Myth: Better results come after more aggressive microdermabrasion treatments.
No, it’s not about aggressive treatments at all. This is a gradual, cumulative process that doesn’t happen in just a single session. The correct application of each procedure will give a more satisfying result within four to six treatments. Depending on the skin issues, fortnightly will show results followed by monthly or tri-monthly treatments to keep the skin fresh and improved.
Myth: Microdermabrasion can cause micro-tears in your skin
You've probably heard that the presence of apricot kernels in skincare products can do the same thing, so it's only easy to assume that using microcrystals can also cause small tears in your skin.
The crystals used by Gem Skin’s microdermabrasion are crystals called ‘corundum’ which is crushed up sterilised gem stone particles that are as strong as Safire stones. Their mechanism rejuvenates through ‘micro trauma’ which stimulates collagen and elastin, it is non-piercing.
Our microdermabrasion treatments are meant to smooth coarse-textured skin, not harm it, and in the case that we think it's not the right treatment for you, we'll make sure to say so during your consultation.
