Microdermabrasion cosmetic treatment in Barrie, OntarioWhat is microdermabrasion Treatment good for?

You can achieve healthy looking skin and reduce the signs of aging by adding microdermabrasion treatments to your regular skin care routine. This cosmetic procedure is a thorough exfoliation (superficial skin removal) that cleans oil, environmental toxins, dirt and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. As a result, the treatment

  • increases blood and lymph fluid circulation
  • evens skin tone (with repeated treatments)
  • smooths texture
  • fade acne scars and reduce enlarged pores
  • stimulates cell regeneration and collagen production

Microdermabrasion procedure will leave your skin feeling fresh and ready to effectively absorb your skin care products increasing the permeability of the skin. It can also temporarily facilitate the absorption of some topical medications.

Preparing for Microdermabrasion Treatment

Microdermabrasion is a very safe procedure, only minimally invasive and it is nonsurgical. Thus, there is not much you need to do to prepare for it.

What you still should do is to consult with the medical aesthetics professional beforehand, to find out if the treatment is right for you. Mention any past cosmetic procedures and surgeries, as well as allergies and medical conditions.

The skin care professional might advice you to avoid waxing and sun exposure for about a week prior to microdermabrasion treatment. You might also have to stop using exfoliating products three days before the treatment.

Probably no need to mention, but you shouldn’t wear make-up when the procedure begins.
