What is Microdermabrasion?
If you want to improve the appearance of skin texture, pigmentation, acne scarring, fine lines and uneven skin tone, we know you’ll love Microdermabrasion!
This treatment increases microcirculation, bringing nutrients to the skin and greatly improves the appearance of all imperfections. It is a non-surgical exfoliation technique that removes dead skin cells from the outer layer of skin.
SALON SECRET: This is a favourite treatment amongst our male clients who are looking for a refreshed, deep cleansing and squeaky clean feel!
What does Microdermabrasion do?
Microdermabrasion (Micro) helps to improve irregularities on the surface of the skin by buffing away the surface layer to reduce fine lines, pigmentation marks and shallow acne scars. The process also accelerates the regeneration of new skin cells, stimulates the production of collagen and strengthens elastin; effectively plumping the skin out and revealing fresher, healthier and younger looking skin.
Microdermabrasion can treat any of the following conditions:
- Ageing skin
- Sun damage
- Acne and scarring
- Pigmentation marks
- Dry & dull skin
- Fine lines
- Enlarged and clogged pores

How does it work?
This treatment is hygienic, painless & safe. We utilise two different methods of Microdermabrasion that is customised to your skin concerns, needs and level of intensity required for exfoliation. Your Paramedical Therapist will discuss these with you on the day, so you can choose a treatment together that will give you maximum results.
Diamond Crystal application utilises a combination of Aluminium Oxide and Organic Crystals during the treatment to buff away the surface layer of skin, applied using a hand held wand with a micro-head. We follow this with a natural oil to rebalance your skin and a gumming mask to remove any left behind crystals, leaving the skin perfectly clean. The mask will rebalance and rehydrate the skin leaving your skin calm, and reduce any redness prior to you leaving the salon. While your mask is on, we’ll apply a hydrating treatment to your arms/hands, or give you a relaxing scalp massage to enjoy.
Diamond Tip application is the alternative to the crystal application. The diamond tip cap system replaces the micro-crystal flow with a disposable or reusable diamond tip wand, which is made of natural diamond chips to polish the skin and remove dead cells, which are then vacuumed back into a waste filter.
What to expect when pre & post Microdermabrasion:
The procedure will be customised for your special skin concerns without any inconvenience or down time. You may experience some slight redness depending on the strength of procedure chosen by your qualified Paramedical Therapist, but this will fade within one to 24 hours. A light dusting of mineral makeup can be applied at the completion of your treatment if you wish.
Things to note: While the results of the treatment differs from client to client, Microdermabrasion is not recommended if you have fine, sensitive skin. We advise clients to avoid waxing the two days prior to your treatment and five days after, and strongly advise against the use of sun beds and swimming in heavily chlorinated water for at least two weeks post-treatment. If you have broken capillaries or have active breakouts, we recommend you discuss with your Therapist alternative treatments such as IPL Photorejuvenation, Omnilux or Peels to help strengthen, repair and calm your skin.
