Microdermabrasion is a common beauty treatment but did you know that these so called “super facials” can have a detrimental effect on your skin, particularly in Australia, where the sun is known to be so harmful to our skin.
In this article, we discuss the effects that microdermabrasion has had on celebs looking to keep their youthful looks and how it has cost them a lot more than they bargained for.
The True Impact Of Microdermabrasion
Sophie Anderton – a UK model who earned 30 thousand pounds a week from her beauty – was just one celeb turning to microdermabrasion coupled with chemical peels to fight off the signs of ageing. According to The Daily Mail,
“Sophie was left with paper-thin skin which meant that when she exposed herself to the sun afterwards, she developed dark brown blotches all over her face. It took months of intensive treatment with specialist creams to get her skin back to normal.”
Microdermabrasion removes the top layers of skin cells by effectively “sanding” them away. The issue with this, according to UK Dermatologist, Dr Lowe is that,
“Sunscreens need to adhere to the cells on the top layer of the skin. If you remove that layer, the sunscreens cannot “stick” properly to create a protective barrier,” warns Dr Lowe.

We know that sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature ageing and without being able to properly protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays, microdermabrasion can inadvertently cause more harm than good.
Is there a safe alternative to microdermabrasion to achieve more youthful looks? Facial Rejuvenation using PicoWay Resolve is a safe and effective alternative.
PicoWay Resolve Explained
PicoWay Resolve treats pigmentation, skin irregularities and the signs of ageing, allowing you to take care of minor imperfections and restore your skin to a more youthful appearance.
The Resolve is a breakthrough Picosecond Holographic Fractional technology for treatment of benign pigmented legions such as freckles, age spots, lentigines and more. Holographic Laser: this is the first medical laser that focuses the energy beneath the surface of the skin without damaging the skin. Fractional: means the laser is divided up into tiny columns of energy called micro-thermal treatment zones, leaving healthy skin around the treated zones for faster healing.
The Resolve breaks down the pigment into the tiniest particles through ultra-fast delivery of highly concentrated laser, assisting your body to clear the pigment faster. The ultra-short pulses, measured in picoseconds (a trillionth of a second), optimise the delivery of energy to the target area ensuring the pigmentation is effectively treated.
There is no downtime or pain with the Resolve - you can go straight back to your normal schedule following treatment. A treatment generally takes around 20 minutes so you can easily have it done in your lunch break.
