THE PROCEDURE

Our Procedure

Dermaglide medical-grade microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation treatment that is effective on all skin types and delivers exceptional anti-ageing results. The Dermaglide procedure can improve or eliminate superficial skin problems and is also effective for the treatment of mild to moderate acne. Microdermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive method of skin exfoliation that revitalizes the skin, erases fine lines and wrinkles, and reduces large pores, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks and age spots.

The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, acts as the skin’s primary defence against the environment and sustains the most damage from the sun. Over time, factors such as ageing, genetics, sun damage, acne, acne scarring, and enlarged pores can contribute to rough skin texture.  The Dermaglide microdermabrasion system is the most natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin. The face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, arms and hands can be treated effectively.  This all natural skin rejuvenation procedure stimulates collagen production that can further improve skin texture.

A fine spray of specially formulated baking soda crystals are propelled at a high rate of speed across the skin’s surface to efficiently abrade and exfoliate the skin, while vacuum suction removes the crystals and the dead skin cells.   The vacuum action helps to stimulate and boost micro-circulation by increasing the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration.  It also strengthens blood vessels and stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin to improve your skin texture and elasticity.  This combination of exfoliation and increased blood flow leaves you with healthier, smoother and more radiant skin. Dermaglide microdermabrasion is one of the safest skin rejuvenation procedures available. The treatment is virtually painless and there are no side effects.

A series of Dermaglide treatments can produce exceptional anti-aging results!

What skin conditions are at risk and should not be treated for microdermabrasion?

While the actual technique of microdermabrasion is not difficult to learn, the difficulty lies in the use of prudent common sense and an understanding of which patients/clients are suitable for treatment.

Contraindications

A contraindication is a condition or factor which makes a particular treatment or procedure inadvisable, due to risk.

Contraindications for Microdermabrasion

  • Active infection, open wound
  • Use of isotretinoin within last 6 months
  • Patient on blood thinner medication
  • Recent use of Retin-A
  • Raised moles, warts, skin tags
  • Viral lesions, Herpes Simplex 1, Shingles
  • Eczema, Psoriasis
  • Extreme Telangiectasia
  • Skin Cancer
  • Lupus
  • Rosacea

Vasodilatation disorders such as rosacea should be resolved before attempting microdermabrasion. Many companies suggest an ability to treat inflammatory disorders with microdermabrasion, but in our experience, this will only aggravate these conditions.

Is microdermabrasion safe for all skin types?

Dermaglide medical-grade microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types, particularly Asian, Hispanic and African American.  There is no risk for skin discoloration and the procedure restores these skin types to a more youthful radiant appearance. Dark skin can be sensitive to certain resurfacing treatments. Techniques such as dermabrasion, chemical peels and laser resurfacing could cause possible damage for darker skin tones because these procedures go deeper into the dermis.

What should the patient/client experience after treatment?

The patient’s skin may feel tight as if it had been exposed to sun or wind. The skin should be well moisturized and then apply a strong sunscreen, 30 SPF or higher. Some patients may develop slight redness, especially after a deeper intense treatment, however this redness should disappear within several hours.
