Since there are different types of microdermabrasion treatments, their cost varies. During your SpaMedica consultation, you can discuss different microdermabrasion treatments, your budget, and your aesthetic goals.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive treatment that utilizes an abrasive instrument to gently sand and exfoliate the skin, removing the thick, uneven outer layer. Microdermabrasion can treat scarring, discoloration, fine lines, sun damage, and stretch marks.
Quick and painless, a SilkPeel treatment is designed to illuminate and rejuvenate the skin’s complexion. By utilizing a gentle device that exfoliates the skin, a SilkPeel treatment promotes the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, minor scars, acne, and sun damage while instilling a youthful glow.
The results from your SilkPeel procedure will be visible immediately after the treatment, making the skin instantly appear hydrated and smoother. SilkPeel moisturizes dry and flaky skin, providing a brightening boost to discoloured and imbalanced layers.
Small aluminum crystals are blown on the skin during a Crystal Peel microdermabrasion treatment, removing the outermost layers of the skin. This works to remove oil, shed dead skin cells, unclog pores, and improve the appearance of acne and scarring. You will also notice improved tone, texture, and higher collagen production.
SonoPeel is the latest microdermabrasion technology. SonoPeel microdermabrasion is fast (your full face can be rejuvenated in as little as 15 minutes), effective in keratinocyte reduction, hydrating, gentle, and versatile for all skin types.
There is no recovery time required following your microdermabrasion treatment. You can return to your regular activities immediately, and any swelling or redness will go away within 24 hours.
The length of your treatment time is dependent on the technique you choose and the size of the area that is being treated. On average, microdermabrasion takes around 30 minutes.
Whether you are a good candidate or not will be decided during your consultation, but to determine your eligibility beforehand, you should:
If you are pregnant, have severe acne, deep scars, lesions, facial warts, herpes, unmanaged diabetes, an autoimmune disorder, or severe skin conditions, you may benefit from a different skin treatment that can address these concerns, such as laser therapy or a chemical peel.
Microdermabrasion can improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, and help reduce or eliminate other skin concerns such as fine lines, clogged pores, or scarring. Since these concerns can result in lowered self-esteem, improving your skin’s tone and texture can help improve your quality of life by improving self-confidence and self-image.
While microdermabrasion treatments are usually very safe, there are some risks. These include:
These side effects only last one to two days and are not cause for concern.
At SpaMedica, our team of clinical professionals will work closely with you to determine your specific facial concerns, and to choose what type of microdermabrasion treatment will result in the best outcome. Our staff are experienced, talented and highly professional, and will perform your chemical peel in SpaMedica’s state-of-the-art facilities. In addition, staff and clinicians are available to answer any questions that may arise during your recovery period, and will advise on the benefits of repeat microdermabrasion treatments following your recovery.
Before your procedure, you can consult with the clinical team at SpaMedica to determine what type of microdermabrasion treatment is best for you. Microdermabrasion treatments like SilkPeel and Sonopeel are minimally invasive procedures that renew your skin’s tone and texture while also helping to improve the appearance of sun damage, clogged pores, fine lines, scarring, and other conditions.
The treatment uses a special application that sands away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it, get rid of skin concerns, and promote collagen production. Different microdermabrasion techniques like Crystal Peel sprays fine aluminum particles combined with suction to create the same abrasive effect on the outer layer of the skin.
Microdermabrasion is an outpatient procedure, meaning you will be able to go home directly following your treatment.
For more dramatic results, you may wish to pair other non-surgical procedures with your microdermabrasion treatment. A chemical peel or microneedling pairs well with microdermabrasion.
Speak with the clinicians at SpaMedica to determine whether any of our other non-surgical techniques can help you better achieve your optimal desired results.
Prior to your microdermabrasion treatment, avoid harsh exfoliants and tanning or hair removal techniques in the treatment area for about two weeks. Sun exposure should also be avoided for a week before and after your treatment, and you should not wear any makeup to your appointment. Wait two weeks after any other skin treatments you’ve received before going in for your microdermabrasion treatment.
