Skin Clinic

At Ruby’s we specialise in treating skin.
· Microdermabrasion—Microdermabrasion is a specialised procedure used for facial rejuvenation. This procedure is offered in specialised clinics such as the Yorkshire Clinic, Ruby is fully trained in this procedure. The procedure is performed using a machine that sprays fine crystals across the skin, removing the top layer of the skin (dead skin cells), and then vacuuming the crystals and skin away. The skin can be divided into 3 major layers:   Epidermis - The outer, barrier layer consisting mainly of dead skin cells. Dermis - The middle layer that contains the structural parts of the skin including collagen and elastic tissue. Subcutaneous tissue - The bottom layer that contains fat and larger blood vessels.

Changes in the epidermis appear before changes in the dermis. Microscopic examination of the epidermis after treatment reveals several changes that make this layer appear more healthy.

1. The thickness of the epidermis is increased because new cells are being produced more rapidly and the cells themselves are larger.
2. The cells of the lower layers of the epidermis are knit together in a more consistent "basket weave" configuration, instead of a haphazard arrangement.
3. The barrier function of the epidermis is disrupted in the first 24 hours causing the skin to be drier than usual.
However, after 7 days the skin is more hydrated than before.The dermis is the layer that is the most improved with microdermabrasion. Chemical changes occur immediately that cause the dermal layer to also become thicker and more healthy after a series of treatments.

· The thickness of the dermis is increased
· The number of collagen fibers are increased and they are thicker, more tightly packed, and more consistently organized
· The number of elastic fibers are increased and they are oriented vertically instead of horizontally giving the dermal layer more "spring".
· The number and size of fibroblasts, cells that make collagen, are increased.

Changes in the blood vessels show an increase in blood flow in the dermis, essentially feeding the reparative process.

An important part of creating this inflammatory response is the mechanical stretching of the skin cause by the negative-pressure component of the procedure.

In a nutshell, microdermabrasion works by causing a small amount of trauma to the skin, causing the skin to repair itself in a more organized fashion. This creates younger, healthier looking skin.

Microdermabrasion works best when performed as a series of treatments - typically six - every 7 to 10 days. Noticeable changes can be seen after the first treatment - usually smoother, healthier looking skin. After a series of treatments oiliness is decreased, dilated pores are less pronounced, and areas of thick skin are thinner. Fine wrinkles appear smoother
