Microdermabrasion has become an immensely popular skin treatment. This non-invasive procedure uses the DiamondTome® Wand to assist in the removal of the superficial layer of dead skin cells. When the top layer of skin, the stratum corneum, is removed, the body interprets it as an injury. It then works to quickly replace the removed skin cells with newer ones.

While there are treatments that you can do at home, the devices used in a medical office generally have larger motors and more power, and they penetrate deeper into the skin to provide accurate exfoliation. Microdermabrasion is an effective skin care procedure, but it is important to remember that it isn’t going to be a cure for all problems. Prior to treatment, you should talk about your skin goals and have realistic expectations on the results you should expect. Like any other treatment, there are some people that don’t notice results right away while others can experience a change after the first procedure. The most important thing is to be on the same page as your technician. Our goal is to ensure that you walk away from your treatment content with the results.
