Get smooth, flawless skin with DermaPod Microdermabrasion. The Dermapod is the latest in Microdermabrasion treatment which delivers a progressive, non – invasive treatment that propels natural crystals onto the skin surface for a gentle epidermal abrasion revealing a newer, healthier, younger skin. Micro controlled peeling gently removes epidermal cells to treat a vast range of skin imperfections. it is especially effective for skin ageing. The powerful peeling action triggers the skin’s repair mechanism to produce healthy epidermal tissue growth, improving skin tone and elasticity.
This popular treatment offers a deep exfoliation, gently lifting away dull and dead skin cells, visibly revitalizing your complexion and preparing your skin for further advanced treatments.
At LUSH Skin & Body Clinic we will always start the treatment by completing a skin analysis to make sure that the treatment is right for your skin. Once this has been done, the treatment is customised to your skin condition.
All Dermapod Microdermabrasion treatments begin with double cleansing and natural mineral crystal exfoliation. Following the exfoliation process we will customize corrective serums specific to any existing skin concerns and follow with our hydrating post treatment mask designed to soothe and re- store the skin, enhance the cell renewal process, increase skin hydration and elasticity leaving skin luminous.
The skin instantly appears healthier, brighter and smoother, after just one treatment.

Does it hurt and is it safe?
Microdermabrasion treatment is a virtually painless and completely safe procedure. Our Skin Specialists will customise the treatment to your skin type and because it’s not a harsh or deep process, it requires no downtime. Sessions can be scheduled at any time of the day, allowing you to get back to your normal activities in no time. Treatments are comfortable with a slight tingling sensation, not unlike mild sand paper rubbing against the skin. A slightly sun burnt sensation is experienced for a short time afterwards.
What effects will be visible afterwards?
It is normal for the skin to be slightly red afterwards, which can last up to a few hours. Mild shedding of the skin is common in the first few days of early treatments, but is uncommon once the skin is in better condition. Where acne pustules have been treated, the area may be red and small scabs may form, lasting for several days. It’s essential that you don’t pick any scabs, as this can cause scarring. After a few days, you will see a visible improvement, with dull and stressed looking skin appearing smoother and fresher.
How many treatments do I need?
To obtain the best Microdermabrasion results, it’s necessary to have multiple sessions over a period of time. For general rejuvenation, approximately six sessions are required. For problematic skin, a course of six to twelve sessions is recommended. These are performed every two to three weeks, with each session taking anywhere between twenty to forty minutes depending on the individual and the area being treated.
As the skin is constantly renewing itself, we recommend that most clients return on a regular basis to keep their skin looking its best. Many clients return every one to three months.
Does Microdermabrasion work for all skin types?
Yes, all skin types and colours are suitable for treatment, including both oily and dry skin. Our machine can even be adjusted to cater for sensitive skin. However, there are certain skin conditions and immune system disorders that may make Microdermabrasion unsuitable, so it’s important to discuss your medical history with us in your initial consultation. The treatment is also not recommended for those with exceptionally sensitive skin, or those suffering with rosacea, as this may aggravate the area.
Where can Microdermabrasion be performed?
The treatment can be safely performed anywhere on the body, including the face, arms, chest, hands, neck and back – anywhere that soft, smooth skin is desired.
Can I go back to work after a treatment?
Yes, you certainly can. While some slight redness may be visible afterwards, this will not disrupt daily activities, and there is no downtime required. However, it’s strongly recommended to avoid sun exposure afterwards in order to obtain the best results.
