How does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that removes the top layers of dead skin cells. A specialised tool is gently glided across the skin's surface using light suction to vacuum away the dead skin cells. It is a safe and effective treatment that can be used on areas close to the eyes and over the lips. We use a medical-grade diamond tip machine for all our microdermabrasion treatments to achieve the best results. Diamond tip machines are less irritating to the skin and provide a more precise and controlled treatment.
What areas can be treated with Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion can be performed on various parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. It is commonly used to treat these areas to exfoliate and improve the skin's texture and appearance. Additionally, microdermabrasion can be used on other parts of the body as needed to address specific skin concerns.
How many treatments do I need?
For best results, treatments are performed ongoing for general skin health, improved product absorption and maintenance.
How often can a Microdermabrasion treatment be performed?
Microdermabrasion treatments can typically be performed at intervals of 2 to 4 weeks apart. The skin's natural renewal process takes around 28 days, so scheduling treatments within this timeframe can help maintain the benefits and keep the skin looking fresh and revitalised. Regular and consistent treatments can lead to cumulative improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.
What is the downtime for Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion generally has minimal downtime. It is normal for the skin to appear slightly red, which can last a few hours or up to a day or so. Mild flaking and skin shedding are also common after the treatment. If acne lesions are treated, the area can appear red with mild scaling. These reactions are normal and will heal. Most clients experience a visible improvement in skin texture immediately after the treatment, with the skin looking smoother and fresher. You can apply makeup afterwards. After microdermabrasion, it is essential to protect the skin from UV rays as it becomes more sensitive to sun exposure. Applying sufficient SPF protection, like Skinstitut Age Defence 50+, is recommended to shield the skin from harmful UV rays without congesting the skin. All post-care and Skinstitut skincare products are available at the clinic to support the healing process and maintain the benefits of the treatment.

I have been a regular client for more than three years. I cannot recommend Iballa highly enough. She is super professional and I am delighted by the results I have achieved with laser facials. The Salon is always spotlessly clean.
