What is microdermabrasion


Get the lowdown on this staple skin treatment that exfoliates and clarifies for brighter, clearer skin.

Exfoliation is a key step in your skincare routine. It helps clear skin of congestion, removes any dead skin cells that may have built up on the surface and cleanses deeply to support healthier, brighter skin – so if it’s not already a part of your regular regime, it’s worth looking into. 

While there are plenty of skincare products available for skin exfoliation, you’ll see more effective results with an in-clinic treatment such as a microdermabrasion. This powerful, yet gentle skin treatment is well loved by many skincare junkies for its clarifying, cleansing properties.  

How does microdermabrasion work? 

At Skinsmiths, we combine microdermabrasion with thermal laser as part of our signature Detox Treatment. 

First, for the microdermabrasion step of the treatment, we use a suction device with a specially shaped tip to exfoliate and clean out impurities from the skin. The next step is thermal laser. Your Skin Technician will apply a laser light to penetrate deeper into the skin, creating controlled inflammation. This in turn triggers the body’s natural wound healing response, which stimulates the production of more collagen – giving you smoother, stronger skin. 

To finish off the treatment, a hydrating serum is applied followed by a sun protection product. 

What are the benefits of microdermabrasion? 

The main benefit of microdermabrasion is exfoliation, which helps support healthy, glowing skin by ensuring it’s free from any buildup of dead skin cells. While your skin naturally undergoes a process of repair and renewal, over time factors such as age or environmental influences can make this less effective.  

Microdermabrasion helps exfoliate and stimulate circulation, leaving you with skin that’s cleansed, clarified and radiant. By combining microdermabrasion with thermal laser and a hydrating serum, our Detox Treatment also helps improve texture and soothe the skin, for an overall rejuvenating effect.
