Project Description

The CAPS Clinic and My Genesis (Canberra ACT) specialise in chemical skin peels Canberra and skin rejuvenation treatments such as Microdermabrasion.

Chemical skin peels and Microdermabrasion are used to treat conditions such as acne, acne scarring, sun damage, and discolouration and for general rejuvenation of the skin. The treatment is designed to gently stimulate activity within the skins layers to nourish, repair and rebuild the structures of the skin.

The skin must be prepared correctly prior to a peel to ensure the skin is functioning optimally; this in turn will maximise treatment results. Peels and Microdermabrasion are used in conjunction with a long-term skin care program to build strength within the skin.

Peels

At the CAPS Clinic we utilise different peeling agents varying in strength and type suited to treat conditions such as acne, acne scarring, sun damage, discolouration, wrinkles and for general rejuvenation of the skin. Peels are designed to gently stimulate activity to nourish, repair and rebuild the structures of the skin. Peels are best used in conjunction with long term active skincare, prescribed by your Dermal Clinician, to accelerate and enhance results.

A mild tingling sensation and warmth can often be felt. This usually subsides within a few minutes of application.

The number of peels will depend on the condition of you skin. Generally we recommended 4-6 peels with 2-4 weeks in between each treatment. To maintain results we recommend a peel every 3 months.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation procedure used for rejuvenation of the face, hands and body.  It can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with therapeutic skincare and laser/light treatments.

The procedure is performed using a brush-like tip which sweeps over the skin to exfoliate the topmost layer. The vacuum component of the machine stimulates blood flow, cleans the pores and removes the skin debris. The increased blood flow and stimulation to the skin’s surface encourages collagen formation thus firming and toning the epidermis as well.

There is no discomfort associated with the treatment however you may feel the brush and suction as it sweeps over the skin.

Microdermabrasion Canberra works best when performed as a series of treatments. We recommend a course of 6 with 2 weeks in between each treatment. Noticeable changes such as smoother, healthier looking skin can be seen after the first treatment however a series of treatments will result in an overall softening and refinement of skin texture, pores, and wrinkles.
