Microdermabrasion in Vancouver
Reveal Your Fresher, Healthier Complexion
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.
If you suffer from acne and are currently taking medication, you’ll also find that microdermabrasion is a great complement to your regimen, as breakouts will resolve more quickly.
In fact, a study in the official journal of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Dermatologic Surgery, reported that patients experienced a statistically significant improvement in discolouration, uneven textures and overall skin appearance. A more recent study conducted by dermatologists at the University of Michigan found that microdermabrasion is able to induce collagen production as well as other beneficial compounds related to skin remodeling. By doing so, the appearance of fine lines, scars and general signs of aging are improved.

The Microdermabrasion Process
Dr. Jaffer has been working with and for the people of Vancouver for more than a decade, and he is privileged to be considered one of the top cosmetic doctors in the area. His desire to provide top of the line customer care can be seen in every detail of his practice – from the serene, spa-like environment he has created, to the care and attention he provides all of his patients.
Microdermabrasion is a form of therapeutic exfoliation of the skin. The advanced technology involves gently abrading the surface of the skin with alumnium oxie crystals, salt or diamond encrusted wand. Doing this removes dirt, debris and dead skin cells to promote the production of fresh new cells enriched with collagen. Immediately following your treatment, your skin will feel smoother and more vibrant. With time, your complexion will become more even in texture and appearance.
Your First Visit
During your first visit with Dr. Jaffer at Heights Laser Centre, he will take the time to listen to your anti-aging desires. He will also allow you ample time to ask all the questions you have regarding your microdermabrasion procedure. His goal is to provide each and every patient in Vancouver with their ideal results – that’s why he develops a personalized treatment plan for everyone and will make his recommendations based on your specific skin type and characteristics.
To decide if microdermabrasion is the right cosmetic treatment for you, we will carefully examine your problem areas. Microdermabrasion can be used on almost any area of the body, but the following are the most commonly targeted, and the ones that see the most benefit:
Microdermabrasion is suitable for 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.
