The natural ageing process, combined with environmental factors like stress, smoking and sun exposure, can have a dramatic effect on our skin. Microdermabrasion was developed as a dermatological procedure in Italy in the mid-1980s to give skin back its beautiful natural glow, improve skin complexion, and reduce fine wrinkles. It is a non-invasive skin treatment which improves complexion, circulation and blood flow, stimulating collagen and elastin production. The procedure uses a diamond tip in conjunction with suction – to exfoliate the dead outer skin layers, resulting in a smoother, fresher and younger-looking face. Microdermabrasion entails virtually no discomfort, downtime or recovery. The treatment is not painful, and because it has no healing time, there is almost no risk of side effects. It is simple, safe and economical, and can be used as an alternative to or in conjunction with photo rejuvenation and chemical peels.
Microdermabrasion is also popular option to treat certain skin conditions such as acne and the signs of premature ageing. For those who suffer from acne, regular Microdermabrasion treatments will assist in keeping you in control of your skin.
Microdermabrasion is a quick, non-invasive, painless and low-cost beauty skin rejuvenation treatment used to exfoliate the skin by refining and smoothing the skin’s surface – while stimulating healthy reactions in the deeper layers of the dermis using micro-massage. There is no downtime, and the treatment can be done during a lunch break.

The number of treatments needed to see other results can depend on the specific skin condition or concern being targeted. For best microdermabrasion results, it is necessary to have multiple treatment. For general skin rejuvenation, approximately 6-8 treatments are required. Severe cases of acne or acne scarring may require more. Treatments are usually done every 2-3 weeks and take about 30-40 minutes. If you’re looking for a lower cost, we offer microdermabrasion special packages!
After your session, it is important to note that your skin may feel tight (as if exposed to the sun or wind) for the first 2 days. Deeper treatment for shallow scars or skin with moderate-to-heavy sun damage may appear slightly red, swollen or grazed for a few hours. This may last for a day or 2 for patients with sensitive skin.
