Medical Microdermabrasion in Cardiff
Microdermabrasion is an FDA approved, clinically proven and celebrated skin resurfacing treatment that creates flawless results for problem skin, pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, and scarring. Microdermabrasion has been proven to visibly and dramatically improve the texture and appearance of the skin. The treatment should reduce and smooths lines and wrinkles, scarring and pigmentation to produce more beautiful rejuvenated skin.*
Our microdermabrasion facial doesn’t inject any artificial or even natural substances. It works with microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin. Once the treatment has removed dead and tired cells, your body should work to replace them with fresh, healthier looking skin.*

*Disclaimer – Results may vary from person to person
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-chemical, non-invasive method of skin resurfacing. Microdermabrasion is designed to increase the blood supply, providing nutrients necessary for skin regeneration, repair, and increased cellular turnover which improves the skin's elasticity and texture, and balances the pigment. We use DermaGenesis®, a medical microdermabrasion system suitable for men and women of all skin types, ages and indications. The treatment utilises fine aluminium oxide crystals to provide safe, effective exfoliation and rejuvenation of the superficial layers of the skin. Our system also has a wide range of controls so the crystal flow and vacuuming can be completely tailored to you.*
- When will I see results?
You should see results immediately, but the best results come after the third treatment.*
- How many treatments do I need?
When it comes to microdermabrasion, it is important to have a series of treatments. This depends on your skin. We will discuss this with you during our consultation, but usually 6 to 10 are recommended for the best results. These initial treatments can be spaced one to two weeks apart. From that point, you can continue to receive one treatment on a monthly basis for the best maintenance.*
- Is there any down time?
No! Microdermabrasion is a safe and gentle procedure. You will need to protect your skin with moisturiser and sunblock for 48 hours after the treatment and may experience mild redness and sloughing/peeling. You should be able to return to work immediately, which is why many people have microdermabrasion treatments on their lunch breaks!
- Is microdermabrasion good for acne scarring?
Professional microdermabrasion can help to diminish superficial acne scarring by removing the top layer of the skin. However, deeper acne scarring requires a more invasive procedure, like deep chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing or micro needling.*
- Is it safe?
Microdermabrasion is FDA cleared and is safe for all skin types and colours.*
