Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation treatment particularly beneficial to those whose skin has suffered due to the effects of the sun and aging. Microdermabrasion is designed to eliminate facial lines and spots such as acne while increasing the production of skin cells and collagen to give you clear, smooth, beautiful skin.

The procedure is performed using a hand piece that emits crystals onto the skin’s surface. Treatment takes between 30 minutes and an hour. For best results, you may need between five and twelve treatments, spaced between two and three weeks apart.

There are virtually no side effects from microdermabrasion, and patients can resume normal activities immediately following treatment. To learn more, contact the Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery.
