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 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, acne, redness, as well as skin tone and texture. Microdermabrasion treatments are most effective for patients after a series of treatments; however, a noticeable improvement in tone, texture and acne can be seen after just one treatment!
Microdermabrasion can also work wonders when combined with other skin care service options at our medical spa, such as a glycolic peel, laser hair removal, or Botox Cosmetic, 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 treatments are 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.

Your Microdermabrasion Burnaby Treatment
Microdermabrasion is suitable for patients who would like to improve the appearance of their skin texture and quality on their face and/or body. More specifically, microdermabrasion can exfoliate your skin, giving you a refreshed appearance.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work
Microdermabrasion uses a handheld device that gently sprays small particles to polish the skin. This gradually loosens discoloured, irregular and damaged epidermal tissue with its exfoliating properties, which are then suctioned away. Acne-causing bacteria can also be removed.
Microdermabrasion stimulates and increases circulation in the skin. This, combined with the removal of dead skin cells and impurities, will allow the treated 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.
How does microdermabrasion work?
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 appointment, your complexion will feel smoother and more vibrant. Our patients have noticed that their skin has a beautiful glow as well.
With time, your complexion will become more even in skin texture and appearance as fresh new cells are revealed.
Is microdermabrasion treatment painful?
Microdermabrasion at our Burnaby BC spa may feel uncomfortable, but you should not feel pain. In fact, it is one of the gentlest non invasive treatments available and some equate it to more intense facials.
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 procedures, which is normal. Apply a good moisturizer to help reduce this minor side effect. Please allow time for your skin to strengthen before undergoing another procedure, like laser hair removal or Botox.
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 other cosmetic treatments, such as Botox Cosmetic or dermal fillers, he will be open and transparent about that and let you know exactly what you need to get the results you want. We offer a variety of services that can give you the best results for your skin.
What can microdermabrasion do for my skin cells?
Our advanced microdermabrasion system at our medical spa has been repeatedly proven to treat the following skin concerns:
Fine lines and minor wrinkles
Pigmentation irregularities, such as brown spots and age spots
Acne and acne scars
You’ll notice improvement in your complexion after a single treatment, although more may be recommended to achieve desired results.
The procedure can be combined with other services for the best results, such as Botox Cosmetic, dermal fillers, laser hair removal and other lasers for a healthy glow.
Will I need more than one treatment to eliminate dead skin cells?
While you will be able to see improvement in the beauty of your skin after one microdermabrasion treatment at our medical spa in Burnaby BC, it is recommended you have several treatment sessions over the course of a few weeks in order to get the skin care 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.
