Microdermabrasion

A non-surgical, non-invasive process that offers safe and controlled skin abrasion.  This procedure utilizes micro crystals of a high medical grade, which are propelled at a high volume and velocity across the skin surface to abrade the skin’s tissue.  This technique is also known as the “Lunch-Time Peel” by Vogue and Elle magazines.  This procedure is relatively painless and results are seen immediately with very little downtime.  This procedure is good for all skin types.

Microdermabrasion (Non-Crystal) Diamond Tip

Microdermabrasion Diamond Tip offers all the advantages of the original Microdermabrasion but does not utilize crystals.  The differences in the treatment will be discussed in your consultation.  Microdermabrasion reduces the effect of aging on your skin. Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Along with the face, the neck, chest, cleavage, arms and hands may be affected as well.

Microdermabrasion reduces the appearance of fine lines, improves skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it more supple and radiant. This treatment also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the skin resulting in a healthier and more youthful appearance. Treatments are administered by our trained medical aestheticians.  A wonderful alternative or compliment to chemical peels, a Microdermabrasion treatment is non-invasive, pain-free without downtime.

Clinical Skin Care Center uses the Diamond Tip system, which is more gentle and effective than other exfoliating systems, even at higher settings. The length of the treatment and number of treatments vary depending on skin type and condition.  We recommend a series of 6-8 treatments for the best outcome.  Results are gradual but highly effective. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment.  The Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion is safe, FDA approved and produces excellent results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Microdermabrasion work?

This procedure stimulates blood flow to the surface of the skin which increases oxygenation, causing an enhancement of cell renewal and collagen growth.  The results causes skin to have a vibrant healthy glow.

Am I a good candidate for this treatment?

Most ideal candidates are busy people who don’t want the longer recovery times needed for laser resurfacing or chemical peels.  Other ideal candidates are those sensitive to chemical peels or who don’t respond to acne medication, or those suffering melasma (blotches of skin pigmentation).

How many treatments will I need?

You will be given an assessment during your consultation.  Treatments are usually performed in six or more sessions with the first three treatments being completed within seven to ten days, biweekly thereafter.

What should I expect after each treatment?

Results are noticeable after the first treatment.  Skin may appear pink with a soft texture.  More aggressive treatments may leave the treated area with a reddish appearance for up to 24 hours.  Some clients may experience a light peeling after the more aggressive treatment.  Clients may apply light cosmetics after treatment and should use sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure for twelve hours after treatment.
