Over the course of our lives, the structure of our facial skin changes. As time goes by, the first wrinkles form, impurities creep in and scars may be left behind. Many people with small facial imperfections like these find them very troubling – and even cosmetics can’t effectively hide every skin condition and blemish. However, modern aesthetic medicine has developed a variety of highly effective solutions to combat blemished, large-pored skin.
Microdermabrasion allows us to treat a whole range of skin conditions, achieving lasting results while being kind to the skin. Microdermabrasion is a skin-peeling method in which the uppermost layer of skin is carefully removed. In this procedure, we remedy any bumpiness and purposefully stimulate skin regeneration. What’s more, following the treatment the skin is more receptive to active agents and can be intensively nourished with skincare products.
At beauteous, we primarily use microdermabrasion to treat mild cases of hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and various other skin problems. However, this procedure also visibly improves the complexion in general. Microdermabrasion also improves the skin’s uptake of active agents and is an ideal preparation for other treatments aimed at smoothing and improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Frequently asked questions on microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is an evolution of dermabrasion, a surgical procedure originally developed to treat scarring. In this classic procedure, scarred layers of skin are abraded under anaesthetic; however, this takes a considerable toll on the skin and takes a long time to heal. In microdermabrasion, we now have a more sophisticated – and considerably more gentle – procedure at our disposal. As well as improving the appearance of scarring, we can use this method to treat many other skin conditions.
Microdermabrasion involves using a peeling device which uses fine crystals to process the skin and delicately remove the uppermost layer of skin. The process removes dead skin cells as well as any scar tissue on the surface of the skin and other blemishes. The exfoliating device works mechanically to process the skin without using any chemical agents. The peeling treatment does not damage deeper layers of the skin in any way.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle yet effective procedure we use to treat a variety of skin conditions and complaints. Here at beauteous, we deploy this peeling method to treat conditions such as mild hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and cornification. When combined with other treatments, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of stretch marks, facial wrinkles and large pores.
Microdermabrasion contributes to an enhanced overall skin complexion. After treatment, the skin appears more taut and even. At the same time, the therapy stimulates blood flow, collagen production and cell renewal. As a result, microdermabrasion also provides a natural anti-ageing effect.
Before the facial treatment can begin, we start with a personal consultation. Your therapist will analyse the condition of your skin and work with you to establish a treatment plan. Of course, you’ll discuss in detail the risks involved and any possible side effects.
At the start of the treatment, the therapist thoroughly cleanses the skin to be treated. They then select the suitable treatment intensity and configure the vacuum and crystal quantities on the abrasion device accordingly. They guide the abrasion device over the skin in controlled movements in order to loosen the upper layer of skin cells. A vacuum pump then removes the detached skin particles.
After microdermabrasion, the therapist deeply cleanses the skin once again and nourishes it with highly effective care products. The peeling procedure renders the skin more receptive to active agents, allowing us to achieve optimal treatment results. You can support the treatment results yourself in the days after the procedure by following an intensive skincare regime. However, you should avoid any products that irritate the skin, as well as bronzer and essential oils.
The overall length of the treatment, including preparation and aftercare, depends on the complexity and objective in your specific case. After leaving the practice, you can go about your daily life as normal. While you may notice a slight redness to your skin just after the procedure, this can be easily covered with make-up.
Multiple peeling treatments are usually necessary to achieve long-lasting results. The number of sessions required depends on your skin type and the treatment objective. Your therapist will work with you to define the scope of the treatment in a personal consultation.
However, it’s important to keep an interval of several weeks between sessions. This allows the skin to regenerate fully, allowing it to reach the perfect condition for the next treatment session.
After microdermabrasion therapy, the skin will likely be slightly irritated at first and must be protected against direct sunlight. We recommend using skincare products with a high level of UV protection for the duration of the treatment. You should avoid visiting the solarium for several weeks, though you can go swimming and visit the sauna again after 1–2 days.
Specially designed care products support the peeling treatment and imbue the skin with valuable active agents. At beauteous, we give all patients comprehensive advice on their post-microdermabrasion skincare regimen. However, you should avoid any products that irritate the skin, as well as peeling products, bronzer and essential oils.
After microdermabrasion therapy, you’ll notice your skin appears instantly refreshed and more even. Over the days that follow, the full effect of the treatment will become evident. Generally speaking, several sessions are required to achieve the desired result.
Precisely how long the effects last depends on the skin complaints treated. Microdermabrasion allows us to eliminate unevenness in the surface of your skin, with long-lasting results. To achieve an anti-ageing effect that lasts, you should undergo refresher treatments around once per month.
In microdermabrasion, we process the skin mechanically and use no chemical substances in doing so. The treatment is almost pain-free for patients – and there are no serious complications to worry about.
After the treatment, the skin occasionally becomes reddened for a short time and must be protected against direct sunlight. If the skin is exposed to sunlight for any length of time, its pigmentation could be affected.
Microdermabrasion should always be performed by a therapist with corresponding training and experience. If carried out incorrectly, or if the patient neglects their aftercare routine, the risk of complications increases. This can result in inflammations, infections or even scarring.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle peeling procedure in which we work without using any chemical substances. This allows us to refine the skin and its appearance without unwanted side effects. In microdermabrasion therapy, we not only effectively treat complaints on the surface of the skin, but also work to achieve a lasting, even anti-ageing effect. The treatment leaves skin tauter, fresher and visibly rejuvenated.
Depending on the treatment scope, the costs of microdermabrasion are around €80–150.
Here at beauteous, we use microdermabrasion as a gentle way to treat acne scars, large pores and blemishes. The mechanical peeling procedure smooths uneven areas of the complexion while producing a lasting anti-ageing effect. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about microdermabrasion.
