Individuals who wish to improve fine lines, wrinkles, textural irregularities, sunspots, sun-damaged skin, aging or oily skin, enlarged pores, and acne scarring.

Prep/Pre-Op

Keeping your face clean and clear of any dirt or bacteria will help prevent infection from occurring.  Your physician or registered nurse may provide you with additional instructions to take into consideration before your cystal peel procedure.

Procedure Details

The Crystal Peel microdermabrasion procedure involves the use of a high speed diamond-tipped machine that safely and gently removes.  

Traditionally, aluminum oxide crystals were used by propelling the aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin as an abrasive to remove the outermost skin layer made of dead skin cells.  However, clinics are more commonly adopting the diamond-tipped hand held device for Crystal Peel microdermabrasion.

After Care Instructions

Your SpaMedica Toronto in-office treatment programs will be supported by a medical grade Home Skin Care Plan which will enhance your treatment results. Home based medical skin care products will keep your skin looking as nice as possible. SpaMedica dermatology specialists will help formulate the best possible skin care program for your skin type.

Maintenance Required

Crystal Peels can be performed every 14 days to every month for the best aesthetic skin care results.

Side Effects and Risks

Risks, complications, and side effects from microdermabrasion are quite rare when receiving care from a certified physician.  Risks associated with Crystal Peel microdermabrasion are usually caused by unsanitary conditions and tools that are not properly sanitized, which can be avoided by finding a reputable doctor to perform your treatment.

Outcomes

Many Toronto patients that undergo Crystal Peel treatments see dramatic improvements in oily or dull skin, enlarged or clogged pores, fine lines, uneven pigmentation, poor skin texture, and mild acne scars.

Benefits

Crystal Peel microdermabrasion treatments are safe for all skin types, colours, and textures, with results typically seen after the first treatment and amplified with each subsequent visit.  

Additional Procedures

In addition to Crystal Peel, Silk Peel, Chemical Peel or SonoPeel microdermabrasion, our SpaMedica medical spa or dermatology specialists in Toronto may add Blue Light to microdermabrasion when treating acne. Blue Light acts to stimulate special chemicals in your sebaceous glands, called protoporphyrins which attack and kill the bacteria in the sebaceous glands that can lead to acne.  Our SpaMedica dermatology specialists may combine FotoFacial RF Treatments together with your Crystal Peel, Silk Peel, SonoPeel or Chemical Peel Microdermabrasion to further enhance the results of a smoother complexion with diminished fine lines, age spots, brown spots, redness and textural irregularities.

Cost

Each treatment ranges from $189 and a four-treatment package may be purchased for $650.
