Patients will often ask, “What can microdermabrasion do for my face?” Our Toronto-based team believes that this treatment can be ideal for restoring healthier, brighter skin when springtime arrives, and there is no recovery time. Cold, dry weather from the winter months can be harsh on your skin but spring is the perfect time for renewal. Microdermabrasion is one of the most sought-after cometic treatments that promotes skin rejuvenation and it can address a host of skin irregularities. This non-invasive treatment exfoliates to remove dead skin from the surface and restore a clearer, more even complexion.

When dead skin cells, oily sebum and dirt accumulate in the skin, the pores can become clogged. Dry skin, oily facial products, and certain medications that can promote increased oil production are other factors that can cause the pores to become congested. Blocked pores are common and they can often result in acne breakouts. Many patients also experience dull or lackluster skin, discoloration, lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and other imperfections. By removing superficial layers of damaged skin, while also promoting the production of collagen and elastin, microdermabrasion can give you a smoother complexion. Let’s take a look at some of the main benefits associated with this treatment.

  • Unclogging pores and removing blackheads
  • Reducing oiliness
  • Minimizing dilated pores
  • Correcting an uneven or poor skin texture
  • Treating discolored pigmentation
  • Reducing sun damage
  • Addressing minor scars
  • Softening fine lines on the surface of the face or elsewhere on the body
  • Allowing moisturizers and anti-aging serums to penetrate and perform more effectively
  • Providing a smooth foundation for makeup
  • Stimulating collagen for more youthful-looking skin

Remember that there are limitations to what microdermabrasion can address. It’s not a good option for cystic acne, hypertrophic scars, deep acne scars or wrinkles. One of the major advantages of this procedure is that there’s no recovery time and patients can resume their normal activities immediately. Just remember that your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight so you should wear sunscreen and try to limit your sun exposure after you’ve had this treatment.
