What are microdermabrasion treatments?
Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion can:
- Improve age spots and black heads.
- Improve hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin).
- Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
- Lessen the appearance of stretch marks.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores.
- Treat acne and the scars left by acne.
Microdermabrasion helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is proteins in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin. Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion can achieve dramatic results, but it is highly dependent on the skill of the therapist . For the best results, it is generally recommended get a series of treatments. Your therapist should be able to recommend the number that is appropriate for your skin type and condition. A typical protocal is six treatments about 10 to 14 days apart. Because the machine can be adjusted depending on skin type and condition, even people with sensitive skin can get a treatment. It takes about 30 minutes and there’s no down-time for the skin to recover. That’s why it’s also sometimes called a “lunchtime peel.” It is important to realize that you have taken off the outermost layer of the skin, which is also its protection, so this is not the time to go to the beach. Be careful with your skin a few days after the microdermabrasion treatment: don’t do vigorous exercise and don’t expose your skin to the sun. Wear a gentle physical sunscreen, even if its a cloudy day. Don’t expect to get the same results with a home microdermabrasion kit, which works more like a scrub. In fact, you can easily overdo it and irritate your skin.
Your polished new look should be long-lasting, depending on the severity of your skin damage and the number of treatments that you receive. Many people have two microdermabrasion treatments per month at first and then one per month as part of a maintenance plan.

What is Medical Microdermabrasion?
Medical Microdermabrasion is a Non Surgical method of rejuvenation by means of mechanical skin exfoliation using medical grade crystals rather than chemicals or a laser. The treatment can be used on the face, chest, back or shoulders and has no down-time.
Medical Microdermabrasion is an ideal treatment for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and wrinkles, sun damaged and uneven skin tone, acne prone skin, blackheads, whiteheads, superficial age spots and hyper pigmentation and excessive oiliness or dry skin. Prior to your treatment you will have a free consultation where all your questions are answered and you are assessed for your suitability to proceed. Please note, Medical Microdermbrasion is not a suitable treatment for clients who have visible broken blood vessels.
How is a Medical Microdermabrasion treatment performed?
The skin is cleansed and the prep solution is applied prior to treatment. A highly controlled flow of medical grade crystals is then passed over the skin using a hand held device. These crystals, delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin’s surface are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells with it. This mechanical exfoliation process improves both the tone and texture of the skin and also reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft and smooth. At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the treatment, promoting new collagen, thickening the dermis and improving the resistance to the effects of ageing. After the procedure, the treatment will finish with the application of anti-oxidant moisturiser and SPF 25 to hydrate and provide sun protection for your skin.
Why should I opt for Medical Microdermabrasion over a standard microdermabrasion treatment?
The vacuum capacity used in Medical Mircrodermabrasion is significantly stronger than what is used during a standard microdermabrasion treatment, therefore providing much deeper penetration on the skin’s surface and guaranteeing better and longer overall results.
Will I experience any pain during my treatment?
Medical Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, painless procedure, although you may experience slight discomfort for a short time as the medical grade crystals are delivered at high velocity directly onto the skin’s surface. However, the controls of the hand held device and vacuum capacity are flexible, so you can opt for a less intense treatment, you can discuss this with your practitioner at your consultation.
How long does a Medical Microdermabrasion treatment take?
The average time for a treatment is 30minutes or 45minutes if performed with a mask and has no down-time.
How often do I need to have Medical Microdermabrasion treatments?
We recommend that you book the course of six Medical Microdermabrasion treatments, to have every two weeks and then maintain top-up treatments every four-six weeks. Due to the incredible results, clients often want to continue having treatments, so a maintenance course will be discussed with your practitioner, along with products you can use at home to enhance your results. When you have completed your initial course, you will have another Skin Analysis to assess the subsequent results.
What do I need to consider after I’ve had my treatment?
After having your Medical Microdermabrasion treatment you may experience slight redness in the first 48 hours. Some clients, dependent on skin type may experience slight shedding but this is a natural side effect and nothing to be worried about. We recommend clients to avoid heat treatments, such as saunas, sun beds, hot baths and vigorous exercise 24 hours after having treatment.

If you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or ease acne prone skin, then medical microdermabrasion could be the answer. The term sounds clinical but, in a nutshell, it is a non-surgical form of skin exfoliation and is virtually painless. The top layer of dead skin cells is stripped away leaving newer, younger looking skin.
The treatment takes just 30 minutes and involves a hand held mini ‘vacuum’ being passed over your skin. The unit delivers a flow of fine, medical grade crystals that work as an exfoliator to take the unwanted dead skin too. This all sounds painful, but luckily only feels a little scratchy.
After the treatment be prepared for your face to look quite red and blotchy, but this will go down after 15 minutes or so. We advise not to wear make up for 24 hours, so bear this in mind if the idea of going barefaced at work is out of the question.
A couple of days later skin feels silky smooth and the appearance of acne is dramatically reduced as are any lines and wrinkles.
Does it work? Yes, especially if you feel peels and injections aren’t for you.
