What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a quick, non-invasive skin treatment, ideal for cleaning, refining and smoothing the skin surface. Using micro massage, the procedure removes the surface layer of dead skin and stimulates healthy vital reactions in the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in soft and hydrated skin that glows. The Microdermabrasion machine at CosMedik can be adjusted to suit all types of skin, including oily and dry, resulting in a treatment that’s individualised to best address your specific skin type. Our machine can also treat different skin thicknesses, allowing it to assist with a variety of concerns, including acne, congestion, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring including raised scars, and dry, flaky skin. Depending on the area being treated, the process can take as little as twenty minutes to perform, with Microdermabrasion results visible after just a single session*. Our experienced clinicians and registered nurses will guide you through the process, showing how dramatic improvements in skin conditions can be obtained, with reductions in uneven textured skin, scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, and superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots. But the benefits of Microdermabrasion don’t stop there – treatment can also encourage active skin products such as collagen and Vitamin C to work in half the time, allowing them to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin faster.

Does it hurt and is it safe?

Microdermabrasion treatment is a virtually painless and completely safe procedure. Our clinicians will customise the treatment to your skin type and because it’s not a harsh or deep process, it requires no downtime. Sessions can be scheduled at any time of the day, allowing you to get back to your normal activities in no time. Treatments are comfortable with a slight tingling sensation, not unlike mild sand paper rubbing against the skin. A slightly sun burnt sensation is experienced for a short time afterwards.

What effects will be visible afterwards?

It is normal for the skin to be slightly red afterwards, which can last up to a few hours. Mild shedding of the skin is common in the first few days of early treatments, but is uncommon once the skin is in better condition. Where acne pustules have been treated, the area may be red and small scabs may form, lasting for several days. It’s essential that you don’t pick any scabs, as this can cause scarring. After a few days, you will see a visible improvement, with dull and stressed looking skin appearing smoother and fresher.

How many treatments do I need?

To obtain the best Microdermabrasion results, it’s necessary to have multiple sessions over a period of time. For general rejuvenation, approximately 6 sessions* are required. For problematic skin, a course of 6 to 12 sessions* is recommended. These are performed every two to three weeks*, with each session taking anywhere between twenty to thirty minutes depending on the individual and the area being treated.

As the skin is constantly renewing itself, we recommend that most clients return on a regular basis to keep their skin looking its best. Many clients return every one to three months*. The frequency of treatments can be decided as a part of your treatment plan, which is designed during an initial complimentary consultation at CosMedik.

How does it differ from dermabrasion?

If you’ve been wondering ‘how does Microdermabrasion work differently from dermabrasion?’, the answer is simple: Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that removes only the surface layer of dead skin, while dermabrasion is an invasive procedure that removes several layers of skin at once. This often requires a general or local anaesthetic, and leaves skin red, swollen and extremely sensitive for up to two weeks. Microdermabrasion is a much milder treatment, and is relatively painless with minimal after-effects.

Does Microdermabrasion work for all skin types?

Yes, all skin types and colours are suitable for treatment, including both oily and dry skin. Our machine can even be adjusted to cater for sensitive skin. However, there are certain skin conditions and immune system disorders that may make Microdermabrasion unsuitable, so it’s important to discuss your medical history with us in your initial consultation. The treatment is also not recommended for those with exceptionally sensitive skin, or those suffering with rosacea, as this may aggravate the area.

Where can Microdermabrasion be performed?

The treatment can be safely performed anywhere on the body, including the face, arms, chest, hands, legs, neck and back – anywhere that soft, smooth skin is desired.
