The DOC Clinic offers the latest technology in microdermabrasion to Melbourne patients. Known as hydro microdermabrasion, the treatment combines the techniques of mechanical, product- and liquid-based microdermabrasion. We also offer ultrasonic skin treatment options to help repair and renew skin.
Using the powerful effect of water through water jets, a hydro microdermabrasion treatment targets the outer layer of skin to exfoliate and reveal a smoother, more even texture. Our therapists utilise the award-winning Bio Hydroderm Trinity.
The benefits of microdermabrasion using this technology can include freshening the appearance and texture of the skin, as well as increasing the absorption and penetration of active ingredients into the skin. A hydrodermabrasion facial can even be ideal for rejuvenating the skin for one-off special events such as weddings. The treatment can also be combined with other peel and laser treatments as part of a complete skincare regime.
An average hydro microdermabrasion treatment should take 15-45 minutes*. It is recommended that you have a course of treatments to continue to stimulate collagen growth, helping to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
Yes, hydro dermabrasion can be an effective treatment for signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles. The treatment exfoliates the surface of the skin while infusing it with hydration, helping to reduce wrinkles and give skin a more youthful appearance.
If you’re suffering from enlarged pores that are frequently becoming congested and causing blackheads to develop, hydro dermabrasion may be a suitable solution. In addition to causing blackheads, enlarged pores can also be unsightly, leading many to seek treatment to reduce pore size. Fortunately, hydro dermabrasion can tighten pores, minimising their appearance and helping to prevent future development of blackheads.
Yes, hydro dermabrasion can be performed on oily and acne-prone skin. In fact, treatment can help to improve acne and reduce production of oil by deeply cleansing and hydrating the skin.
As it gently exfoliates the skin, hydro dermabrasion can help to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation by evening out complexion and smoothing skin. This can lead to a reduction in dark patches of skin, age spots, sun damage and other forms of hyperpigmentation.
The Bio Hydroderm Trinity device used for microdermabrasion at our Melbourne clinics has created a new standard in comfort when it comes to hydro dermabrasion treatment. Much like an ultrasonic skin treatment, it is relaxing, gentle, and completely comfortable.
The Bio Hydroderm Trinity enables The DOC Clinic to perform the most progressive new service in wet/dry microdermabrasion acne treatment, wrinkle treatment, and more. It incorporates a clear plastic rounded tip that glides over the surface of the skin, effortlessly abrading the skin and vacuuming the impurities away within the loop system, without causing trauma.
The style of solid abrasive discs, essentially flat and round in shape, are embedded with industrial diamond or corundum crystals. These discs allow for an expedient and consistent skin exfoliation. This new technology in hydro dermabrasion treatment also means the consistency is no longer reliant upon the technician’s pressure of the device on the skin.
The system used for our microdermabrasion in Melbourne gently vacuums the skin to lift it towards the abrasion disc. The discs have strategically placed holes to allow for skin hydration fluids to finish the exfoliation process as well as providing cooling and hydration to the skin surface.
The hydration fluids used in the process can be distilled saline or water that has been infused with minerals and vitamins, making it a suitable option for those with highly sensitive skin.
One of the major hydrafacial benefits is the lack of downtime. Skin will be slightly pink afterwards, but results may be visible immediately. With less swelling and minimal redness, the water fully hydrates and moisturises the new exposed skin layer, helping to remove years of built-up dead skin and impurities. Cold compresses can assist on the rare occasion that redness continues for a day or if sensitive skin around the eye area becomes swollen.
A hydro microdermabrasion facial is usually painless and doesn’t irritate the skin greatly. A few patients may experience some slight tightness and redness of the skin, which may last for an hour or two following treatment. Treatments using peel products may prolong any redness, however.
The Bio Hydroderm Trinity can offer longer-lasting results than traditional microdermabrasion techniques and tool usage – another of the many benefits of microdermabrasion with this technology. At The DOC Clinic, Dr Ed Omarjee is educated in the process of both ultrasonic skin treatment and hydrodermabrasion with the Bio Hydroderm Trinity.
