Microdermabrasion is a quick, pain-free and non-invasive procedure that can give you smoother, more youthful skin with no downtime.
Microdermabrasion helps to provide a deep exfoliation of the skin and diminish the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, unwanted pigmentation, and reduce the size of pores. Tiny diamonds are permanently fixed to a microdermabrasion wand that is used to scrape off the outermost cells of the skin. The exact pressure used and the number of times that the wand is passed over the skin is determined by the provider. Immediate improvement with skin tone and texture is noticed. It is successfully used on all skin types, including sensitive skin, and it can be used on any skin colour without causing discolouration of the skin. This painless exfoliating skin resurfacing requires no downtime and results in youthful, glowing, and rejuvenated skin. Microdermabrasion done in a medical office setting is much more powerful than what can be done with at-home microdermabrasion kits.
The Answers You Need
WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive resurfacing procedure which refreshes the skin by carefully buffing the dead surface layer away to help reveal the fresh new skin. Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals or other exfoliating surfaces to perform this task. When you remove the stratum corneum or the top layer of skin, the body interprets it as an injury. It then quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones.
WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION EFFECTIVE FOR?
It can improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions. Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colours. The following are a list of conditions where microdermabrasion has been shown to be an effective treatment.
Fine lines and wrinkles
Hyper-pigmentation, age spots and brown spots
Enlarged pores and blackheads
Dull-looking skin complexion
Uneven skin tone and texture
IS MICRODERMABRASION SAFE?
Yes. As with all treatments that penetrate the skin or disrupt the skin’s surface, the safest procedure will be carried out by a trained professional. In fact, many people choose microdermabrasion over chemical peels and laser treatment because it is generally safer and more cost-effective.
The procedure may be a little uncomfortable but shouldn’t hurt. However, your skin will be slightly tender afterwards and a bit red.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER MICRODERMABRASION?
There is little to no downtime after Microdermabrasion. You should be able to resume your daily activities immediately. Keep your skin hydrated and use gentle skincare products. Avoid using topical acne medications for at least one day after treatment. Your skin can be more sensitive to the sun in the few weeks after the treatment so its extremely important to protect your skin.
You can expect to see noticeable results immediately after the procedure. The number of microdermabrasion sessions needed will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations.

ARE THERE ANY POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
Common side effects of Microdermabrasion include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. These generally go away within a few hours after treatment.
