Micro-dermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that removes the outer skin layer and debris to reveal the fresher, younger skin cells beneath. Resulting in firmer, more youthful looking skin. It is a non-surgical, non-chemical and non-invasive method of skin resurfacing. This shedding of the outer layer unclogs pores, keeps skin clean and helps reduce acne breakouts. Micro-dermabrasion buffs the skin of fine lines and pigmentation while refining the texture and hue. Repeated treatment yield excellent results from scar revision whether from acne, chicken pox or surgery and addresses deep discoloration, melanises and tattoo reduction. Repeating this process stimulates the production of new skin cells and increases the levels of collagen and elastin which improves the appearance of the skin, leaving the skin softer, smoother, fresher looking and boosts skin clarity.
Laser is a modern method of therapy. The laser converts electrical energy into a form of light energy that is transmitted by means of specially designed lasers. Low power lasers do not generate heat, therefore when the laser contacts your skin, you experience no warmth or burning.
HealthPoint Laser Clinic uses the MediSpa cold laser, which applied to specific areas on the face and body, revitalizes the skin resulting in visible improvements to your general appearance. It does this by:
Skin changes are related to environmental factors, genetic makeup, nutrition and other factors. The greatest single factor, though, is sun exposure. This can be seen by comparing areas of your body that have regular sun exposure with areas that are protected from sunlight. Naturally, as we age, our skin undergoes many changes.
What happens when skin ages?
Signs of Aging Skin
New skin cells are created in the skin's lower layer, the dermis. Over time, cells migrate to the surface of the skin. During their 27 day journey, they die and become saturated with keratin. Keratin is important because it protects the skin from outside elements. During aging, the natural process of skin erosion becomes uneven, which gives skin a dry and rough character.
should always be done after cleansing the skin. Exfoliation is important
for both women and men. For men, it exposes the hair follicles, allowing for a better shave. It
is possible to overly exfoliate, which dries and irritates the skin.
To understand the process of skin rejuvenation it is important to review basic skin anatomy.
Skin is composed of three primary layers: Epidermis, Dermis and Hypodermis. Each layer contains connective tissue with collagen fibers to give support and elastin fibers to provide flexibility and strength.
Epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin and forms the waterproof, protective wrap over the body's surface. Skin cells, pigment cells and proteins are all found in this layer.
The epidermis contains no blood vessels. Cells in the deepest layers are nourished by diffusion from blood capillaries extending to the upper layers of the dermis. The main type of cells making up the epidermis are merkel cells and keratinocytes, with melanocytes and langerhan cells also present.
The epidermis can be further subdivided into the following strata (beginning with the outermost layer): corneum, granulosum, spinosum, basale. Cells are formed through mitosis at the basale layer. The daughter cells move up the strata changing shape and composition as they die due to isolation from their blood source. The cytoplasm is released and the protein keratin is inserted. They eventually reach the corneum and slough off. This process is called keratinization and takes place within about 27 days. The keratinized layer of skin is responsible for keeping water in the body and keeping other harmful chemicals out, making the skin a natural barrier to infection.
Dermis is the layer of skin beneath the epidermis that consists of connective tissue and cushions the body from stress and strain. The dermis is tightly connected to the epidermis by a basement membrane. It also harbors many nerve endings that provide the sense of touch and heat. It contains hair follicles, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, lymphatic vessels and blood vessels. The blood vessels in the dermis provide nourishment and waste removal to its own cells as well as the stratum basale of the epidermis.
The dermis is structurally divided into two areas: a superficial area adjacent to the epidermis, called the papillary region, and a deep thicker area known as the reticular region. The papillary region is composed of loose connective tissue. It is named for its finger-like projections called papillae, that extend toward the epidermis. The papillae provide the dermis with a "bumpy" surface that inter-digitates with with the epidermis, strengthening the connection between the two layers of skin.
The reticular region lies deep in the papillary region and is usually much thicker. It is composed of dense irregular connective tissue, and receives its name from the dense concentration of collagen, elastin, and reticular fibers that weave through it. These fibers give the dermis properties of strength, extensibility and elasticity.
Hypodermis is not part of the skin, and lies below the dermis. Its purpose is to attach the skin to underlying bone and muscle as well as supplying it with blood vessels and nerves. It consists of loose connective tissue and elastin. The main cell types are fibroblasts, macrophages and adipocytes, the fat cells. The hypodermis contains 50% of all body fat and serves as padding and insulation for the body.
