Microdermabrasion


Only available in the Toorak clinic.
Our skin naturally accumulates a build-up of oil and dead skin cells, clogging our pores and causing multiple skin issues. Microdermabrasion is an advanced exfoliation technology that removes skin debris and rectifies skin damage for a brighter and healthier complexion. This treatment is only available at our Toorak clinic.


The texture and quality of our skin can change with age, along with environmental factors such as toxins and sunlight. Over time, the surface accumulates dead cells and bacteria, making the skin prone to more problems. Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment for rectifying skin damage and dullness caused by surface build-up. It is used for removing dead and damaged cells to keep the skin looking bright and healthy. The process is safe for most skin types and removes the superficial layer of dead skin cells to leave your skin cleaner, smoother, and healthier. It is fast and gentle, with little to no downtime.

Our experienced dermal clinicians perform microdermabrasion using a Clairderm unit. This service is only available at our clinic in Toorak, so please be mindful of this before booking a consult.

How it works

When oils and skin cell build-up accumulate on the skin, our pores can become clogged. This can lead to acne, breakouts, and other skin issues. Microdermabrasion uses advanced exfoliation technology to eliminate the surface layer of dead skin and promote cellular renewal.

The process involves blowing crystals at a high velocity onto the skin’s surface to exfoliate the dead and damaged skin cells. This activates the skin’s production of new cells and collagen. It also promotes healthy oxygenated blood flow beneath the surface, helping to rejuvenate the skin and reduce blemishes. A unique feature of microdermabrasion treatment is the vacuum suction, used for extracting debris from pores and encouraging collagen renewal. While suctioning the crystals and debris, the vacuum function promotes lymphatic drainage and brings fresh, oxygenated blood to the surface.

Microdermabrasion treatments using Clairderm devices provide deep mechanical exfoliation without irritating the skin. The result is exfoliated skin that looks and feels brighter, clearer, and smoother.

The benefits

Microdermabrasion treatments offer a quick, gentle, and non-invasive solution to superficial skin problems. The mechanical exfoliation treatment is hygienic, comfortable, and does not require a recovery period. The benefits of microdermabrasion treatments include:

Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Improve Dry Skin

Reduce Enlarged Pores

Reduce Acne Scars

Other benefits include:

  • Deeply cleanses the skin
  • Improves skin tone and complexion
  • Treats discolourations and sun damage
  • Removes dead and damaged skin cells
  • Removes blackheads
  • Treats oily skin
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Stimulates healthy blood flow
  • Reduces acne and breakouts
  • Freshens and hydrates

The treatment simultaneously exfoliates and triggers healthy systems beneath the surface. Stimulating blood flow, cell renewal, and collagen production revitalises the skin from the inside out. This results in a clearer and more vibrant complexion.

Ideal candidates for microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is suitable for a wide variety of people. They are an excellent solution for patients seeking to revitalise their skin while avoiding more invasive procedures. Ideal candidates are generally physically healthy and strive to improve surface skin issues such as congestion and dullness.

Microdermabrasion is well suited to younger people who want to clear pores or treat acne. It is also suitable for older people wanting to reduce aging symptoms such as collagen loss and sun damage. Some patients may not be suited to this treatment, including those who:

  • Are prone to severe inflammatory acne
  • Are affected by rosacea
  • Have recently taken acne medications
  • Have eczema or other skin irritations

Before treatment, we will discuss your skin condition and ideal outcomes. This will help determine if you are a suitable candidate and ensure your treatment is tailored for your individual needs and goals.

What to expect

Once we have developed a personalised treatment plan and any concerns have been discussed, your skin will be cleared in preparation for treatment.

The duration of microdermabrasion sessions is usually around 45 minutes. The treatment is non-invasive, which means no anaesthetic is required. The diamond-tipped device head will be moved over the skin, removing debris and dead epidermal layers whilst stimulating blood flow. The process will loosen surface blemishes and provide deep exfoliation, revealing the fresh and healthy skin underneath.

A soothing serum will then be applied to infuse the skin with needed nutrients and hydration. Patients will usually experience smoother and clearer skin immediately after treatment, but the final results may not be visible until a month or two later. One treatment effectively clears and illuminates the skin, but some patients may need several treatments to achieve their desired outcomes.

Things to consider

Significant side effects do not typically accompany microdermabrasion. However, you may experience some mild redness due to increased blood flow to the area. You may also experience some mild sensitivity, swelling, and skin flaking. These symptoms are usually not a cause for concern and will resolve within a few days.

The treatment does not necessitate downtime. However, you may be given instructions on properly caring for your treated skin afterwards. This will help lessen any side effects and encourage the best results.

FAQ

How long does microdermabrasion treatment take?

The treatment time can vary depending on the patient and their needs. In general, a session will take 40-50 minutes. No downtime is required, and you can return to your normal routine immediately afterwards.

What does it feel like?

Microdermabrasion treatments are usually comfortable for patients. There will be a slight tingling sensation, which might feel like grains of sand are sliding over your skin, but this is not painful.

When will I see the results?

Results of the exfoliating treatment are immediate. However, it may take one or two months for the full effects of your treatment to materialise while your skin renews itself and produces new collagen.

What should I do after treatment?

You will be given instructions on how to care for your skin post-treatment to ensure the best results. Aftercare instructions may include keeping the treated skin clean, applying sunscreen before going outside, and avoiding strenuous exercise. It is also advisable that you not scratch or pick at the treated skin.
