Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation procedure, which helps repair skin damaged by ageing, sun exposure or even injuries. A professional Microdermabrasion machine uses a dual action of gentle abrasion and suction to remove the stratum corneum, the dead outermost layer of skin.
The first process uses fine crystals, often within a crystal encrusted wand to loosen dead cells from the outer layers of skin. This step creates a smooth, soft and fresh skin texture while making the face appear younger.
The second phase uses a vacuum closed-loop suction device to remove the fine crystals from the skin surface. The suction device also removes the dead skin loosened by the previous step, along with surface oil and debris. Finally, tiny keratin plugs are suctioned up, which if left, can cause blackheads and acne conditions. Microdermabrasion is primarily used to improve skin condition, from rough, dry or uneven skin textures to soft and younger skin.
The treatment is non-invasive and does not require anaesthetic or any surgical procedures while providing a range of benefits. While traditional Microdermabrasion uses aluminium oxide crystals, UMA offers a revolutionary natural alternative. The substantial difference in suction technology is what sets the Microdermabrasion devices created by UMA, apart from competitor machines. They are the professional choice for any salon or spa. To stay competitive within the beauty industry, salons need to offer clients with the latest advances in technology. Customers increasingly want a non-surgical, efficient and pain-free methods of skin care.
With a professional Microdermabrasion machine, your salon is investing in a quality anti-ageing machine. As Microdermabrasion works on all skin colours, sensitivity and colours, it provides a broad range of benefits for a variety of clients.
Universal Medical Aesthetics also offers Hydrodermabrasion machines, which provide an alternative treatment to Microdermabrasion. Hydrodermabrasion takes its name from the word ‘hydrate’ meaning to ‘to take up moisture’. Using the natural process of water combined with oxygen and diamond crystals, skin is effortlessly exfoliated. This ability is the difference between traditional Microdermabrasion devices or other treatments like chemical peeling or laser/IPL.
UMA’s machines offer a range of treatments that can handle a variety of conditions, including:
General rejuvenation treatment sessions will usually require only six treatments for the full effect to take place. For more severe conditions, such as acne, scarring or extreme pigmentation, clients may require more treatments to receive the full benefit.
UMA’s Microdermabrasion machines provide quick, efficient treatments that provide clients with immediate effects. They mimic a micro-massage by stimulating healthy reactions in deep layers of the skin. With no pre or post session downtime, clients can come in and receive treatment during their lunch breaks. For the best results, it is recommended salons offer clients multiple treatments over time, generally every two or three weeks. Each session usually takes around 30 minutes, with the frequency of the therapy depending on the skin condition.
Using UMA’s professional Microdermabrasion machine, beauty businesses can offer the latest advanced technology to clients. Universal Medical Aesthetics’ devices are less disruptive to the epidermis and so suitable for a broad range of skin types. Traditional Microdermabrasion devices use sharp crystals and exfoliate using a cutting pattern of movement. UMA’s devices, instead, provide a more polished approach which is much less aggressive. Due to the gentle nature of the treatment, salons can conduct more frequent treatments, increasing client satisfaction.
