Beautiful, revitalised skin does not need to be a painful process. Microdermabrasion or microhydrabrasion can help renew your skin and boost your confidence – all with a comfortable procedure.


Microdermabrasion and microhydrabrasion are very similar treatments that can improve dull skin, clear clogged pores and promote a more vibrant, glowing complexion.

Beauty therapy is a very challenging yet rewarding job. It puts a huge smile on my face when I make a difference in my clients lives. There is a huge amount of job satisfaction. I enjoy working with such a professional, talented and compassionate team. How lucky am I.

Many things in our body change with age – and the skin is no exception. With time, the natural process of cell replacement slows down, but microdermabrasion and microhydrabrasion are controlled ways to deeply exfoliate the skin to get rid of impurities and dead skin cells. Underneath, your skin is still youthful and vibrant, and this process exposes the smooth texture that is hiding just below the surface.

Skin Institute’s microdermabrasion technology involves a diamond tip moving over the skin, creating a controlled exfoliation process. The exfoliated cells are then removed with a special vacuum device. In microhydrabrasion, cool water is also used in the process.

Depending what sort of area you need treated, we can adjust the depth of microdermabrasion or microhydrabrasion to suit.


Microdermabrasion and microhydrabrasion are both comfortable procedures that last for about 30 minutes. Sometimes multiple sessions will be recommended, in order to achieve the results that you’re looking for. The treatments can be used in conjunction with other appearance medicine procedures provided by Skin Institute in order to improve the results.

After a microdermabrasion or microhydrabrasion treatment, your skin may be a little red, but this should go away within a few hours. Otherwise, you can get back to your normal activities right after treatment.


When you have a microdermabrasion or microhydrabrasion treatment, you can expect to see the following benefits:

  • Improved appearance of previously dull skin
  • Clear clogged pores to reduce skin congestion
  • Promote a more vibrant, glowing complexion
