Microdermabrasion Treatments With Pro Skin Clinics

Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment designed to deeply exfoliate the skin and restore your natural glow. When you exfoliate yourself (which I hands up do not do regularly enough) you’re only removing a tiny proportion of the dead skin cells where as a microdermabrasion treatment will remove the top layer of your skin so that everything is fresh and you have new skin underneath.

Pro Skin Clinics invited me along to give the treatment a go and after a slight mishap with the location of my treatment, I found myself in a lovely little clinic on Welbeck-street which was about a 5 minute walk from Bond Street station and Oxford Street’s Forever 21 store. After a quick form fill about my skin concerns I was whisked into a small room and talking to the beautician about the treatment.

The treatment is designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which fortunately I do not suffer with, it can help to relieve large pores which is something I do suffer with and it stimulates the collagen production which promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. For me, my biggest concern are the uneven bits of skin tone that I have and some redness on my cheeks which tend to need a lot of toning down when I’m applying my make-up.

After removing my make-up, cleansing and generally wiping my skin clean of everything on there (other than my eye makeup which was preserved) the treatment began.  It’s really hard to explain exactly what the treatment felt like, the only way I can describe it would be like a pumice stone being really lightly pulled over your skin. This is all in a good way as the treatment was incredibly therapeutic and by no means painful or uncomfortable. As you’re removing the top layer of skin off I was warned that my face would be quite red and feel a little warm for up to a day afterwards and by the end of the 15-minute treatment I could feel my face getting quite warm. Some serum and gels were put on my skin after we finished as now the skin is able to absorb them better than they were before with all the dead skin cells on top.

My treatment began at 7pm and I would say my skin only stayed red for the rest of that day, I didn’t notice any redness the next day but everyone is different so some might. When the general redness died down I was impressed to find that the pigmentation on my cheeks was a lot better and the red blotchy spots I get on my cheeks were all but gone which was amazing. When putting on my moisturiser both the evening when I got home and following on my skin seemed to absorb the creams much quicker than normal which I wasn’t expecting.

Due to the lessened red areas I didn’t need to build up my layers of foundation as much on my face and the makeup that I did wear seemed to sit better on my face. Now this could just be a coincidence but who knows. While you can have a single microdermabrasion treatment to keep your natural luminosity of your skin you can have them up to once a week. After my experience I definitely think I’ll be booking in for another treatment next month.

The treatment can help people will all kinds of skin conditions including scars, acne, milia and much more and it’s well worth checking out. You can find out more about the treatment here.

    I’ve never had one but I have been considering going for a treatment

  • Leanne Dolan

    I’ve always been interested in these types of treatments!

  • Charli-Blogs

    I haven’t had a treatment but in the last few months I’ve developed lots of bumps under the skin on my cheeks so have been looking into what can get rid of them! x

  • sarah Lea

    Over the last year or so, I seem to have come out in some bumps and blemishes so I think this treatment would be great for my skin! xx

  • Hungry_Healthy_Happy

    I really need something like this, as my skin is so bumpy and patchy at the moment. But, I really don’t think I am drinking enough water.

  • I have not heard of this treatment before, but I think this is something that would be great for my skin x

  • I did not know about this treatment but it sounds like it’s really effective.

  • Ickle Pickle

    I have never tried this before, but have heard of it. Luckily my skin is ok, but this sounds great for those who might benefit. Kaz x

  • oh never heard of this before but would give it a try for sure

  • I’ve heard of this before – but never had it done myself, might have to give it a whirl. x

  • Beth

    I’ve not heard of this before but it sounds great. Shall have a look into it.

  • I used to use No 7’s at home microdermabrasion face wash a couple of times a week and I have to say I noticed a difference even from that. I genuinely think it works, but if you do it too often you can do more harm than good – which is why I had to stop buying the ‘at home’ version as I became a tad obsessed with it!! x

  • I’ve never tried it, but gosh, based on your results, I need to do that. I’m impressed!

  • This isn’t something I’ve had done but have considered. I don’t get spots but my skin is so dull and dry as s result of ill health and side effects of medication. I try to go for professional facials every couple of months which do work wonders as let’s face it who actually has a home facial that lasts an hour?

    Certainly something I’d like to try.

  • Natasha Mairs

    I have tried the microdermabrasion pads that you can buy, and I must say these are pretty good, so going for a proper treatment must be even better

  • I am actually working with them too just waiting to hear back to see when my appointment is and I am so glad that it works. I have large pores and oily/dry/sensitive skin so my skin is in need of some TLC.

  • By the way I love your new theme the colours are beautiful!

  • wow I had no idea that you could actually do this treatment once a week. I have been wanting something special to my skin and this might just be it. I’ll have to do some research in my city and give it a try.

  • Hannah Malanga

    Oh wow it sounds so good! I have red areas on my cheeks that I hate too. Is this something you have to have done regularly to keep the results?

  • I’m aware of this skincare treatment but didn’t think one could do that often. I thought it was an occasional treatment… Very interesting.

    I have never had a facial or anything professionally … only the occasional mask at home. I definitely need to take better care of my skin though! 30 is right around the corner!

  • I had microdermabrasion years ago and found it very good for my acne skin.

  • Laura

    I love having microdermabrasion as part of a facial, it works so well for me xxx

  • Glad to hear this isn’t a painful treatment as I always thought the ones that leave your face a little red are rather scary!

  • Louise Smith

    I’ve never had any treatment like this before but it’s definitely something I’d consider. I imagined it to be quite painful too, so it’s good to hear that this isn’t the case :)
