Microdermabrasion in Ottawa, Ontario is a minimally invasive facial resurfacing technique. Ottawa Plastic Surgery performs these procedures as a series of six to eight 30-minute office treatments, designed to smooth out irregularities in your facial skin, reduce uneven pigmentation, and enhance your skin's natural texture and glow. Your face's tone and texture will improve after a microdermabrasion treatment because your body continues to generate healthier skin to replace the dead skin cells.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that exfoliates facial skin. This procedure can minimize and smooth out:
- Superficial Wrinkles
- Age Spots
- Superficial Acne Scars
- Stretch Marks
- Uneven Skin
To begin the microdermabrasion treatment, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly. During the 30-minute procedure, the outer layer of skin will then be exfoliated.
Some patients experience a slight sensitivity for the first 24 hours after microdermabrasion. However, because care is taken to avoid penetrating below the skin's surface, patients typically recover quickly. Most patients' skin types are suitable for the treatment, and they are pleased with the revitalized results, which are cumulative. By using additional skin care products, patients can enhance and prolong these results. Dr. Silverman or Dr. Boyd and our aesthetic team will evaluate your skin type during initial consultation to determine the most effective regimen for you.
