Bioscor was one of the first clinics in Victoria to provide a medical-grade microdermabrasion treatment. With more than 15 years of experience, we have since perfected our signature treatment. We are confident that we can help you achieve clearer skin. We conduct a detailed consultation before starting with any skin treatment to understand the concerns of our patient in totality. This also helps us prescribe the most effective treatments that give the desired results. Our highly-skilled team of professionals are trained to deliver the best-in-class services.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a well-established method for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. It is a safe, controlled and painless procedure where a stream of the micro-crystals is delivered onto the skin’s surface to allow gentle exfoliation. This strips away the dead and flaking skin cells on the epidermis leaving new and healthy cells on the surface while stimulating the production of collagen. In simple terms, microdermabrasion breathes new life into your skin which also makes the absorption of skin products easier, giving you the best results. This process works towards removing the barrier of dead cells and the congestion of clogged pores, giving your skin a smoother and nourished appearance.
It is a highly-effective method of treating a range of skin concerns such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age Spots / Sun damage / Pigmentation
- Enlarged Pores
- Acne and acne scars
- Chicken pox scars
- Blackheads and whiteheads
Apart from treating a variety of skin issues, the microdermabrasion technique has several other benefits:
Helps Improve the Skin Texture
Microdermabrasion can be used to treat uneven and coarse skin. The process aims at promoting cell turnover which leads to improvement in the skin texture.
Microdermabrasion Requires Minimum Or No Downtime
This treatment method is non-invasive and requires minimum or no downtime. This simply means you can get back to your routine right after your treatment procedure!
Suitable For All Skin Types
Microdermabrasion is suitable for most skin types, and that also includes sensitive skin.
People often get scared of skin treatments fearing they might be painful. Microdermabrasion is a painless treatment that is also safe and reliable.
Microdermabrasion for Acne-prone Skin
The causes of acne are multi-factorial and different for each person. However, in most cases an increase of oil/sebum production leads to dead skin cells physically blocking pores which in turn causes blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and deeper lumps called cysts or nodules. While it may be tempting to extract a pimple, whitehead or blackhead yourself, most extractions are not performed properly and cause further inflammation trauma and possibly scarring your skin! Bioscor’s signature medical-grade microdermabrasion treatment package is different to those performed in your typical medi-spas and beauty salons. Our dermal clinicians are qualified to safely and effectively clear your pores without causing further damage to your skin. To learn more about what acne is, click here.
What Does Medical-grade Microdermabrasion Involve?
Our signature microdermabrasion is a comprehensive treatment performed by highly-trained dermal clinicians that involves four core modalities:
- Deep cleansing medical-grade microdermabrasion
- Extractions of impurities using a sterile curette
- Utilising LED wavelength lights to settle inflammation and target bacteria-causing acne
- Vitamin ‘A’ peel is anti-bacterial and manage oil secretions
As there are no quick-fixes for many cases of acne, you may need a series of this treatment to effectively treat acne and clear it.
Microdermabrasion is a simple treatment with a hassle-free procedure. However, just like other treatments, even this one needs some basic after-care. There may be slight redness and minimal flaking after the procedure so avoid the application of any exfoliating products on your skin for at least a week. At Bioscor, we see to it that all our patients get a follow-up consultation wherein our experts track the progress of the treatment and give after-care suggestions for recovery.
Where do I start?
As our microdermabrasion & extraction is medical grade, your first step is to book an appointment with one of our Doctors, Nurses or dermal therapists for a skin consultation. Once we identify the causes of your acne, we can help you address your skin issues and put your skin on the road to clear recovery.
