Medical Microdermabrasion treatment in Reading | Hilton Skin Clinics

Medical Microdermabrasion


Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that gives skin a brighter, more youthful appearance, without the need for more invasive treatments like surgery or chemical peels. It can be used alone or in conjunction with a number of skin treatments such as LED phototherapy.

How Does It Work?

Microdermabrasion is the general term that describes the process of buffing away the top layer of skin, also called exfoliation. At Hilton Skin Clinics, we use the Medical Grade Smart Peel Microdermabrasion System for exfoliation treatments. This can be used in combination with red and blue LEDs to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to promote cell growth and cell regeneration. During treatment, the abrasion tool is used to carefully remove the stratum corneum; this is the top layer of skin which is often clogged with dead skin cells, naturally secreted oils and dirt from our environment. This exfoliation action is interpreted by the body as an injury. Because the body believes an injury has occurred, the healing process begins, promoting cell growth and regeneration, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and creating a brighter, more youthful appearance.

In conjunction with the red and blue LEDs, our microdermabrasion treatment can bring about a range of benefits, including:

  • A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.
  • A reduction in pore size, as well as the frequency of spots and breakouts.
  • Improved circulation on the treated area, creating healthier, smoother skin.
  • Improved lymphatic drainage, helping to remove toxins from the skin.
  • Improved collagen production and elastin supply.
  • A reduction in sebum, helping to prevent and reduce oily skin.
  • Toned and tightened facial muscles.
  • Microdermabrasion can also induce a feeling of relaxation, reducing stress levels.
  • The red LED is anti-inflammatory and helps to regenerate cells and promote cell regrowth, while the blue LED is anti-bacterial and helps to calm and soothe problem skin.
  • Improved ingrown hair and razor rash.
  • An improvement in sun damage.
  • An improvement in acne scarring.

During Treatment

During treatment, one of our practitioners will gently pass the Medical Grade Smart Peel Microdermabrasion System over the surface of your skin. Treatment typically consists of 1-3 passes of the tool over skin and can either be used on the whole face or on targeted areas. Because the top layer of skin is removed during treatment, the skin can then absorb nutrients from topical products far more easily and so we may advise patients to use a range of skincare products following treatment in order to promote healing.
