Diamond Microdermabrasion

What are the advantages of microdermabrasion?

The Diamond Tome provides a safe, precise, controllable and selective mechanical peel of the skin surface. The risks, side effects and complications seen with traditional dermabrasion and Laser Skin Resurfacing are avoided with this technique.

The controlled peeling and rapid healing that follows treatment promotes renewal of skin surface cells and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin within the deeper portions of the skin.

How many microdermabrasion sessions will I require?

A course of 5 – 10 sessions at regular intervals of 10 – 14 days is recommended depending on the condition being treated. Treatments typically last 30 minutes.

Is microdermabrasion painful?

Micro skin resurfacing treatments using Diamondtome wands are painless yet effective. The degree of effectiveness is controlled by a widely adjustable vacuum in conjunction with varying coarseness of the wands.

Are there any possible side effects of microdermabrasion?

Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after treatment but for most people skin should return to normal in 10 – 30 minutes. Occasionally the skin may feel warm to the touch and be slightly “tingly” for up to 24 hours following treatment.

How long do the results last?

After the first treatment the skin will have a fresh, radiant glow. Improvement will continue throughout the treatment programme and generally fine lines, wrinkles and age spots become greatly diminished and many patients report that their skin seems to be softer, smoother and younger looking.

Results can be maintained with the correct use of professional homecare products such as Obagi Nu Derm System or SkinMedica and Vivite products as well as regular maintenance micro skin resurfacing every 4 – 6 weeks.
