What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that removes the top layer of skin cells to reveal healthier, deeper layers. It operates on two levels: vacuum suction, which draws the skin into contact, and a gentle ‘abrasive’ component.

  • The suction helps clear congestion and unclog pores, making it ideal for treating pimples, acne, and hormonal breakouts.
  • Gentle exfoliation of the skin’s outer layer improves the glow of your skin by revealing healthier layers of skin.

What Is Involved in a Microdermabrasion Facial?

A microdermabrasion facial is entirely painless. You may experience light scratching or gentle pulling. Our therapist will begin with low settings for your first micro.

  • Double cleansing is the first step in a microdermabrasion facial.
  • We tailor the micro to your specific skin issues.
  • Micros may cause mild redness in the skin for up to 24 hours.
  • Extraction facials are more effective for blackheads and whiteheads.

Our clinic is Chermside based, where we have provided North Brisbane with quality cosmetic services for over 15 years. We are a sustainable salon; we accept Zippay and Afterpay. We are a small business (not a chain) with Doctor only injectors and qualified therapists. We provide a free assessment consultation and skin scan for all new clients.

Microdermabrasion Facial at Pearl Chermside

We frequently combine a microdermabrasion facial with a chemical peel to get more advanced exfoliating treatments. The combination of superficial peels delivers a more refined therapy.

What Is the Purpose of Microdermabrasion?

Micros exfoliate dry or rough outer layers of skin by sloughing surface skin cells. Exfoliation is essential for healthy skin. It is a versatile treatment that targets the face, neck, and décolletage. Exfoliate more effectively by combining Microderm with peels and extractions.

Microdermabrasion Results?

Do micros work? Yes, as long as you are the appropriate candidate. Microdermabrasion facials are fantastic for settling acne and minor skin imperfections.

    • Improve skin tone
    • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
    • Lift dull skin tone,
    • reduce open or enlarged pores, and aid in the removal of blackheads

Conversely, a microderm will not treat acne scars, sagging skin, existing wrinkles, or correct facial creases or folds. On the other hand, our team addresses these with resurfacing, skin tightening, dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, and other treatments.

Microdermabrasion for Acne Treatment

A microdermabrasion facial can aid in the resolution of acne for clear skin and a bright complexion—the microderm results in a deep cleansing to remove pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. The removed layer of skin contains dead skin cells, which contribute to pore obstruction and acne. However, the skin’s surface is unaffected.

How Does Acne Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion for acne is solely concerned with the physical removal of pore obstruction. Furthermore, combining micros with other modalities enhances the benefits. As a result, we frequently combine micros with extractions, chemical peels, and skincare. Moreover, we provide a variety of acne treatments, such as Kleresca acne treatment, to treat moderate to severe cystic acne.

Acne Treatment with Microdermabrasion

A series of microdermabrasion facial treatments spaced one to four weeks apart, is required. (This varies depending on the severity of the acne.) After each session, you will notice a gradual clearing of obstructions and settling of acne.

Micros are excellent for removing clogged or congested pores and removing hormonal breakouts, pimples, and acne for clean and clear skin. We recommend trying this more natural approach to acne treatment before resorting to medical treatments. For a more advanced exfoliation, we combine our micro with peels.

Acne Scar Microdermabrasion

Micros can only help with acne scarring if they are used to prevent it! Microdermabrasion is not an effective acne scar treatment. It can help to polish the surface appearance, but it cannot penetrate the dermis and initiate repair. Acne scars are treated with a variety of advanced medical treatments. Rf resurfacing, laser scar treatment, PRP therapy, skin needling, or subcision are all options. Our cosmetic doctors can also improve acne scarring cosmetically with dermal filler.

Microdermabrasion Alternatives

Tixel facials, fractional CO2 laser treatments and radiofrequency provide superior results for skin textural concerns. However, the results are incomparable because laser and radiofrequency can penetrate the dermal layer.

    • RF radiofrequency improves the texture and appearance of sun damage more quickly. In most cases, four – six treatments are required.
    • Chemical peels such as Vitamin A peels or Jessner peels are better suited to addressing pigmentation and skin texture issues caused by sun damage. This peel takes 15 minutes and usually results in full-face flaking within a week. Typically, three are required.
    • Skin needling and fractional laser are more effective at improving skin texture, tone, and quality. These require more downtime and are expensive, but they produce better results with fewer treatments.
    • Combinations of microdermabrasion and glycolic peels allow for deeper peel penetration.
    • Laser, BBL, laser, or chemical peels are more effective at treating pigmentation.


Microdermabrasion exfoliates the surface layer of dry skin, allowing active ingredients to penetrate and hydrate for that beautiful skin feel. So, after cleansing and microdermabrasion, the tailoring process begins.

We can tailor to help you achieve your skin goals, whether you have blemishes, unwanted brown spots, dry skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, or wrinkles; we offer a complimentary consultation with our skin therapists, and they will advise which microderm facial is best for you.


Microdermabrasion requires no preparation. Unlike our laser treatments and peels, which require skin preparation, you can begin immediately, making it the ideal starting point for any skin journey.


Microdermabrasion is completely safe.

A temporary redness fades after a few hours or overnight.

Mild flaking may occur after a few days, depending on the treatment used.

This can be hidden with an Oxygenetix makeup base, which is the ideal aftercare for any treatment.

Wear SPF 50+ after your microdermabrasion.

We carry a variety of skincare lines as well as prescription and compounded creams.

TBH, Proparia, and Dermaenergy are among the skincare products we offer.

We begin all of our skin consultations and skin scanner to determine your exact skin type and ethically recommend skincare.


We recommend 4 – 6 treatments spaced fortnightly to monthly for optimum results with Microdermabrasion, depending on your skin goals. The boutique microderms can be combined with any of our cosmetic skin treatments, and if you purchase four of them in a package, you will receive a 40% discount.
