Gone are the days when a simple facial was all you would be offered at your local skin clinic. These days, it seems that every week there is a new treatment or procedure on offer. Microhydrabrasion is one of the new kids on the block, and is closely related to another deep exfoliating therapy, microdermabrasion.
Traditional microdermabrasion uses a wand with an exfoliating crystal tip that is passed over the skin to remove dead skin and stimulate new skin growth, plumping and smoothing the surface. Many people find it extremely effective at rejuvenating the skin, reducing scarring and minimising fine lines. However, for those with sensitive skin it can cause some irritation.
Microhydrabrasion, on the other hand, uses a diamond-tipped tool. The advantage of this tool is that it is a gentler form of exfoliation. Therefore it is much more appropriate for those with very sensitive skin.
The other added feature of microhydrabrasion is the element of water. While the diamond tip polishes the skin, taking off the dead cells, water jets are directed at the surface, moisturising and soothing the new skin.
