Microdermabrasion

Treatment Description

Microdermabrasion, also known as diamond peel, is one of the most popular medical aesthetic treatments these days. This cosmetic procedure can clear up your pores clogged by make-up products and dirt remaining from daily life, and improve the skin radiance immediately.

Microdermabrasion is often used to treat skin discolouration, thick old dead skin cells, and stretch marks by removing the top layer of skin.

The desired outcome of microdermabrasion is to make an individual’s complexion appear smoother, brighter, and more even in colour.

Microdermabrasion Procedure

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that uses a minimally abrasive device to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells on the skin’s surface.

During the procedure, the mechanical exfoliation wand vacuums away dead skin and impurities.

This treatment is performed by a medical esthetician using a special microdermabrasion device.

There are two common methods of microdermabrasion:

  • Crystal microdermabrasion. Tiny crystal particles are sprayed onto the skin through a wand to exfoliate the surface of the skin.
  • Diamond-tip microdermabrasion. A diamond-tipped handpiece makes direct contact with your skin as it rotates to gently exfoliate dead cells.

Both techniques work by loosening and suctioning away dead skin cells to reveal younger skin cells.

In addition, medical skincare products will be introduced post-treatment.
