Course Overview

Microdermabrasion is a treatment offering a precise, non-invasive means of skin exfoliation that improves the client’s skin texture painlessly, simply and quickly producing immediate results. 

This treatment gives a Therapist an opportunity to build up a return business with clients and a steady income stream from these returning clients as the level of satisfaction for the client rises with the number of treatments, and the period between sessions is 14 days 

By gently removing dead skin cells, which are gently vacuumed away into the crystal cylinders or filters eliminating cross-contamination, a client will see a youthful glow returning to skin previously perhaps dull and tired looking. 

The treatment stimulates cell renewal and the synthesis of Collagen, Elastin and Fibroblast, normally resulting in an immediate, enhanced skin appearance.

The procedure leaves no residue on the skin, and consequently, immediately after treatment, the client can return to their day-to-day activities.

So if you are looking for a painless, simple, easy and quick treatment for your clients then look no further.

With immediate and developing results the Therapist can offer a treatment that improves the skin texture and look at a minimal cost in time and equipment.

A win win for both the Therapist and the client

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a specialist skin treatment and this course will teach you all the essential knowledge to offer the treatment. A specialised applicator is used to gently scrape away the very top layer of skin. It’s widely considered to be safe and suitable for most skin types and skin colours.

Microdermabrasion isn’t invasive, but it does use specialist skills and tools. As such, you want to complete this course and become a qualified professional.

What does microdermabrasion do?

Because microdermabrasion works by effectively removing the top layer of skin, where many skin issues are evidenced, it is mostly used for those who want a treatment for:

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Removing blackheads and swollen pores
  • Tackling acne and any associated scarring
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks
  • Getting rid of uneven skin texture and tone
  • Melasma (patches of discolouration)
  • Dealing with sun damage

Microdermabrasion Benefits

Having understood what microdermabrasion is and what it’s for, it’s good to also understand the benefits. 

After microdermabrasion, your clients skin will feel baby smooth and there should be less variance in pigmentation. Microdermabrasion can also stimulate the production of collagen, aiding elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles.

Mild scarring, such as from acne or stretch marks, should be less obvious. Dead skin cells will be removed and your clients skin will simply feel cleaner than ever. The circulation in your clients skin will be improved, ensuring that all necessary nutrients and oxygen have a clear pathway to rejuvenate the area.

After dermabrasion, your client will discover that their skin is more able to absorb skincare products. For those who are treating skin conditions such as acne, this can be particularly important as their skincare products are effectively more useful. Microdermabrasion can also reduce the size of the pores by unclogging them and improving circulation.

One of the most important microdermabrasion facial benefits is that it is a safe procedure, especially when done by a skilled technician. It’s not as harsh or risky as procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatment, yet you still get the benefit of great results. The recovery time is not very long and usually only takes a few hours.

You may be wondering whether microdermabrasion can reduce acne scars. The answer is that it depends on the nature and depth of the scarring. Shallow depressed acne scars should see an improvement. If the scarring is deeper, sometimes described as an ice pick scar, then the benefit will be minimal. However, because microdermabrasion improves the overall smoothness of your skin, you may find that the appearance of the scars is improved.
