The main difference between HydraFacial and microdermabrasion is that HydraFacial is a gentler treatment that uses a variety or serums to ride impurities and hydrate the skin, whist being suitable for all skin types, while microdermabrasion is a deeper exfoliating treatment helping to remove the top layer of the skin, revealing glowy skin underneath.
Both treatments address different skin concerns, and depending on what your skin needs, one treatment could be better for your overall skin health than the other.
If you’re unsure which treatment would be best for your skin, feel free to book a consultation with the Eden Skin Clinic team. Our specialists can get up close and personal with your skin to tailor a treatment plan that’s just right for you.
In the meantime, let’s dive into the details of these two treatments to give you an idea of the differences and benefits of these two treatments.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a tried-and-true skincare technique that involves exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin. This process gently exfoliates the skin by passing fine, medical-grade crystals suspended in a highly controlled vacuum. This process can remove 2–5 layers of dead skin,revealing a refreshed and rejuvenated complexion underneath. Additionally, it facilitates lymphatic drainage, which helps to flush out undesirable toxins and increase blood flow, both of which help to reoxygenate and nourish the skin, giving it a healthier appearance.
This treatment is perfect for reducing fine lines, minor scars, wrinkles, and age spots. While microdermabrasion relies on physical exfoliation rather than chemical exfoliation, it’s still gentle enough to be used on the face, neck, chest, back, and hands.
The Perks of Microdermabrasion
Enhanced Skin Texture: Say goodbye to rough spots as microdermabrasion refines the texture of the skin.
Diminished Fine Lines: Watch as those fine lines and wrinkles fade away, leaving behind a youthful glow.
Pore Refinement: Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores for a more flawless appearance.
Medical microdermabrasion requires little recovery time, causes no pain, and is painless. It is a very safe treatment that works well for all skin types.
It is a multipurpose treatment that works for everyone because it can be used to treat dry, patchy skin as well as skin types that are prone to acne, congestion, and oiliness.
Hydrafacial: Get a Dewy Glow
The HydraFacial is a cutting-edge skin treatment that addresses a variety of skin issues by combining cleansing, exfoliation, and customised boosters.
It is preferred by clients and aesthetic professionals due to its customisable approach and suitability for all skin types and tones. This enables our therapists to customise your treatment by using different “booster” serums to give your skin the perfect mix of ingredients.

The handpiece delivers powerful serums to calm and hydrate the skin and superficial but effective peels for extra exfoliation all at once.
