MICRODERMABRASION

How long does the treatment take?

A treatment takes 20-30 minutes. You may experience mild tingling for a few hours after a treatment, but you can resume regular activities right away.

 
How many treatments will I need?

You will need a series of 6 microdermabrasions, every 1 to 2 weeks. Maintenance sessions can always be done before a special event.

 
What kind of results should I expect?

Your skin will look and feel smoother immediately – this softness can last for weeks, especially if you combine it with recommended anti-aging products and sun protection. However, since it is such a mild treatment, it may not have the same impact as some of the more penetrating treatments such as photorejuvenationor chemical peels.

 

How should I prepare for the treatment?

  1. Make sure your face is completely clean – no moisturizers or makeup, please.
  2. If you’ve had a recent cold sore, please delay your treatment, or speak to us about antiviral medication that can help prevent an outbreak after treatment.
  3. Avoid treatment if you’ve recently had a sunburn or a skin infection.
  4. Avoid aspirin, green tea or herbal medications, as they may cause bruising to occur.
