What is microdermabrasion?


Microdermabrasion is an effective, efficient method of skin resurfacing.  It removes dead and flaking skin cells and stimulates the production of fresh, young skin cells and collagen. Microdermabrasion can be used on the face and neck. It can also be applied to hands and feet, elbows, shoulders and knees. It can reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the abdomen and hips. It can also help improve appearance of scars.  

Less aggressive than laser resurfacing, this non-surgical treatment does not require an anesthetic.  Treatment time is less than 45 minutes. Microdermabrasion provides “instant gratification” and visibly improved skin tone. 

With regular treatments, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of age spots and fine lines. It can unclog pores. It can diminish the appearance of acne scars, brown spots, hyperpigmentation and fine lines/wrinkles.  Microdermabrasion can also help repair dull, aging skin or skin damaged by the sun. Also, it is safe to use on all skin types and colors.

How does microdermabrasion work?
A Beautiful You uses DiamondTome™ Resurfacing. Unlilke traditional microdermabrasion treatments that use crystals to "sandblast" your skin, diamond technology is more effective. Using a steel wand plated with natural diamond chips, dead layers of skin are removed and suctioned away. The chips do a much better job of cleaning and removing dead skin layers. Diamond microdermabrasion treatments allow better access to areas such as the eyes, lips and noses. Skin recovers in 1 - 24 hours. For best results, we recommend a program consisting of at least six treatments, with a treatment every two weeks. After this, we suggest a monthly treatment to maintain your beautiful new skin.
