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. The treatment 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 14 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 or Advanced Clinical Facials. 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.

You will notice an immediate improvement after your first treatment. Regardless of your skin’s condition, most clients will notice an improvement in their skin’s appearance. Many clients report their skin to be softer, smoother and younger looking immediately after treatment. To get the best results a course of 4-6 treatments is usually recommended. A period of 1-2 weeks in between each treatment is required. 

Treatment takes approximately takes 30 minutes to complete. When combined with a Skin Peel Of Advanced Clinical Facial it can take longer.

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.

Microdermabrasion costs €70 per treatment. Discounts are available on packages with Buy 3 Get 1 Free. This treatment can also be combined with Skin Peels for maximum results. Combining Skin Peels or Advanced Clinical Facials with Microdermabrasion price ranges from €120-€150 per treatment depending on the type of Skin Peel. View our current Special Offers.

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. Makeup can be worn immediately after treatment if preferred. We stock gloMinerals makeup at our clinics which can be applied after treatment.

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 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 Advanced Clinical Facials or Skin Peels 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.

Although Microdermabrasion is an excellent exfoliation treatment it will not provide dramatic visible results in the reduction of sun damage and pigmentation. To successfully treat pigmentation we may recommend a course of Skin Peels, Laser Resurfacing or Cosmeceutical Skincare which will be determined at your consultation.

Microdermabrasion is an excellent exfoliation treatment however it will not provide dramatic visible results in the reduction of acne scarring. To successfully treat scarring we may recommend a combination of Medical Microneedling, Laser Rejuvenation or Laser Resurfacing which will be determined upon assessing your skin at your consultation.

This treatment is an excellent exfoliation treatment it will not provide dramatic visible results in the reduction of lines & wrinkles. To successfully treat ageing skin for concerns such as lines and wrinkles we may recommend a combination of alternative Skin Rejuvenation Treatments which will be determined upon assessing your skin at your consultation.

After your consultation you can book for treatment in Dublin, Mullingar and Athlone clinics.

I initially booked an appointment 11 years ago for laser hair removal which I was slightly conscious about. I had no need to worry whatsoever as the staff made me feel at ease straightaway, and i was pleased to see they used the highest grade machine on the market for my treatment.So impressed was I by that experience, I looked into other treatments and have since benefited from Skin Peels, Microdermabrasion, Dermapen Microneedling, Chemical Peels, RioBlush CarBoxytherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma treatment, and thread vein removal. It's safe to say that my skin is now in the best condition ever in my life and the complementary Sunscreen, Antioxidant, Retinol, Glycolic, Salicylic, and Hyaluronic Acid products that I now use religiously keep it safe and glowing between visits to the Clinic. I can't thank Anna and her staff enough for the expert service and education they provide and I look forward to being a returning customer for many years to come.

The Laser and Skin Clinic on Baggot Street provides a friendly, professional service that I have recommended to friends. I underwent three sessions of micro-needling and saw a significant improvement to shallow acne scarring on my cheeks. At 36, I was unsure if my skin could heal that well so I was very pleased. The staff is very approachable and knowledgeable and I received excellent post-treatment and other care advice. I would highly recommend The Laser and Skin Clinic.
