A deep exfoliation treatment for a smoother, more radiant complexion. Also promotes the growth of new healthy cells.
Microdermabrasion is a minor in-office procedure in which the surface epithelium is gently exfoliated. It is much more gentle than laser skin resurfacing procedures, and is not intended to treat the deeper wrinkles. Microdermabrasion is designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimize blemishes and pigmented skin lesions due to sun damage, reduce open pore sizes, and eliminate white and black heads.
Unlike the stronger chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion requires no anaesthesia, local injections, or sedation. The procedure gently removes the top layer of skin without any pain. The skin is typically left with a slight blush that lasts only about 24 hours. Patients may return to work immediately following the procedure. No medications are required and cosmetics may be applied immediately afterwards. Darker skinned patients that may not be good candidates for either chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing may be treated with microdermabrasion as well.
For best results, most patients need one treatment every one to two weeks for 6 sessions, followed by one treatment every month for maintenance. Most patients will notice considerable improvement in the smoothness and tightness of their skin after several treatments. Microdermabrasion should not be considered as a replacement to the laser skin resurfacing procedures, but rather, should be thought of as an adjunct to the armamentarium of skin treatments presently available.
Diamondtome Skin Resurfacing System
The Diamondtome system is a type of microdermabrasion that removes the top most layer of your skin leaving it supple and vibrant. The diamond tone wand removes the layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips while at the same time vacuuming out the pores and the dead skin cells. Removing the outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new cells.
