With age, fine cheek lines only get worse, just like pigment irregularities and enlarged, clogged pores. Want to do something about it? Check out Microdermabrasion!
Call Wellsprings Medical at 905-780-6627 to book a consultation for a microdermabrasion.
Virtually painless, Microdermabrasion leaves little or no redness after treatment, restoring your skin's youthfulness and resilience in less than an hour. It is so gentle that, in fact, Microdermabrasion does not interfere with many other types of skin treatments!
Microdermabrasion at Wellsprings Medical mechanically peels fine layers of skin, removing all grime and dead cells that thrive on the skin's top layer. The growth of new cells both in the deepest layer and collagen occurs. However, many patients find that several of the traditional methods of microdermabrasion, involving drug therapies and chemical to laser techniques, are not suitable for their skin type.
Microdermabrasion at Wellsprings Medical is the result of the collective experience of international leaders in skin care and general physicians, combined with advanced engineering technology.
Microdermabrasion is a patented dual control system with an adjustable applicator head, with vacuum and crystal projection controls to customize a microdermabrasion procedure to the individual patient. Extremely fine diamond shaped crystals are delivered onto the skin by the device in a steady, effective stream. The Microdermabrasion System also micro massages beneath the skin to stimulate blood circulation and the lymph, as well as to promote oxygenation of skin cells.
As with many other treatments, the best results are achieved when a series of microdermabrasion procedures are scheduled. The removal of varying depths of epidermal layers in this safe and controlled manner will enhance the dramatic long term results of microdermabrasion at Wellsprings Medical.

What problems can be targeted by Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is suitable for men and women who have discolourations, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, or enlarged clogged pores on the skin. Microdermabrasion gently removes the dirt, grime and dead skin cells which suffocate the top layers of the skin, thereby revealing the smooth and even complexion underneath. The area that is most often treated is the face, however the neck, chest, hands, back and feet can also be targeted effectively.
With a series of sessions, the procedure may also reduce oily or dry skin.
What problems cannot be targeted by Microdermabrasion? Deep wrinkles, some scars, and birthmarks cannot be treated. Tattoos also cannot be treated. To remove tattoos, a more effective procedure is available known as Laser Tattoo Removal.
Tell me more about Microdermabrasion at Wellsprings Medical. Wellsprings Medical features the revolutionary Diamond Dermabrasion™ system. This patented device utilizes an adjustable applicator head, with vacuum and fine crystal projection controls to customize treatment to the individual patient. Extremely fine diamond shaped crystals are delivered by the device in a steady, effective stream to gently peel fine layers of the uppermost part of the skin. The device also micro massages beneath the skin to stimulate blood circulation and the lymph, as well as to promote oxygenation of skin cells. As a result, not only are dirt and dead skin cells removed, the growth of new cells as well as collagen are facilitated.
Who is a good candidate? Men and women alike may experience the skin rejuvenating properties of Microdermabrasion. All skin types and shades may be treated effectively. Microdermabrasion is great for anyone whose skin is thick and dull, or plagued with blemishes or clogged pores. Any shade of skin can be treated.
However, women should undergo treatment after their menstrual cycle, when their skin is less sensitive. Consult a medical professional to ensure Microdermabrasion is appropriate for your skin and the problem you’d like treated.
Who is not a good candidate for Microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion is not designed to treat moles or warts. Those with autoimmune disorders, active Rosacea and are experiencing a herpes outbreak cannot be treated as well. Microdermabrasion is not suitable when used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenating techniques, such as laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels.
Tell me more about the procedure. After the skin is cleaned, the Diamond Dermabrasion™ device is used in the desired area. Then, the skin is treated with a calming toner and cream. The entire procedure lasts under an hour, depending on the number of areas requiring correction. Sessions for most patients last about 30-45 minutes. Following treatment, the skin is sensitive to sun exposure. As a result, a sunblock is also applied to protect the skin.
How is recovery like? After the procedure, your skin will be sensitive to touch and sun exposure. It may also feel tight. The treated area will be smoother, the complexion more even-toned. Although the skin will be sensitive, you may return to work immediately afterwards. Your medical aesthetician may recommend skincare products to assist in recovery.
Do not exfoliate the treated area a few days following the procedure, use a good sunblock (or wear protective clothing) and be gentle when cleansing. Some degree of flaking may occur. Excessive perspiration may irritate the treated area.
I highly recommend Wellsprings Medical & her staff. She took the time to explain *everything* to me and was so kind and answered all of my questions both before the treatment and after. And yes, the IPL worked out great & was totally worth it...I'll be back! Also, if you are considering IPL this is a great place to go -- Wellspring Medical is awesome.
