What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a medical technique for removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it supple and vibrant. The DiamondTone* Wand removes this layer of skin by gently abrading the skin with natural diamond chips while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of skin leaves a smoother texture and promotes new growth.
Microdermabrasion using a DiamondTone* Wand is similar to particle dermabrasion and chemical peels in its results but without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction. Unlike other mircrodermabraders, this system uses no loose crystals or other abrasives to contaminate you or the environment.
Microdermabrasion is a wonderful alternative to laser or chemical peels because it is noninvasive, non-surgical and requires no down time after treatment. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after treatment and your skin is free of redness, irritation and particle contamination. Patients experience softer, smoother and cleaner skin after the first treatment. Treatment series vary from four to ten sessions depending on the condition being treated and the type of skin.
