Calgary Microdermabrasion

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an effective, non-surgical way to get rid of acne scars, fine wrinkles and sunspots by exfoliating the top layers of the skin. No chemicals or laser beams are used, only aluminum oxide micro crystals that gently sandblast your skin, leaving it smooth and fresh. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen production, helping your skin rejuvenate faster than normal. Also called the lunchtime peel, microderm abrasion takes up to one hour and has no downtime.

What can I expect?

Your skin is first cleansed and toned. The technician will then starts the microdermabrasion procedure using a hand-held device. The aluminium oxide micro crystal flow is sandblasted through a small tube pressed against the skin. The tube also vacuums back dead skin cells and used micro crystals.

The crystal flow starts as soon as the microdermabrasion wand touches your skin. The technician slowly moves the wand across your entire face and not just on treated areas, so that you don’t experience inconsistency in skin texture or colour. After microdermabrasion, your skin is soothed with a special nourishing mask and sun blocking cream allowing you to go back to your daily routine immediately after treatment.
