What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a superficial, gentle abrading of the skin via a wet or dry diamond head tip or crystal spray procedure. Also known as dermabrasion, diamond microdermabrasion, hydro-microdermabrasion, hydrafacial, derma sweep and silk peel. Microdermabrasion is one of the most affordable deep cleansing and exfoliating treatments available. Ideal for a combination/oily skin that is prone to flaky skin, clogging and breakout. In our skin clinic we utilise a diamond head with either wet or dry applications.
What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an economical way to progressively resurface your skin. Below are some of the benefits you can achieve from regular monthly microdermabrasion facials.
- Even out skin texture, tone and colour
- Reduce surface sun damage
- Remove thickened and dry, flaky skin
- Reduce blackheads, congestion and minor acne.
- Increased cellular regeneration of a more youthful skin
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce pore size and fade scarring
- Customized for even the most sensitive skins
- Deeper penetration of clinical treatment products
- Stimulate circulation to feed the skin from within
- Increased lymphatic drainage to alleviate puffy, tired skin
- Instantly hydrated and radiant skin
Are there any side effects of Microdermabrasion?
Generally there are no side effects to microdermabrasion as it is a non-invasive skin refining treatment. However, after treatment, the skin may appear a little pink for a couple of hours.
You may also experience some dryness or minor skin peeling within 5 to 7 days post treatment. If you are new to Microdermabrasion, do not be concerned if this happens. This is the skin’s natural exfoliating and rejuvenating processes kicking in. This occurs to continue the exfoliation of dead cells that may still be present after treatment.
Bear in mind, there may be some individuals who should avoid microdermabrasion. Their skin may be too reactive to tolerate this type of exfoliation. If you are prone to hives or red bumps after exfoliating or waxing, it is advisable to seek medical advise prior to treatment. Alternatively you might opt to take an anti-histamine to minimise reactivity. For more information on this and other precautions please contact us for a pre-treatment consultation.

Subsequently, both have been recognised by Brisbane’s Style Magazine as the best microdermabrasion facial treatments in Brisbane’s North.

We finish the facials with an infusion of skin recovery serums, masks and hydrators so your skin exudes health and radiance. If you intend to stay for some shopping, we are happy to apply Inika Organics minerals to minimize any residual pinkness.
Can I wear makeup after my Microdermabrasion in Brisbane?
In short, yes you can wear makeup after your microdermabrasion treatment. We advise a makeup that is natural or mineral based. You should avoid chemical based makeup as it will only clog and suffocate your skin. It defeats the purpose of microdermabrasion to unclog the pores. Chemical based makeup and artificial fragrances are only going to interfere with your skins recovery. Opt for a liquid with Hyaluronic Acid to protect and hydrate your skin.
Your home care products need to support the skin refining and rejuvenation process to maintain a youthful glow. Ask your skin practitioner which makeup and skincare lines are best to treat and enhance your new found glow.
Is Microdermabrasion good for active acne?
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for active acne. However, it is great for cleaning out the pores and preventing acne once it is under control. If you have active acne you will need to take a gentle and holistic approach to fixing it. Skin Peels, Gut Health, Diet and Lifestyle changes, Targeted Homecare, Laser/IPL Acne Therapy and LED are the first steps to eliminate acne.
Is Microdermabrasion good for acne scars?
If you have cleared your skin of acne you will be able to start addressing the residual scarring. Superficial surface scarring can be treated with regular microdermabrasion facials to help speed up the scar repair process. However, deep acne scarring will require fractional laser or dermal skin needling to correct and smooth the skins surface. Alternatively, ask one of our skin experts which treatment option is best for you.
