I thought this topic might come up! It was shown on Today Tonight yesterday. I am actually going to an information evening on this next week and will be able to give more feedback then.
This technique has been used in other areas of medicine with good results eg. burns. Therefore, I believe it is probably safe. I don't know how much evidence there is to support it as a Cosmetic procedure. However, there are plenty of things we do in Medicine that are not completely scientifically proven. It costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to conduct proper medical trials and generally these trials are funded by the drug companies that own the drug. Therefore, often the trials are potentially biased anyway.
I have met someone that has had this procedure and I did notice their skin looked better before they told me they had it done. However, that is not proof - it is only an anecdotal observation.
I would like to see some histological evidence. In other words, a patient has a biopsy of skin before and after treatment. If this technique has merit then we should at least see some changes under the microscope.

I attended an information evening on this new technology on Monday. The procedure is quite exciting and I suspect it will have a role to play in aesthetic medicine. It is already being used for wound healing, leg ulcers, sports medicine for tendon injureies and in orthopaedic operations. However, the evidence for use for cosmetic purposes is mainly anecdotal ie. based on observations rather than proper clinical studies.
The general feeling is that the procedure can help improve skin texture, skin thickness and general skin quality. It is not designed to replace existing procedures such as botox or fillers but rather it is an extra tool or a procedure to be used in conjunction with these other modalities.
The main areas that I think it may be useful for are lower eyelid crepiness, tear troughs, neck rejuvenation and improving skin quality in the cheeks.

Yesterday my sister and I had our first Medical Microdermabrasion session on our face and neck.
As I watched Nikki start the process I immediately began to notice a change to my sisters skin, it started to look fresh, clean and plump and even had a glow to it. I was not sure if I was imagining this change but the more Nikki did the change was obvious.
At the end of her microdermabrasion the result was fantastic and amazing. My sisters face looked brighter and fuller and the skin appeared more firm and plump. We were so impressed and I could not wait to have my turn.
Well, after my treatment I am so happy, my skin looks younger and I truly cannot describe the immediate results. I guess that is the part that impressed us. The treatment was not at all painful and the result really is immediate.
This morning my face is glowing and I really like how my skin looks and feel and I cannot wait to go back for further treatments.
I have not been asked to write a review but feel that a treatment like this that is non-invasive and gives such beautiful results deserves to be written about.
Thanks to Stephen for recommending this treatment to us and a thank you to Nikki (hope I spelt your name correctly) for making it so enjoyable.
See you in a few weeks.

I knew you would love this treatment! I think the ultrasound with the microderm makes the difference. The microderm removes the dead skin from the surface which allows the ultrasound to infuse vitamins into the deeper skin layers where it is needed.
I have copied your post and put it as a comment on the blog on the home page so more people can see it. I hope you don't mind.

Not at all.
I love the results. I have even had some people comment that I look really refreshed and glowing.
Woo Hooo, all this from one treatment. Can't wait for more.

Wow, very informative site! I will be getting some plasma injections in a couple of weeks under my eyes. My doctor has recommended that I also get some FX laser done at the same time. Isn't it too much or does anybody know if it will be tolerable.
