Microdermabrasion Facials: What's all the fuss about?

on Friday, 23 May 2014. Posted in Dermaspa Blog

Did you know that Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in North America?  What is all the fuss about?  We get many questions about microdermabrasion so this has spurred us to talk about it here....

Frequently Asked Questions About Microdermabrasion:

1. What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment that is very much like a facial - but with deeper and longer lasting results.  This treatment exfoliates your skin, removing dead skin cells, surface imperfections (acne scars, pigmentation, fine lines, sun spots) and smoothing your skin.  Immediately after treatment your skin feels smooth, looks more even, radiant and glowy!  Blackheads and whiteheads are removed, pores are minimized and no squeezing or extractions are required.  The results last longer than a simple facial, because the process exfoliates, cleanses and refines your skin on a deeper level.

What's better: Diamond Microdermabrasion or Crystal Microdermabrasion?

There are two types of microdermabrasion mainly:  Crystal microdermabrasion and Diamond Microdermabrasion.  In crystal microdermabrasion, the original version of microdermabrasion, fine crystals such as Aluminum Oxide crystals, are blasted over the skin, to smooth the skin surface by exfoliation.  Though this treatment can refine your skin, the crystals can cause skin irritations, allergy, and be harmful to inhale.  For this reason, Diamond Microdermabrasion was invented.

The newer and more advanced version is Diamond Microdermabrasion.  This method does not use crystals but rather uses diamond tips to exfoliate your skin.  No crystals will be inhaled and no aluminum oxide is used in Diamond Microdermabrasion.  Also we can use different levels of exfoliation with Diamond Microdermabrasion, making it possible to customize the treatment to your skin type, and the area of treatment.  We have an amazing tip for around the eyes, and corners of the nose.  It is gentle yet effective on fine lines and blackheads.

How much does Diamond Microdermabrasion cost?

In general, the price of diamond microdermabrasion treatments by experienced medical estheticians ranges from $125-$150.  At Dermaspa one treatment is $135, but if you purchase a package of treatments you can get significant savings (ie $100 per treatment).

In general, Microdermabrasion is helpful for most skin types except the most sensitive.  Even somewhat sensitive skin types can have diamond microdermabrasion, as this treatment can be customized to your skin type, and to different zones of your face.  We have from sensitive to powerful treatments available due to the various medical diamond microdermabrasion tips in our state of the art machine.
