Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
Microdermabrasion involves exfoliating the skin on the face, chest, neck, or hands. The procedure involves using a device that sprays fine crystals onto the skin, which remove the outermost layers of dead skin cells. This can help to improve the appearance of sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and acne scarring.
Microdermabrasion is generally considered to be safe and effective, with minimal downtime or discomfort. However, it is not suitable for everyone. Some people may be more sensitive to the treatment or may have certain medical conditions that make it unsuitable. It is important to discuss your medical history and skin care goals with a Our skin care Specialist before undergoing microdermabrasion in Sherwood Park, Edmonton.
Men and women of any skin type or colour, with aging, flaky, dull, sun damaged skin will benefit from this procedure.
Microdermabrasion treatment will result in smoother, brighter skin, with a reduction in brown pigmentation, age spots, fine lines, mild acne scars, and refined pores. It can also help improve the clogged pores of mild acne, especially those with whiteheads and blackheads. It stimulates the growth of new collagen so skin appears thicker and firmer.
Areas that are usually treated include the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back, arms and hands.
The microdermabrasion treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being treated.
A series of about 6 sessions, 2-4 weeks apart is recommended.
Before a special event, microdermabrasion may be done as a single treatment to give instantly smooth, glowing skin. Since it is milder than a light chemical peel, there is no recovery time and regular activities may be resumed immediately after the treatment.
Skin microdermabrasion may be used with other anti-aging procedures such as chemical peels, intense pulsed light (IPL or BBL), Botox and injectable fillers (e.g. Juvederm, Restylane). Sun protection and anti-aging products will help maintain the effects of this treatment. We customize a treatment plan for you.
