Does your skin look dull and lifeless?
Would you like a clearer, brighter complexion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment that exfoliates to remove dead skin.
Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics medical microdermabrasion is a safe and effective treatment that can be used at any age to revitalise and improve the complexion of the skin. After your microdermabrasion treatment, your skin will feel refreshed, soft, smooth and rejuvenated. To get optimal microdermabrasion results, Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics, unlike many other clinics, offers 60-minute treatments to deeply cleanse while infusing antioxidants deep into your skin. For the best results, we recommend a series of microdermabrasion treatments with regular appointments after this to maintain improvements.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, anti-ageing skin treatment that accelerates the exfoliation of dead skin cells. Our medical microdermabrasion treatment can be adjusted to suit all types of skin types and skin conditions, resulting in a procedure that’s personally tailored to suit your needs.
Our medical microdermabrasion provides exceptional results for conditions, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne and acne scars
- Sun damaged skin
- Whiteheads and blackheads,
- Open and enlarged pores
- Age Spots
- Dull and lifeless skin
Microdermabrasion is different to dermabrasion as it’s a safe, painless non-invasive treatment that focuses on only removing your surface layer of dead skin. Dermabrasion is an invasive skin procedure that removes several layers of your skin at once. Patients undergoing dermabrasion treatments will need to have local or general anaesthetic.
How does microdermabrasion work?
Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics 3-step microdermabrasion skin treatment includes an Exfoliation mechanism, Vacuum mechanism and Lymphatic Drainage. Using the MicroPlus+ handheld wand our highly trained and experienced therapists gently remove the surface layer of your dead skin. As the device passes over your skin surface a few times, it draws in air to create a vacuum which picks up dead skin cells from the exfoliating tip. This painless, highly effective process stimulates natural collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in hydrated, soft and glowing skin. MicroPlus+ uses a gentle vacuuming system with diamond tips that gently removes dead skin cells, polishes the skin and unclogs your skin pores. With no downtime, this non-invasive treatment perfectly prepares your skin’s surface for antioxidant infusions.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
Our microdermabrasion considerably improves your skin’s appearance as a result of gently removing your dead skin cells. Our patients that have acne breakouts report these are significantly reduced as a result of their regular microdermabrasion treatments. As a safe and non-invasive facial treatment, microdermabrasion improves blood flow and circulation resulting in a smoother, younger and more hydrated complexion.
Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates the top layer of dead skin using three methods, including:
- Mechanical abrasion
- Gentle vacuum suction to stimulate collagen production and clear congested pores and
- Lymphatic drainage.
Our microdermabrasion treatment allows the epidermis (top layer of your skin) to regenerate, leaving you with youthful radiance to your complexion that everyone will notice.
Other benefits of microdermabrasion include:
- A bright, clear and glowing complexion
- Reduced breakouts as a result of unclogged skin pores
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles, sunspots, blemishes and acne
- Improved lymphatic drainage

What to expect after your microdermabrasion treatment
After your microdermabrasion treatment, your skin may feel tight for a couple of days. This feeling is similar to when you’ve been exposed to wind or sun. You may also notice your skin peeling moderately.
If your face has sun damage or scars, your skin may appear slightly swollen and red for a few hours after your microdermabrasion treatment. For patients with sensitive skin, this may last for a few days.
