Hydradermabrasion vs. Microdermabrasion

An overview on the difference between Microdermabrasion and Hydradermabrasion


In recent years, Microdermabrasion has become a household name – ‘the’ skincare treatment for those who wish to improve the look and feel of their skin.  Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skincare procedure that whilst exfoliating the skin promotes the production of new cells, and stimulates the growth of collagen to improve the skin’s tone and appearance.Hydradermabrasion explained

Microdermabrasion Procedure

There are several microdermabrasion systems on the market, some utilising minute crystals (crystal microdermabrasion) that are sprayed through the microdermabrasion wand onto the skin as the professionally trained aesthetician glides the wand across the client’s skin.   Then there are other systems utilising a diamond-tipped wand (diamond microdermabrasion), these tips are created in varying textures, rather like that of fine sandpaper and are chosen depending on the individual clients’ skin type and thickness.   Both systems do the same job, and as the wand exfoliates the skin tissue a vacuum within the wand suctions up the dead skin cells leaving the skin beautifully soft and smooth.

Though a non-invasive procedure, some patients could experience minor skin irritation, dryness and slight redness following the microdermabrasion treatment, but his will disappear within a short period time.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion treatments exfoliate the skin removing sun damaged dead tissue and thus leave your skin smoother, softer and with a fresh more youthful looking glow.   Other benefits include reduction of scars, dark spots and skin discoloration. Also, this skincare treatment stimulates blood flow which can increase collagen production.

Hydradermabrasion – What is it?

Move over Microdermabrasion, hello Hydradermabrasion – the latest in skincare technology.  Hydradermabrasion utilises the natural healing powers of water and oxygen to effortlessly exfoliate the skin without the use of hard crystals or abrasive texture wands, generating deeply hydrated and healthier looking skin.

Hydradermabrasion Procedure

Jet Peel have created a crystal free dermabrasion applicator, a hand held nozzle that works by utilising a high-velocity jet of water combined with oxygen.   This completely natural combination of micro droplets of water is dispersed from the nozzle at high speed, striking against the skin and thereby removing any dead skin cells with little effort and absolutely no pain to the client, deeply exfoliating and rejuvenating the skin.

Hydradermabrasion is an amazing step forward in skincare technology with highly effective results seen after just one treatment Regina Ilankovan

Benefits of Hydradermabrasion
Hydrodermabrasion treatments are highly effective in improving the skin’s texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and giving deeper hydration to the skin.   Blood circulation is improved which leads to greater collagen production and thus skin tone improvement.  Other skin-related conditions that can be improved by Hydrodermabrasion treatments are scarring, acne, unwanted pigmentation, blackheads and puffy eyes. Supplements and nutrients can also be administered using the Jet-M system.

Skincare specialist Regina Ilankovan enthuses about the Hydradermabrasion Jet-M Jet Peel system which is offered by The Wentworth Clinic, a clinic that offers it’s patients Hydradermabrasion as an upgraded and effective option to microdermabrasion.

It goes without saying that our skin is the first thing that people see, so maintenance is a must, but always remember to use only qualified professionally trained aestheticians, and meet face to face for a personal consultation prior to any skincare treatment.
