Crystal Free Microdermabrasion

DiamondTome®      Enchanted Rejuventation

How Can Diamonds Rejuvenate Your Skin?

We offer the new particle-free DiamondTome microdermabrasion system! Once you experience this machine, you won't want to go back to aluminum oxide crystals! Your skin will have a radiant glow, free of loose particles. This latest technology utilizes natural diamond chips plated to a stainless surgical-steel wand. This effectively polishes away the top skin layers to expose healthier skin and promote new growth. Safe for most skin types, this treatment is virtually pain free and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. The goal of this system is to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, fine superficial scars and acne blemishes. This procedure is popular with patients showing early signs of aging and sun exposure.

How long does the procedure take and how many will I need?

Microdermabrasion is a quick procedure that usually takes about 45 minutes. We recommend you start with 4-8 sessions, one every two weeks. Following your initial treatment your skin maintenance program should include an additional treatment every 1-3 months. After just one treatment, most individuals notice improvement in the texture of their skin, making it a very popular treatment to have a few days before a special occasion. With multiple treatments, fine lines and scars become less noticeable and skin looks more translucent. Most people should see dramatic improvements after just a few treatments, but stick with it for the best results.

How is the procedure done?

After cleansing your treatment area, we use the  sterile diamond wand to gently exfoliate your skin without the use of anesthesia. We will adjust the pressure for your skin and move the Microdermabrasion machine's handpiece across the skin  treatment area. The scale-like, lifeless epidermal cells are  suctioned back into the same handpiece to reveal a fresh, invigorated skin surface. After your treatment, you may choose an optional chemical peel or facial mask to optimize your results.

Does Microdermabrasion hurt?

Not really. Microdermabrasion may sting a little around the eye area. Your skin may feel a little hot and appear a little pink immediately following your treatment. You should tell your staff immediately if your treatment is too uncomfortable; they can adjust the treatment for you.

What is the recovery time ?

There is very little recovery time needed after Microdermabrasion. Some patients may experience minor redness and/or dryness in their skin for about a day after the procedure. Your treatment area may feel slightly sunburned or windburned after the procedure, but this should last only a few hours.

Our staff will recommend a moisturizer to use after your treatment. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun after microdermabrasion, so please wear a high-quality sunscreen with a SPF 15 minimum. Remember that exposure to the sun accelerates skin aging and can counteract the benefits of microdermabrasion! You should avoid Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, Glycolic Acid products and skin exfoliation scrubs 3-days before and 3-days after a treatment. We discourage the use of full face make-up, such as liquid foundations or pressed powder foundations for 24 hours after a treatment. Eye make-up and lipstick can be applied immediately after a treatment.

How do I prepare for this procedure?

We recommend that you avoid any substance (Accutane, Retin A, Acid Peels, heavy exfoliation, etc.) and any situation (Sun Burn, etc.) that will leave your skin sensitive on the day of treatment. You should stop smoking, taking aspirin or taking diet prior to the procedure. If you have health problems ie heart and lung problems you should ask your family doctor before having this non-invasive treatment.
