Ultra Skin Resurfacing – Microdermabrasion is a medical technique to help remove dead skin cells which leaves the skin feeling smooth supple and vibrant. This treatment is used on both the face and body to improve the overall look, feel, texture and tone of the skin. This treatment assists in smoothing fine lines, reducing hyperpigmentation, refining large pores and helps to soften acne scarring.
Why Ultraceuticals Microdermabrasion?
Over time, our skin cell turnover slows down; this results in dull, lifeless, uneven skin tone. Ultra Skin Resurfacing will remove the dead outermost layer of the skin, resulting in a more youthful healthy, polished skin. Microdermabrasion will encourage cells in the lower layers of the skin to reproduce encouraging new cell growth which allows the skin to appear more vibrant and healthy. This treatment is a wonderful alternative or compliment to chemical peels.
It is recommended to treat the whole face, neck and décolletage. Hands, arms, back may also be treated, even the whole body.
A UltraSonophoresis Vitamin Infusion is included with every Ultra Skin Resurfacing Treatment. This involves the use of micro fine sound waves to allow the penetration of Vitamins A, C, and Niacinamide. This enables enhanced product penetration therefore delivering outstanding results with every treatment.
Why Ultraceuticals Microdermabrasion?
Ultraceuticals Microdermabrasion is the only Microdermabrasion machine that is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia. The machine uses diamond chipped wands of varying micron size (fine medium and coarse wands) along with controlled vacuum suction that allows varying degrees of abrasion. There are absolutely no crystals involved in the treatment and therefore minimal risk of particle contamination.
Leading plastic surgeons and dermatologists regard the Ultra Skin Resurfacing system as being more gentle and effective, so treatments may be performed in a lunch break.

How should I prepare My Skin?
With all Ultraceuticals skin treatments it is preferred that a full skin care regimen is followed. This ensures that the maximum benefit of the treatment is achieved and that results are optimised. Please ensure you have had a customised skin care programme that has been prescribed by your skin specialist as the majority of results are achieved by homecare use.
If prescription strength retinol (Retinoic Acid) is being used or Ultraceuticals Ultra A Perfecting Serum, it is advisable to discontinue use 48hours prior to the treatment. This reduces the potential risk of increased down time.
How will my skin look following my Ultraceuticals Microdermabrasion Treatment?
Following treatment your skin will appear pink and luminous. There may be areas of the skin that are red and it is normal for ‘hot spots’ to appear. These are areas of the skin that are redder than others and sometimes some flaking of the skin may occur. This is normal and should not be of any concern. Is it important at this time to follow all post care instructions and ensure Ultra Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF 30+ is worn at all times to prevent hyperpigmentation from occurring. Fine scratching of the skin may also occur and should heal within 24-48hours. If there is anything you are concerned with following your treatment please contact your Ultraceuticals skin care professional.
