Medical Microdermabrasion

Medical Microdermabrasion is a mild resurfacing treatment that is ideal for all skin types and a wide range of skin conditions.


Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation. It uses a pump and a vacuum and a sand-like substance which removes the outer epidermal layers. Microdermabrasion works on a much deeper exfoliation that you would perhaps normally get from a facial scrub or anything out there that you could buy over the counter. It takes off the stratum corneum but it takes off a couple of layers of the epidermis. It also has a vacuum which stimulates the blood flow which gives your skin that radiant look.

Anyone can have a microdermabrasion because everyone will benefit from a deeper exfoliation. It can even be done in pregnancy which is often a contraindication to other skin rejuvenation treatments but specifically it’s fantastic for people with congestion, comedones, blackheads, that type of skin. You could have a microdermabrasion weekly, specifically if you’re having a course, but if you’re using it in a maintenance approach then you may have it monthly.

What is Medical Microdermabrasion?

Medical Microdermabrasion is a mild resurfacing treatment that is ideal for all skin types. It removes the outermost layer of the skin whilst stimulating the underlying epidermis that promotes collagen and elastin. It is quick and pain-free, leaving the skin with a fresh youthful glow and over a course of treatments will give you an even, rejuvenated complexion.

What does Medical Microdermabrasion involve?

Aurora Skin Clinics: Photo showing Microdermabrasion treatmentThe procedure is performed using a hand piece that is passed over the skin with a flow of medical grade crystals that remove the top layer of dry dead skin cells. This deep exfoliation will reveal new skin cells that are soft and smooth and respond better to product and nutrients. At the same time the vacuum is removing oil and congestion which also stimulates the epidermal layers promoting collagen and elastin.

How long does the treatment take?

After a skin consultation the treatment takes between 30 – 45 minutes.

How long will the effects last?

Most people will see and feel immediate results in texture and appearance; we recommend a course of 3 to 6 treatments every 4 weeks for maximum results.

The effects will also last longer and be enhanced if you follow a product regime of skincare products between treatments that will be advised by your practitioner in your skin consultation tailored to your needs.
