Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure which gently resurfaces the skin. This exfoliation is performed with medical grade mineral crystals or diamond tip which brushes the skin’s surface creating a gentle vacuum. This action eliminates dead and damaged skin cells at the surface, and the skin is left feeling soft and supple.
Microdermabrasion has been documented to effectively minimize the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Sun damaged skin
- Dull and congested skin
- Uneven skin tones and textural damaged skin
- Enlarged pores
- Anywhere on the body

Who can benefit?
Men and women of any skin type and colour can benefit. Anyone with aging, congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull, and sun damaged skin will become rejuvenated and refreshed. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones, and texture will also be improved.
Microdermabrasion is effective because approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form, they push their way to the surface and then dead cells settle on the surface. This can cause enlarged pores, clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, and a dull appearance. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance.
After treatment your skin may feel tight. Some patients even experience light flaking of the skin so it is important to use a good moisturizer as advised by our skin therapists. There is minimal downtime, which is why microdermabrasion is often described as “the lunch hour” procedure.
