Microdermabrasion Overview

Lift away old, tired cells, and reveal fresh, young-looking skin with Microdermabrasion - Improve fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, mild scars and rough skin.

If there’s any one skin issue that practically all women and men experience, it’s the fine lines and wrinkles that set into our faces as we age. Whilst it may be impossible to halt ageing permanently, Microdermabrasion is one easy, short and painless way to help improve the texture and look of your skin.

Every day, oil and dirt build up on our skin’s surface and can lead to troubling skin blemishes such as spots, blackheads and acne. These occur regardless of age or gender and can lead us to feeling self conscious and embarrassed about our complexion. Cleaning our faces with cleansers can only go so far in cleaning the skin and can’t always reach deeper dirt build up. This is why microdermabrasion is a great treatment to give skin a deep cleanse and stimulate the growth of fresh cells to give us a younger, fresher complexion.

Microdermabrasion has been available for over ten years and although it's an effective treatment, we generally recommend the newest way to achieve healthier looking skin with Hydrafacial as it incorporates the deep exfoliating effect of microdermabrasion with a number of other treatment steps that make it a far more effective and pleasant treatment to experience.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion treatment can improve the appearance of minor skin pigmentation problems, rough surface texture and fine lines and wrinkles. It’s an exfoliating treatment that works without the risk of side effects, and involves virtually no downtime from work or everyday life. We give your skin a refreshed, healthy glow using technology that can be best likened to a ‘skin vacuum cleaner’, lifting away dead cells to improve circulation and encourage the production of fresh, new cells to renew the surface of the skin. The technique, used alone or in combination with other treatments, can be also be beneficial for removing and preventing the return of blackheads, whiteheads and acne.

So how does it work? Take a look at our What is Microdermabrasion? page to find out how we use fine crystals to remove old cells, and naturally regenerate your skin, for fresher, younger skin with less wrinkles and fine lines.

Microdermabrasion Side Effects

Microdermabrasion is usually painless and doesn’t irritate the skin. You might experience some slight tightness and redness of the skin, which may last for an hour or two, and will then disappear. Deeper treatments aimed at scar tissue or stretch marks may produce some slight bleeding, with healing taking around 3 - 4 days.
