Stimulate your skin with microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is also referred to as a “Power Peel” and works by spraying a jet of fine inert micro-crystals across the skin in an abrasive action.
These crystals also have disinfecting and drying properties and help to clean the skin of infected lesions such as acne. The dead skin cells are lifted from the surface by this abrasion and are then whisked away by vacuum suction and new skin growth is subsequently stimulated. We use microdermabrasion at GMC Cosmedical to return the glow back into your skin.
How is Microdermabrasion different from Surgical Dermabrasion?
It is an excellent alternative to the traditional Dermabrasion which is more aggressive, painful and requires time off work for healing. In contrast, “power peeling” is relatively painless, requires no “down-time” for healing (you can leave the clinic and go back to work), its action is controlled, complications are rare, it is economical and produces great results that are in between peeling and laser treatment.
What are the main benefits of Microdermabrasion?
Apart from the surface abrasive action the treatment also causes intense stimulation of the full thickness of the skin, bringing about many positive responses in the dermis. Results include: improved blood supply and lymph drainage to improve the health and vitality of the skin, as well as substantially increased Collagen and Elastin formation to firm and plump the skin. In the Epidermis, an increased rate of new cell reproduction eliminates the older damaged skin cells from the surface. This results in substantially healthier, glowing skin with better tone and support.

Is it safe?
At our Sydney clinics the microdermabrasion unit we use is a professional medical unit that can give a deeper, safer and more comprehensive treatment than the many salon units available. This technology has been in use in Europe for more than 20 years. It is fully sterilisable and because of its safety the technology has received clearance by both the FDA in the strict USA market and the TGA here in Australia. It is used by doctors and trained medical personnel and you can be assured of the safety and effectiveness of the treatments offered. Side effects are very rare.
Do I need a consultation prior to treatment?
A medical consultation is first carried out to detect any skin or medical conditions that may influence the safe use of the program and to fully assess your skin condition. Dr Calfas or Madeline will then decide on the appropriate course of treatment for you to ensure the best possible results.
Microhydrabrasion is the newest available treatment to achieve a deep, hydrating and smoothing cleanse. Designed to complement the Microdermabrasion treatment, Microhydrabrasion cleanses and soothes the skin using a high-powered water treatment.
When the pores become clogged and congested, blemishes and blackheads appear on the surface of the skin. To deeply clean and improve the appearance of the skin, the pores need a deep, thorough clean. Microhydrabrasion is a gentle treatment method to achieve these results.
The Microhydrabrasion Treatment
A small diamond tip exfoliates and essentially vacuums the skin, penetrating the pores and follicles to remove congestion and blockages. Dead skin is removed from deep within each pore throughout the first round of the treatment. The second round of treatment uses a water system to wash out the pores and follicles, ensuring a deep clean and flushing out of the pores. The use of water ensures the skin is hydrated and deeply cleansed, and the treatment is cooling and smoothing. The use of the diamond tip ensures the perfect level of exfoliation without harsh abrasion.
Microhydrabrasion can be used to effectively treat the following skin concerns:
- Dull/Lifeless skin
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Both Microdermabrasion and Microhydrabrasion increase microcirculation, improving the appearance of the skin by smoothing out imperfections and increasing the circulation of the skin’s natural nutrients and healing properties.
