Shweta Sarawgi share her experience and give some information about the Skin Polishing process.
Skin Polishing or Microdermabrasion is the technique that involves using exfoliating aluminium oxide crystals on required area along with suction which removes outer dead layer of skin leaving fresh and glowing skin underneath.
Almost any area of body can be treated which includes face , neck, back, arms … full body polishing.
I went through one session of Skin Polishing at AK Clinics, New Delhi. I will here share my experience and give some information about the process.

The Process of Skin Polishing:
The process of skin polishing involves Cleansing, Microderamabrasion and Calming. The cleansing process is as name suggests is cleaning the skin with a mild cleanser to remove any dust or debris from the skin and prping the skin for the process of exfoliation.
Microdermabrasion is done through a special equipment where tiny crystals of Aluminium Oxide are rubbed against the skin using a suction nozzle. This nozzle is pressed onto skin and rubbed slowly throughout the skin. The crystals of aluminium oxide when come in contact with the skin they remove the dead skin cell and then it being sucked away by vacuum.
Calming the skin is one crucial step after the exfoliation. As the skin gets ripped of the topmost layer it gets slightly tender and raw. Aloe gel or any other lotion according to skin type is applied and followed by a face pack and sunblock.
Key Points regarding Skin Polishing:
If you are dealing with dull, lifeless skin or having trouble with mild pigmentation , scaring then you can choose a skin polishing session. The number of sessions depend on how sever is the problem. A consultation with a skin specialist will help you in choosing perfect number of sittings.
The process is not painful but a mild sensation is there on skin and the crystal rub through the skin.
Skin might become slightly sensitive and dry after the session. A good sunblock is always advised to be used thoroughly for next 3-4 days. Doctor examines the skin and will suggest products accordingly.
Immediately after the session, the skin might look slightly pink which fades away in an hour or two.
Microdermabrasion session lasts for 30- 45 mins and has very little down time. It is usually called “lunch hour facial”.
When done professionally, microdermabrasion gives great results and minimizes the risk of over exfoliation and raw skin.
The effects of skin polishing are almost immediate. The skin looks fresh, glowing , lighter and supple. The best results are generally seen after multiple session held in the interval of two to three weeks. But if someone with a healthy skin is just looking for a general glow one session also works pretty fine.
One session at AK Clinics costs about Rs 2000.
Skin Polishing at AK Clinics was my first experience with any such professional skin therapy. AK Clinics has excelled in all my expectations. The Clinic is brilliantly neat and comfortable. The doctors are very patient in examining the skin and answering the queries. My doctor explained all my queries regarding the skin and the process in lot of detail and not even at one moment I felt she was rushing the process.
As for the results, I was pretty happy. Before I went in for the session my skin was extremely dry, flaky and had few troublesome whiteheads. After the session my skin felt extremely smooth, the flakiness was all gone and the whiteheads were ever cleared. I was suggested to use a particular face cream by the doctor as a follow up for dryness.
I feel one session of skin polishing works much more better and deeply than a salon facial which works more superficially.
