Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation technique to improve the look of the skin by exfoliating the outer layer to reveal brighter, healthier and more younger-looking skin.
It works for all skin types on fine lines, acne scars, blocked pores and sun damage to create a healthy glow and clear skin.
Microdermabrasion is a softer form of dermabrasion, with less down-time afterwards. Unlike dermabrasion, which is not recommended for dark skin as it can lead to scarring, microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types.
It is a painless skin-treatment that can help with blemishes, sun spots and fine lines, as well as improving skin texture for a youthful, healthy glow.
If you have skin lesions, open sores or other medical conditions, such as a herpes breakout, you may have to wait until these have cleared up or been treated before microdermabrasion can be carried out.
Microdermabrasion works by spraying tiny exfoliating crystals onto the skin that remove away dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of collagen – the protein that is the building block of healthy skin, bones, muscles and other tissues.
It is sometimes combined with a light chemical peel for a greater effect.
Microdermabrasion is performed by two methods:
· Diamond-Tip Microdermabrasion:
A diamond-tipped handpiece is used to gently exfoliate dead skin cells which are then sucked up, like a vacuum. This type of microdermabrasion is safer to use than crystal microdermabrasion around the eyes.
· Crystal Microdermabrasion:
Small crystals are blasted onto the surface of the skin, which gently polishes the dead skin cells off, which are then sucked up.
The recovery time for microdermabrasion is fairly minimal, one of the major plus points of the procedure. Apart from slight swelling and redness you will be able to undertake your normal activities straight after the procedure. You should use a high SPF moisturizer afterwards to prevent damage to your new skin.
Bangkok has a wealth of high-quality clinics offering microdermabrasion treatments, and if you are on a business trip or holiday, it is one of the less invasive procedures you can have for rejuvenating the texture of your skin. The downtime is minimal too, which is something to be considered if you want to spend time in the city checking it out.
You are probably aware that Bangkok is one the most popular locations for all sorts of surgical, cosmetic, health and beauty treatments. Not only does it offer treatments that cost considerably less to international visitors than the prices they’d pay at home, but customer care and patient satisfaction are invariably higher here too.
As with any cosmetic procedure, we do suggest that you perform a little research yourself. Find out what you can about microdermabrasion to see if it is something that will give you the results you desire. Part of the process of receiving good treatment is to have realistic expectations, and to know what questions to ask of your practitioner.
No medical, cosmetic or surgical procedures can ever be guaranteed completely – we’re all individuals whose bodies react differently, and the people administering treatments are only human – so some may be better than others.
This is why it is important to check out any prospective clinics, and why Medical Departures does our own background checks on all of our clinic listings. We pay onsite visits, and verify credentials, including qualifications, international affiliations and professional memberships, as well as collating real patient reviews. If we’re happy with what we find, we make the listing on our website, and if we’re not, we don’t.
You can check out all this information on our individual listings for free on our website, with high-definition photos and virtual tours so you can see for yourself what the premises look like. Taken together, this information can help you make an informed choice with the peace of mind that you have found out as much as you can before you book.
The cost of microdermabrasion in Bangkok is around half the price it is in Australia.
