Microdermabrasion: Using Diamond Tips to Polish Away the Uppermost Layers of the Skin

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation technique that exfoliates the uppermost layers of the skin. We run a diamond-tip applicator over your skin to polish away the dead skin cells and the outermost layers of the skin. Exfoliating the epidermis paves the way for smoother, softer, and more youthful skin to rise to the surface. Microdermabrasion can be performed using diamond applicators or crystal tips, but we use diamond applicators because they’re safer and more effective.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Other types of scars

Microdermabrasion FAQs

How does microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion involves using a diamond-tipped wand to slough away the uppermost layers of the skin, including the damaged skin tissues and dead skin cells. The wand also includes a suction tool that vacuums away the dirt, makeup residue, and dead skin cells. This treatment instantly makes your skin look smoother, softer, and more even-textured.

The benefits of diamond microdermabrasion over crystal microdermabrasion?

Diamond microdermabrasion involves using a diamond-tipped wand, whereas crystal microdermabrasion involves using a want with thousands of tiny crystals. Diamond microdermabrasion is considered to be safer and more effective, and it doesn’t leave behind any residue. Meanwhile, crystal microdermabrasion leaves behind small crystal particles that can’t be removed completely.

What parts of my body can microdermabrasion work on?

Microdermabrasion is generally used for skin rejuvenation on the face. But it can be used on any part of the body, excluding the areas with extremely thin skin, such as the ears, feet, and hands. You can undergo microdermabrasion on the upper thighs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, waistline, and other parts of the body.

What are the side effects of microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion may cause mild post-treatment redness, tenderness, swelling, and discomfort for a few hours. You can apply a moisturizer to reduce skin dryness.

Does microdermabrasion involve downtime?

Microdermabrasion doesn’t involve any downtime. Your skin will be photosensitive, so you should avoid direct sunlight and strenuous workouts for a few days, but you can resume most of your daily activities and work immediately.

When will I see the results of microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion produces instant results. Your skin will look brighter, smoother, softer, and more youthful when you walk out of the medical center.

How long do the microdermabrasion results last?

The results of microdermabrasion last for a few weeks, but you can repeat the treatment once every 4 to 8 weeks to maintain the results.
