Microdermabrasion in Bangkok

The Ultimate Guide to Microdermabrasion in Bangkok

Last fact-checked: 13 December 2019

Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation technique that effectively improves the look of the skin by exfoliating the outer layer. The result? A brighter, healthier and more younger-looking you.

It works for all skin types on fine lines, acne scars, blocked pores and sun damage to create a healthy glow and clear skin.

Am I Suitable for Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a softer form of dermabrasion, with less downtime afterward. Unlike dermabrasion, which is not recommended for dark skin as it can lead to scarring, microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types.

This painless skin-treatment that can help with blemishes, sunspots and fine lines, as well as improving skin texture for a youthful, healthy glow.

If you have skin lesions, open sores or other medical conditions, such as a herpes breakout, you may have to wait until these have cleared up or been treated before microdermabrasion can be carried out. If this concerns you, we recommend consulting with a doctor or dermatologist back home before you book any treatment abroad. 

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion works by spraying tiny exfoliating crystals onto the skin that remove dead skin cells; in turn, this stimulates the growth of collagen – the protein that is the building block of healthy skin, bones, muscles and other tissues.

It is sometimes combined with a light chemical peel (also available in Thailand) for a greater effect.

What Is the Procedure for Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is performed using either of these two methods:

  • Diamond-Tip Microdermabrasion:
    A diamond-tipped handpiece is used to gently exfoliate dead skin cells which are then sucked up, like a vacuum. This type of microdermabrasion is safer to use than crystal microdermabrasion when treating the area around the eyes.

  • Crystal Microdermabrasion:
    Small crystals are blasted onto the surface of the skin; this gently polishes the dead skin cells off, which are then sucked up using a specialist tool. 

What Is the Recovery Time for Microdermabrasion?

The recovery time for microdermabrasion is fairly minimal, and this is actually one of the major plus points of the procedure. Apart from slight swelling and redness, you will be able to undertake your normal activities straight after the procedure, although don't head straight for the beach to top up your tan as your skin will be particularly sensitive to sunlight. Use a high SPF moisturizer to prevent damage to your new skin.

Why Should I Choose Bangkok for Microdermabrasion Treatment?

Bangkok has a wealth of high-quality clinics offering microdermabrasion treatments, and if you are on a business trip or holiday, it is one of the less invasive procedures you can have for rejuvenating the texture of your skin. The downtime is minimal too, which is something to be considered if you want to spend time in the city... or venturing further afield to the southern islands or culturally-rich north.

You are probably aware that Bangkok is not only one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, but also a prime destination for all sorts of surgical, cosmetic, health and beauty treatments. Facilities offer treatments that cost considerably less to international visitors than the prices they’d pay at home, while customer care and patient satisfaction rank particularly high here, too. 

The Benefits of Using Medical Departures

As with any cosmetic procedure, we do suggest that you perform a little research yourself. Find out what you can about microdermabrasion to see if it is something that will give you the results you desire. Part of the process of receiving good treatment is to have realistic expectations and to know what questions to ask of your practitioner.

This is why it is important to check out any prospective clinics. Thankfully, Medical Departures has already most of this work for you, conducting background checks on all of the clinics and hospitals listed on our site. We pay onsite visits and verify credentials, including qualifications, international affiliations and professional memberships, as well as collating real patient reviews. 

You can check out all this information on our individual listings for free, with high-definition photos and virtual tours letting you see for yourself what the premises look like. Taken together, this information can help you make an informed choice with the peace of mind that you have found out as much as you can before you book.

Remember: no medical, cosmetic or surgical procedures can ever be guaranteed completely – we’re all individuals whose bodies react differently, and the people administering treatments are only human – so some may be better than others. Minimize the risk factor of having treatment abroad by booking through a trusted third party site.

How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost in Bangkok Compared to Australia and New Zealand?

The cost of microdermabrasion in Bangkok is around half the price it is in Australia, for example. One session costs as little as AUD 50 (THB 1,000) at our partner clinics in Bangkok. 

These savings won't merit flying all the way to Thailand just for this treatment alone, but it's definitely worth considering if you're already planning a trip, or going for another surgical procedure.
