Microdermabrasion Treatment (MDA)
Microdermabrasion is a method by which very fine crystals are vacuumed across the skin under pressure with a tiny vacuum-cleaner-like tip. The newer systems don’t use crystals but instead tiny diamond chips embedded in the tip to provide the abrasion. It’s nice to use the newer crystal-free systems but not essential also, the newer systems offer the ability to infuse therapeutic agents at the same time that the microdermabrasion is being performed. For example, an aesthetician can infuse a solution of salicylic acid, which helps to clean out the pores while the microdermabrasion is working Or, hyaluronic acid, could be infused to add extra moisture, Microdermabrasion can cause irritation or inflammation if the microdermabrasion is too aggressive for your skin type.
Depending on how much acne or pigment you have and how sensitive your skin is, approximately five microdermabrasions are done one to four weeks apart, followed by a maintenance treatment about every four to eight weeks, You may have seen the terms Parisian peel, diamond peel, or lunch-time peel, Most of these all refer to the same process – microdermabrasion.

- refreshing skin texture and improving “glow”
- helping to treat certain types of acne, clean out pores
- helping with melasma when done in a series of 4-5
- after some lasers to speed shedding of brown pigment
