Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Age Spots/Superficial Pigmentation, Post-Traumatic Pigmentation, Blackheads/Whiteheads
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the skin's surface. It can provide substantial improvement in certain types of skin, especially aged and sun-damaged. A mechanical device without crystals is used to precisely and superficially peel the skin’s surface. The main advantage of this technique is that it is gentle and requires no significant change in a patient's usual activities. The best results usually require multiple treatment sessions (may vary from 5 to 10 treatments).
Conditions Treatable with Microdermabrasion:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots/superficial pigmentation
- General exfoliation/rejuvenation
- Blackheads and whiteheads
- Post-traumatic pigmentation
The DiamondTome Microdermabrasion delivers a controlled, mechanized exfoliation of the uppermost scaly surface skin layer. The treatment typically lasts 15-20 minutes. There is a vacuum-like action which creates mild inflammation to deeper dermal skin layers, helping to stimulate new collagen formation. While the effects are more modest with one treatment, more improvement can be seen with multiple treatments.
