The Miracle Microdermabrasion machine was developed by Intouch Medical in 2001. We had four main objectives, it had to be simple to use, reliable, small enough to be carried and to fit on a standard trolley. Most importantly, it had to be affordable for beauty therapy clinics knowing that Microdermabrasion is a core treatment for most Clinics and which is able to be combined with many other treatments.
We fully support the machines providing servicing, parts, consumables and training as well as marketing material for the machine.
A few years on, with only minor aesthetic changes to the machine and over 100 units sold in New Zealand the Miracle Micro-dermabrasion machine has proved to be immensely popular, everything it was designed for and more.
What is MicroDermabrasion?
Micro-Dermabrasion a non surgical aesthetic procedure that uses crystals to strike and exfoliate the surface of the skin. Originally developed in the early 1980's as a further development of dermabrasion, Micro-dermabrasion in its truest definition is in fact "polishing of the skin". The idea being to provide a deep exfoliation treatment and an alternative to chemical peels.
By removing the outer layers of the skin which are older, drier and in most cases dead, younger skin cells are revealed. This makes the skin look newer, fresher and "younger". The appearance change is immediate and although the treatment is sometimes accompanied by minor, temporary reddening of the skin this will usually abate within a few hours, meaning that in most cases the treatment can be performed with relatively little or no downtime and is a perfect "lunchtime treatment" for busy clients who want excellent, visible but above all quick results.
Treatments can be done as a one off, however we recommend a client receive a series of 4-6 treatments followed by a series of "maintenance" treatments at monthly intervals.
What are the benefits of MicroDermabrasion?
Aside from what we have covered above in relation to removing dead, dull outer layers of the skin to expose younger, fresher, healthier looking skin, there are a number of benefits to Micro-Dermabrasion.
- Tighter Skin
- Reduction in T-Zone oiliness
- Temporary pore size reduction
- Assistance in the treatment of acne
- Collagen Stimulation
- Scar Reduction
- Improvement in Hyper pigmentation
By receiving a series of treatments the results are improved and longer lasting with a visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles being one of the most obvious long term results, accompanied of course by younger, fresher, healthier looking skin.
Although traditionally used exclusively on the face and neck area microdermabrasion has proven itself effective all over the body, in particular on the backs of hands where the skin is usually thicker and rougher due to the rough and tumble our hands experience in day to day life. The Miracle Microdermbrasion Machine works very well to help remove these outer unnatractive layers of skin especially around the joints. This allows moisturisers and other creams to be absorbed more readily resulting in smoother, younger looking hands.
Miracle Microdermabrasion is also very effective in treating superficial skin conditions like Kertosis Pilaris (follicular keratosis) often referred to as "chicken skin" and found mainly on the back and outside of the upper arms. KP is a buildup of Keratin which causes the hair follicle to become blocked thus often trapping a hair inside. Microdermabasion works to remove these buildups over the follicle and in doing so increase the cellular turnover in the skin resulting in a smoother, more even appearance. Maintenance treatments will be required in most cases.
"Tea Stain" like sunspots are also effectively treated with a course of microdermbrasion with the spot either being reduced in size and colour or removed completely.
We offer basic and advanced training for microdermabrasion. Basic training involves teaching therapists about micro-dermabrasion, it's history and its application, what to avoid and what results clients can expect as well as teaching them the correct technique to apply to the treatment.
Topics covered in advanced training include:
- Body Treatments
- Treating Stretch Marks
- Treating Skin Imperfections
- Treating Pigmentation
