MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure which gently resurfaces the skin. Microdermabrasion exfoliation is performed with a diamond tip which brushes the skin's surface with the aid of a gentle vacuum. This action removes dead and damaged cells at the skin's surface. By eliminating these surface cells with microdermabrasion, the skin is left soft and supple while forcing the regeneration of new skin cells.


Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are exfoliation treatments which smooth out upper layers of the skin with the use a chemical or acid. BLC Laser Center offers Skinceuticals professional chemical peels for a various skin concerns.


Glycolic acid (AHA) is an alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane. It exfoliates the skin and contributes to enhanced skin hydration, smoothes fine lines and improves the skin's texture and tone. Glycolic acid peels are great anti-aging treatments that help the skin to regenerate itself. Glycolic acid is a popular chemical peel amongst young adults and those who want to brighten the skin.


Salicylic chemical peels are often used to control breakout prone skins. Salicylic acid (BHA) is a beta hydroxy acid which is an oil soluble solution derived from willow bark, wintergreen leaves and birch bark. This chemical peel helps oily prone skins by dissolving bacteria. Salicylic acid peels also promote cutaneous shedding as well as dissolving black-heads and white-heads. Salicylic chemical peels are also popular for mature skins who want to regenerate the skin on a deeper level than what is typically achieved with microdermabrasion treatment or glycolic peels. By stimulating cutaneous shedding, we are able to exfoliate the deep layers of the skin which improves fine lines, pigmentation and wrinkles. Salicylic chemical peels are safe for all skin types.


Depending on the condition of your skin, our skin therapists may advise multiple treatments and/or combining microdermabrasion with Chemical peels, Photo Rejuvenation, and Laser Facial treatments for optimal results.

Microdermabrasion FAQs

Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance. If the skin does not shed properly, dead cells settle on the surface causing clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, breakouts and a dull appearance.
Men and women of any skin type or colour. Anyone with aged, congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull and sun damaged skin will experience a rejuvenated and refreshed complexion. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture will also be improved.
The actual treatment usually takes 15-40 minutes, depending on the area. The treatment is applied after cleansing the skin and a moisturizing sun block is applied following treatment.
Both microdermabrasion and chemical peels exfoliate the skin however they do so by different means. Microdermabrasion removes the top layer with the use of a diamond tip that brushes the skin. Chemical peels are exfoliating the skin as well with the use of a acid such as glycolic, salicyclic or a peel blend which penetrates different depths of the skin. For someone who wants a light skin exfoliation without excessive skin peeling, microdermabrasion is a great option.
