For a non-invasive, gentle-yet-deep exfoliation, it’s hard to go past microdermabrasion, a speedy service (it clocks in at around 30 minutes) that uses a suction wand to resurface skin and stimulate blood flow. Laser Clinics Australia now offers customised microdermabrasion for five common issues: sensitised, dehydrated, dull, breakout-prone or ageing skin. The therapist performs five steps – cleanse, exfoliate (the microdermabrasion device), correct, hydrate and protect – with products for your specific skin issue. Expect mild discomfort if using one of the acid-based products, plus slight redness (both quickly dissipate), and you’ll need to steer clear of the sun and hold off on any active skincare for a few days. A course of treatments is recommended for maximum results, but even after just one session, there will be a noticeable change.
