Kelowna's Dedicated Anti-Aging Facility
Expertise and Caring in Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine.
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.
