Ready to reveal brighter, healthier skin? While a well-rounded skincare routine will help smooth texture and slough away dead skin cells, sometimes our external barrier needs a little more attention — that’s where microdermabrasion comes in.

This innovative cosmetic technique works to refresh, revive and rejuvenate skin, so it offers that lit-from-within glow we all know and love. If you’re interested in learning more about this in-demand therapy and the benefits of microdermabrasion, we’re breaking down everything you need to know — so you can achieve runway-ready skin once you book your bespoke treatment with Evolution Laser today.

What is microdermabrasion? 

Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment that uses a slightly abrasive instrument to gently exfoliate and buff away the outermost layer of the skin, removing dead cells to reveal fresh, glowing skin underneath. Microdermabrasion will help your products penetrate the skin so you can enjoy improved results throughout your entire skincare regime.

How does this treatment work? 

While it sounds complicated, the treatment itself is relatively straightforward. Firstly, the skin is cleansed to remove all traces of makeup, dirt, grime and SPF, revealing a clean layer that’s prepped and ready for treatment. The minimally abrasive diamond-tip applicator is then moved across the skin in horizontal and vertical motions, gently buffing away dead skin cells. Through our restorative treatment, you can also benefit your lymphatic system by shifting and detoxifying waste within the skin; at the same time, the applicator creates a vacuum seal that removes dirt and debris and stimulates blood flow from the deeper layers of the skin, delivering nutrients creating clearer-looking skin. Before the treatment is complete, your chosen specialist should apply a nourishing serum and moisturiser and may follow up with an SPF to preserve your newly revealed skin from harsh UV rays that can cause damage — not to mention premature signs of ageing.

The benefits of microdermabrasion

If you’ve found yourself wondering, ‘Does microdermabrasion work?’ The answer is yes! Regardless of whether you have oily, combination, ageing or dehydrated skin, most skin types and concerns can benefit from microdermabrasion by sloughing away the skin’s dulled top layer. If you opt for microdermabrasion, you’ll notice the following benefits:

1. Exfoliates skin to reveal a more refreshed and radiant complexion with more clarity.

2. Detoxifies the skin through lymphatic massage and drainage to remove excess fluid and waste from below your skin.

3. Promotes a more even and flawless complexion by correcting, strengthening and clarifying skin tone and texture.

4. After a few sessions, you’ll also notice a reduction in excess sebum production which causes blackheads to form.

Does microdermabrasion hurt?

Aside from the visible, skin-rejuvenating benefits, microdermabrasion — otherwise known as a ‘lunchtime facial’ — is quick, easy and virtually painless, with little to no downtime post-treatment. As soon as your appointment is complete, you can leave the clinic and go about your day as usual — it’s that easy! Plus, it’s proven to be safe and effective for every skin shade, so this treatment will likely make a world of difference to your skin’s overall appearance.

Results you can expect from your treatment plan 

While the effects inevitably vary depending on the severity of your skin issue, the scope of the condition and the number of treatments you undergo, you’ll notice microdermabrasion results within a few days of your first session — think brighter, softer skin!

For long-term results, most patients start with three weekly sessions and then switch to a monthly maintenance regime — however, the time between sessions will depend on your skin’s tolerance to the treatment. When you visit Evolution Laser, our team will assess your skin concerns before creating a tailored treatment plan with a recommended number of sessions you’ll need to undergo to achieve desired results.

The best part of all? There are no side effects to contend with

While a glance at microdermabrasion before and after images prove just how transformative this treatment can be, the advantages don’t stop there! One of the significant benefits of microdermabrasion is that the side effects are minimal. While you may experience short-term redness around the treatment area, this subsides within a couple of hours. If your physician digs too deeply into the skin during your treatment, you may also experience a slight burning or tingling sensation, but these effects are temporary. Given this treatment is a form of exfoliation, we recommend avoiding retinol, acids and peels before your treatment and immediately afterwards. If you often experience cold sore breakouts or tend to scar easily, it’s best to let your clinician know before you undergo a microdermabrasion treatment.
