Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective form of exfoliation with no downtime and no discomfort. The diamond microdermabrasion peel utilizes state of the art technology. It combines the polishing action of tiny laser cut diamonds with the cleaning action of a vacuum to gently remove the cells of the top layers of the skin. It can be compared to a controlled and gentle sanding of the skin.
Who can benefit?
Men and women of any skin type or colour, with aging, flaky, dull, sun damaged skin will benefit from this procedure.
What improvements will I see?
Microdermabrasion will result in smoother, brighter skin, with a reduction in brown pigmentation, age spots, fine lines, mild acne scars, and refined pores. It can help improve the clogged pores of mild acne. It stimulates the growth of new collagen so skin appears thicker and firmer.
What areas can be treated?
Areas that are usually treated include the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back, arms and hands.
How long does each treatment take?
The treatment takes 20 to 40 minutes, depending on which areas are being treated.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of about 6 sessions, 1 to 2 weeks apart will be most beneficial.
Can I benefit from just one treatment?
Before a special event, microdermabrasion may be done as a single treatment to give instantly smooth, glowing skin. Since it is milder than a light chemical peel, there is no recovery time and regular activities may be resumed immediately after the treatment.
Can I have this treatment in combination with other procedures?
Microdermabrasion may be used with other anti-aging procedures such as chemical peels, intense pulsed light, Thermage®, Fraxel™, SmartXide™, Botox® Cosmetic and filler substances. Sun protection and anti-aging products will help maintain the effects of this treatment. Dr. Gidon and her experienced staff can customize a treatment plan for you.
