What is Medical Microdermabrasion?Mechanical exfoliation of the skin, removing the upper layers (stratum corneum) to produce a refreshed, renewed and retexturised appearance. The process uses a vacuum suction and fine abrasive crystals to polish and resurface all skin types. As we age our skin cell turnover slows down as does collagen and elastin production, Microdermabrasion is like an accelerated exfoliation it helps to promote collagen, elastin and cell nutrition and speeds up cell production. Excellent for the treatment of acne, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation (brown spots) resurfacing and rejuvenation and the removal of blackheads and blocked pores.

There is only one, though minor, risk associated with microdermabrasion: tampering with the skin’s color balance (in other words, you may get dark or light patches from micro dermabrasion). It’s important to remember that scarring and pigmentary changes are common complications for other skin rejuvenation techniques, like laser resurfacing, dermal abrasion and chemical peels.
The reason the risk is so small with microderm abrasion is because it’s a very gentle procedure. It only removes the top layer of skin (which is formed only of dead skin cells), leaving the live tissue underneath intact. However, it’s a well known fact that people with darker skin (Type IV, V and VI on the Fitzpatrick Scale — see below) are more prone to pigment problems and while the risk of micro dermabrasion tampering with the pigmentary equilibrium is very small (smallest of all rejuvenation procedures) with darker skin types, it’s still there.
