Enhances the penetration of Skin Products

When done by a qualified skin professional, microdermabrasion is a safe and noninvasive treatment which can progressively improve and resurface the skin over 5 - 10 weeks. Diamond microdermabrasion is used at Dublin Vitality Center as part of the exclusive 4 Step Anti-Aging Skin Rejuvenation programme. Diamond Microdermabrasion tips are actually thousands of tiny diamond particles which are used to abrade away dead skin and sun damage from the upper dermal layer.

Progressive Skin Resurfacing

Medical Microdermabrasion is the gradual removal of layers of skin using advanced mechanical abrasion techniques which are designed to remove dead cells and to reveal the younger skin underneath. The process also encourages new cell production, which means that, not only do you benefit from the removal of the damaged skin in the upper dermal layer, but your skin is encouraged to produce new cells and collagen.

Microdermabrasion For Men

Microdermabrasion is the number one skin treatment recommended to improve the appearance and texture of male skin. It specifically helps reduce shaving rash and and blocked follicles. It is often followed by diathermy for the removal of unsightly broken red veins around the nose. Diamond microdermabrasion uses a mechanical device with a hand held wand which is surfaced by thousands of tiny diamond particles. These are used to gently abrade away dead skin and suck collagen up to the dermal layer resulting in younger looking skin over a number of weeks. The treatment is pleasant and pain free.

Microdermabrasion Creates Smoother Younger Looking Skin

At Dublin Vitality Center, medical microdermabrasion is combined with the most advanced skin science products. Hyaluronic acid is applied to the skin after the treatment. This enables 1000% more moisture to be locked into the skin . The stratum corneum is the outermost layer of the epidermis, comprised of 15 to 20 cell layers, functioning to protect the underlying dermal layer. Microdermabrasion gradually removes these layers to reveal younger skin underneath. When the stratum corneum is moist (full of water), it is flexible, smooth, and translucent. Microscopically, the surface is smoother and less irregular after each microdermabrasion treatment. When moist with water and hyaluronic acid, stratum corneum cell plates swell and plump which means that wrinkles and fine lines are instantly plumped out.

Microdermabrasion for Increased Collagen Production

At the dermal level, the major protein is collagen, a glycine and proline-rich helical protein making up approximately 90% of dermal collagen . The stratum corneum consists of approximately 40% protein and 40% water; the rest is mainly lipid. The skin is held together by many fibres. This connective tissue are composed of collagen fibers, elastic fibers, and an interfibrillar gel of glycosaminoglycans. However, as we age we lose this collagen and the skin becomes looser. Active peptides and collagen are applied to the skin after microdermabrasion at Dublin Vitality Center. But thats not all, due to the mild cellular trauma created by this wonderful treatment, the skin produces natural collagen. This results in younger looking skin which looks natural and hydrated.

Microdermabrasion Aftercare

After microdermabrasion, you must protect the skin with sun protection factor 30 for daily wear. An advanced broad spectrum SPF factor 30 is best. The most advanced SPFs are designed to protect skin even from the damage caused by environmental toxins and radiated glare from long term exposure to PCs and other devices , as well as uva and uvb light. This advanced SPF is now available exclusively at Dublin Vitality Center. It is suitable for men and women and can reduce rosacea (facial redness) and pigmentation, with regular applications. It is also an ideal primer.
