Diamond Micro-dermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive resurfacing treatment that removes the dull, rough, outer most layer of the skin using a diamond tipped wand to reveal more supple, vibrant skin underneath. The wand is quickly moved over the surface of the skin, using suction that gently draws up dead skin thus aiding in the exfoliation of the skin.
We are one of the few skincare clinics in Vancouver to offer Microdermbrasion together with LED Light – the light can be programmed to the colour best suited to your skin. Each colour does something different; the most popular are red for anti-aging (think collagen and elastin stimulation) and blue for acne. The wand provides for a two in one treatment!
Micro-dermabrasion will assist in cleansing the pores, stimulating collagen production and aids in evening out the skin’s texture and overall tone. It will enhance the skin’s absorptive abilities and maximize the beneficial effects of other professional skin care services, making it an excellent service to have performed before many other treatments. Micro-dermabrasion can be performed on the face, neck, upper chest, hands, shoulders, back, arms and legs.
