What is Microdermabrasion?

A deep-exfoliating treatment, microdermabrasion refreshes dull skin by buffing the dead surface layer away to help reveal the fresh new skin underneath.

Specially designed machines gently ‘sandblast’ the skin, then draw away loosened debris. Your skin’s natural rejuvenation process can be stimulated, as the action encourages collagen production, stimulates the growth of new cells, and unclogs pores – helping to give you smoother, fresher and more youthful-looking skin.

These days, microdermabrasion treatments are widely available, but not all treatments are equal! Whilst it is a relatively gentle treatment, it is imperative the clinician performing yours is experienced and qualified, to ensure your treatment gets you the best results, and doesn’t injure your skin.

At The Cosmetic Clinic, we offer a signature, 9-step procedure performed by our highly experienced and fully qualified technicians. They will carefully assess your skin type and concerns and adapt your treatment to suit.

1. Cleanse

We double cleanse your skin to prepare it for treatment. The first cleanse can remove makeup and debris from the skin. We then cleanse a second time with an AHA cleanser, to begin loosening the dead skin cells.

2. Exfoliation

Skin is massaged using a glycolic scrub, to help further loosen the dead skin cells.

3. Mask

An AHA/BHA mask is applied. The powerful combination of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids combine to prepare the skin for the microdermabrasion by helping to break down any remaining dead skin cells, ensuring the treatment is thorough.

4. Microdermabrasion

Skin is treated in three passes using our industry-leading diamond head microdermabrasion machines, removing all remaining dead cells to help reveal fresh, healthy skin.

5. Extraction

Using a micro-lance needle or sterile purette, we carefully work across your skin to remove any remaining millia, blackheads and congestion, to help ensure your skin is looking fresh and clear.

6. Peel

A post-treatment peel, carefully selected to specifically work with your skin type, is applied to help enhance collagen production.

7. Nourish

Now those dead cells are out of the way, it’s time to feed your skin. Rejuvenate 15 Serum is applied, adding nutrients and can leaving skin glowing.

8. Hydration

A moisturiser, chosen for your specific skin type, is applied to help hydrate your skin.

9. Protection

Sun protection is your best friend when it comes to preventing the visible signs of ageing. To complete your treatment, our Age Defence SPF50+ sunscreen is applied to treated skin to help defend it from NZ’s harsh sunlight.
