About the treatment

Popular with both women and men, Derma Genesis Medical Microdermabrasion treatment is a quick and painless deep exfoliating treatment, that removes dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production. Microdermabrasion treats many common skin concerns such as dull tired skin, congested, oily, dry and uneven skin tone and texture.

How does Microdermabrasion work?

A microdermabrasion facial involves medical grade crystals vacuumed across the outer surface of the skin. The crystals remove the outermost layer by exfoliation, exposing living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients. The underlying epidermis is also stimulated promoting new collagen which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of ageing. Microdermabrasion goes deeper than other modes of exfoliation to help the skin replenish itself by stimulating cell regrowth.

More than a just a facial, Medical Microdermabrasion offers instant results without any downtime. At our award winning Laser and Skin Clinics in Dublin, Mullingar and Athlone we only use the most advanced technology and with over 10 years experience we have found Microdermabrasion with Derma Genesis® delivers superior results compared to less effective machines and technology. Microdermabrasion works best when used in a series of treatments. For optimum results we recommend combining this treatment with Superficial Skin Peels. At your consultation we can customise a treatment plan for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Microdermabrasion is performed by using a hand piece that the nurse/therapist passes over the skin two or three times. This evenly removes the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin. The underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the abrasion and the vacuum. This promotes the generation of new collagen, which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of ageing.

Yes. Microdermabrasion machines are manufactured at two different levels: aesthetic-grade and medical-grade. Not to be confused with lower strength microdermabrasion systems where treatments cost significantly less, medical-grade microdermabrasion on the other hand is FDA approved for a deeper exfoliation, which translates into more impressive and lasting results for you. At The Laser and Skin Clinic we only use Medical-grade Microdermabrasion.

Following treatment, your skin will initially appear a little pink, dependent on how sensitive your skin is, but this will settle down after a short period of time, usually within half an hour.

There is no recovery time necessary with a Microdermabrasion Facial, for this reason it is the treatment of choice in the days leading up to a big event, wedding or special occasion. You could easily have the treatment on your lunch hour. Although rare some clients experience flakiness of the skin and dry patches.

The benefits of Microdermabrasion are endless and is one of the most requested non-invasive cosmetic treatments in our clinics. It is also safe to use on all skin types and a fantastic treatment for anyone who wants their skin to have a healthy luminous glow. However, it is particularly helpful in treating specific skin conditions, including dull, rough texture, congestion, sun damaged and seborrhea (oily skin).

The beauty about Microdermabrasion is that is actually enhances the results of other skin rejuvenation treatments. Microdermabrasion is also the perfect treatment to combine with Skin Peels or Dermapen microneedling depending on your skin’s concerns.

Exfoliation has many benefits. The most obvious is the elimination of the dead skin, which allows cosmeceutical treatment products to better penetrate the skin. By removing this layer, called the stratum corneum, irregular pigment can be tackled, too. You’ll also see improvement in the skin’s overall appearance and texture. Microdermabrasion goes deeper than other modes of exfoliation to help the skin replenish itself by stimulating cell regrowth.
