Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that removes the superficial outer layer of dull, dry dead skin cells to reveal fresher, clearer skin. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive and recovery time is minimal.
Here at Sugar Spa we use a professional microdermabrasion machine with a diamond-tipped wand that mechanically abrades the skin. It includes a suction system to increase circulation and oxygen flow as well as vacuum dead skin particles away.
Full Face and Neck (30 min) – $83
Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow, circulation and oxygenation of the skin which allows the cells to function better, providing more nutrients for improved elasticity, clarity and texture.

Best of all you can have it done during your lunch hour and go straight back to work. Your skin will be slightly pink and may look a little shiny. No worries! Although we do recommend waiting a few hours, makeup can be applied immediately after the procedure.
And YES! Microdermabrasion is good for MEN too. Especially those stubborn ingrown beard hairs. There’s nothing sissy about a good skin sanding. What guy doesn’t want smooth, kissable skin?
- Microdermabrasion has been shown to decrease the appearance of fine lines, post acne pigmentation, sun damage and shallow acne scarring.
- Microdermabrasion will help minimize the appearance of enlarged pores and helps unclog them as well.
- Removing dead surface skin cells with microdermabrasion will aid in the penetration of products for more hydrated skin. Fact: Hydrated skin looks and feels better, plus your makeup will glide right on.
Note: Microdermabrasion temporarily makes the skin drier and more sensitive to the sun so a rich moisturizer (M’lis Tissue Repair Cream) and a good SPF (Solar Defender Broad Spectrum SPF 30) should be used on a daily basis for 1 week following your treatments.
A. Microdermabrasion done in a spa is performed by a licensed trained professional using a professional grade machine. A stronger machine provides a deeper more precise exfoliation. While home dermabrasion kits are available, they act more like a scrub and can be either too harsh or basically ineffective.
Products you can purchase for home use are designed to prevent personal injury – i.e. they are only going to give a gentle exfoliation. TIP: if you are not a trained professional you can do some serious damage to your skin. Think back to other things you’ve tried to do to yourself at home.
Q. How often should I receive microdermabrasion?
A. It will depend on your individual skin care needs and goals, but 1-2 weeks apart is typically recommended to see the best results. We recommend a series of 4-6 treatments; then every 1-2 months as maintenance to keep your skin healthy and smooth.
