Microdermabrasion is a well-known and credible treatment for many different skin problems.The principle behind microdermabrasion Melbourne is the idea that if you remove the stratum corneum (outermost layer of the epidermis), the body interprets this as a mild injury and reacts by replacing the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones.


    Preparation and After Care: Skin Peels and Microdermabrasion

    Preparation for your skin treatment:

    We may recommend that you prepare your skin for peeling by priming it with a Vitamin A product for at least 2 weeks before your first peel.  An appropriate product for your skin type will be recommended at your initial consultation.Vitamin A will help the peel solution penetrate your skin evenly and  accelerate healing.   Cease using  Vitamin A products  two days before your treatment.  Recommended vitamin A products  include Stieva A, Retrieve, Ultra MD Refining Serum and Ultra MD A2 Anti-Ageing Serum.

    If you are prone to cold sores, we may recommend that you take medication to prevent a breakout during your recovery.

    After your skin treatment:

    Avoid the use of exfoliating scrubs, astringents (toners), and active products including Vitamin A, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) and Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHA’s) for 5-7days after your treatment.

    Apply moisturiser regularly in the days following your treatment to maintain levels of skin hydration. We recommend Ultraceuticals Ultra Moisturiser Cream or Ultra Hydrating Gel as below. It is better to apply too much moisturiser than to let the skin dry out.

    Apply Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF30+.daily. This is essential following all treatments due to possible short term increases in light sensitivity of your skin. Direct sun exposure and tanning beds should be avoided for two weeks after your treatment, and preferably lifelong, as UV rays increase the likelihood of increased pigmentation in your skin.

    Make-up can be used as desired however some forms of makeup may be difficult to apply. Ultraceuticals Ultra Active Mineral Colour is ideal during the peeling phase.

    Avoid facial waxing, use of depilatory creams, electrolysis, IPL or any laser procedures for 2 weeks after your treatment.

    If any signs of irritation or grazing appear, keep the area clean and apply a soothing lotion such as Vaseline, Bepanthen, paw paw ointment or your favourite healing product 2-3 times a day or as needed to keep the area moist. Apply with a clean cotton bud and always check product instructions. Be aware of the potential for allergy to any product that you have not previously used. During your healing, it is safer only to use products that you are sure suit your skin.

    Allow healing to occur naturally. Do not pick or rub at flakes or scabs.

    Cold sores may occasionally develop during recovery from these treatments. Cold sores must be treated as a matter of urgency with prescription antiviral medication. Please contact your therapist at Heber Davis, or come into the practice, at the first sign of an outbreak to receive a prescription for this medication if you do not already have one.

    Any pain or prolonged redness is abnormal and might be an indication of infection. If this occurs please contact Heber Davis immediately on 95526277. Your therapist will continue to monitor your progress throughout your healing in order to ensure your complete recovery.
