Microdermabrasion Skin Rejuvenation | 30 Min
A minimally invasive procedure used to treat light scarring, discoloration, and sun-damage. Recommended monthly.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that makes use of crushed diamonds to remove and exfoliate the superficial layer of dead and dry skin cells. The microdermabrasion procedure uses a machine that polishes and buffs the skin by using a diamond-tipped wand with built-in suction to vacuum away the exfoliated skin cells during treatment. It is one of the most discussed non-surgical cosmetic procedures on the market.
Microdermabrasion treatments benefit patients struggling with blemishes and the effects of aging. If you’re looking to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, uneven pigmentation, and acne scarring, then microdermabrasion may be the answer you’ve been looking for. The procedure is also highly recommended for patients suffering from melasma, patients using retinoids like Retin-A, and patients with clogged pores.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
A microdermabrasion treatment achieves the following:
- Improves the appearance of blackheads and age spots
- Improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation (condition where patches of your skin appear darkened)
- Exfoliates the skin, leading to a refreshed and more youthful appearance
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduces the appearance of stretch marks
- Reduces or completely eliminates enlarged pores
- Treats acne and the scarring left behind by acne
The treatment also helps with thickening collagen in the skin, leading to a more youthful-looking complexion. Collagen is a type of protein that gives your skin that taut and smooth look. As we grow older, our bodies produce less collagen, which results in uneven and loose skin.

What to Expect
After microdermabrasion, the body replaces the exfoliated skin cells in the stratum corneum (a part of the skin) with new and healthy ones. In the very first hour after the treatment, there might be some slight redness and mild swelling. These side effects tend to go away within two to three hours, depending on the person.
The new skin cells that our body produces after a microdermabrasion treatment feel and look smoother. Sun damage, fine lines, and blemishes are completely removed! Moisturizing creams and medical creams are more effective now that the pores are more absorbent.
When you get multiple microdermabrasion treatments, they can remove even deeper blemishes such as furrows over time. The procedure promotes the healthy growth of new skin cells. This helps with creating smoother skin, giving you a more youthful look that lasts for a longer period of time.
