Microdermabrasion is a safe, effective and quick form of mechanical exfoliation. At SKN we use a diamond tip microdermabrasion machine to exfoliate away the outermost layers of the epidermis, while stimulating collagen formation in the deeper layers of the skin.
Microdermabrasion has been clinically proven to benefit:
- Congested skin (especially blackheads)
- Sun damaged skin
- Superficial hyperpigmentation
- Fine lines
- Oily, dry or patchy skin
- Dull or aging skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Pigmented acne scars
While this treatment is beneficial on its own, it’s especially effective when combined with other treatments such as a Medi-Facial, Peel, or Cosmetic Acupuncture. Check out the combination pricing below.
Frequently Asked Questions
+ Will there be any downtime?
One of the advantages of Microdermabrasion is that it has no downtime. You can return to your normal routine and apply makeup if needed directly after treatment. However we recommend avoiding the application of makeup until the next day if possible.
+ Who is a good candidate for microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is recommended for healthy intact skin that needs a good exfoliation. Microdermabrasion works well for sun damaged skin, aging skin, dull skin. It is a great monthly treatment to maintain healthy, well exfoliated and nourished skin.
+ Who is not a candidate for microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for people who have undiagnosed raised lesions on the skin, active acneic breaks, active keloids, a recent herpes outbreak, skin cancer, sunburn, or rosacea, eczema, an auto-immune system disorder, or unstable diabetes. Pregnant women should not undergo microdermabrasion.
+ Will microdermabrasion help with acne scars?
Microdermabrasion can help lighten pigmented acne scars when combined with a light peel or medi-facial. Microdermabrasion is not effective in the treatment of indented acne scars. Dermapen is the best treatment option for indented acne scarring.

"I love the results. Always get compliments on my healthy glowing skin! Also love the experience always leave relaxed. "
"Your staff are extremely friendly, personable and knowledgeable. They take the time to properly evaluate your skin and treat accordingly. Never have any team members pushed products or sales on me."
"I really enjoyed my visit to SKN. The team was very friendly and professional, they spent enough time with me beforehand to make sure I feel comfortable with the treatment (I went there to get my first-ever acupuncture and second-ever microderm).
I'm very happy with the microderm results. My skin is noticeably brighter and shinier, all the dead skin is removed and the tiny smile lines I had developed have disappeared. I definitely recommend this place, they're clearly experts in skin rejuvenation, the prices are reasonable, they're clear about what they can and can't do with their treatments, and you know you'll get the results you're promised (and more).
I also had acupuncture which was very soothing and relaxing. This was my first time getting any sort of acupuncture treatment so I don't have a baseline to compare it with, but I can say it did make a difference in my overall well-being. I slept very well at night and all the tension I was experiencing in my legs for a while (perhaps due to walking in heels or standing for long) was gone.
I'll definitely go back!"
