Everything You Need To Know About Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion Calgary

Gone are the days when patients had to go under the knife to help counteract the effects of time and gravity on their skin.

With technology for cosmetic procedures advancing everyday, there is a growing shift towards non-invasive anti aging treatments such as microdermabrasion, which target most problem areas with little downtime and almost immediate effects.

The modern treatments available at Perfexion skin clinic deliver beautiful results that allow you to still look like yourself - just a few years younger.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing procedure that exfoliates away the epidermis (top layer of the skin), removing a number of aging concerns including fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, to reveal fresh skin underneath.

Microdermabrasion is becoming a popular alternative to Botox injections as it can produce better results with fewer side effects and works by stimulating the production of new skin cells and collagen for long-term benefits to your skin.

When to Consider Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion gently polishes away the top layer of dead skin cells while stimulating collagen growth to reveal healthy, new skin that looks and feels much smoother.

It can be used to treat a number of aging concerns including:

  • Uneven skin tone and dull complexion
  • Clogged pores that often cause whiteheads or blackheads
  • Age spots and other sun damage
  • Unwanted facial lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars

Based on your specific aesthetic goals, physical characteristics and the effects you want to see from microdermabrasion, the specialists at our skin care clinic will help tailor your treatment to give you the best anti-aging results possible.

Diamond vs Crystal Microdermabrasion

At Perfexion Skin Clinic, we offer our patients the advanced NewApeel Aesthetic Exfoliation which uses diamond chips instead of the more traditional crystals.

Diamond microdermabrasion offers smoother, refined skin and a more precise treatment and can safely treat sensitive areas such as under the eyes and lips as it doesn’t contaminate you or the environment.

Some of the benefits of diamond microdermabrasion include:

  • Works for all skin types and skin conditions
  • Diamond microdermabrasion has no side effects such as skin irritation or redness
  • Allows user to focus on certain areas that require more attention
  • Pain-free with long-lasting, effective results
