Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure which gently resurfaces the skin.
Microdermabrasion exfoliation is performed with a diamond tip which brushes the skin's surface with the aid of a gentle vacuum. This action removes dead and damaged cells at the skin's surface. By eliminating these surface cells with microdermabrasion, the skin is left soft and supple while forcing the regeneration of new skin cells. Microdermabrasion at Toronto Medical Aesthetics is combined with a complete facial which includes treatment creams, a mask, high frequency and extractions if necessary.

What to expect when you come for your first appointment:
After a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin may feel tight. Some individuals experience light flaking of the skin, therefore, it is important to use a good moisturizer as advised by our skin therapists. Otherwise there are minimal side effects, which is why microdermabrasion is often described as the lunch hour procedure.
Microdermabrasion facials are usually kept at 2-3 week intervals and maintenance treatments are usually performed once a month. Microdermabrasion treatments are approximately 45 minutes in length.
