Microdermabrasion

The Bay Dermatology Centre offers a full range of patient-centered procedures.

The Ultrapeel microdermabrasion is simply a better way to healthier skin.

The Ultrapeel Microdermabrasion is a simple convenient procedure used in patients with early signs of ageing and sun damage. Those with minimal superficial scarring and hyperpigmentation can also benefit. It is non-invasive procedure with no discomfort or recovery time.
The Ultrapeel microdermabrasion systems are the most popular microdermabrasion devices among doctors and skin specialists. Microdermabrasion uses aluminum microcrystals to perform progressive abrasion of the skin. The crystals, called corundum, gently polish the skin.
A sterile handpiece is attached to a tubing system through which corundum crystals are propelled at a high speed across the skin’s surface, thus gently abrading the top layer of skin. The used crystals and dead cells are then vacuumed.

The final result is smooth, healthy, and glowing skin!

The most commonly treated areas include the face, chest, shoulders, back and hands. One Microdermabrasion session is roughly equal to three 30% glycolic acid peels or one 70% peel.
These treatments are meant to be progressive and not aggressive. Results are seen after the 3rd treatment. Treatments are performed every several weeks usually in a series. Microdermabrasion is helpful to perform 7 to 10 days before IPL( photo rejuvenation) treatments to enhance the IPL results.

Microdermabrasion will take 15 to 40 minutes depending on the area being treated. The procedure is applied to clean skin. Sunscreen SPF 30 or higher is applied immediately after and should be used for several days after.

There is minimal to no discomfort but some patients may experience a slightly tingling afterward. Rarely the skin may appear slightly red which lasts 12 to 24 hours. It is important not to exercise immediately after Microdermabrasion because perspiration will cause a stinging sensation that can last several hours.

Patients who undergo Microdermabrasion should discontinue vitamin A/retinol and glycolic acid creams one week before. These can be 3 days after the procedure.
Benefits of microdermabrasion include:

– Excellent solution for age spots, sun damage, scars, blackhead, and congested pores.
– Improves overall skin health
– It is gentler than other systems, yet achieves more dramatic results
– No adverse side effects
– Precise instruments ensure uniform results
