When your skin isn’t at its best it’s asking for a little R&R. Unclog those pores and polish away dead skin cells with our soothing, non-invasive Vancouver microdermabrasion facial. Using gentle, physical exfoliation with tiny diamond granules and suction, we remove only the very top layer of damaged skin to reveal a younger, smoother, cleaner complexion. You’ll look so fresh you may even dare to go bare.
Brings skin to life!
The procedure, which you can combine with other anti-aging treatments for maximum results, reduces imperfections and promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells. It does this in two steps. First, the abrasive action sloughs off dead skin cells, which do a number on your complexion when they accumulate. Then, the suction portion stimulates circulation and promotes collagen and elastin production to give skin back it’s bounce and suppleness.
Unlike some more invasive facial resurfacing treatments, microdermabrasion is limited to the epidermis, or top layer of skin, for an instant refresh and an immediate improvement in tone and texture with no downtime or pain.
Microdermabrasion can be used to treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Acne and blemishes
- Dull and congested skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Enlarged pores
How to Exfoliate Your Skin?
How does microdermabrasion work?
A: Microdermabrasion is a painless, non-invasive procedure that involves mechanical exfoliation. It feels a little like having your skin gently vacuumed. It works in two ways:
- Correction: The diamond tone tip creates an abrasive action that gently removes the damaged surface layer of the skin. Smoother, fresher skin emerges.
- Stimulation: Vacuum action stimulates microcirculation, which increases the production of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity.
Are there any after-care recommendations for microdermabrasion?
A: Use moisturizer and wear sunscreen (at least SPF 30) at all times. We carry physician-grade moisturizing products and sunscreen at NuAGE for you to purchase, along with our fantastic Micro-Peel exfoliant to help you maintain your look for an even longer period of time. Your skin care specialist will give you detailed after-care instructions.
Who can benefit from a microdermabrasion treatment?
A: Microdermabrasion doesn’t discriminate! Men and women with any skin type or color can benefit. If you have acne-prone, congested, aging, dull, blotchy, rough or sun damaged skin, you’ll love the rejuvenated, refreshed look that comes from microdermabrasion treatment.
How many microdermabrasion treatments are required?
A: While you’ll notice a healthy glow after one treatment, a series of treatments may be necessary for optimal results. Your skin needs are as individual as you are. Therefore, you’ll want to talk to your NuAGE skin care specialist to determine the appropriate course of action. Each treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour depending on your goals. Many clients continue with occasional follow up sessions to maintain their flawless new complexion.
Is there downtime after a microdermabrasion treatment?
A: One of the many reasons microdermabrasion is near and dear to our hearts, is there is no downtime. Clients can immediately return to their daily routine after treatment.
Why do microdermabrasion?
A: Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form, they push their way to the surface. Unfortunately, as we age this process slows down and skin appears older and less radiant. Microdermabrasion will speed things up leaving your skin looking youthful, clear and fresh.
