What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliating treatment designed to smooth and soften the texture of the skin.


How does Microdermabrasion work?

A diamond tipped handpiece is moved over the skin, which gently vacuums away dead skin cells and debris that can clog the pores. Most skin types can benefit from an increased exfoliation that microdermabrasion provides however very sensitive or skins that have active breakouts may benefit from skin peels instead. At Image By Laser our microdermabrasion is incorporated into a 30 minute facial treatment. First we thoroughly cleanse the skin, followed by a personalised microdermabrasion tailored to suit your skin concerns. After the exfoliation a hydrating mask is applied, before being gently massaged in which helps it absorb into the skin. The treatment is finished with a moisturiser and sunscreen. Generally the skin will have a healthy pink glow after a treatment due to the suction of the handpiece stimulating blood flow to the skin. Microdermabrasion if taken as a course can be done as often as weekly though sensitive skins may prefer to have the treatments fortnightly.


What technology do you use for Microdermabrasion?

We use diamond microdermabrasion at Image by Laser as we find it to be gentle yet effective and avoids the use of messy crystal type microdermabrasion.


What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is perfect to have as a pick-me-up for the skin before a big event, or for more textural concerns to improve the appearance of open pores, fine lines and acne scarring, can be taken as a course of 6 treatments. Your skin will feel velvety soft and have a healthy glow.

Micro Revive Treatment

Incorporating Omnilux Revive into a microdermabrasion treatment will work not only by smoothing the skin’s texture but by deeply hydrating and nourishing the skin with moisture. The Omnilux red light has an added benefit of detoxifying the skin as well as stimulating collagen production and plumping fine lines.
