The treatment for smoother clear skin!
Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenating technique designed to naturally improve the texture & clarity of your skin.
The results are a natural looking, fresher complexion. Lines, wrinkles, acne scars, ingrown hairs and pigmentation irregularities can be improved. The treatment is suitable for men & women of all ages here in our Manchester clinic.
This resurfacing treatment immediately restores smoother, younger looking skin!
We offer two versions – Crystal and Diamond Tip –
In principal microdermabrasion is similar to sand blasting. Fine crystals are directed onto the skin in a precise manner to dislodge dead skin debris. The diamond tip version is crystal free and uses diamond grit encrusted heads which are swept over the skin. This resultant debris is simultaneously vacuumed from the skin. Microdermabrasion stimulates circulation and triggers collagen growth for long term benefits.
Treatment is gradual and progressive improvements are seen with each session.
Our unique treatment protocol ensures a comfortable treatment with little or no irritation – you can resume your normal activities after treatment. Your treatment will include thorough cleansing, extractions of blocked pores and application of appropriate serums, hydrators and SPF – we can apply tinted treatment foundation or mineral make up too!

Microdermabrasion is a treatment which deeply exfoliates skin, helping to diminish sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, reduce enlarged or blocked pores, lighten darkened areas of pigmentation – including under eye area and smooth coarse skin.It can greatly reduce the appearance of blemishes, whiteheads & blackheads. Stretch marks also respond well to this treatment. We use a doctor level microdermabrasion machine to spray fine, sand-like aluminium oxide crystals across the skin’s surface. The uppermost layer of dead skin cells is thus “sand blasted” away. This exposes the fresh skin beneath and stimulates the production of collagen. A microdermabrasion treatment takes 20-30 minutes and involves little or no recovery time.
We are able to alter the intensity of the treatment at any time – we don’t use a pre-programmed machine. Microdermabrasion can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back and hands etc.

After a detailed consultation your skin will be cleansed to prep for treatment. The small hand piece will be passed methodically over the surface of the skin. You’ll be aware of the suction / vacuum sensation of our machine.
We will apply soothing skincare products such as antioxidants, growth factors, peptides, deep hydrators and of course broad spectrum UV protection.
Luxury treatments include treatment masques, serums & foot massage with heated bootees.
Skin may look flushed immediately after treatment but should return to normal in 10 – 30 minutes. Occasionally the skin may feel warm to the touch and be slightly “tingly” for up to 24 hours following treatment.
We are able to adjust the intensity of the machine to suit your comfort level. Our microdermabrasion machine is a doctor quality. We can adjust treatments from very superficial “buffing” to more aggressive / intensive treatments for scars, cellulite & stretch marks.
A course of 5 – 10 sessions at regular intervals of 10 – 14 days is recommended depending on the condition being treated and treatments
typically last 30 minutes, Our Luxury treatments last an hour.
Back or chest areas may take up to an hour.
To obtain optimum results, this treatment may also be used in conjunction with other treatments such as our bespoke treatment facials, injectable skin hydrators, dermal fillers or muscle relaxant injections.
Most patients feel and see a difference after one or two treatments which may be sufficient for special occasions.
Microdermabrasion is always performed by our clinical director Diane Nivern. Our experienced clinical nurse specialist treats deep acne scars, surgical / traumatic scars and stretch marks.
Immediately! There is no healing time, no need to take time off work. You can return to your normal lifestyle immediately.
We’ll recommend and supply you with specific advice and products to use post treatments.
Broadly speaking you’ll need to keep the skin hydrated in the days after treatment and avoid UV exposure. The use of a broad spectrum facial sunblock is strongly recommended to avoid development of hyper pigmentation.
Your skin may feel tingly or feel “tight” or dry in the days after treatment.
It’s important to keep the skin hydrated and use the skincare products that we’ll recommend for you to maximise the benefits of treatment and alleviate any discomfort.
