Microdermabrasion Facial Treatment in Toronto
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that gently resurfaces the skin. Microdermabrasion exfoliation is performed with a diamond tip which brushes the skin’s surface with the aid of a gentle vacuum. This action removes dead and damaged cells at the skin’s surface. By eliminating these surface cells with microdermabrasion, the skin is left soft and supple while forcing the regeneration of new skin cells. Microdermabrasion at Bellair Laser Clinic is combined with a complete facial which includes treatment creams, a mask, high frequency and extractions if necessary.
Bellair Laser Clinic uses only FDA approved microdermabrasion systems which have been documented to effectively minimize the appearance of:
• Fine lines
• Sun damaged skin
• Dull and congested skin
• Uneven skin tones and textural damaged skin
• Enlargened pores
After a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin may feel tight. Some individuals experience light flaking of the skin, therefore, it is important to use a good moisturizer as advised by our skin therapists. Otherwise there are minimal side effects, which is why microdermabrasion is often described as the lunch hour procedure.
Depending on the condition of your skin, our skin therapists may advise multiple treatments and/or combining microdermabrasion with Chemical peels, Photo Rejuvenation, and Laser Facial treatments for optimal results. Microdermabrasion facials are usually kept at 2-3 week intervals and maintenance treatments are usually performed once a month. Microdermabrasion treatments are approximately 45 minutes in length.
Before beginning microdermabrasion treatments at Bellair Laser Clinic, we encourage all clients to visit us for a complimentary skin consultation at any of our two convenient Toronto locations. At this time we will analyze your skin and provide recommendations for what treatment is best for you based on your skins needs and your personal goals for your skin.
NOTE: Individual Results May Vary
Why Should I have Microdermabrasion Treatments?
Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance. If the skin does not shed properly, dead cells settle on the surface causing clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, breakouts and a dull appearance.
Who Can Benefit From Microdermabrasion?
Men and women of any skin type or colour. Anyone with aged, congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull and sun damaged skin will experience a rejuvenated and refreshed complexion. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture will also be improved.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
The actual treatment usually takes 15-40 minutes, depending on the area. The treatment is applied after cleansing the skin and a moisturizing sun block is applied following treatment.
What Is The Difference Between Microdermabrasion And Peels?
Both microdermabrasion and chemical peels exfoliate the skin however they do so by different means. Microdermabrasion removes the top layer with the use of a diamond tip that brushes the skin. Chemical peels are exfoliating the skin as well with the use of a acid such as glycolic, salicyclic or a peel blend which penetrates different depths of the skin. For someone who wants a light skin exfoliation without excessive skin peeling, microdermabrasion is a great option.
