It’s that time of year again in Vancouver. We can finally poke our heads out from under the umbrellas and see the promise of spring and summer coming our way.

All the buds are opening and we feel a renewed energy building around us.

Wouldn’t it be great to feel that same sense of renewed energy in your skin as well? A Microdermabrasion Kitsilano treatment will give you that dewy fresh look and The Gentle Touch is the best place to help get you looking your best this spring.

Microdermabrasion is great for:

  1. Removing dead skin cells (remove that dead, winter layer)
  2. Boosting collagen production (oh yeah, we can all use a boost)
  3. Giving your skin a natural, healthy glow (who doesn’t want that?)
  4. Treating low-grade skin concerns (helps with acne scars and sun damage)
  5. Lasting changes in your appearance with regular treatments (book your sessions now and spring into your fresh look).

Microdermabrasion involves removing the damaged outer layer of skin to reveal the healthy complexion hiding underneath.

It’s an effective, non-surgical way to address many common skin issues – including fine lines, large pores, acne scarring, wrinkles and more.

For Microdermabrasion Kitsilano, we use the “NewApeel” https://www.altairinstruments.com/products/newapeel/, system which gently polishes the target area with natural diamond chips. A vacuum then suctions away dead skin cells, dirt and oil, encouraging the growth of fresh collagen while simultaneously revealing a smoother and brighter appearance.

The spray of microcrystals removes the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells to reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. This treatment also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance.

We are one of the few TAPEBC-certified electrolysis clinics in Vancouver. We offer treatment to both men and women, we have flexible weekend and evening hours and have an online booking system for your convenience. Our cost for microdermabrasion is $40 per session or 3/$99 (regularly $130/session).
