Are you seeking a painless and effective microdermabrasion treatment?

Elysium Beauty in Toronto can help!

Microdermabrasion is the least invasive, most gentle exfoliating procedure in the world of Skin Rejuvenation treatments – with the added benefit of no down-time during recovery. The treatment itself resurfaces facial derma, polishes and smooths the skin, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and addresses chronic conditions such as Rosacea. The treatment is not only readily effective, but painless and safe as well. Microdermabrasion is an ideal addition or enhancement to other treatments, but may also be performed on its own.

Microdermabrasion Procedure

There are a number of treatments that can be completed in combination with Microdermabrasion, including facial, chemical peel or photo rejuvenation. It may be safely performed on many areas, including the face, neck, chest, back, legs and arms. It utilizes a diamond head, which promotes functional removal of the top layer of the skin. Additionally, it exfoliates dead skin cells that clog the pores, resulting in blackheads, pimples and other facial imperfections. The treatment is useful for those of any age; whether the individual is a teenager with problem break-outs, or an adult who wants to reduce obvious signs of aging.

Treatment Procedures and Frequency

A Microdermabrasion treatment begins with a deep cleanse and exfoliation; and ends with a soothing personalized mask. The procedure should be performed at least once every 3-4 weeks, in order to improve or maintain the condition of the skin. For clients with busy schedules, we offer a 30-minute Express Microdermabrasion treatment, which is ideal for the lunch hour. It elicits an instant glow, a smoother look, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Preparation for Microdermabrasion Treatment

For an optimized outcome, it is important to follow the specified safety precautions that will be provided to you, prior to treatment. It is necessary to stop the use of Accutane for 3 months prior to treatment, and to refrain from using Retin-A at least a week preceding your appointment. It is also recommended that you avoid sun exposure, tanning bed use and spray tans around the time of your procedure - as well as the use of chemical peels or exfoliants at least one week prior.

After Treatment

Microdermabrasion increases the circulation, which may cause slightly reddened skin for approximately 30 minutes following treatment. Clients are asked to avoid the use of make-up for a few hours after their procedure, as to allow for skin recuperation. Skin will be soft, rejuvenated and glowing immediately after the treatment application. It is important to apply a sunscreen if exposure to sunlight is eminent. We also suggest promoting hydration/healing by drinking plenty of water, and moisturizing the skin consistently. Finally, we recommend avoiding chlorinated swimming pools for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
