Our microdermabrasion treatment incorporates the patented DiamondTome™ wand to provide a treatment that is a safe, clinically proven therapeutic approach to superior skin care results.
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation technique for removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. The DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System removes this layer by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips bonded to the tip of the wand, while vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a controlled manner. Removing this outer layer leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin. Unlike other exfoliation treatments, the DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System uses no loose abrasives to contaminate you or the environment.
Microdermabrasion also stimulates the vascular circulation to the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, back, legs, elbows, and feet. It can be used alone, or in combination with other treatments. A trained clinician, nurse, aesthetician or physician administers the treatments.
The DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time. To achieve maximum results, several treatments are recommended for a healthier, younger looking skin. Microdermabrasion is a gentle and comfortable process, and is good for aging or sun-damaged skin, light acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and enlarged pores. You won’t need any anesthetic and there is no recovery or downtime afterward.
Am I a good candidate for microdermabrasion?
You are good candidate for this procedure if you want to improve your skin texture, improve fine lines, even out skin tone, and promote healthy glowing skin. It is also a great treatment for acne conditions, provided you are not suffering from cystic acne.
Your personal consultation
During the consultation, you will be asked about the results you expect to achieve from microdermabrasion. This will help us to understand your expectations and determine whether they can be realistically achieved.
How will I be evaluated for microdermabrasion?
Our licensed aesthetician will examine your skin. You should be prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, pregnancies, previous surgeries, and medications that you currently take. It is important for you to provide complete information.
How is microdermabrasion performed?
Our DiamondTome skin resurfacing system will be used for your microdermabrasion treatment. Our aesthetician will select the appropriate setting for you, and pass the wand over your skin multiple times. You will feel suction on your face as the wand is passed. After the session you may have some pinkness and your skin will feel soft. There is no downtime for the microdermabrasion and most patients return to work the same day. Your skin will have a beautiful glow after the treatment.
How do I prepare for my microdermabrasion treatment?
Please arrive to your appointment with your face freshly cleansed.
Microdermabrasion – How will I look or feel initially?
Post-treatment pinkness for a few hours can be expected. You are advised to wear sunscreen daily. Your skin will feel velvety smooth and radiant afterwards.
