What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure used to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin. During the treatment, a handheld device is used to gently exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells and debris. This process helps to stimulate cell turnover and collagen production, resulting in smoother, softer, and more radiant skin.

What Microdermabrasion Is Capable Of?

  • Clear spots and blackheads
  • Treat acne and scars
  • Improve hyperpigmentation
  • Dampen the appearance of stretch marks
  • Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
  • Reduce lines and wrinkles
  • Exfoliate your skin and remove all of the dead cells


Overall, microdermabrasion is a quick, effective, and relatively painless treatment that can help to refresh and rejuvenate the skin, leaving it looking smoother, brighter, and more youthful.

The dermatologist employs a handheld device to gently exfoliate the top layer of skin. While you may sense a sanding feeling, it’s not painful. The procedure typically lasts around 30 to 40 minutes for the face and approximately 20 minutes for the neck.

Following the treatment, a moisturizer is applied to soothe the skin.

Shielding your skin from the sun is crucial for optimal results and minimising side effects, so be sure to apply suncream and some form of moisturiser.

While results are typically temporary, patients who shield their skin from the sun and adhere to the prescribed skincare regimen can prolong their outcomes. Nevertheless, skin aging is inevitable. Follow-up sessions are often required to sustain smoother skin and a radiant complexion.

After the treatment, you won’t experience any downtime or need for recovery. Some patients may notice their skin turning pink or red and slight swelling, similar to a mild sunburn or windburn. While these side effects typically last for a day or two, some patients may feel uncomfortable returning to work or being in public during this time.

Following microdermabrasion, you might notice your treated skin appears pink or red and slightly swollen, typically fading within a day. Occasionally, you may experience bruising, burning, stinging, or heightened sun sensitivity, all of which usually resolve without intervention.

If you’re prone to developing dark spots after acne or skin injuries, there’s a slight risk of experiencing more of them. However, when performed by a dermatologist, this risk is minimal.
