About the microdermabrasion procedure

Microdermabrasion is similar to the standard dermabrasion procedure, but involves a gentler level of abrasion and removes a thinner layer of the outer skin. Its ability to reduce wrinkles, blemishes or scars is not as great as standard dermabrasion, however it generally improves skin tone and allows you to resume normal activities much more quickly.

Following microdermabrasion your skin may feel slightly sensitive and appear pink for a day or so. You are unlikely to require any time off work but you should take extra care to protect your face following your treatment.

Most specialists will not carry out dermabrasion if you have active acne, a bad skin burn, or have had radiation treatments or a chemical peel. This is because of the increased risk of infection and damage to the skin.
