tissue but also leads to a healthier thicker skin which refines the wrinkling appearance of aging. Isn’t that what we all want?  Many appearance medicine practitioners have designed treatments to take similar advantage of stimulating the body’s natural cellular repair mechanisms.  For example, chemical peels, laser treatments and RF skin-tightening all ‘injure’ the skin in some way and then induce this response.  It has been the aim to balance the treatment to have a good effect without causing any unwanted damage: that is to stimulate the skin without undue injury. It has been discovered that multiple tiny injuries are one of the best ways to induce this cellular response without adverse effect.  Rolling the skin with tiny controlled length needle rollers can effectively achieve an amazing effect. The injury is well controlled by the technique and can be tailored to suit your needs. Lighter home treatments can be performed nightly up to 3 times per week.  Improvement can be expected in aging skin, fine wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and open pores. Results will vary between individuals and can not be guaranteed in any way.

 

Help penetration of skin products.

 

Many active skin care ranges are dependant on their therapeutic nutrients penetrating through the natural barrier put up by the skin. With needling, penetration through the top layers of the skin is much easier with claims that the topical application can penetrate up to 4000% more. Care has to be exercised because of the increased penetration and it is advisable to start with a lower percentage of active products.  Do not experiment and always ask your practitioner prior to use as to just what actives you can use with the home needling.

 

Uses

 

Needling is commonly used in reducing the appearance of fine wrinkling/aged skin.  It is great for the reduction in stretch marks and any scars, including trauma, dog bite, surgical, acne, ice-pick and chicken pox scars.  It can be used in all areas of the body and is safe in all skin types including darker skins. It also helps active products penetrate the skin.

To gain best results we advise that clients consider and discuss with their skin therapist combining complimentary skin products as part of a full programme of rejuvenation.
