Microdermabrasion is used for a variety of skin problems and for the maintenance of healthy skin.
Microdermabrasion is an extremely popular procedure used for the treatment of a variety of skin problems and for the maintenance of healthy skin. The procedure involves passing a diamond encrusted device over the skin with light suction to remove the top layer of skin called the Stratum Corneum.
How does Microdermabrasion work?
During a microdermabrasion treatment your esthetician will cleanse and tone your skin then using a sophisticated diamond-encrusted wand, will suction and gently polish the outer layer of the skin to reduce dead skin cells that clog the surface. Microdermabrasion is a quick process that reduces discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines. Some skin conditions may require multiple microdermabrasion treatments for optimal results. Regular sessions of microdermabrasion are also very effective for maintaining healthy skin.
Microdermabrasion only treats the top layer of skin. It is not an effective treatment for moderate to deep lines and wrinkles, heavy or deep pigmentation or deep scarring. These skin conditions require treatment in the deeper dermal layer of skin. This is better achieved by other treatments like Collagen Induction Therapy.
Microdermabrasion promotes vibrant, smoother skin instantly whilst encouraging the production of new skin cells in the deep layers of the skin. It is a pain-free procedure and usually takes 30 minutes to perform. It is used to treat a variety of skin problems such as:
- Superficial pigmentation
- Whiteheads and blackheads
- Rough, thickened skin texture
- Acne problems
- Dull, dry, tired skin
- Fine line and wrinkles
- Undiagnosed Moles, Skin Tags and Various Lesions

- Autoimmune disorders
- Recent chemical peel or laser treatment
