Nouri Face & Body Concepts’ results-driven skin rejuvenation facial service programs have won them many a 5 star reviews on Google from local skincare enthusiasts and customers who hail from as far as Canada, America, Germany and Australia.

They come highly endorsed for their “No hard selling” policy, unlike other establishments, as the founder firmly believes that the results of the treatments should speak volumes for themselves.


The founder, Valerie, had struggled with cystic acne and the post-trauma effects of an uneven complexion ridden with acne marks and scarring. In her youth, she was denied work in reputable beauty salons and cosmetic houses due to her acne-ridden complexion. Undaunted, she founded Nouri Face & Body Concepts with a vision to help others attain a smooth and healthy complexion with non-invasive and affordable solutions based facial programs.

Microdermabrasion is certainly not your run-of-the-mill facial and exfoliation treatments though, it buffs the skin by exfoliating and removing the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. This action polishes the skin and holds in moisture. To zero in on a myriad of issues like pore refining and tightening, this carbon laser skin resurfacing treatment offered by Nouri Face & Body Concepts truly pushes boundaries where beauty innovation is concerned.


When considering acne scarring treatments or pigmentation removal, having a microdermabrasion facial treatment reduces acne, scars and post-acne dark spots, and brightens a dull complexion. Taking away the unpleasantries from painful extractions or injections, this non-invasive treatment firms, corrects, and sculpts without requiring any recovery time. Many people opt for microdermabrasion over harsh chemical peels or injectable hyaluronic fillers as it is generally more cost-effective and safer.


At Nouri Face & Body Concepts, they have crafted a reputation for themselves for creating award-winning facials. Case in point: their highly reviewed microdermabrasion facial services won at our recent Beauty Insider 2018 Spa & Salon Awards!

This cult-favourite facial is our kind of beauty magic.


Acne marks

These appear as visible dark spots which lie flat on the skin, lending the appearance of unhealthy skin. Although acne marks and dark spots are a part of the skin’s natural healing process, it can take months and even up to more than a year for these blemishes to fade off, hence a microdermabrasion treatment can help assist the skin to shed the dead cells on the marks efficiently.

Acne scars

There are two categories of acne scarring that follow after a serious condition of acne has recovered. Patients are usually to deal with scars that result in depressions in the skin and/or raised scars which are the aftermath of the trauma of post acne recovery.


  • Thick raised scars
  • Scars that have over healed, appearing in a keloid effect.


  • Ice pick scars: Deep holes that are narrow in width, resembling a deep and empty pore
  • Boxcar scars: Broad with oblong depressions with visible edges
  • Rolling scars: Broad depressions that have rounded, sloping edges, hence the name.

These acne scars mentioned tend to have a more permanent effect, a series of microdermabrasion treatments are advised to help even out the texture and smoothen the surface of the skin.

Dilated pores

Dilated pores are often caused by hereditary, excessive sebum secretions, ageing and humid climate conditions.

Hormonal changes such as puberty, menstruation, pregnancy and menopause are also factors that contribute to enlarged pores.

Enlarged pores trap dirt more easily, thus causing the pores to look dark and noticeable.


Pigmentation appears in dark spots or brown patches on the skin due to an overproduction of melanin in the skin. It is usually caused by heredity, pregnancy, menopause, the use of unsuitable cosmetics, overexposure in the sun, environmental pollution and stress.

While microdermabrasion certainly helps to lighten skin pigmentation, patients are advised to follow up with a suitable skincare and cosmetic products that are free from harmful additives.



A layer of microdermabrasion exfoliating gel mask is first applied, containing fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate away dead cells whilst opening the pores, allowing them to be more receptive of the carbon facial mask used in the latter part of the treatment.

The treatment takes about 60 minutes as the esthetician precisely cleanses and corrects the irregularities on the epidermis, using a combination of Nourifbc ‘s microdermabrasion exfoliating gel and black doll carbon face peel to allow the pores to be more receptive.


For those on the go, a clear and brighter complexion is attainable just under an hour with Nourifbc ‘s efficient carbon laser microdermabrasion facial.

It warrants the right amount of heat and light energy to slough off all the dead cells and delivers a uniform exfoliation to all facial skin areas without damage to the dermis.

As the treatment works on just the surface layers of the skin, the sensation merely feels like light pinching on the skin. When deep cleansing the pores to help reduce the occurrence of blackheads and whitehead, the area may be subjected to more sensitivity.

Having experienced the first session of microdermabrasion facial at Nouri Face & Body Concepts, satisfied customer, Ena Teo, discusses her aesthetic goals of wanting to refine dilated pores and lighten post acne marks with their experienced estheticians, who will create customised treatment plans to best match and meet their customer ’s needs.

Although one session yields immediate results, microdermabrasion works more effectively when done regularly with intervals in between treatments. Microdermabrasion facial treatments are typically performed in a series of about 5 to 10 treatments. As your skin regenerates about every 30 days, it makes the results temporary. Your skin type may also play a factor in the number of performed treatments administered.
