Microdermabrasion is a specialized skin treatment that utilizes a unique applicator to scrape away the top layer of skin gently. It’s known and proven to be safe and suitable for most skin types and colours. Though this treatment is quick and non-invasive, it is advised to entrust the process to a qualified professional as it requires the use of specialized equipment on the targeted area.
Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment for:
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age and sun spots, sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
Removing blackheads, swollen pores and melasma.
Dealing with acne and scarring.
Reducing the appearance of stretch marks and smoothing skin texture and tone

BENEFITS OF MICRODERMABRASION
Microdermabrasion is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure that offers many benefits, such as:Pre-treatment requirements are a minimum, and there is no need for premedication. You may be asked to stop using aspirin-based medicines or glycolic acid products and avoid waxing, laser treatments, or excess sun exposure a week before treatment.It leaves your skin feeling baby smooth and plump, reduces pigmentation and the appearance of wrinkles, and stimulates collagen production.
It removes dead skin cells, improves circulation, unclogs and reduces the size of pores, and ensures that all necessary nutrients, skin care products and oxygen are better absorbed and have a clear path to rejuvenate the area of your skin.
It is safe and offers better results than harsh procedures like chemical peels or laser treatments.
It can help improve shallow and depressed acne scars and improve skin’s overall smoothness.
Skin is restored to a more youthful appearance with little recovery time.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
First, your skin will be cleansed with a special cleansing gel or alcohol. As you lie on a reclining chair, your skin will be treated with diamond crystal microdermabrasion head which is pressed against your skin.This is meant to remove dead skin and vacuum skin cells. After the treatment, your skin will be soothed with a special nourishing sun-blocking cream, allowing you to return to your daily routine immediately after treatment.
The side effects of microdermabrasion are short-lived and may include a little redness and tenderness immediately after the treatment. This will go down within an hour to two. There may be some bruising from the suction process or irritation if you have particularly sensitive skin. We do not recommend microdermabrasion if you have eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, sunburn, open sores or other skin conditions.

Avoid topical acne creams for at least 24 hours after microdermabrasion. Follow the recommended skincare plan prescribed by your doctor.
