Get Radiant Skin with Microdermabrasion Facials in Bentleigh

Microdermabrasion is a quick and minimally invasive procedure that cleanses, refines and smoothens the surface of your skin. Using micro-massage, the dead skin is removed to stimulate healthy vital reactions in the deeper layers and you will be left with soft, glowy and hydrated skin. The treatment suits can be slightly modified to suit all skin types.

However, undergoing a microdermabrasion treatment at a trusted skin clinic, such as DerMission Skin Clinic, is crucial to ensure a safe and effective procedure. At DerMission Skin Clinic, we understand that professional expertise and advanced techniques are crucial to ensuring optimal results. With our certified team of skincare specialists, you can get individualised treatment depending on your skin thickness and skin concerns.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion is a highly effective exfoliation technique that involves the removal of dead skin cells and debris from the surface of your skin. It works by gently abrading the skin with a diamond-tipped wand, which helps to stimulate cell renewal and collagen production. This specialised tool is skillfully glided over your skin, effectively loosening and removing dry, dead skin cells with precision, even in hard-to-reach areas.


To enhance the exfoliation process and promote deep cleansing, the diamond tip microdermabrasion head is connected to a suction wand that creates a vacuum mechanism. This encourages the suction of dead skin cells and debris out of your pores, resulting in reduced congestion and improved circulation. This increased circulation supports oxygenation, enhances nutrient delivery to your skin, and accelerates the overall rejuvenation process. By facilitating the removal of systemic toxins and pathogens, this process supports your skin’s overall health and radiance.

Preparing for a Microdermabrasion Facial

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin exfoliation treatment that needs very little preparation. During the consultation and skin analysis session, you can discuss your skin concerns with our professionals to help tailor the treatment. Talk about any past cosmetic procedures and surgeries, as well as allergies and medical conditions. This will help determine whether a microdermabrasion facial is right for you.

Our trained professionals will explain the process in detail, answer any questions you may have, and ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. Here are a few more things that you need to keep in mind.

  • Discontinue any exfoliation (manual or chemical) at least 3 to 5 days before your treatment : This includes retinol, scrubs, enzymes, serums and any other products that contain acid intended to exfoliate the skin. If you are using tretinoin such as Retin-A you must discontinue it 7 days before the procedure.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure a week before your service : Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can damage the skin and leave the cells more sensitive than normal. If you have sunburn or redness, you must allow 14 days before scheduling an appointment.

  • Discontinue the use of NSAIDS a week before the treatment : These include anti-inflammatory drugs such as Aleve, Advil, or Mortin. NSAIDs thin out platelets which are responsible for blood clotting. Taking such medicine during the treatment can cause bruises or hickeys due to microcirculation.

  • Do not schedule filler or Botox before microdermabrasion : Stack your Botox or filler appointments after microdermabrasion. The procedure is safe only after 3 to 4 days after filler injections.

  • Facial waxing should be scheduled one week before or after the service : Waxing, sugaring and even threading should be scheduled at least 7 days before a microdermabrasion service. Facial sugaring or waxing by nature will remove some of the dead skin, and it will lead to over-exfoliation when paired with microdermabrasion.

  • Wait for 6 months after completing Accutane before Microdermabrasion : Accutane increases skin fragility and sensitivity. You will be at the risk of injury and damage while taking this medication.

How to Take Care of Your Skin After Microdermabrasion?

Taking proper care after the treatment is crucial to get optimal results. Here are a few tips on how you can tend to your skin.

  • Ensure to cleanse your face using a wet cloth and follow up with a rehydrating toner to eliminate any leftover dead skin cells after the treatment.


  • Use a moisturiser once you thoroughly dry the skin. Continue to use it for 4 to 6 days after your treatment as this will prevent any excessive peelings

  • Use sunscreen every day even if you are not stepping out. This is important because microdermabrasion heightens photosensitivity

  • Avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight at least for a week after the procedure

  • Keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables rich in water content

  • To maintain optimal healing and prevent any potential complications, it is crucial to refrain from scratching or picking at the treated area.

  • Do not use any harsh chemicals on your skin for at least a week

  • Avoid the use of depilatory creams, electrolysis, IPL or any other laser procedure for at least two weeks after your treatment

Microdermabrasion is a gentle and non-invasive procedure that typically causes minimal discomfort. Most individuals describe the sensation as a mild scratching or vibrating feeling on the skin.

The effects of the procedure typically last for about a month. The duration can vary depending on your age, how well your skin responds to the treatment and your aftercare. But for most clients, it is common to schedule appointments every 4 weeks.

Yes, the revitalising facial is very effective in reducing the appearance of acne scarring. The top layer of your skin will be physically exfoliated during the procedure and this will encourage cell turnover and stimulate collagen production.

It is generally recommended to avoid applying makeup immediately after a microdermabrasion treatment to allow the skin to breathe and heal. Your skincare specialist will provide you with specific post-treatment instructions, including when it is safe to resume wearing makeup.
