Skin resurfacing is one of the most effective ways to create serious change in your skin. These treatments stimulate collagen production, giving you the appearance of plumper and fuller skin; removes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can help repair more serious skin concerns like pigmentation, scarring or deep lines and wrinkles.


There’s plenty of options and misinformation available for skin resurfacing, and so we wanted to break down for you the absolute BEST skin resurfacing treatments available on the market.


What do skin resurfacing treatments do?

Skin resurfacing treatments are focussed on removing the upper layer of the skin, the one that appears dry and dull and dead. By removing this layer, we are able to expose the beautiful, soft, new skin underneath, giving your face, hands, neck or décolletage a more beautiful, natural, overall glow. Most skin resurfacing treatments are designed to encourage the body’s natural repairing actions, which increase collagen and elastin production and increase the flow of blood to the face. This is what truly gives you that glow back in your skin.


Are skin resurfacing treatments for everyone?

The short answer is no, and the long answer really is maybe. Skin resurfacing treatments are designed with more mature or troublesome skin in mind – this is not for teen acne, this is not for sensitive skin and this is not for fresh baby skin. This is for skin that has seen some time and really needs a refresh. That said, everyone can benefit from skin resurfacing treatments at some stage in their life, it’s just about finding the right treatment for you.



The best resurfacing treatments for your skin


Skin Needling

An absolute powerhouse of a treatment, Skin Needling resurfaces the skin and combats signs of aging by generating new, healthy skin cells (called fibroblasts) that make your skin plump, shiny and fresh. We use Dermapen at Museo, which creates a safe healing response within the body to ignite natural collagen and elastin production in the skin, while also repairing the surface layers of the skin, to create a brighter, tighter and more even-toned skin. Perfect for face, lip area, eye area, neck, chest, hands, and even your scalp, skin needling is one of the best skin resurfacing improving treatments you can get, as well as being one of the most natural ways to achieve skin correction. With results after just one treatment (although we do recommend a course of them for correction results), Dermapen Skin Needling offers great results for the price. The only true antiaging treatment which instigates the fibroblast cell that makes new collagen.

IPL for Skin Rejuvenation

The new kid on the block in the skin resurfacing game, IPL for Skin Rejuvenation is one of the most effective treatments available. IPL is the ideal option for instantly treating and clearing reddened skins with facial vascular blemishes such as broken capillaries, spider veins, thread veins, red spots, and cherry angiomas. Regain an even balanced skin tone and treat skin discolouration issues, pigmentation, sun damage, acne scarring, and brown spots. The great thing with IPl is your first treatment gives significant results. IPL for Photo Rejuvenation (vascular + pigmentation ) is usually done in a series of treatments to cause rapid rejuvenation of the skin cells. Each treatment varies in time depending on the area being treated, for full face allow 60 mins and we generally recommend a course of 4-6 treatments to ensure really effective results. Winter is the perfect time for IPL for Photo Rejuvenation as the skin is often very sensitive to UV rays after treatment. For many clients, pigmentation can clear up to 70% in their first treatment which desquamates off the surface in approximately 7-10 days. You can have a clearer skin very quickly with minimal downtime. Most clients clearing pigment are very comfortable working the day after having IPL and using a minimal coverage foundation. We recommend using our Mineral Pro SPF Cream post-treatment to effectively protect your skin from sun damage and moisturise your skin post-treatment.

Museo Skin + Spa + Hair are offering IPL for Photo Rejuvenation to our clients in our beautiful Spa space and with some amazing offers available to you today. Book for an IPL consult – Read more about our IPL offering here.




Microdermabrasion is one of the gentlest, fastest anti-aging, and skin correcting treatments. Microdermabrasion is a mechanical way of skin resurfacing, exfoliating the upper layers of the skin by using a fine abrasive crystal (aluminum oxide) The intensity can be varied to suit an individual skin type, from light exfoliation to a deep resurfacing. This resurfacing effect helps to improve skin texture, brightness, and pigmentation while preventing epidermal thickening and reducing sebum production.

Microdermabrasion is predominantly used to treat ageing skins, thickened skins, acne scarring, enlarged pores and congestion. The best results are when teamed with an enzyme or dermal peel. Microdermabrasion is a suitable skin treatment for most skins, especially post acneic or thickened skins but is not appropriate for sensitive and compromised skins.

When microdermabrasion is combined with other treatments like chemical peels or hydrating masks, it can pack a serious punch and show significant results in your skin. We have packages specifically designed for this kind of combo treatment, so please speak to the Spa to secure your appointment. Book in for a Micro + Derm Peel appointment here.



Dermal Peels

Dermal Peels are designed to rejuvenate your skin and correct a variety of skin problems, including pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, photo damage, acne and scarring. Dermal peels can be fully customised to suit your specific skin concerns and what will work with your skin. Dermal Peels use medical-strength active ingredients to achieve cell optimisation and a healthy complexion without mechanical abrasion and are fantastic for all skin types and specifically those wanting to combat the aging process. Combined with a mechanical treatment like microdermabrasion or when used as a Power Peel combination where 2 peels are applied they can be a powerful antidote to aging and treating those skins needing correction to be optimally healthy and look amazing.
