Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that often uses tiny crystals to exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dead, dry skin cells resulting in younger looking skin. It is a skin rejuvenation treatment that is used to treat discoloration, light scarring, stretch marks and sun damage. There are other issues that microdermabrasion in Dubai can do such as:
- Improve hyperpigmentation
- Improve blackheads and age spots
- Exfoliate the skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- mildly Improve the appearance of stretch mark
- Eliminate or reduce enlarged pores
- Treat acne and acne scars
Microdermabrasion also helps in thickening collagen in your skin, resulting in younger looking complexion. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in your skin which is abundant when you are young, making your skin appear taut and smooth. But the production of collagen in our bodies tends to decline as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
The first step towards undergoing skin rejuvenation with microdermabrasion is to consult with a Certified Dermatologist or a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Microdermabrasion involves the use of a diamond-tipped wand or microparticles to remove the epidermis (top layer of the skin) and stimulate new skin growth.
There are two techniques of microdermabrasion treatments:
- One technique involves a hand-held device that streams tiny crystals across the skin. An attached vacuum then simultaneously suctions those exfoliating crystals back into the machine, along with the loosened, dead skin cells.
- The other technique uses a diamond-tip wand that is moved gently across your skin to exfoliate.
Each treatment lasts about half an hour and you might feel mild scratching during the procedure due to the removal of the superficial skin cells. You will also notice a vibrating sensation akin to a massage as well as a suction mechanism to lift off the dead skin cells.
There is no recovery period or downtime associated with microdermabrasion. After your treatment, your Plastic Surgeon/Dermatologist may recommend a special facial product or moisturizer to enhance and prolong your results.
After the treatment, you may notice some skin redness, bruising and increased sensitivity to the sun but these side effects usually disappear within a few days.
The results of your polished new skin are long-lasting depending on the severity of the skin damage you had plus the number of treatments you receive.
To start with, most individuals have two microdermabrasion treatments per month followed by one per month as part of a maintenance plan.
