A simple, yet effective and painless solution to a wide range of skin conditions. Microdermabrasion smoothes your skin, stimulates collagen production, reveals radiance and renews natural luminosity.
The aging process takes a toll on our skin, creating fine lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and colour. The most popular areas for microdermabrasion are the face, eyes, neck, chest, cleavage, back, upper arms, and hands, although other areas can also be effectively treated.
Microdermabrasion is a versatile treatment for:
- Ageing skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull or tired looking Complexion
- Uneven texture
- Congested skin and blocked pores
- Open pores
What exactly is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that gently smoothes the outer layer of skin. It promotes new skin cell growth and reveals fresh, healthy skin. The skin is resurfaced but not broken. The process also boosts collagen production and stimulates the cell renewal process beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance.
What is Diamond Tip skin resurfacing?
The Diamond Tip skin resurfacing is the latest technology in microdermabrasion. The Diamond Tip microdermabrasion utilizes a diamond encrusted wand to vacuum and exfoliate the skin. The outcome is a uniform abrasion without the adverse effects of loose particles, gritty residue, burning, irritations and skin reactions.
How will I benefit from a microdermabrasion?
- Reduces hyper-pigmentation
- Rejuvenates skin and boosts the cell renewal process
- Lightens age spots on face and body (such as sun spots on the hands)
- Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
- Unblocks pores

Is microdermabrasion safe?
Yes. Microdermabrasion is safe for most skin types and conditions. It is a gentle mechanical resurfacing which provides more dramatic results than other skincare treatments.
How does it work?
The skin resurfacing wand is smoothed over the outer layer of skin, gently exfoliating the surface with natural diamond chips, while at the same time, vacuuming the dead skin cells away. This is done in a safe, precise, and controlled method. Exfoliation occurs as the wand is passed over the skin.
Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells, leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy, new skin cells.
This procedure is a wonderful alternative or compliment to chemical peels. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive, non-surgical, pain free and requires no downtime from work or most other activities after treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The length of the treatment and the recommended number of sessions will vary depending on you skin type and condition. To see a significant change in your skin, four to six sessions, spaced one to two weeks apart, is most common with a maintenance treatment every month or two. You will experience softer, smoother skin after the first treatment, and continue to see improvement with additional treatments.
Is it painful?
The treatment is not painful, most people enjoy the sensation. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive, pain-free, and requires no downtime after treatment.

How will my skin look after the treatment?
