What is Mircodermabrasion?
Micrdermabrasion is the controlled abrasion of the upper most layer of skin (the dermis) to achieve a healthy, more vibrant, clear complexion. It a similar way to sand paper, it wears away the dermis painlessly. It is used to smooth the skin; exfoliate dead skin; allows make up to be applied smoother; and diminish the appearance of shallow acne scars, superficial hyperpigmentation. By exfoliating the dead skin, it allows your products to penetrate 50% more effictively and deeper into your skin. Moisturizing and using good skin care is essential after having a treatment done. Your skin is also sensitive to the sun immediately post treatment, thus sunscreen of SPF30 or higher is mandatory.
Microdermabrasions are non aggressive. They are slow and progessive, gradually exfoliating one area of the face at a time. It can be relaxing and soothing. There may be slight tugging and manipulating of the skin. After the exfoliating part, we infuse the skin with a concentrated serum customized to your skin.

At Guelph Medical Laser, we use the DermaSweep – a revolutionary particle-free microdermabrasion. Gentle vacuum action lifts the surface of the skin as the DermaSweep wand “sweeps away” dead skin cells with in a precise and effective manner.The skin is left smoother as the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow, cleans the pores and removes skin debris into a HEPA filter. The increased blood flow to the skin’s surface encourages collagen formation thus firming and toning the epidermis as well.
