What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion facial exfoliates the deeper layers of the skin. It lifts away dead skin cells and reduces fine lines by using ultra- fine crystals emitted from a vacuum-like wand. The crystals themselves are of medical-grade Aluminium Oxide, which is perfect for gently restoring your skin’s natural glow and leaving it silky smooth.

During a Microdermabrasion treatment, your practitioner will expertly cleanse and prep your skin. They will then apply the crystals to your skin using a hand held device.

This vacuum-like device gently buffs the crystals evenly around your skin and whilst the crystals start exfoliating the skin, the vacuum action will stimulate the underlying epidermis to promote new Collagen production and increase blood flow to the surface.

Your practitioner will then apply a range of skin care products which complement the Microdermabrasion treatment and will leave your skin feeling amazing. Your practitioner will finish by applying an always essential: SPF.

What does Microdermabrasion do for your skin?

Microdermabrasion is also a great introductory treatment to a world of advanced skincare solutions and can achieve impressive results combined with other treatments. It complements and enhances a series of other treatments including Skin Peels, Intense Pulsed Light treatments, EDS, Dermaroller and Collagen boosters.

What results can I expect from Microdermabrasion?

After your Microdermabrasion treatment, you will see your youthful and fresher complexion instantly, where your freshly exfoliated and hydrated skin will beam from its regeneration.

It is not uncommon for your skin to look a little flushed just after the treatment as this is due to the stimulated production of Collagen, which increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. This should subside soon after the treatment.

You can expect immediate results, where you’ll be able to feel a difference to your skin and notice your restored, brighter complexion.

How do I prepare for Microdermabrasion?

Prior to your Microdermabrasion treatment, you should avoid sun exposure and fake tan as this can hinder the treatment’s effectiveness. Please inform your practitioner if you have exposed your skin to the sun or have applied fake tan before your

treatment, and they will advise the next steps.

We also recommend you avoid using any Retinol, Glycolic or Salicylic Acid products for 1-2 weeks before your treatment too.

How many Microdermabrasion treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you will need depends on your skin concern and it’s severity. Usually minor conditions need fewer

treatments and larger issues need repeated treatments, yet this will be formally confirmed during your consultation.

Microdermabrasion is a great introductory treatment for many skin concerns, especially treating dull and tired skin. We typically

recommend a course of 3-6 treatments to achieve maximum results and may recommend other treatments that will enhance and

compliment your skin further.


After this treatment, we always recommend that you use the Agera Microderma System, which contains small Vitamin C crystals

and infuses Lactic Acid to gently exfoliate and brighten the skin. By using additional products after the treatment, it will help you

maintain the results for longer and enhance the skin’s condition.

broken capillaries or an acne breakout on the skin’s surface.

A: A hand piece is passed over the skin up three times. This hand piece dispenses the crystals onto the skin and they are then

removed using a vacuum.

Q: What does the treatment feel like?

A: The treatment can feel a little scratchy with a sucking sensation. However, there is minimal discomfort.

Q: What happens after the treatment?

A: After the treatment, we remove all crystals from the skin and apply a mask, serums and an SPF.

Q: How quickly will I notice results?

A: You’ll be able to feel a difference to your skin straight after the treatment.
