Microdermabrasion is considered by many to be an ‘old school’ or more traditional technique. However, it should not be dismissed in favour of the many new and exciting machines on the market. In fact, within the global beauty industry, Microdermabrasion is still listed as one of the top non-surgical treatments that aesthetic operators conduct.
Microdermabrasion is one of the most successful skin rejuvenation treatments, effectively increasing the epidermal thickness and papillary dermal collagen. Used correctly Microdermabrasion can help fight against the effects of sun damage, ageing skin and even acne.
So how do you know if it is the right treatment for your business’s clients?
As the owner of a beauty salon, it is important that you can provide the right results to clients and build realistic expectations. At Universal Medical Aesthetics we concentrate on training all our clients on their new devices to ensure they are fully prepared to offer their clients the right advice for every treatment.
Here are a few tips to help you decide if microdermabrasion is the right treatment for your clients.
Identify your client’s skin
Identify your client’s Fitzpatrick type
Identify the client’s healing time
This may take a bit of questioning to narrow down, ideally, you should be asking if they scar easily and whether the scars discolour afterwards. Importantly, ask if they form keloid scars.
Identify the client’s sensitivity level
Do they have any major allergies or previous experiences with sensitivities? Many skin problems and diseases are contraindications with Microdermabrasion and so care should be taken with these clients.
Identify the client’s concerns and desired skin outcomes.
What is your client’s ultimate aim with this treatment? Their skin concerns and desired outcomes are one of the biggest indications as to whether microdermabrasion is the right tool for their skin rejuvenation treatment.
Once you have all this information you can easily determine whether microdermabrasion is the right treatment for that particular client. Just remember that for it to be the most effective, the treatment generally requires a series of procedures, between six to eight sessions.
Microdermabrasion is also an excellent after-treatment rejuvenation procedure for clients who have had other treatments conducted. Many of our beauty clients pair their high-quality IPL machines with microdermabrasion to deliver the best results. If you are interested in looking into Microdermabrasion or even if you are looking at IPL machines in Melbourne, we can help.
