Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a complimentary consultation with a SKIN specialist who will review previous and current skin care, perform a detailed skin analysis, and discuss general health history before recommending a customized treatment program. As the number of treatments varies from patient to patient, a price quote will be given during consultation.
Medical Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation of the skin using either crystals or a diamond tip applied to the skin at high pressure, to remove dead skin cells, clear pores and produce a clear, healthy complexion. Microdermabrasion with salt crystals uses a device like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny aluminum oxide crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with vacuum-like suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. Microdermabrasion with a diamond tip uses a specialized diamond tip hand piece to remove dead skin cells, clear pores and produce a clear, healthy complexion. The wand tip is made of natural diamond chips which polish the skin and remove dead cells, which are then vacuumed off the surface of the skin. The Microdermabrasion system using a diamond tip is able to reach areas closer to the eyes and mouth because there is no risk of stray crystals causing damage or being ingested.
Medical Microdermabrasion treatments are relatively quick, depending on the size of the areas being treated. A whole face generally requires 20-30 minutes.
Medical Microdermabrasion treatments are usually well tolerated by patients. Sometimes for patients with more sensitive skin a slight redness is evident in the treated area, which dissipates quickly. There are no post-treatment regimens. Once your treatment is complete, you are free to resume your normal activities and you can apply make-up immediately. Many find their skin takes on a healthy glow and feels instantly cleaner.
Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, fine lines, wrinkles, mild acne scarring, and overall skin tone and texture. Removing the dead skin will help the skin better absorb products and allow makeup to be applied more smoothly. The number of treatments needed to achieve your desired outcome will depend on the condition of your skin and will be discussed in consultation. Maintenance treatments may be required every so often to maintain the appearance of your skin.
