Your Trusted Microdermabrasion Clinic in Edinburgh

Microdermabrasion is a powerful exfoliation treatment. It works by using tiny microcrystals to strip away dead skin and impurities, while simultaneously stimulating collagen and elastin production to target fine lines and wrinkles. Our anti-ageing experts at Edinburgh can build you a personalised microdermabrasion programme to target your specific skin concerns.

Microdermabrasion – what to expect?

Close Icon

The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin’s surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new cells creating a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin.

Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure, which means that after the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. However, to gain visible improvement we generally recommend a course of sessions because additional treatments cause an increase in circulation within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.

Is microdermabrasion painful?

Close Icon

One of the benefits of microdermabrasion is that it’s virtually pain free. You will feel a subtle suction as the vacuum is placed over the skin and perhaps a tingling sensation. Your skin may look slightly pink after the treatment but this will subside within a few hours. The crystals used are hard enough to disrupt tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin, but small enough not to do any damage or cause discomfort or pain. The only real side effect is a possible temporary redness of the skin, which soon fades.

How many sessions of microdermabrasion will I need?

What to expect after microdermabrasion?

Close Icon

You can return to your normal routine straight after your microdermabrasion treatment and can even reapply your make-up right away. It’s important to protect your newly rejuvenated skin from damaging elements by wearing an SPF daily to protect your skin. Your practitioner will be able to advise on how you can best maintain the results of microdermabrasion. Other existing medical conditions should be highlighted during your consultation and advice will be given on an individual basis.

Can microdermabrasion help with pigmentation?

Close Icon

A course of microdermabrasion treatment can help to reduce unwanted pigmentation marks caused by acne or sun damage.

Which is better microdermabrasion or a peel?

Close Icon

Microdermabrasion or a peel both help to reveal younger, fresher-looking skin. However, the main difference between the two treatments is the application process. With microdermabrasion, the treatment uses a wand, while peels are applied directly to the skin and can vary in strength.The treatment that you choose will depend on your requirements and the results that you want to get.

Does microdermabrasion reduce pores?

Close Icon

One of the benefits of microdermabrasion is that it can help to minimise and reduce pores.
