With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular, non-invasive procedures for skin resurfacing. It is a means of mechanical skin exfoliation which uses a handheld wand to work away dead of damaged cells from the face and body. It is an incredible way to look younger, brighter, healthier and more vibrant, without undergoing anything aggressive or invasive.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Microdermabrasion is, in fact, a much less invasive alternative to traditional 'dermabrasion' which can leave the skin is red, swollen and extremely sensitive for a matter of weeks. This method instead allows for smoother looking skin and a significant reduction in the appearance of superficial wrinkles, scars, large pores, acne and age spots in a way which is entirely free from pain, lasers or harsh chemicals.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle, fast and effective way of reducing superficial skin damage, restoring a refreshed and more youthful complexion. It is means of precision exfoliation, commonly used to rejuvenate, resurface and rid the face and neck of all sorts of imperfections.
Microdermabrasion is also well-regarded for its speed. After just one session, skin will look immediately revitalised with a visible reduction in acne, scarring, age spots, pigmentation, fine lines and even wrinkles. Better yet, with no downtime whatsoever, you can return to work within the hour!
Microdermabrasion is the perfect treatment for those on the hunt for a cosmetic pick-me-up, without space in the calendar for a lengthy recovery. Instead, turn some heads as you leave the clinic feeling thoroughly buffed and polished; your glowing new skin beginning to take the place of the old.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
You can think of Microdermabrasion as a method of cosmetic exfoliation which does to the skin what gentle sanding might do to an uneven surface.
A handheld machine known as an abrader is used to work away at the skin, buffing away dead or damaged skin cells using an abrasive headed wand which gently rotates and pulses. This removes the top layer of dead skin cells and exposes the ‘fresh’ ones underneath. This also allows practitioners to ensure that an even texture and tone is achieved. Following this, your skin is soothed with a rich nourishing sun block.
Microdermabrasion is great for improving skin texture, tone and boosting your overall complexion. If you suffer with superficial scarring, congested pores, pigmentation, dry skin or even just an excess of oil; Microdermabrasion can drastically reduce these complaints - sometimes even eradicating them entirely.
Not only will it prompt the skin to replenish the cells in your problem areas specifically, but Microdermabrasion will increase your body's production of collagen and elastin for cushiony, plump skin; uncover those beautifully healthy cells beneath and facilitate much better absorption of skincare products. Talk about optimum skin health.
Microdermabrasion is astonishingly cost-effective, beginning at just £100 a session. The best possible results are obtained after a few sessions of abrasion, and therefore courses of 6 sessions are available at the Harley Street Skin Clinic from £450.
Microdermabrasion helps to encourage new cell growth, and therefore results are permanent. Having said this, if your concern is ageing, Microdermabrasion will not slow down the ageing process full stop and you should expect your immediate results to change a little over time. Diligent skincare, a healthy lifestyle and regular maintenance treatments will help you maintain optimum results for as long as possible.
Your skin will look cleaner and healthier after just one treatment of Microdermabrasion, however major changes which require a deeper reach - such as a substantial reduction of wrinkles and scars - will require between 3 and 5 sessions.
With regards to duration, a session of Microdermabrasion should take between 30-60 minutes.
Short answer: no.
Microdermabrasion may feel a little uncomfortable or scratchy but shouldn't hurt if done correctly by a qualified professional. After treatment, patients can feel a little tender, experiencing a sensation similar to minor sunburn or a particularly thorough exfoliation but this is all.
It is common for skin to remain a little tender and red after Microdermabrasion. All of this redness should subside after 24 hours, although can linger for up to 48 hours on particularly sensitive skin.
Skin will also feel quite tight, dry and thirsty for a fair few days following treatment. Make sure to liberally apply moisturiser and increase your intake of water to accommodate this.
Microdermabrasion will not require any recovery time at all. In fact, following a session you will look positively glowing, having had all of your dead skill cells buffed away and replaced by an immediate influx of collagen. You will, however, appear quite dry so it is important to keep both your skin and yourself hydrated as you heal. Make sure to drink plenty of water, as well as sparingly apply both a rich moisturiser and high quality SPF.
Following Microdermabrasion, you are able to return to work immediately - albeit slightly pink. Not to worry, though. Any residual redness can easily be disguised with a touch of mineral makeup and will vanish within 24-48 hours.
