“If you feel your skin dull and tired, with spots and discolorations, then it’s time for a deep dermatological facial cleansing, combined with Facial Microdermabrasion, treatments that will rejuvenate your face, leaving it softer and cleaner than ever” explains Dermatologist – Venereologist Dr. Konstantina Mamali. “It is a fairly simple but top non-invasive treatment as it offers immediate and visible results. It is ideal even for the most sensitive and reactive skin types, regardless of gender and age. It removes damaged skin cells and leaves the skin smooth and soft.”
“Essentially, Microdermabrasion safely and controllably removes the surface portion of the skin (keratin layer) that has been damaged, thereby stimulating healing, regeneration and natural skin rejuvenation. At the same time, it leaves no scars or color changes and is a completely safe method” as Dermatologist – Venereologist Dr. Konstantina Mamali emphasizes.
What is it
The face is undoubtedly the most important anatomical unit for female and male beauty. The skin, especially in younger ages, has mechanisms for repairing cell damage and producing skin collagen, leading to healthy and radiant skin.
However, various external factors such as sunlight, diet or age inhibit the normal functions of the skin and lead to dry and aged skin. The art of facial rejuvenation has been practiced since ancient cultures and is of great interest today. There are various methods and treatments that aim to rejuvenate the face and work by removing dead cells and promoting collagenogenesis.
Facial cleansing is one of the most common and basic treatments applied in Aesthetic Medicine and is essential for healthy looking skin. Facial cleansing removes dead cells and sebum from the skin, and combats oiliness and shine. Facial cleansing should not be done only when there is a serious problem in the skin, because then the treatment is not as effective. Every person should incorporate facial cleansing into their daily routine both by simply doing it at home, as well as at specialized dermatologists who offer deep cleansing. Deep cleansing should be done depending on the skin type 2-4 times a year. It is definitely imposed after the summer, when the skin is damaged by the intense sunlight, because sun, oil and dirt clog the pores, while many sunscreens aggravate the situation. Thus, in early autumn the skin becomes dehydrated and pimples and blackheads become more pronounced.
Deep yet gentle dermatological cleansing is achieved using the latest generation Smart Peel system. The Diamond head equipped with it, shoots out thousands of micro-crystals which deeply cleanse the skin removing dead cells and blackheads and reducing open pores. On contact with the skin, the microcrystals remove keratinized cells, dirt and sebum, leaving the skin clean. With the Facial Microdermabrasion method, specialized skin cells called fibroblasts are mobilized and produce new collagen and elastin, ingredients essential for skin youthfulness. Dermabrasion treatment has two parts: the part of exfoliation with a special material (microcrystals or diamond flakes) and the part of suction of dead skin cells.
At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, as a specialized Dermatology and Plastic Surgery clinic, the Facial Microdermabrasion treatment is applied with the power of Microcrystals (microdermabrasion) or Diamond, depending on your skin’s needs, restoring its natural balance and leaving it softer than ever. Facial Microdermabrasion is a simple and quick facial treatment that has immediate and visible results.
Areas of Application
The most common areas where Facial Cleansing and Microdermabrasion Scrub is applied are:
- Fine Lines, Wrinkles & Spots
- Acne Scars
Facial Microdermabrasion treatment primarily fights “time marks” and scars caused by photo-aging. It also fights fine lines and wrinkles.
For this reason, it is indicated for older people, where the signs of time are indelible. This does not mean that it cannot be applied to young skin for deep cleansing, facial exfoliation and treatment of acne scars. It is also particularly effective in cases of cystic acne.
The results of the treatment are immediately visible from the very first session, with your skin looking brighter and smoother. It is recommended to be done 3-4 times a year.
With the Facial Cleansing and Microdermabrasion, a total skin regeneration and rejuvenation is achieved in depth, while carrying out:

Smart Peel® Technology

- Thermal irritation of the fibroblasts
- Powerful mechanical irritation
- Induction of hyperemia

What are the results of Facial Cleansing?
The results of the treatment are immediately visible from the very first session, with your skin looking brighter and smoother. Unnecessary blackheads, as well as white closed freckles, disappear and the skin is cleared of impurities, giving you a rested and youthful look. After the treatment, it is very important to properly hydrate your face to avoid the appearance of dry skin.
If Facial Dermabrasion is done for the purpose of cleansing, it is advisable to repeat it 3-4 times a year. If we wish to reduce the appearance of freckles, acne scars, wrinkles and skin tightening, a cycle of 4-6 sessions with an interval of 10-14 days is required.
Unfortunately, the results of the treatment cannot stay forever, as our skin is constantly changing and subject to external factors. For this reason, repeatability of the treatment is recommended.
Is Facial Dermabrasion a painful method?
Facial Microdermabrasion is a relatively painless method and can be applied to any skin type. The treatment is applied to the superficial layers of the skin, so there is no need to apply anesthetic cream. It does not leave scars or marks, and any redness subsides after a few hours. It is a completely safe method and has no risks or side effects.
To whom can Facial Microdermabrasion be applied?
Microdermabrasion is effective on any skin type, regardless of gender and age. However, special attention should be paid to people who frequently experience allergic rashes or skin in which photosensitivity or dermographism is present. Microdermabrasion should not be applied to persons suffering from skin diseases or active herpetic infection. Particular attention shall be paid to skin type and colour.
Individuals opting for Facial Microdermabrasion treatment should keep in mind that it is a non-invasive method and therefore sessions are required in order to achieve full results that will last over time.
