Bring new life to your skin! Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and non-invasive skin treatment that offers safe and controlled results. It works by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells to rejuvenate the skin and reveal the fresher, younger cells beneath.
Microdermabrasion improves and treats aging and sun damaged skin, altered pigmentation, fine lines, clogged pores, and skin tone and texture. Microdermabrasion treatments are most effective for Vancouver residents after a series of treatments; however, a noticeable improvement can be seen after just one treatment. Microdermabrasion can also work wonders when combined with other skin care options, such as a glycolic peel, and is usually part of an integrated skin care program designed specifically for your skin type.

Microdermabrasion can be used on almost any area of the body, but the above-listed locations are the most commonly targeted, and the ones that see the most benefit.
Your Microdermabrasion Treatment
Microdermabrasion is suitable for Vancouver patients who would like to improve the appearance of their skin quality and texture. More specifically, microdermabrasion can exfoliate your skin, giving you a refreshed appearance.
To work its magic, microdermabrasion uses small particles to polish the skin, which gradually removes discolored epidermal tissue. Microdermabrasion also stimulates and increases circulation in the skin. This, combined with the removal of dead skin cells and impurities, will allow the skin to quickly boast a fresher, more radiant appearance.
A treatment typically takes approximately 45 minutes, and most Vancouver patients find the microdermabrasion treatment to be quite relaxing. This gentle, non-abrasive technique provides satisfying results with no downtime. You could even come in for a treatment during your lunch break and get right back to work when your treatment session is complete.
Expectations & Results
After your microdermabrasion treatment, your rejuvenated skin will immediately be visibly healthier and more vibrant. By visiting Dr. Jaffer at Heights Laser Centre to repeat this treatment over the course of several weeks, the younger, softer skin will gradually move up to the surface.
Frequently Asked Questions About Microdermabrasion
Is microdermabrasion painful?
Microdermabrasion may feel uncomfortable, but it should not be painful. In fact, it is one of the gentlest treatments available. If you have very sensitive skin, you may experience some mild bruising, but this will subside quickly and is not common. You may also notice a tightening or light flaking of the skin after your treatment, so Dr. Jaffer recommends that his patients apply a good moisturizer to help reduce this minor side effect.
How do I know if microdermabrasion is the right cosmetic treatment for me?
This is a question only Dr. Jaffer or a highly-trained member of his staff can decide during your initial consultation. If he believes you could benefit from microdermabrasion, he will recommend it as a treatment option and suggest his recommended number of treatment sessions. If he believes you could benefit from another cosmetic treatment, he will be open and transparent about that and let you know exactly what you need to get the results you want.
Will I need more than one treatment?
While you will be able to see improvement after one microdermabrasion treatment, it is recommended you have several treatments over the course of a few weeks in order to get the results you desire. Again, how many treatments you will need will be based on your specific skin type and the severity of your problem areas.
