Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, skin rejuvenation procedure that works to gently remove the layer of dead skin cells from the outermost layer of your skin (epidermis). Often used to treat a number of skin conditions and complaints, one advantage of microdermabrasion is its anti-ageing effect. By removing dead skin cells, treated areas show visible improvements in the tone, texture and colour of your skin – giving you a smoother, glowing and more youthful appearance.
At Verve Cosmetic Clinic, we use the DermaSweep MD system for microdermabrasion. This innovative system is only made available to licensed medical practitioners, and combines a precision brush tip exfoliation, topical solutions and adjustable vacuum pressure to give the most precise, effective and comfortable skin treatment available. By utilising bristles that “sweep away” the layer of dead skin in a precise and controlled manner, the mess and risks associated with traditional crystal systems are also eliminated.
With three levels of skin resurfacing, DermaSweep offers options customised to a patients skin type, desired level of exfoliation and results.

As the procedure uses tiny bristles to gently exfoliate the skin, microdermabrasion should not be painful or uncomfortable. Microdermabrasion however does cause a mild warming or tingling sensation that most patients describe in positive terms.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure with minimal risks, and one of the important benefits of microdermabrasion is its safety. When performed by experienced staff, microdermabrasion can significantly enhance the appearance of your skin without damaging the deeper layers of it.
Although microdermabrasion is a safe procedure, it is not the best option for everyone as certain skin types and conditions can be negatively affected by the treatment. Those with severe rosacea, cystic acne, eczema, or dermatitis are not good candidates. For those who cannot undergo microdermabrasion, Dr Nasser will do an assessment and offer other alternative treatments that won’t damage the skin.
Sessions usually last between 40 to 60 minutes, and does not stop you from going about your daily activities right after. Patients will see improvements in their complexion after the first treatment, but attaining lasting results can only be achieved through a number of sessions performed over several weeks.
Results of microdermabrasion can be seen almost immediately. With just one session, you will see an improvement in your skins colour, tone and health – giving your face a fresh and youthful appearance. Note that the microdermabrasion procedure is most effective when a patient receives multiple treatments at intervals of two to three weeks.
