Microdermabrasion – The Most Popular Hollywood Skin Treatment

From Emma Stone and Marion Cotillard to Julianne Moore (all nominees in 2015 Oscar’s Best Actress category), what do all celebrities have in common. Well aside from access to an amazing and luxurious lifestyle. Yes, glowing skin is the right answer. You may be thinking: What makes the skin of all celebs look so flawless? Well, the most common treatment all famous actresses and music icons rave about is microdermabrasion. Luckily, excluding professional makeup artists, personal chefs and fitness trainers, this is one celebrity luxury that you can actually afford.

Microdermabrasion is an effective solution less costly than other more invasive skin care treatments such as plastic surgery and Botox. This is a quick and painless treatment that is commonly used to soften fine lines and wrinkles, reduce superficial hyper-pigmentation or age spots, decreases pores and also help smooth coarsely textured skin. Also, microdermabrasion because it removes dead skin cells from the outer layer allows creams and serums to easily penetrate the skin.


Suitable for all types of skins, microdermabrasion is a light cosmetic procedure that uses tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. It combines a vacuum suction machine which is designed to gently lift up skin during exfoliation and tiny abrasive crystals which exfoliate the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells. The pressure and speed of the vacuum machine is adjusted to match patient’s skin. This depends on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin.

Typically performed in microdermabrasion Melbourne beauty clinics, microdermabrasion is a fairly simple, easy, painless, skin rejuvenation treatment that usually does not required the use of needles or anesthetics. Most people who have tried microdermabrasion, were immediately able to return to their daily activities after schedules session. In addition, makeup and non-irritating creams can also be applied after the treatment.

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular skin care treatment not only among Hollywood celebrities, but among growing number of Australian women as well. It is effective, less costly and less invasive. And when performed by a certified microdermabrasion Melbourne professional, it involves minimal risks. However some patients (depending on skin sensitivity and tolerance) may experience temporary side effects, such as: dry skin, sensitivity to sun, and even a mild bruising in the treated area.

Improvements ca be noticed after just one treatment. Although for a long-lasting result, multiple sessions may be recommended. Most microdermabrasion Melbourne professionals suggest that for desired results, four to eight treatments at two to three-week intervals are necessary.
