How does microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion is one of the best anti-ageing skin care treatments available. This safe and painless treatment accelerates the exfoliation of dead skin cells which in turn stimulates new cell growth and the renewal of collagen. Using a gentle vacuuming system and diamond tips, microdermabrasion removes dull, dead skin cells, unclogs pores and polishes the skin.

It is a non-invasive treatment that can be used to treat a number of skin concerns, on any part of the body, with no downtime. Microdermabrasion perfectly prepares the skin’s surface for the enhanced infusion of active ingredients applied during a sonophoresis treatment. – www.asapskinproducts.com

What does microdermabrasion feel like?

Imagine a vacuum cleaner for your face! You’ll feel a light vacuum suction feeling over your face, with a slight abrasive tip that gently yet deeply exfoliates your skin. Some people even say it can feel like a cats tongue licking them, but with suction.

Do you use Diamond tips or Crystal microdermabrasion?

Our ASAP microplus+ machine uses diamond head microdermabrasion.

What is the difference between Diamond and Crystal microdermabrasion?

Diamond microdermabrasion is newer than the older crystal method. The tip of the microdermabrasion device is coated in a hard crushed-diamond-like substance (it is not made of actual diamonds) which is passed over the skin, and combined with the slight vacuum suction of the machine, it’s effective at removing the dead skin cells as well as the dirt and debris in the skin.

Is microdermabrasion painful?

Microdermabrasion is a safe and painless treatment when it’s performed by a trained technician.

Does microdermabrasion remove blackheads?

Microdermabrasion can gently yet effectively remove blackheads, acne and congestion. If you do require extractions for more stubborn blackheads, extra time will need to be allowed.

Will a microdermabrasion help with skin wrinkles?

With ongoing treatments, Microdermabrasion can help with fine lines and wrinkles. It is also helps with pigmentation, open pores and for the rejuvenation of dull tired skin.

How often can I get a microdermabrasion?

The treatment can be done as often as fortnightly or up to 8 weeks apart, depending on your desired outcome.

How long do the results last?

Results typically last about a month, depending on your age and homecare products your using in your skincare routine at home.

Do I need more than one treatment?

One microdermabrasion facial will leave you with noticeably smoother, tighter and more hydrated skin. It will also relieve you of dry itchy skin and help to clear up blackheads and breakouts you may have. That being said, One microdermabrasion will not leave you with permanent or lasting results.

We normally recommend at least a course of 6 treatments to leave you with the proper end result to see long term results, especially when your concerns are pigmentation, fine lines and scarring as they cannot be cured in one treatment.


How does sonophoresis work?

Sonophoresis is a relaxing, non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasonic (soundwave) technology. Following your microdermabrasion facial, a cocktail of vitamins in a hydrating mask base is applied to your freshly exfoliated and prepped skin and infused with sonophoresis.

It has been shown to increase the penetration and absorption of these active ingredients into the skin by 800% compared to manually massaging the products into your skin.

Does sonophoresis suit all skin types?

It is suitable for all skin types and delivers excellent results. For each individual, a personalised mask is designed for your certain skin concerns.

Can you have a microdermabrasion and sonophoresis in one treatment?

The results of sonophoresis are greatly improved after a microdermabrasion treatment as the dead skin barrier has been removed with the exfoliation of the facial. In fact, we perform a complimentary sonophoresis treatment to finish off all our standard microdermabrasion facials.

Is sonophoresis painful?

Definitely not. Sonophoresis is an ultra-relaxing, non-invasive treatment. This warm, massaging treatment increases skin circulation, leaving the skin feeling smooth, firm and hydrated. It is suitable for all skin types and delivers excellent results.
