Vibradermabrasion is the latest in skincare technology. It is an effective and clinically proven topical skin treatment, utilizing a rapidly vibrating sterile paddle to remove layers of damaged skin tissue; leaving healthier and more radiant skin.

Vibradermabrasion is the new way to do microdermabrasion. The process is fast, very comfortable for patients and produces exceptional results. 75-85% of the stratum corneum (top layer of non-living skin cells) is removed in minutes.

Dr. Christine uses Vibradermabrasion to treat:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Fine lines/wrinkles
  • Superficial age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation/Melasma
  • Acne prone skin/oily skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scarring
  • Blackheads/Whiteheads (Comedones)
  • Poor skin texture/dull skin

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICRODERMABRASION AND VIBRADERMABRASION?

Unlike traditional microdermabrasion, Vibraderm does not sandblast aluminum oxide crystals over the skin. Instead, a Vibraderm machine consists of paddles covered in abrasive particles. During the treatment, the Vibraderm paddles vibrate over the skin at extremely high speeds, exfoliating the top layer of skin and stimulating collagen growth.

Unlike other skin rejuvenation treatments, Vibraderm is safe enough for use on your entire body. It is arguably the fastest, most comfortable alternative to microdermabrasion available. Many patients prefer Vibraderm simply for its lack of post-treatment redness.

Vibraderm is similar to microdermabrasion in that it is also a mild-to-moderate mechanical peel. Both of these methods primarily affect the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis). The difference is in the technical details of peeling. Microdermabrasion produces exfoliation using a flow of microscopic crystals whereas vibradermabrasion employs paddles covered with fine abrasive particles. The paddles vibrate at a very high speed, causing the abrasive particles to dislodge the topmost skin cells.

Similarly to microdermabrasion, Vibraderm is generally believed to be the most effective for early signs of aging and minor skin lesions. In particular, Vibraderm is often recommended for mild acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, poor skin texture, fine lines and dull skin.  Vibraderm tends to cause less skin irritation than traditional microdermabrasion.

HOW LONG DOES A VIBRADERMABRASION TREATMENT TAKE?

Treatments typically take less than 30 minutes to perform and require virtually no downtime. This makes Vibraderm easy to fit into busy schedules and ensures that people can get back to their active lifestyles. Sometimes a temporary redness will be visible for up to one hour after treatment.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Each patient’s needs and aesthetic goals are unique. Dr. Christine offers complimentary consultation to determine how many treatments would be required to reach your desired outcome. You will immediately notice a textural difference and a glowing quality to your skin’s appearance, however multiple treatments will be required to address hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and reduction of fine lines.
