Diamond Microdermabrasion, man to a beau

Microdermabrasion (MDA), is a mechanical exfoliation procedure for superficial skin resurfacing.

Microdermabrasion is used for treatment of:

  • Photoaging skin

  • Rough skin texture

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Acne simplex

  • Acne vulgaris (not pustules)

  • Fine lines

  • Superficial scars

  • Dull sallow skin colour

  • Enlarged skin pores

  • Keratosis pilaris

  • Thickened scaling skin

  • Dry skin

  • Seborrheic keratosis scaling

  • Enhanced penetration of topical skin products and chemical peels

Advantages of Microdermabrasion:

  • Almost any area of the body requiring exfoliation could be treated with MDA (i.e. face, neck, chest - decolletage, hands, back)

  • Controlled depth of exfoliation

  • Safe for all Fitzpatrick skin types (the Fitzpatrick skin type describes skin type by its reaction to the sunlight)

  • Minimal to no discomfort during the procedure

  • No anesthesia required

  • Minimal risk of complications

  • No recovery time post procedure

  • May be combined with other aesthetic treatments (i.e. Mesotherapy, laser skin rejuvenation like Clear Silk or skin genesis, topical skin products and chemical peels, Healite LED photo therapy)


Microdermabrasion results are progressive. Improvement in skin texture and skin brightness may be observed after a single treatment, more marked improvements including reduction of hyperpigmentation, acne, and fine lines typically require a series of six treatments (may be performed every 2-4 weeks during a treatment series). To maintain the results after the initial series, treatments may be performed every 4-6 weeks.
