Microdermabrasion

How does microdermabrasion work?

Renew skin's radiance with a medical exfoliation of the skin's superficial layer. Microdermabrasion achieves exfoliation and increases circulation for refreshed looking skin. We recommend a series of four treatments for optimal results.

Does microdermabrasion remove acne scars?

Microdermabrasion can effectively smooth very superficial acne scars, but cannot completely remove acne scars. It works by removing the skin's dead cells on the very surface of the skin and stimulating circulation which leads to collagen stimulation.

By essentially 'sanding down' the skin's dead cells and increasing cell turnover, microdermabrasion improves skin smoothness and texture, but will not remove acne scars. Particularly deep acne scars will not be removed by microdermabrasion.

Why should I go to a medical professional for microdermabrasion?

While there is very little risk of negative side effects associated with this treatment, the capability of microdermabrasion machines has increased over time and only a trained skin expert will have the knowledge of how to get the best results.

Skilled and experienced Registered Nurses will often combine microdermabrasion with other treatments such as chemical peels or products, to maximize the effects, getting you the most for your money. When it comes to facial rejuvenation, a consultation with a nurse trained in proper skin care is always the best advice.
