Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment used to exfoliate the skin. The tool used for this procedure has a diamond shaped tip that brushes the skin’s surface along with a gentle vacuum. Dead cells are removed through microdermabrasion resulting in soft skin as well as the regeneration of new skin cells. At Chellsey Medi-Spa Clinic, we ensure that our clients are getting the best results where we combine microdermabrasion with a full facial including a mask, creams, high frequency and extractions!

Our latest technology, Microdermabrasion (Drma Bod) is a non-invasive treatment which gently extracts cells to treat imperfections on surface of the skin such as acne, scarring, blemishes, sun damage, pores, pigmentation, blackheads, stretch marks, and wrinkles. The procedures is performed by applying aluminum oxide crystals on the surface of the skin for a gentle scrape of damaged skin cells to produce healthier and newer looking skin. Elastin and collagen fibers are also stimulated during the procedure which improves skin texture and elasticity. Blood supply is increased as a result of the vacuum effect which works by stimulating micro-circulation. This in turn provides essential nutrients requires for skin rejuvenation. The treatments include a soft, soothing mark as well as a moisturizer.

Can I benefit from just one treatment?

Benefits can be seen from one treatment of microdermabrasion, especially if you have an upcoming special event. You would certainly be left with smoother, glowing skin instantly. Also, because it is a non-invasive procedure (much milder than a light chemical peel), no recovery time is required. You can expect to presume your regular activities immediately post-treatment.

Can I have this treatment in combination with other procedures?

Microdermabrasion can be combined with other anti-aging procedures such as chemical peels, intense pulsed light (IPL or BBL), BOTOX COSMETICS and injectable fillers (i.e. Juvederm, Restylane, etc). To maintain the effects of the procedures however, it is recommended that sun protection and anti-aging products are used regularly. The dermatologists at Toronto Dermatology Centre and their experienced staff can customize a treatment plan for you.
