Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that uses a tiny crystals or a sterile diamond head to peel and exfoliate dead skin cells at the top layer of the skin, followed by a vacuum. The treatment removes any dead skin, dirt and particles from the surface and improves your skin’s texture and softness, as well as minimizes imperfections such as wrinkles and acne scars. Patients who benefit the most from microdermabrasion treatment at our Tsawwassen, BC clinic are those with fine lines, uneven pigmentation and/or clogged pores.

How Microdermabrasion Works
Your microdermabrasion treatment at Roberts Dental & Facial Rejuvenation in South Delta, BC will begin with your technician cleansing your skin to remove any excess oil and dirt. Using a small hand-held device, a stream of aluminum oxide crystals is then passed over the area. Tiny crystals exfoliate old, dead skin cells, which the vacuum then picks up with the gentle suction. This promotes the growth of collagen and new, rejuvenated skin. Your treatment will be completed with your technician applying a moisturizer and/or sun block chosen specifically for your skin type. Treatment generally takes approximately 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area, and is recommended every 4-8 weeks. Studies have suggested that regular microdermabrasion treatments may influence the way the lower layers of skin grow, as well, removing deeper blemishes over time.
