What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating technique that can minimise the size of skin pores, offering a more youthful appearance. It can also reduce acne breakouts, renew skin elasticity and improve your neck and smile lines.

What does microdermabrasion do?

As we age, fibroblast or cellular activity decreases and our skin’s strength and elasticity can wane. This can facilitate the appearance of lines and wrinkles as blood flow decreases, and the production of new skin cells drops dramatically.

Microdermabrasion can improve skin rejuvenation for:

  • Active Acne
  • Aging and Sun Damage
  • Acne Scars
  • Pigmentation Marks (suitable for Asian skin)
  • Stretch Marks
  • Fine Lip and Character Lines
  • Enlarged Pores

What happens during the procedure?

Microdermabrasion employs a modern mechanical exfoliation and gentle aspiration technique to resurface the skin. A diamond-tipped abrasive disk is gently guided over the skin, erasing the layers at varying depths in a controlled manner. This technique minimises skin trauma, while a gentle suction is used to remove any dislodged skin cells.

You can also combine microdermabrasion with a glycolic peel (microdermabrasion deluxe) to produce even more dramatic results than a standard treatment. The 30% glycolic acid peel is applied to your skin and is removed with the microdermabrasion machine. The glycolic acid breaks down and loosens more dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, helping the microdermabrasion to be even more effective. This deeper treatment is not recommended for people with sensitive skin but is targeted more toward people with active acne, enlarged pores and tired-looking skin.

What happens after the treatment?

This non-invasive technique respects the skin’s integrity, minimises trauma and creates healthy, vital skin through promoting new cell growth. It’s possible to improve or eliminate some skin conditions and skin imperfections.

Having 5 or 6 treatments, separated by 1 or 2 weeks often produces the best results.

The procedure is painless, requires little or no healing time and is very low risk. You may return to work after the 30-minute treatment. Healing time is generally 1 – 24 hours, with minimal or no peeling or flaking.
