Frequently Asked Questions
Is there any downtime for this treatment?
There is no downtime for this treatment. However, for clients that have sensitive skin or more reactive skin types, there may be a pink hue to their skin post-treatment. Any treatment that stimulates the skin may cause irritation.
What should I do with my skin post-treatment?
We recommend the use of sunscreen post-treatment, regardless of the time of year, as harmful UV rays are present even during the winter months. UV rays are also present with the use of technology such as cell phones, computer screens and televisions. Our Medical Aestheticians and Front Desk staff can assist in choosing the sunscreen best suited for you as we have an array of options to choose from.
Do you use tools for extractions?
At Skinprovement Medi Spa & Laser Clinic, we do not use tools or other technologies for extractions as the ones on the market are NOT Health Canada Approved. Some of these tools can cause damage to the skin resulting in scarring, bruising, capillary damage. It can also drive bacteria deeper into the skin, causing breakouts.
Do you use steam with your treatment?
Believe it or not, the use of steam can irritate the skin, cause dehydration, and is not suitable for anyone with asthma. Due to the nature of the treatment, with the inclusion of dermaplaning or other exfoliants, the use of steam can be aggressive. We make use of hot towels to soften the pores prior to extractions.
What do I need to do before this treatment?
Thankfully nothing. Just be sure to stop by 15 minutes prior to your treatment if you are new to the clinic, as the Front Desk Coordinator will ask you to fill in some information. Leave the rest to us!
