Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment designed to remove the upper layers of damaged and dying skin cells, which tend to give your skin an overall dull appearance and betray signs of sun damage.* In addition to general exfoliation of the skin, Mississauga Medical Clinic can use this treatment to target specific problems like dark spots on face, acne scars.

After the top layer of skin cells has been removed, the skin should look more radiant and should feel refreshed. Further, many of our clients find that the need to use large quantities of makeup decreases with improved texture and elimination of skin imperfections. This decrease in makeup use after regular treatments allows the pores to “breathe” better, and promotes better long term skin health.


How Microdermabrasion Works

Microdermabrasion is a term used to describe a number of different procedures which exfoliate the skin. During this procedure, the top layer of the epidermis is removed.* Your dead skin cells are subsequently vacuumed up, revealing healthy skin. The whole procedure is quick and painless, generally taking 30-45 minutes, depending on your unique situation. To better understand this procedure, let’s look at two main types of Microdermabrasion: crystal-based and non-crystal.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peel is the application of a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin, which can help improve texture and reveal smoother, clearer, radiant skin. All peels can help treat areas on the face, and most peels can also treat the neck and hands. Chemical peel is primarily used for cosmetic reasons, but in some cases, treatment is done on pre-cancerous skin growth and melasma (a skin condition characterized by irregularly shaped patches of brown skin commonly found on the face and neck). 

Is Chemical Peel the Right Procedure for You?

Chemical peel treatments can be customized for each patient. Chemical peels can help treat fine, medium and course wrinkles and lines, various blemishes, freckles, certain sun damage, age spots, and pre-cancerous growth. In some cases, chemical peels may even control acne and soften scars caused by acne. Chemical peel is not permanent nor will it slow down the aging process. Though chemical peel may reduce the amount of visible wrinkles and fine lines, it should not be looked at as a substitution for facelift surgery. Because chemical peels are uniquely customized for each patient based on skin condition and desired result, consultation with a doctor will provide more detailed answers to your individual questions.
