Microdermabrasion, with the advanced Vibradermabrasion system, is a clinically proven, next-generation skin-renewal technique that effectively exfoliates and polishes the surface of the skin. A patented vibrating surface gently removes layers of damaged tissue and debris, promoting natural collagen regeneration.
In a series of treatments of our Ottawa microdermabrasion, an improvement in skin tone and texture is achieved, resulting in a healthier, more radiant appearance for facial skin. An initial series of five treatments is recommended for new patients.
This advanced treatment is similar to traditional microdermabrasion, but produces superior results, with less skin irritation. It has the added benefit of providing a mild-to-moderate peel, performed mechanically. While microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin with a flow of microscopic crystals, the vibradermabrasion system uses “paddles” with fine abrasive particles that vibrate at high speed to dislodge the top cells so fresh, new skin cells are produces for firmer, glowing, evenly-toned skin.
If you are ready to restore a more glowing, fresh, even-toned look to your face, these treatments have proven to be very effective. The first step is to determine how many treatments will be needed, as a series of treatments produces a cumulative effect.
When you come to Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic for vibradermabrasion, your facial skin will under the care of Dr. Vassiliou, a highly-respected skincare specialist. Her trained esthetician will perform the treatment with meticulous care. Dr. Vassiliou’s ability to create dramatic improvements in skin quality has led to a reputation for producing subtle, natural-looking results with some of the best microdermabrasion Ottawa has to offer.
The treatment takes only about 15 to 20 minutes to complete and involves no pain or discomfort. The vibrating paddles are moved lightly across your skin, with the high-speed vibration removing the dead cells on the surface, and stimulating the skin to produce fresh, new cells.
The treatment does not involve recovery time; the only side effect some patients may experience is a slight skin reddening and sun sensitivity. You do not need to plan days off work – you are free to return to your usual activities once the treatment is completed.
We use the Vibraderm system for microdermabrasion, as it is gentler than traditional microdermabrasion, and produces excellent results, smoothing the skin, and creating a more even tone, with results that improve, day by day, as your skin moves into the regenerative process.
After your vibraderm treatment, it is important that you carefully follow all aftercare instructions. Do not apply any harsh products, including retinoids, glycolic, or AHA products for at least 48 hours prior to or following treatment, including any creams, serums or moisturizers that contain these ingredients.
After your treatment, gently cleanse and moisturize your skin. We can guide you to the products that will be gentle on your skin. Apply sunscreen every day after treatment and avoid being exposed to the sun for several days after treatment.
Some patients experience slight redness or swelling, which typically disappears within an hour or so. Some people have particularly sensitive facial skin, and redness and swelling could persist slightly longer, although this side effect is rare.
Some patients have a sensation of tightness on the facial skin, while some rare patients experience moderate skin peeling a few days after the treatment.
The patented paddle used in treatment vibrates to gently remove the top layer of your skin. This treatment has a regenerative effect, triggering the natural healing processes of the body. The surface skin is now more permeable, and specific serums or other products can be applied to restore and rejuvenate your skin. Your treatment will be tailored to your needs, and the skin issues that require treatment. Contact us today to schedule your appointment to receive one the best microdermabrasion Ottawa has to offer.
This treatment is designed to improve the texture and tone of the skin.
Vibradermabrasion/Microdermabrasion in some instances creates immediate results after just one treatment and in as few as three, initiates the creation of new collagen, leaving the skin more beautiful and vibrant each time. Results may vary for each patient.
Microdermabrasian uses tiny crystals that essentially “sandblast” off the skin’s surface, and then suctioning off the debris. This process can be very irritating to the skin. The Vibraderm system does not involve crystals or suction and is gentler on the skin (and on the respiratory tract of the patient if an older, outdated microdermabrasion system is used). A gentle approach is simply better for your skin, causing less trauma while producing excellent results.
The beauty of this system is that it can treat all body areas, from face to feet, and larger areas can be treated simply, quickly, and effectively.
