Bio brasion might just be the new and improved version of microdermabrasion.
Whilst the treatment is similar to the original procedure, there are some key differences which opens up a whole new world for anti-ageing and corrective measures in skin care.
There are two main differences between bio brasion and microdermasion.
Firstly, bio brasion does away with crystals which microdermabrasion relies on to physically exfoliate. The issue with crystals is that, while they certainly exfoliate well, they can be difficult to control in size which makes them a little unpredictable in application. The amount that comes out of the hose at any given time can vary leading to uneven results.
Bio brasion uses an interchangeable diamond tip instead which can be switched around according to skin type and the area of application. This ensures a more consistent amount of abrasion throughout the treatment.
Furthermore, the level of suction within microdermabrasion can be quite strong; especially for people who suffer from redness, sensitivity and/or weak capillaries. Bio brasion on the other hand, operates with a much lower suction level which means less pulling and tugging on the skin.
It is because of its gentler approach to exfoliation that bio brasion is being used more and more. It is suitable for almost any skin type, including those with rosacea, acne and weak capillaries. Furthermore, professionals are recommending it for any skin tone, including those with darker skin, with minimal risk.

Unlike microdermabrasion, bio brasion is a procedure performed on wet skin. The therapist begins by applying a mild peel which actively loosens any dry or damaged cells on the surface of the skin. Then a customised serum is applied to the skin which aids corrective ingredients to penetrate into the dermal layer where they can work most effectively. Finally, a handheld device is used to buff and physically remove the dry and damaged skin that has been loosened by the peel, resulting in glowing radiant skin with an immediate smoother texture.
For those who are looking for greater results and corrective measures such as the treatment of hyperpigmentation or sun damage, it is best to book a series of 6 – 10 treatments in order to achieve the best results.
There is no downtime with this procedure; it can even be performed as close to four days before a wedding or special event to provide a smooth complexion and clearer skin.
Bio brasion is also highly effective when part of a ‘stacking treatment’. In other words, it can be a fantastic option to combine with other treatments to target a particular issue. Someone who wishes to clear up their acne or fade light brown spots/discoloration might like to combine their bio brasion treatment with a light peel customised to their concerns.
Being suitable to so many more skin types whilst performing equally effective results, bio brasion might just out-shine traditional microdermabrasion in the world of aesthetics.
