Microdermabrasion: A soft-filter for your close-ups
Are you looking for a non-surgical way to freshen and rejuvenate the skin on your face?
Avenue Skin Care in Toronto is well known for its highly effective programs of Microdermabrasion, a kinder gentler version of dermabrasion. The microdermabrasion instrument is minimally abrasive; it gently removes the coarser outer layer. This mode of skin therapy treats light scarring, sun damage, and discoloration—even stretch marks.
Picture a delicate sand blaster and you'll understand how microdermabrasion works. It uses micro-particles or a diamond-tipped wand, to slough off the epidermis [top layer] of your skin and prompt fresh skin growth.
Toronto patients report a visible improvement in the skin’s texture following microdermabrasion, as the process regenerates collagen. Collagen is a protein in the skin that's plentiful in our youth, and gives the skin its elasticity and density. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
There is almost no discomfort in microdermabrasion, meaning you won't need a topical or local anesthetic and there is no recovery or downtime.

What exactly happens during Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion treatments involves a hand-held instrument that streams tiny crystals on your skin. A vacuum suctions the polishing crystals back into the machine, along with the dead or loosened skin.
Microdermabrasion treatments are not lengthy, approximately a half hour. Toronto microdermabrasion patients report a mild scruffing sensation similar to exfoliating with a fine-grained scrub, as the treatment device removes the coarsest top layer of skin cells.
Afterwards, your Avenue Skin Care therapist may recommend a specialized moisturizer or facial product to enhance and prolong your result. But there is no down time or recovery period.
