Microdermabrasion is a specialized cosmetic treatment for the skin. Most of our clients ask us about the most effective way of improving the appearance of age spots, injury or acne scars, fine wrinkles and crow’s feet, and other unwanted skin conditions. Microdermabrasion is one of the procedures we most often recommend for our clients who are not yet ready to undergo something more aggressive. It’s also suitable for all skin types as it won’t discolor the skin.
Candidates for Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion gently lifts away the epidermis, and this triggers new skin growth. Because the body is responding to a sort of injury, accelerated tissue production begins, and this tissue is likely healthier than what it’s replacing.
Candidates for microdermabrasion will be experiencing such visual signs of aging as darkened age spots and deeper, darker freckles, redness or dull brown tone around injury scars, stretch marks that are becoming more and more rippled and raised above the skin surface level, and enlarged pores that now trap dirt and dead skin cells more readily.
How It Works
There are different techniques for microdermabrasion, and at Delta Laser & Skin Care Centre, we use a specialized crystal-free technique that gently removes the dead and damaged skin cells. The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office and usually only takes just minutes to complete.
There’s no extensive downtime for the client after the treatment session. Normal activities can typically be resumed at once. As such, this is an extremely convenient treatment that won’t require you to take days or weeks off of work or away from your daily schedule.
The accelerated tissue growth begins at the lower dermal layer, and the layers in turn mutate as they move upward toward the surface. In other words, the epidermis actually forms further below and moves upward to replace damaged skin. The results are therefore not immediately noticeable, but in the months following the treatment, the rapid tissue growth, combined with an increase in
the production of collagen, results in smoother, wrinkle-free skin that is much more visually appealing.
