What you should know

What is microdermabrasion?

If you’re finding your home exfoliation scrubs only seem to go so far when it comes to clogged pores, acne or pigmentation, consider a professional microdermabrasion treatment. This deep exfoliation of the skin’s dead surface layers results in a clearer, more radiant complexion. The traditional methods use fine crystal dust, with more modern treatments using rough diamond tips, to smooth and buff the skin’s surface along with a vacuum suction.

Microdermabrasion is a popular non-surgical and non-invasive treatment, and ideal for those new to advanced in-clinic treatments to improve the skin a step further than just nourishing it with a relaxing facial. The treatment is also super quick, affordable and available at most professional skin clinics.

How will microdermabrasion improve my skin?

Microdermabrasion treatments work to reduce congestion, improve surface texture and fine lines, stimulate new collagen production, reduce pigmentation and leave the skin soft and smooth.

The method is completely safe (if used by experienced skin therapists), however as with most deep exfoliations you may get some slight pinkness, dryness or irritation straight afterwards, which will soon fade.

The treatment shouldn’t hurt at all, although maybe a slightly uncomfortable sensation at first. It’s best to do this treatment on a day where you can head home afterwards, rather than right before a big event that requires lots of makeup, due to the sensitivity of your freshly buffed skin. You’ll be glowing and back to normal by the following day!
