A microdermabrasion is a physical exfoliation treatment that uses very fine crystal particles combined with gentle suction to clear away the dull top layers of your skin. Microdermabrasion is suitable for most skin types however it is not recommended for those with moderate-severe active acne.
Before the Treatment
Prior to any skin treatment at COCO Skin Clinic you will receive a thorough consultation with your Dermal Therapist to determine if this is the right treatment for you. During this consultation, you will be able to ask questions and have any concerns addressed.
During the Treatment
Microdermabrasion has minimal discomfort. Your treatment will begin with a double hot-towel cleanse. The depth of microdermabrasion will be decided once your treatment provider assess your skin’s condition and your concerns. Following your microdermabrasion treatment, luxurious cosmeceutical skincare will be applied.
After the Treatment
You are likely to have mild redness over the treated area which will resolve in a short time. Depending on the intensity of the treatment you may experience flakiness for a couple of days post treatment. Based on the condition of your skin, you may find the application of your regular skincare routine ‘tingly’ the night of a microdermabrasion treatment. In some cases, you may be asked to avoid certain products.
