The Gilded Pear’s Microdermabrasion for Smooth, Youthful Skin

Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. Many different products and treatments use this method, including medical procedures, salon treatments and creams and scrubs that you apply yourself at home. It’s usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. Before we can understand how microdermabrasion does what it does, it’s important to understand how skin works.

Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. It’s a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers. It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through.

When you put lotions or creams on your skin, some of the moisture passes through the stratum corneum, but not all of it. This layer is home to many minor skin imperfections like fine wrinkle lines and blemishes.

All of the action in microdermabrasion takes place at the level of the stratum corneum. Since it only really targets the epidermis (and not the dermis), it is more accurate to call it micro-epi-dermabrasion. Affecting deeper layers of skin would be painful and harmful, and it would risk permanently embedding the tiny grains into the skin.

This process has a few beneficial effects. With the stratum corneum gone, the skin’s surface is improved. The healing process brings with it newer skin cells that look and feel smoother. Some of the skin’s visible imperfections, like sun damage, blemishes and fine lines, are removed. Also, without the stratum corneum acting as a barrier, medicinal creams and lotions are more effective because more of their active ingredients and moisture can find their way down to the lower layers of skin. As microdermabrasion temporarily removes some moisture from the skin, it is always followed by the application of moisturizing creams.

What is Photo Rejuvenation at The Gilded Pear?

Photo Rejuvenation or photorejuvenation (also known as photofacials) effectively treats red and brown dyschromia/hyperpigmentation and facial telangiectasia while improving the skin’s texture and tone. Our process allows us to accurately target your skin concern revealing visible results in as little as 1-3 treatments spaced at 4 weeks apart. Photorejuvenation is used for a variety of skin concerns and used not only to correct skin imperfections such as freckles and sun spots, but to improve the overall skin complexion.

Photo Rejuvenation effectively treats:

• Facial Telangiectasia
• Rosacea
• Hyperpigmentation
• Age spots/sun spots
• Diffused redness and small facial capillaries
• Uneven skins and dull complexions
• Fine lines and mild scarring
• Overall skin appearance

Immediately following your photofacial, photorejuvenation or photo rejuvenation treatment, brown spots/discolourations will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly pink. This typically lasts a few hours to possibly a few days. During a time span of one to three weeks post your photofacial treatment, the darkened spots will flake off and/or fade and facial capillaries or diffused redness will decrease.

Before beginning photo rejuvenation treatments at The Gilded Pear, we encourage all clients to visit us for a complimentary photo rejuvenation skin consultation. At this time we will analyze your skin and provide recommendations for which treatments are best for you based on your skin’s needs and your personal goals for your skin.

When you come in for your first photo rejuvenation or photorejuvenation treatment, we will begin by cleansing the skin. The face is mapped out or divided in small sections to ensure even coverage. Goggles are placed over the client’s eyes for safety. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin. The photo rejuvenation hand piece is applied to the skin one pulse at a time. You will feel a sharp pinch with every photorejuvenation pulse.

Eminence Organic Skin Care ‘Forests for the Future’ Initiative & The Gilded Pear

Eminence Organic Skin Care has initiated a green factor project called Forests for the Future where every single retail purchase leads to the planting of new trees. As of March 31, 2016, Eminence has planted 5,000,000 as a result of the project and 1,978 of those trees were planted because of The Gilded Pear and our amazing customers. Your purchases of Eminence’s exceptional skincare products mean that we get to help give back to the environment which gives so freely to us.


Read more about the Forests for the Future initiative below:

Through our ongoing partnership with award-winning global tree planting organization Trees for the Future, we are planting trees in developing countries throughout the world including Burundi, Uganda, Ghana and Tanzania. In Africa, agroforestry provides families with the education and tools to create their own tree nurseries. The profits allow them to support their basic needs, while also benefitting the environment and fighting deforestation.

In Kokerie, Tanzania, the agroforestry education allowed one family to start their own tree nursery, generating enough profit to maintain their daily needs and keep their two girls, Rosemary and Heavenlight, in school.

Because we plant a tree every time you purchase one of our retail products, Éminence has planted 5 million trees so far!  As the first and only skin care brand ever to plant 5 million trees and to celebrate this amazing achievement – as well as bring awareness to why planting trees is such an important cause – both our company and Trees For The Future recently released inspiring videos.
