MICRODERMABRASION AT DERMCARE, MISSISSAUGA
DermCare is proud to provide Mississauga patients with a wide variety of gentle, effective dermatological solutions. Microdermabrasion is a favorite among patients who want the benefits of skin rejuvenation without invasive procedures or downtime.
WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
This procedure is often inaccurately associated with dermabrasion, which is an aggressive resurfacing technique. By contrast, microdermabrasion is very gentle. A specially designed diamond tip lifts dead and damaged cells, while gentle suction removes the debris. The result is softer, smoother, more supple skin with an improved tone and complexion.
BENEFITS OF TREATMENT
This gentle resurfacing of skin has a variety of benefits. Microdermabrasion may be recommended to treat:
- Rough, uneven skin texture or large pores
- Hyperpigmentation, such as solar lentigines (also called age spots or liver spots)
- Superficial wrinkles and fine lines
- Complexion problems and dull skin
- Uneven skin tone
- General signs of aging and sun damage
WHAT TO EXPECT
The procedure – The microdermabrasion procedure is fast and convenient, usually takes less than one hour. You may feel vibration, gentle suction, or a slight scratching sensation. However, patients do not describe it as painful.
Number of treatments – You will notice visible improvement after just one microdermabrasion session. However, we may recommend two or more sessions for optimal results.
Recovery – Post-treatment care couldn’t be easier! There is no downtime or healing period. After treatment, you can simply go on about your life with healthier and more attractive skin. Your dermatologist may recommend increasing moisturizer to prevent skin dehydration.
Results – The longevity of microdermabrasion results depends on several factors, including your skin type and the nature of the problem being treated. However, it is generally considered a long-lasting procedure, especially if you take good care of your skin.
