Microdermabrasion Frequently Asked Questions
What is skin resurfacing?
Resurfacing is a treatment designed to remove the topmost layer of skin leaving it supple and vibrant. The DiamondTome Wand removes this layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. Resurfacing using the DiamondTome Wand is similar to particle microdermabrasion and chemical peels in its results but without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction. Unlike other exfoliation treatments, the DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System uses no loose abrasives to contaminate you or the environment.
What types of skin conditions can be treated?
Sun damaged skin on face, neck, shouldersAge spots on the hands and face Reduction of minor to moderate early aging fine lines on the forehead and around the eyes Reduction of acne scarring Extraction of blackheads and whiteheads Minor scar revision Hyperpigmentation reduction Oily skin Rejuvenation of skin health
How much discomfort will I experience?
Resurfacing treatments using the DiamondTome System are painless, yet effective. The degree of effectiveness is controlled by a widely adjustable vacuum in conjunction with the varying coarseness of the DiamondTome Wands. We have been trained to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment while at the same time ensuring your comfort. And we offer the DiamondTome System because it is gentler than other exfoliating systems, even at its highest settings.
How will I look after the treatment?
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after the treatment but should return to normal in 10-30 minutes. Your skin will look smoother even after the first treatment and will continue to improve with additional treatments.
