There’s nothing quite like long summer days on the beach – but all that sun exposure can wreak havoc on your skin. Likewise, years of laughter (while you wouldn’t trade those great memories for anything) will eventually leave fine lines on your face that betray your age.
In fact, a host of factors play roles in the appearance of your skin, from sun exposure and facial expressions to acne, pigmentation caused by hormonal changes, age-induced dark spots, and much more. Rejuvenate your skin with our Microdermabrasion treatments available at our Darwin & Brisbane clinics.
Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment that involves exfoliating and removing the superficial layer of skin and the dry, dead skin cells found in this layer that make the skin look dull, tired, and aged. By aiding the skin’s natural cellular turnover process, microdermabrasion results in the generation of new skin cells and a fresher, more vibrant appearance.
Microdermabrasion facials use fine crystals that exfoliate the skin surface and vacuum suction that serves two purposes: to remove the crystals and to promote lymphatic drainage, thereby improving circulation. With clinically proven results, microdermabrasion is effective for all skin types.
Treatments are applied at two-week intervals, preventing congestion of the skin and enhancing the penetration of your cosmeceutical skin care serums. The result is brighter, younger looking skin.
Microdermabrasion treatments cause only minimal discomfort, so you won’t even need a topical anaesthetic. Your consultation and treatment combined will take about one hour.
For the first 24 hours after treatment, you may experience some mild redness. Additional, slight skin exfoliation will continue to occur for three to five days, and this can be concealed easily with your everyday moisturiser.
It can also be used to encourage lymphatic drainage of the face, which can reduce water retention and restore youthful balance to your facial contours.
Our microdermabrasion treatments are $119 each.
Individual results vary depending on several factors, such as your overall health, your personal lifestyle choices, and your body’s response to cellular renewal.
Microdermabrasion is commonly used in conjunction with other medical-grade skin treatments and as a regular maintenance treatment to help our clients keep their skin looking its absolute best at any age.

It is recommended that you take it easy for 24hrs post your microdermabrasion treatment. Exercising post treatment can put excess heat into the skin leading to undesirable stinging and we want to avoid excess sweating on the face. Exercising outside will place you at risk of sun exposure which can result in post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It is important to keep your skin clean and hydrated in a cooler environment.
In clinic we use a Clairderm Crystal Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion should not be painful. Fine crystals are used to provide a superficial exfoliation. The settings can always be turned up or down do depending on you are feeling and the treatment you prefer.
A treatment regime will be determined as per your skin’s requirement. Microdermabrasion treatment is great as a monthly facial treatment to freshen and brighten your skin or use it as a supportive treatment 3 monthly with your skin needling.
If you were looking to work on improving acne scars then you could do a course of up to 8 on a weekly basis. Crystal microdermabrasion only works for depressed acne scars that lie flat against the epidermis. It won’t improve ice pick scars, which are deeper than other acne scars. We would recommend a medical grade skin needling treatment to address ice pick acne scarring.
No, it is not recommended. You need to wait until your skin has healed. Wait until two weeks after the treatment before commencing dermaplaning.
Crystal Microdermabrasion will gently exfoliate away the thick, outer layer of skin and can improve the appearance and texture of blackheads. The suction method pulls out sebum from the skin and through micro lymphatic draining brings clogged pores to the surface.
As your skin heals, you should use gentle, non-irritating products. Only use a gentle cleanser. Don’t use any other exfoliating (psychical or chemical) products for three days after your treatment. You should avoid touching, rubbing, or picking your skin, which can slow the healing process.
After microdermabrasion, your skin will be slightly red and feel dry for approximately 24 hours. Use moisturizer and broad-spectrum/zinc sunscreen. Makeup can be applied 24hrs post treatment.
In clinic our Crystal Microdermabrasion treatment is $120.00.
