Microdermabrasion in Kelowna

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that offers patients a way to smooth and freshen the skin, similar to a spa facial, but more in depth. This treatment can also be used to treat facial scars and signs of aging.


During microdermabrasion, a diamond-tipped wand removes dead skin cells to allow skin care products to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin. The combination of exfoliation and skin care products helps smooth the skin. A microdermabrasion treatment reveals new layers of skin and unclogs pores so skin feels fresh and smooth.


What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive way to correct problems on the surface of your skin. Depending on the depth, scarring or wrinkles are visibly reduced in 5 to 12 sessions. Benefits of microdermabrasion include the following:


  • Softer fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminished age spots
  • Decreased pore size
  • Decreased appearance of scars
  • Smoother skin
  • Increased collagen


You may have mild stinging, swelling or redness after a microdermabrasion session. Both side effects will fade within a few days (if it’s your first time) or within a few hours (if you've had several appointments).


How Do I Prepare for an Appointment?

While microdermabrasion is fast and non-invasive, there are a few things you should do to prepare:


  • Do not wax 5–7 days prior to your appointment
  • Avoid skin care products with fragrance or chemicals
  • Drink plenty of water the day of your appointment
  • Prepare skin based on recommendations from our clinic after you set up your appointment
  • Take a "before" photo to see the improvement
  • Use high-quality sunscreen in the weeks following your appointment
