Why going to a professional is a must for microdermabrasion

August 21, 2019

Microdermabrasion. You probably know it has something to do with achieving better skin. But what you may not know is how important it is to go to a certified professional when it comes to undergoing any dermatological procedure—especially those that penetrate beyond the skin-deep. At-home microdermabrasion kits, although designed to treat the same skin problems as professional treatments, are simply not capable of producing the same results as professional ones. I offer my patients both skill and experience in the field of cosmetic surgery: my practice has been flourishing for 20+ years. Microdermabrasion at Toronto’s SpaMedica is a top tier treatment provided by a dedicated team who deliver the highest level of care using only the most advanced microdermabrasion treatments and products available.


The SonoPeel microdermabrasion device we use harnesses gentle, minimally invasive ultrasound energy to smooth and micro-abrade the surface of your skin. SonoPeel ultrasound waves thin the outer dead layer of your skin cells (the stratum corneum) to create smoother, more youthful-looking skin. This process also helps to reduce blackheads, whiteheads, and sebaceous plugs, all of which contribute to acne breakouts and skin quality in general.

To achieve the best results possible, your SonoPeel microdermabrasion procedure at SpaMedica will take 4-12 treatments, dependent on your skin type and specific skin condition, and you can safely undergo a SonoPeel once every 4 weeks. Each SonoPeel treatment works to help your skin feel smoother, cleaner, and softer by stimulating blood flow. And, of course, combining your treatments with proper skincare at home will help your results last longer. We can thoroughly discuss proper skincare practices during your in-depth consultation pre-treatment.


SonoPeel microdermabrasion treatments are widely regarded as safe, with very few associated side effects. Since the procedure is noninvasive and relatively nonabrasive compared to other skin treatments, SonoPeel is a popular choice for those seeking a comfortable yet effective procedure. The vast majority of patients experience no side effects whatsoever, although some may see minor flakiness within 24-48 hours of treatment.


Dependent upon your skin type, other forms of microdermabrasion like Salicylic Chemical Peel Microdermabrasion or Silk Peel Diamond microdermabrasion might also be among my team’s recommendations to help you achieve the best results possible. And, Blue Light may be additionally recommended for those with acne. After a successful SonoPeel microdermabrasion procedure, the resulting smooth stratum corneum appears far more attractive, even, and bright. Don’t be surprised if your friends say you’re glowing!


Remember: Always go to a qualified microdermabrasion professional and ask them about their training, as the results you get will largely depend on their expertise. Our professionally certified SpaMedica treatment team looks forward to discussing your skin treatment options and designing the best possible treatment plan for you!
