Is microdermabrasion safe for all skin types?

Yes, anyone can benefit from microdermabrasion treatment. It improves the overall appearance of the skin giving skin a healthy glow and youthful appearance. Microdermabrasion is also extremely effective at treating a number of skin problems. It can be used on the face and body making it a good treatment for acne scarring on the back for example.

Acne and Acne Scarring

Microdermabrasion works by removing the top layers of dead skin cells from the surface making it particularly effective in treating acne. Getting rid of the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin unclogs the pores reducing the chance of new spots developing.

Fine lines, wrinkles and ageing skin

The vacuum action of the microdermabrasion treatment works to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. As we age elastin and collagen production starts to slow down. The combination of collagen stimulation and increased skin renewal will improve the condition of the skin’s surface smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

Dry, dehydrated skin with uneven skin tone

Normally skin renews itself approximately every 28 days. Removing the dead skin cells from the top layers of the skin, microdermabrasion speeds up the rate at which skin would normally renew itself revealing new, fresh skin and giving a radiant glow.


Microdermabrasion can’t cure cellulite however it can stimulate the circulation improving blood flow to the area. To improve the appearance of cellulite you should drink plenty of water and exercise regularly.

Stretch marks, pigmentation and blemishes

Microdermabrasion can vastly improve the appearance of pigmentation and stretch marks. The microdermabrasion treatment stimulates the area being targeted to produce more collagen and speed up the skin renewal process, improving skin condition and diminishing the appearance of stretch marks and discolouration of the skin.

How quickly can I expect to see results?

You will see results immediately and with each subsequent treatment your skin will continue to look progressively better.

How many treatments should I have?

I recommend a course of 8, however I will talk this through with you following your initial consultation. People with acne or acne scarring might need more treatments and I recommend a monthly maintenance treatment after each course has finished to help maintain the results achieved.

How often should I have microdermabrasion?

Treatments are usually performed every 7 to 10 days but I will confirm this with you.

Are there any side effects to the treatment?

After the treatment, the skin may feel tight with mild redness. Therefore it is important that you use a good moisturiser. These effects normally subside within 24 hours of treatment.

I have suffered from reactions to other facials, will this be the same with microdermabrasion?

Diamond microdermabrasion uses a sterile applicator with low risk of allergic reaction. I will always provide a patch test on the back of your forearm for added reassurance.

Is microdermabrasion only suitable for use on the face?

No, microdermabrasion is fantastic on pigmentation, lines and stretch marks anywhere on the body.
