What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure designed to help rejuvenate the skin by removing dead skin cells that have built up over time on the surface of the skin. It can be used on any area of the face or body where you want to smooth out wrinkles, reduce fine lines, get rid of brown spots, reduce pore size (particularly for enlarged pores), and even diminish acne breakouts. It’s also helpful for diminishing scars and stretch marks, as microdermabrasion stimulates collagen production to flatten scar tissue.
What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion uses advanced techniques to rejuvenate, restore and protect your skin with long lasting visible results.
Suitable for all skin types, Microdermabrasion improves most other skin types and troubles, including oily skin, blemishes, brown spots and even acne scars while reducing fine lines and wrinkles in healthy skin.
This treatment removes dead skin cells and increases cellular turnover remove dead skin cells leaving the skin looking more radiant and youthful. Microdermabrasion on the skin type face and body improves the overall look, feel, texture and tone of the skin and helps products penetrate more easily. Your treatment continues at home with skin care packs to maintain and enhance your treatment’s results.
Microdermabrasion has been steadily increasing in popularity over the years for many reasons – but mainly due to its easy accessibility for both those treating themselves and professionals and its affordable prices.
How is Microdermabrasion performed?
This procedure involves the use of micro-crystals (usually made up of aluminium oxide) that are scrapped across the surface of the skin to remove dead skin without causing damage to the healthy layers of your skin. The treatment promotes blood-flow which is important for nutrient delivery to the tissues and therefore skin rejuvenation.
An even gentle exfoliation and treatment typically takes about 15 minutes to an hour if combined with other treatments such as dermal peels and LED therapy. Microdermabrasion has no down-time and you begin to see beneficial skin changes right after the first session of gentle but thorough exfoliation.
Your skin may appear slightly red after the procedure, depending on how sensitive your skin is. This red or uneven skin tone or shade is not a sign of irritation though but appears due to increased circulation and is a natural response to the microdermabrasion treatments. Usually, this redness should fade after a few hours or a day.
Preparing for your procedure and aftercare
There are a few steps you can take prior to your first treatment plan to ensure that the procedure is safe and effective:
- Avoid activities that irritate or expose your skin
- Stay out of the sun for two to four weeks before your treatment and regularly applying sun protection to prevent sun damage.
- Do not use spray tan or self-tan products for a few weeks before your procedure.
- Avoid waxing, plucking, or bleaching for two to four weeks before your treatment (a razor is usually still fine).
- Avoiding medication such as Retin-A for two weeks and Roaccutane (used as acne treatments) for six months before your session is also recommended.
After your procedure, there are a few simple yet helpful tips you can take to ensure your healing process is quick and comfortable:
- Apply soothing gel that you can ask for at your appointment can ease any discomfort you are feeling and help reduce inflammation if there is any.
- Avoiding unnecessary perspiration, spas or pools that are chemically treated, and excessively hot showers until your skin has finished healing also helps your skin to heal faster.
- If you do experience any crusting or swelling on the treated area, it is important to contact your select clinic for further consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Microdermabrasion Treatments
What exactly is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that exfoliates the top layer of the skin using micro-crystals. The process removes dead skin cells, promoting the growth of new, healthier, skin cells and enhancing collagen production.
How often should I get microdermabrasion?
For optimal results, it’s recommended to start with a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart. After the initial series, many people opt for maintenance treatments every 2-3 months.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
Microdermabrasion has minimal downtime. Some may experience slight redness or tenderness, but most can return to their regular activities immediately after the treatment.
Who is an ideal candidate for microdermabrasion?
Most people can benefit from microdermabrasion, especially those with dull skin, age spots, mild acne scars, or sun-damaged skin. However, it’s crucial to have a consultation with a skincare professional to determine if the microdermabrasion treatment is right for you.
Can I combine microdermabrasion with other treatments?
Yes, many clients combine microdermabrasion with other skincare treatments, such as chemical peels or LED therapy, to enhance results. Discussing your skincare goals with a professional will help tailor a treatment plan suitable for you.
Does the procedure hurt?
Microdermabrasion is generally painless. You might feel a slight abrasive sensation, similar to a gentle sandpaper rubbing against the skin. Some people describe it as a mild “tingling” feeling.
How long does each session take?
A typical session, when focusing on the face, usually lasts between 15 to 60 minutes. If you’re including other areas of the body, it may take longer.
How soon will I see results?
Many clients notice a brighter complexion after just one session. However, for more significant changes in the skin texture itself, scars, or spots, a series of treatments might be necessary to achieve desired results.
Are there any side effects?
Some people might experience slight redness, swelling, or sensitivity after the treatment. These are typically temporary and subside within a few hours to a couple of days.
How should I care for my skin post-treatment?
After microdermabrasion, your skin might be more sensitive to the sun. It’s essential to apply sunscreen, avoid direct sunlight, and use a gentle moisturiser. Avoiding makeup for at least 24 hours can also help prevent any potential skin irritation.
