Microdermabrasion remains one of our most popular treatments, and it’s not hard to see why! It’s a non-invasive, relatively quick procedure that renews and rejuvenates the overall appearance of your skin’s tone and texture. As a bonus, it’s an affordable option compared to many other cosmetic treatments.
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion uses a unique applicator that features an abrasive surface and the use of tiny crystal to deeply exfoliate your skin. In the hands of an experienced cosmetic nurse, this exfoliation process removes dead and damaged skin cells to reveal a fresher, more radiant appearance.
What skin issues can it address?
Microdermabrasion can be used to address a whole range of skin-related concerns, such as sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, active acne or uneven skin tone. It works extremely well to banish dull skin!
If you’re unsure whether microdermabrasion is the right treatment for you, we can firstly assess your skin to recommend the most suitable course of treatment.
How is it different to microneedling?
While both treatments rejuvenate the skin, they work quite differently. Microdermabrasion is a deeply exfoliating treatment that smooths the skin from within. In-clinic microneedling uses very fine needles to create tiny ‘holes’ in the skin, which trigger collagen production.
While not recommended to have both treatments at the same time, microneedling can be a good option to maintain a radiant complexion between microdermabrasion treatments.

How often can you have microdermabrasion?
At first, many people choose to start with weekly treatments for three sessions and then change to a monthly or six-weekly maintenance regimen. Once again, this is something our cosmetic nurses can discuss with you after assessing your skin. The regime will depend on your desired outcome and your skin’s tolerance.
How long does it take?
Microdermabrasion treatments takes around 15-30 minutes, depending on the condition of your skin and what areas are being targeted.
So, if you’re juggling a busy daily life, this is the perfect procedure to squeeze into your schedule.
What to expect after treatment?
Common side effects could include mild tenderness and redness. These generally disappear within a few hours. We can apply Oxygenetix aloe-enriched foundation to cover any redness and assist in your skin’s healing.
How long to see results?
After just one microdermabrasion treatment, you will notice a rejuvenated and brighter skin tone. Most clients have noted visible results immediately after their treatment.
24 hours after the initial treatment, the effects will become more pronounced as the skin settles from the procedure.
Simply put, microdermabrasion is one the most affordable rejuvenating treatments on the market. Over time, this procedure offers an economical and non-invasive way to resurface your skin, leading to a younger looking, radiant appearance.
