Polish Dullness Away for a New You.
Microdermabrasion is a highly effective non-invasive approach to skin care. It can be used as an alternative or adjunct to laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. It is a quick, gentle method of skin rejuvenation for patients of all skin types and colours.
What is Microdermabrasion (MDA) and how does it work?
MDA is a superficial skin polishing procedure. This machine, exclusive to physician providers, propels a fine stream of inert microscopic crystals against the skin to gently exfoliate the epidermal layer and promote a thicker healthier dermis while smoothing and refreshing the skin. The use of a vacuum within the system helps to increase circulation in the area.
What are some indications for MDA?
Sun damaged skin of face and body
Enlarged or clogged pores
Brown pimple marks and other skin blemishes
Age spots and superficial pigmentation
Some stretch marks and acne scars
What are the treatments like?
MDA is associated with minimal discomfort and can be performed without anaesthesia. The procedure can be completed in as little as 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the areas treated and the skin problem addressed.
You skin may be slightly pink after the procedure. You can immediately put on make-up, and return to your daily activities with no downtime.
Treatments may be carried out in weekly sessions for 2 to 12 weeks to achieve maximum results, depending on your condition.
What results can I expect?
Patients often report a softer, smoother and brighter complexion with considerable reduction in the epidermal damage related to age, sun exposure or skin trauma. Improvements are seen after each treatment in most cases, with optimal benefits attained after an average of 5 to 6 treatments. Conditions such as stretch marks and acne scars may take a longer time to respond.
