Microdermabrasion, sometimes referred to as the ‘lunchtime peel’, is a non-invasive process able to treat difficult skin conditions, or to rejuvenate and maintain the health of your skin. It leaves skin smoother, brighter and firmer, with immediate results and little or no downtime.
Microdermabrasion in Perth
Perth microdermabrasion uses crystals accelerated onto the skin’s surface to abrade layers of dead and damaged cells. Vacuum suction then whisks away the residual crystals and unwanted abraded skin particles, leaving your skin healthier and younger looking. The treatment is fast and relatively pain-free, leaving little or no redness.
The following skin conditions can be successfully treated with microdermabrasion:
- Ageing and sun-damaged skin
- Acne and acne scarring
- Hard to treat lip and character lines
- Enlarged pores or blackheads
- Unwanted scars or skin blemishes

Perth microdermabrasion treatment at Assure can refine skin pores, renew elasticity and can give the skin a youthful, healthy glow. Skin with acne scars, sun damage and fine lines or wrinkles usually benefits from microdermabrasion.
After a Perth microdermabrasion procedure, skin may feel ‘wind burnt’ for up to 24 hours. Everyone’s skin reacts differently, so we perform the first treatment at a moderate level to gauge the response. From days 2-5, the skin may become tight and dry, and a light peeling effect may occur. From days 5-10, the skin becomes luminous, more hydrated and healthier looking.
Perth microdermabrasion treatment erases epidermal layers at varying depths in a controlled manner, minimising skin trauma. It invigorates cell renewal to create a healthy, balanced skin surface.
Microdermabrasion is hygienic, painless and safe. The abrasion of the skin has a scratchy feeling and, depending on the strength of the treatment, you may experience slight redness and a ‘wind burnt’ feeling for up to 2-24 hours afterwards.
Microdermabrasion increases microcirculation, bringing nutrients to the skin and improving the appearance of imperfections. For the first 5 days after treatment, we ask that you do not use a moisturiser containing oil, as this will affect the exfoliation process. Your dermal therapist will recommend skincare suitable for your skin. A quality sunscreen should be applied every morning to protect the skin.
With deep microdermabrasion, we recommend temporarily refraining from any other invasive or non-invasive procedures. Waxing is not recommended 2 days prior to treatment and for at least 7 days after. The use of sun beds or sunbaking is strongly advised against and swimming in heavily-chlorinated water should be avoided for 2-5 days after treatment. If you use Vitamin A skin products, you may resume using them 10 days post-treatment. If having treatment with wrinkle relaxants, dermal fillers or facial tattooing, you will need to wait at least 21 days after your microdermabrasion.
Your dermal therapist will recommend a treatment program suited to your skin condition and personal goals. Microdermabrasion may be performed weekly to monthly.
