What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a form of advanced exfoliation designed to remove dead skin cells, stimulate new cellular growth, and give the skin a fresh, smooth, luminous appearance. The treatment softens fine lines and wrinkles, decreases the appearance of age spots, hyperpigmentation, and scarring, as well as boosts collagen production, and leaves the skin supple and radiant.
Who is it appropriate for?
Microdermabrasion is highly effective in treating aging skin, skin texture, scars, acne scars, dull and lifeless skin, age spots, and some pigmentation issues. It is appropriate for all skin types. Our Dermatologist can advise if you would benefit from these treatments.
Benefits from microdermabrasion treatments?
- Excellent skin health result
- Really good price and performance: modest cost and similar skin health benefit compared to other cosmetic treatments such as micro-needling or laser treatments.
- No downtime: your skin recovers quickly from these procedures
- Very low risk of negative skin reaction from treatments
Types of microdermabrasion treatments: Crystal and Diamond
Crystal microdermabrasion: first became a popular exfoliation and skin renewal treatment in the United States in the 1990s, generally providing smooth and glowing skin. Crystal microdermabrasion involves a special hand-held device that simultaneously blasts aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin and vacuums up dirt, dead skin cells, and the used crystals. The abrasive nature of the crystals was initially considered to be excellent for deep exfoliation and for stripping the top layer of skin (an ablative procedure). However, due to the irregular shape of the crystals, for some clients, the process was too abrasive and left the skin inflamed. For patients with skin conditions that are triggered by inflammation, like rosacea or sensitive skin, using crystal microdermabrasion worsened the skin condition and appearance. Because treatment for crystal microdermabrasion is highly dependent on the machine (proper force of crystal flow and suction), it is a less reliable form of microdermabrasion. Another downside to this treatment is that crystal particles may be left on the skin (it is hard to completely remove them all) and it is difficult to treat areas around the eyes, mouth, and nostrils because it is not possible to precisely aim the device.
Diamond microdermabrasion: a newer, more advanced, and “preferred” type of microdermabrasion has gained in popularity and has replaced crystal dermabrasion as the treatment process of choice in the United States. This process involves the use of a diamond-tipped wand that is used to slough away the top level of the skin (an abrasive procedure), while the wand’s vacuum sucks up dirt and dead skin cells. No excess particles are left on the skin. Due to the precise nature of the diamond-tipped wand, especially in comparison with the crystal machine, this procedure more accurately exfoliates areas closer to the eyes and mouth (with no risk of stray particles getting in your eye or being ingested through your nose or mouth). Rather than placing the results in the hands of a machine, diamond microdermabrasion relies on the skill of the Nurse technician applying manual pressure, which gives much more direct control over the entire process, safer results and minimizes any potential for skin irritation after treatment.
The difference between the two treatments can easily be understood by comparing them to machine “sandblasting,” which is the crystal method, and gentle hand-applied “sandpapering,” which is the diamond method. While the crystal treatment was the original microdermabrasion treatment, it has been phased out and replaced by the newer system of diamond-tipped wand microdermabrasion. They have been shown to be safer and more precise and are a great option for clients with a variety of skin conditions.

0-09-2019 "I would love to thank Dr. Hun Kim Thao and her amazing staffs for helping me through a skin improving journey over an almost year while I was staying in HCM. I received acne facial and peel every other week and the service was superb! Each procedure was well explained and Dr.Thao was very attentive. I loved her holistic way of approach to improve patient's skin. Not only she prescribed very effective acne gel but also shared great tips such as reducing the amount of simple carb intake, cutting down sugar, and most importantly highlighting the importance of getting enough sleep. She even recommended a well known doctor in town who could help me with my sleeping problem. In addition, the price was very reasonable and I was very happy with all the service I got from Grace Skin Clinic. Oh Dr. Thao even asked her staff to make me a cup of tea one day as she she thought I looked overly exhausted. I was very moved. How warm hearted she is! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to check up their skin and improve their skin. Amazing place!"

This place is amazing; they help me improve my terrible skin condition which had affected my identity, and my confidence for many years. I have been visiting Grace Clinic during summer time for the past two years, and every time I am here, they create a different program in order to fit my skin condition and my limited time. Furthermore, people from Grace Clinic always greet me with warm hearts. They once invited me to have boba tea with them which made me no longer feel like a customer but a friend which it has created a friendship overtime. I cannot stress how highly I would recommend this place. Again, they are amazing and very professional. There is one thing, you can do walk-in just fine but it would be better if you schedule the appointment so they can prepare and create the best service for you.

I absolutely love the ladies of Grace Skincare. I was staying in Saigon for 6 months and came here with acne and a congested skin from my travels. So happy I found them! Their prices are reasonable compared to other “expat” clinic that I went to. I bought the 10 facial package for a really good price and am really happy with the result of my skin after following all of their consultations. Acne has cleared up and now we’re focusing on my other skin concerns such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this clinic. They truly want you to walk out with skin you feel confident in. I’m going to miss this place and the ladies I got to connect with during my time here.

Deanna Hong – HCMC, Yoga Instructor
Hey guys it’s been 3 weeks since we came for our treatment. I can honestly say it’s the best I have had done. Andrew and I look fresh without being overdone. We both had people say how refreshed we look after our holiday. Honestly they wouldn’t be saying that if they knew how much beer and yummy Vietnamese food we consumed when we were there. I can honestly say Andrew and I will be back. And I am telling all my friends how fantastic you guys are and how professional the consultation was. I have yet to find someone in Australia who is so thorough. Thank you, Kylie

The owners are wonderful people. I had a good experience and can sincerely and highly recommend everything about Grace Skincare Clinic!
Sandra Menhart – New York, NY, Visiting Profesor
I was so embarrassed with the scars and pigmentation marks on my face. These are from old sports injuries and harsh products on my legs from childhood accidents. I am fed up with using so much concealer makeup on my face and am never able to wear a skirt with confidence. I heard about the Grace Skincare Clinic pigmentation lightening treatment from a friend. I took 6 treatments & used skincare product as Dr. Thao instructed and now my skin is beautiful and permanently clear. It was worth every penny.
as Tet is coming, I highly recommend this place for a weekend retreat, skin detoxing or even an urgent package to soothe and smooth your skin. I got back my healthy skin after just 02 week following the instruction of Dr Thao Hun and it cost me 200,000 for medical consultation fee only. Wonderful!
