Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion

The Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliation of the skin, eliminating dead skin cells that lay on the surface of the skin. Removing these dead cells allows the skin’s surface to be smoother and brighter, and also increases the skin’s cellular turnover rate, which slows as the skin ages. Pores will appear minimized, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, scars become faded, and pigmentation is improved.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliation of the skin. By removing dead surface skin cells, new skin cells emerge to give the skin an immediate bright appearance and smooth texture. When done regularly, microdermabrasion can decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve the texture of the skin, decrease the appearance of large pores, and lighten scars, and hyperpigmentations.

What should I expect?

Patients are asked to remove their makeup prior to treatments. During the procedure, patients can relax in a comfortable chair while one of our technicians moves the diamond tip hand piece over the area to be treated. A moisturizing lotion is then applied following the treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

Treatment times are dependant upon the area to be treated, however, most appointments last a half hour.

Are there any precautions for the microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasions cannot be performed on open or injured skin.
