Microdermabrasion in North York

Treat and smooth your skin

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive technique that uses ultrasound waves to remove top layer of skin cells. This process exfoliates the thickened epidermis, removing skin debris thus revealing healthier skin. It is usually performed on the face and neck, but can be performed on any part of the body, such as the backs of the hands.

Microdermabrasion is generally suggested for:

  • Dull, oily skin texture
  • Minimizing enlarged pores
  • Exfoliating and suctioning clogged pores in acne cases
  • Polishing and reducing fine lines
  • Mild acne scarring
  • Mild pigment irregularities
  • Enhancing penetration of therapeutic remedies
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Minimizing blemishes
  • Elimination of white and black heads

Microdermabrasion can improve rough skin texture, some types of scarring, uneven pigmentation, sun damage and age spots. It can also remove or improve whiteheads and black heads, some stretch marks, and fine wrinkles. It can clean your pores thoroughly and hinder any future breaks outs if used on a regular basis. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen net working to further even out skin texture and appearance.

FAQ

Q: Is it safe for all skin types?

A: Yes, microdermabrasion is safe for every skin type and skin color.

Q: Why have microdermabrasion?

A: Microdermabrasion is generally suggested for:

  • Dull, oily skin texture
  • Minimizing enlarged pores
  • Exfoliating and suctioning clogged pores in acne cases
  • Polishing and reducing fine lines. Treatments will not significantly improve advanced deep wrinkles.
  • Mild acne scarring
  • Mild pigment irregularities
  • Enhancing penetration of therapeutic remedies
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Minimizing blemishes
  • Elimination of white and black heads
  • Microdermabrasion cannot be expected to removed deep scars or wrinkles, birth marks or tattoos. If you have no history of hypo/hyper-pigmentation or keloid scarring in your family you should consider microdermabrasion as an alternative to a deeper invasive peel.

Q: How is Microdermabrasion performed?

A: A cleanser is applied to the skin to remove excess oils and makeup. A wand like object is manually passed over the skin in areas of damage. The machine delivers ultrasonic vibrations to the face that "blast" away dead skin and impurities. The procedure lasts about 15 to 30 minutes.

Q: How often are the treatments given?

A: Microdermabrasion requires a series of treatments. While results are achieved with a single treatment, it is an unrealistic to expect significant results from a single treatment.

Cumulative results can be significant with as little as treatments repeated one to three weeks apart.

Q: Does Microdermabrasion hurt?

A: Microdermabrasion does not hurt although it may sting a little around the eye area.

Q: When can I return to work?

A: You can return to work immediately, there is no down time.

Q: Are there any risks involved?

A: The procedure does not involve any serious, known risks. Some patients with very sensitive skin may experience some irritation.
