Microdermabrasion treatments are used to improve the quality and texture of the skin.
This treatment works well to brighten dull skin, rehydrate and smooth dry or rough skin, improve pigmentation, reduce fine lines, refine pores and can be used to treat mild acne scarring.
Medical Microdermabrasion is a medical polishing exfoliation treatment that removes the buildup of dead skin cells and vacuums them away. After your treatment your skin should look brighter, smoother and will feel softer.
A course of six sessions, fortnightly is recommended to achieve the best results. However every patient is different and a plan can be arranged to suit for specific concerns.
Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment on it’s own but can be combined with other treatments such as glycolic acid peels, dermapen skin needling, venus viva, fraxel laser, Isolazand the aura blood vessel laser. An individual treatment plan is always personalised to suit every patient.
Do you use a Diamond or Crystal Microdermabrasion machine?
We use a Diamond tipped machine
What is the difference between a Crystal and a Diamond tip?
Crystal Microdermabrasion is an ablative procedure. It blasts away the dead skin cells by heat, force or friction. At the same time, the machine’s vacuum system sucks away any dead cells, dirt and used crystals.
Diamond Microdermabrasion is an abrasive procedure. It buffs the dead skin cells by scratching, grating or sanding. At the same time the machine’s vacuum system sucks away dirt, debris and dead cells.
Is there any down time?
Any redness, temporary flaking and mild discolouration has usually settled by the end of your treatment. If there is slight redness after the treatment it can be covered with a thin layer of mineral makeup.

Is the treatment painful?
