MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion is a mechanical form of skin exfoliation using a stream of abrasive diamond shaped crystals combined with suction. It exfoliates the upper layers of skin and stimulates collagen growth in the lower layers. The intensity can be varied to suit an individual skin concerns from a light exfoliation to deep resurfacing. Consequently, you see an improvement in skin texture, more even colouring, fine lines, fewer breakouts, refined pores, renewed elasticity and a more youthful appearance. It has proven to be a very popular, non-surgical cosmetic procedure with no downtime. Exfoliation and buffing can improve the appearance of aging skin, fine lines, scarring, sun damage and wrinkles.

  • Works on all skin types
  • No risk
  • Non-invasive
  • No down time

What Microdermabrasion can treat:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Acne prone skin
  • Age spots

During a Vancouver microdermabrasion treatment, nylon and silk bristles are moved across the skin with applied vacuum suction, resulting in a very gentle and controlled exfoliation of the skin. The treatment also removes dead surface cells and clears the pores of debris. Over time and treatments, pigment fades away and surface irregularities, such as fine wrinkles and acne scars, begin to soften. The vacuum suction can be increased depending on patient tolerance for more aggressive blackhead clearance.

Treatment of the whole face takes about 30 minutes. There is no pain. The area treated may be slightly pink for 1 to 2 days. For smooth skin, a little microdermabrasion goes a long way. Sloughing off the uppermost layer of the skin reveals a fresher, younger-looking face. Regular microdermabrasion sessions are perfect for keeping superficial lines to a minimum, and active skin products will penetrate better following microdermabrasion.
