Microdermabrasion Sydney

Choosing the Right Sydney Clinic For Microdermabrasion Treatment

 Choosing the right clinic for microdermabrasion treatment can be tricky. However, there are ways that you can ensure that you are finding the clinic that is right for you and your needs. You will need to be prepared to do your research to find a clinic that is safe, and meets the guidelines that should be followed by every clinic. Do note that not all microdermabrasion Sydney clinics are created equally.  Some cut corners to save the clinic itself some money, but cutting corners is not something that should be tolerated when looking for a clinic that treats the skin, the largest organ of the body.

Visit the Clinic

Here are some things that you will want to do before deciding which microdermabrasion Sydney clinic is the right clinic for you:

  • Does the clinic have a positive feeling to it? When you call, is the receptionist polite? Does she seem to know what she is talking about?
  • Does the clinic offer consultations? Can you speak with the derma specialist that will be performing your microdermabrasion so you can get a feel for how he or she runs their practice and get the answers to any questions you may have?
  • Do they have any testimonials from other clients they can share with you? Do they have references?
  • Visit the clinic to get a first impression. Is it clean? Do you feel comfortable there?
  • Does the clinic offer financing? Many times financing will often be needed for expensive procedures, or treatments that need multiple rounds.

By performing the above tasks, you can often get a feel for the clinic to give you a good first impression. If for any reason at all, a clinic gives you a bad feeling or something just does not feel right to you, you might want to decide to look for another microdermabrasion Sydney clinic.

Questions to ask

When calling a clinic, see if you can set up a consultation first to meet with the skin professionals that will be performing the microdermabrasion treatment. Many clinics will offer this. At this consultation, be very forward and ask questions. Possible questions to ask are:

  • How long have you been practicing?
  • What is your medical background in? Are you certified to perform microdermabrasion?
  • How many microdermabrasion treatments has he or she performed in the past? Has he or she done any similar treatments?
  • Are the clinicians certified skin professionals? Be careful with this one. Many times a clinic might say that they are certified, but are truly not. Look for documentation of this hanging up in the office. Someone that was truly certified would want to show that off!
  • Does he or she have any before and after photos they can share with you?
  • Does he or she charge for follow up consultations?
  • Do you allow anyone to help in the process? If so who, and what sort of background do they have? Are they also certified or what training do they have?

Research the clinics you have picked before you choose one. Ask friends, family and neighbors if they could recommend anyone. Look at reviews online of clinics that you might be interested in. Chances are if the reviews are good, you will more than likely have a great experience with them. However, this does not ensure that the clinic is right for you. Do the research and then call the clinic and ask questions. Always go with your gut feeling on this. Your skin is important, and you should not trust it to just anyone.

    The dermatologist that I go to is super. I chose mine because my best friend went there. She always had various procedures done, including microdermabrasion. I decided to tag along with her on one procedure just to get a feel for what the office and procedure were like. The office was exceptional and the staffing there was grand. The three dermatologist they have are all board certified, and they do not allow anyone to help unless they have had extensive training, which is a huge relief to me, because I have heard some horror stories. The clinic met all my expectations, and I would rate them as an A. If you are having a hard time with finding a clinic, do the rating scale. If they get an A then you know that you will feel safe with them doing work on your face or other parts of the body.

    My sister went to a clinic that looked very run down. If I would have been her, I would have felt uncomfortable there and would not have wanted the procedure done. But she felt that what she got was worth it. The building she said was run down but the doctors were great and knew what they were doing. But my question was, how come they could not afford to have a nicer place? She had this done a year ago and all went well. Her microdermabrasion really left her skin nice and smooth and she has not had any issues with it. It would not have been a clinic that I would have picked, as I am a firm believer in first impressions. But she did her research first she said. They did offer a free consult at first and the receptionist was very nice, and knowledable. Plus they were willing to work a payment plan out with her. I guess that the looks of the building should not bother us, but it still would have bothered me, even though everything else was right on target. You know what they say…don’t judge a book by it’s cover. I guess this was correct in this case.

    I made sure that my dermatologist was certified before I allowed him to touch my face. I have had so many issues with my skin, from acne to oily skin that I was not going to let just anyone touch my face and start doing microdermabrasion treatments or other procedures. I wanted to be certain that they knew what they were doing and were skilled enough to give me results so I was not wasting my time or money. Do your research and you will find the right clinic for microdermabrasion treatments or any other treatments you are considering having done.

    These are some great tips the use when choosing the right clinic for microdermabrasion treatment. When I was looking for a dermatologist after I moved, I asked my female coworkers who they had gone to. And surprisingly, out of the dozen or so that I asked, five of them raved about the same one. So that made it very easy for me to choose who I wanted to go to. I figured with five woman gushing about this doctor, he had to be good, right? I even looked up online what others were saying about this dermatologist and his clinic. He got rave reviews by all, so I assumed that I was safe. But even so, I still did the consultation and asked a bunch of questions. I mean it is my skin we are talking about here, something that I have to look at daily and so do others in my life. So I was not going to take any chances at all! I really think that when you ask around and do your research, you will have no issues finding the right clinic for microdermabrasion treatments or any other procedure.

    I love, love everything about the microdermabrasion treatment. It’s so affordable and yet gives great results and makes your skin look absolutely fabulous. I was running around looking for chemical peels of all sorts, burning my skin to death, when I found out about microdermabrasion, which changed my life. My skin is now very different, and I was convinced it wouldn’t be different my whole lifetime. The diamond microdermabrasion machine is the best thing they have every invented. Get it, because it’s awesome, you will see the glow girls!

    Years ago, I had a microdermabrasion treatment done in a clinic, but I believe it was some kind of a fraud because it’s not what it says here. Crystal microdermabrasion is lovely, as I’ve seen for myself because I gave it a shot like two months ago, and I’ve seen improvements! I don’t know how and why I dared to do it again after a horrible experience I had with burnt skin and all of that, but I did and now I am so happy. I had dry and oily skin, and you can imagine the horror of having combo skin. Now after only 4 treatments I can see my skin evening out and there is no excessive oil on my face or excessive dehydration of my skin. Really unbelievable!

    So, I’m 21 years old, and suffer from really dry skin and cracked skin as well. No matter what I try it might seem to work for other people, but it never worked for me. Make up doesn’t help, creams don’t either. I was in a skin rut, until my friend who works in a dermatologist’s office convinced me to come for a consultation. The first thing I asked is, is microdermabrasion safe, will it work? It was a funny situation, because I was really sceptical, for the first two times.. I was like yeah, yeah, nothings happening. But I’ve been going regularly for 8 weeks, and oh boy does it work! All I can say is that the situation of my skin before and after microdermabrasion is a completely different story. I don’t look like my old self and I am loving it. I’ve noticed that my face started glowing, like I had naturally beautiful skin, and that has never happened! I wanted to share my experience with you, since I know that it can vary from person to person, so for all of you who have dry skin and doubts about the microdermabrasion, don’t doubt, just go do it. I love it, it’s really awesome!

    Hello ladies and gentlemen. I really recommend the microdermabrasion. If you are suffering from acne scars like me, or oily skin like me as well, it’s the best thing that you could opt for. I haven’t noticed any microdermabrasion side effects, it was a relaxing experience for me. No, it doesn’t hurt that much, it’s not what some people are saying it is. I am overjoyed with results, and how it made my skin look better in only a month. The scars are not that prominent now, although I do still see them, they haven’t completely faded away. I believe that I should only give it time so that the treatment could live up to the potential.

    Answer please! says:

    How much does microdermabrasion cost? Do you schedule several treatments right away or? I’m a total noob when it comes to this stuff. I am 22, so I hope you excuse my ignorance. I’ve seen different microdermabrasion prices when I researched online, and since I’ve been saving up my own money to do it, I want to find the best deal there is out there. Can anyone tell me what I should be on the look out for?

    Hello people! I read somewhere that you can get your personal microdermabrasion machine to use at home. Now, I don’t know if you have to have some proper training done or not, or if it comes with instructions, but I wouldn’t dare to touch it without having heard some previous experiences! If you’re actually doing it on your own, how often should you have microdermabrasion a month? And after microdermabrasion, can you function normally? Tell me more about this home treatment options, please!

    Yes it’s a great treatment, but if I were you I wouldn’t tamper a lot around that DIY microdermabrasion machine. It sounds funny, and probably doctors wouldn’t be doing it in offices if it was something that you can easily just play around with in your home. Don’t you think it’s not worth the risk? These home microdermabrasion kits seems like some cheap at home chemical peel to me. But I don’t know, I guess some of you must not care a whole lot about your skin!

    Went for my first treatment today. Totally not feeling any kind of discomfort or pain. I had my first facial session and I really feel great about it. My doctor was really great, he said that he had microdermabrasion training, so I wasn’t at all afraid of letting my skin go through his hands. He also had top-notch microdermabrasion equipment, all shiny and new. So far, I am loving it, I’ll be posting later in the month to tell you more details and update you on the progress!

    I know that these articles claim not to have any side effects or problems, but I wanted to ask… Does microdermabrasion hurt? I had a chemical peel when I was 18, and I went out of there screaming and crying for three days nonstop. It hurt like hell. Do these microdermabrasion crystals burn the skin and destroy the dead cells in such a way? I am scared even to consider it, even if it’s a little bit of pain in question. I am terrified after that chemical peel, I can’t imagine sitting in that chair and getting a treatment and feeling the pain again. Although I would like to do something good for my skin, I am so afraid! Any advice guys? Help this coward 
