What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that removes the outermost layer of dry, dead skin to reveal younger, healthier-looking skin, leaving it supple and vibrant. Also known as microderm, microdermabrasion is one of the easiest and most effective series of anti-aging treatments you can have.
Microdermabrasion treatment encourages the production of a new layer of skin cells containing higher levels of collagen and elastin, both of which further improve your skin’s appearance. Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance. It may be used in conjunction with other Treatments such as photo rejuvenation or medical peels to enhance results!
How it Works
At Skin2 Aestheticsm, we use the DiamondTome™ system along with professional products customized for your skin type and needs. The DiamondTome™ Wand removes this layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner.These diamonds have been sifted to be a particular size and shape and are uniformly applied to the tip of the wand. The wand is attached to the unit which provides vacuum suction. The vacuum keeps the tip of the wand in contact with the surface of the skin. As the wand is passed over the skin, the diamonds remove the dead cells.

Where is Microdermabrasion used?
Most commonly to treat the face, neck, decollate, shoulders, back, hands, elbows, and knees. Although, any skin surface, on any part of the body, can benefit from treatment.
How often will are treatments required?
Microdermabrasion is a progressive, not an aggressive treatment. Results are often seen after four to six treatments, Some conditions, like scarring, may require more. After the first treatment, the skin will feel and appear cleaner, smoother, and softer for most people. Initially, treatments may take place every 1 – 2 weeks, based on the client’s tolerance and needs. Then, ideally, monthly maintenance are required to maintain the benefits, as skin cells mature approximately every 28 to 35 days.
