Medical Grade Treatments

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 reveals the fresher, younger cells beneath.

Microdermabrasion improves and treats aging and sun damaged skin, altered pigmentation, fine lines, clogged pores, skin tone and texture. Microdermabrasion treatments are most effective after a series of treatments; however, a noticeable improvement is seen after one treatment. Microdermabrasion can work compatibly with other skin care options and is usually part of an integrated skin care program designed specifically for your skin type.

How Microdermabrasion Treatments Work

Microdermabrasion is suitable for Burnaby and Vancouver patients who would like to reduce the visibility of fine lines, and age spots. Microdermabrasion uses small particles to “sand” or “polish” the skin which gradually removes discoloured epidermal tissue. Microdermabrasion stimulates and increases circulation in the skin. By removing dead skin cells and impurities, the skins texture and appearance will improve.

What to Expect with Microdermabrasion Treatments

After a treatment, the rejuvenated skin is visibly more healthy and vibrant. By repeating this treatment over the course of several weeks, the younger, softer skin moves up to the surface.

A treatment typically takes approximately 35 minutes and most Burnaby and Vancouver patients find the microdermabrasion treatment to be quite relaxing. This gentle, non-abrasive technique provides satisfying results with no downtime. Some clients may notice a tightening or light flaking of the skin, so a good moisturizer is helpful after the treatment. The benefits of your microdermabrasion treatment will be noticeable after your first session, as your skin will feel smoother and softer. Your improvements will continue to progress throughout the course of your treatment program. Microdermabrasion works synergistically with glycolic peels.
