Microdermabrasion Victoria BC

Professional Skin Resurfacing

Corrective skin peeling is an excellent way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin and, at the same time, reduce the appearance of your wrinkles, pigmentation, congestion, scars and dehydration, and increase fibroblast activity in your dermis (middle layer of the skin) to generate new growth of healthy skin cells.

There are many ways to resurface the epidermis (upper most layer of the skin) and today's state-of-the-art mechanical and chirally-correct, non-acid peels are enjoyable and relaxing to experience and produce lasting results with little or no down time. However, not all methods are appropriate for all skin types or all ages. This is why at Age Less Laser Centres we customize our treatments so that you get the most exact and beneficial treatment for your particular skin care needs.

Crystal Free Microdermabrasion

Our experienced skin care technicians have found that one of the most successful medical peeling methods is the Crystal Free Microdermabrasion with the P Quantum DiamondTip™ System.

With this technique, we gently abrade your epidermis using a stainless steel tipped wand embedded with laser cut diamond chips. As the diamond chips pass over your skin surface, the uppermost dead skin layer is removed and gently vacuumed away, and the underlying cells are stimulated to produce collagen and healthy new skin cell growth.

The abrasive force of the diamond chips and the power of the vacuum can be adjusted for different degrees of coarseness and suction, according to your comfort and needs, making this a practically pain-free process.

This is a more adaptable and gentle microdermabrasion technique, even at its highest settings, than many other abrasive peeling systems that blast crystals against the skin and leave loose particles that can irritate and provoke an adverse skin reaction.

This technique is excellent for:

  • Reducing slight and fairly moderate fine lines
  • Reducing acne and superficial scars from past injuries
  • Rejuvenating sun damaged skin on the face, shoulders, neck, arms, back and legs
  • Reducing age spots of the face, neck and hands
  • Minimizing hyper pigmentation (blotchy skin colouring)
  • Extracting blackheads and white heads on face or body
  • Treating oily skin
  • Reducing the size of large pores, and
  • Generally improving overall skin health

You will notice the effects almost immediately. At the end of your first treatment your skin will feel soft and appear smoother, more luminous and more youthful. Any slight reddening is a temporary reaction and will fade within half an hour or so. You can resume normal activities straight away after treatment – one of the great advantages of this technique is that it requires NO down time.

At the beginning we usually plan for a series of six sessions spaced three weeks apart. Treatment times are short, relaxing and pain free with practically no recovery time needed. You can apply makeup immediately after each session.

After your first course of treatment, an occasional microdermabrasion every few months will probably be all that you need to maintain your beautiful, radiant skin tone. With additional treatments your skin tone and radiance will continue to improve.

To help prolong the youth-enhancing effects of your microdermabrasion we recommend that you regularly apply moisturizer and always wear sunscreen when going outdoors.

Often, this technique is used in combination with other skin peeling methods. For example, we often recommend microdermabrasion before FotoFacial-RF Skin Rejuvenation and photo pulsation therapy, as removing the uppermost dead skin layers permits the laser light frequencies to penetrate more deeply into the dermis to better stimulate collagen production and enhance healthy new skin cell growth.

Who can benefit most from Microdermabrasion?

Basically, anyone looking to smooth and refresh their appearance could potentially benefit from microdermabrasion.

This treatment is excellent for clients who may have had an adverse reaction to the chemicals used in some skin peeling programs.

At your first consultation, our experienced skin care specialists will advise if microdermabrasion is the best technique for you and design a custom program to suit your particular skin type and needs.

This technique has given excellent results for clients suffering from acne and acne scars, particularly when it has been used in conjunction with targeted vitamin supplements, deep pore cleansing programs, photo pulsation and laser therapy, and collagen induction treatments.

Pregnant women and clients with pacemakers can all safely and comfortably enjoy this non–surgical, non–invasive, skin peeling facial technique.

Other professional skin peeling treatments

We also offer a range of other skin peeling treatments that will:

  • deeply cleanse pores in a non-aggressive manner
  • rejuvenate your dermis
  • increase collagen and new skin cell production
  • allow better penetration of skin corrective nutrients, and
  • decrease hyper pigmentation, wrinkles, skin laxity and pore size.

Ultrasonic Peel and Glow Treatments:

This is an ideal skin peeling method for sensitive, maturing skins, to improve the glow on the neck and décolleté, and for those with rosacea and skin of colour.

This third generation exfoliating technique uses 27,000 Hz of micro vibrating ultrasonic energy to provide the ultimate in non-inflammatory, deep skin cleansing and regeneration. It will gently remove your skin's uppermost superficial layers, rejuvenate your dermis, deep cleanse your pores and improve the look of dehydrated, wrinkled and hyper-pigmented skins by increasing the penetration of serums and other hydrators by up to 85%.

Chirally Correct Rotational Peels:

This is a gentle and effective means of improving the texture and clarity of your skin over six weeks. Depending on age and your skin concerns, a series of these peels should be done two to three times every year. Initially, we will perform this professional peeling treatment once or twice a week to gently resurface skin imperfections. Afterwards, monthly peels will be all that is needed to continue to maintain your skin improvement.

European Deep Herbal Peels:

This two phase treatment protocol uses complex, micro-fine, plant-based, acid-free formulas enriched with algae, herbs, minerals and vitamins, together with specialized application techniques, to gently smooth away your top most layers of skin thus stimulating the production of new skin cells, boosting your blood circulation and enhancing its ability to carry more oxygen.

Within 5-6 days of application, the outermost layers of your skin start to shed, revealing newer and firmer skin. After the 6th day we will perform a second customized treatment to help to completely remove the loosened dead particles and to hydrate and nourish your emerging new skin cells. You will be left with a luminous, youthful glow that will continue to improve after 30 days.

This amazing treatment is very effective at reducing acne pits and scars, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, and stretch marks.

We may further recommend a series of 2-4 treatments at least 30 days apart for maximum and lasting results.
