Microdermabrasion & Dermaplaning

Microdermabrasion

The DiamondSkin Microdermabrasion System combines oxygen therapy with crystal-free microdermabrasion in one unique treatment. The technique of crystal-free microdermabrasion has proven to be a most innovative and effective treatment for almost any type of skin problem and the signs of skin aging, yet is gentle enough for even sensitive skin.

By age 35, almost 50% of the skin’s ability to consume and retain oxygen has been impaired. Less oxygen results in more wrinkles, fine lines, and dull looking skin. Microdermabrasion results in a constant stimulation of cell renewal by the process of removing the excess dead skin cells from the stratum corneum (the top layer of the epidermis). This method for rejuvenating skin on the face and neck can improve fine wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, soften acne scars, and reduce enlarged pores.

Our microdermabrasion system produces an allotropic form of oxygen that can penetrate the skin better than oxygenated crèmes and has the ability to kill harmful bacteria. Because oxygen is introduced to the skin at the cellular level, it bonds to fibroblasts, the cells that create collagen, and provides additional strength to the collagen and elastin fibers, which in turn will helps improve the elasticity of the skin. The oxygen also oxidizes the oily sebum found inside the pores, helping to eliminate the oil as a food source for the bacteria that play a role in acne development.

Microdermabrasion has no downtime and is useful for the following skin conditions, especially when combined with LimeLight, Laser Genesis, Botox, and chemical peels:

  • Reduction of fine aging lines, as well as
  • Minor scar revision & reduction of acne scars
  • Sun-damage, age spots, & hyperpigmented skin
  • Rejuvenation of overall skin health
  • Extraction of blackheads and whiteheads

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning, also known as Epidermal Leveling is a gentle form of manual exfoliation of the skin that resurfaces  sun-damaged, dull, dehydrated  skin.

Dermaplaning is a gentle medical skin  treatment that is performed by using a surgical blade known as a dermatome that gently scrapes the  outermost layers of the epidermis, therefore, ridding it of dead skin cells,  impurities and debris.  This treatment is an excellent way to exfoliate   the skin and to regenerate new skin cells thus leaving the complexion  smooth, soft and vibrant.

  • Remove light surface wrinkling
  • Smooth acne scarring
  • Improve skin texture
  • Even out skin tone
  • Help to unblock blackheads,
  • Reduce the pores size
  • Remove facial hair (hair does not grow back thicker)
  • Generate new healthy cell
  • Enhances penetration of skin   care products

Dermaplaning  provides a non-invasive option for those seeking  fresh-looking skin.

If you have dull, dry, dehydrated and or congested skin, it is often because  you have a surface barrier of dead cells that are not allowing topical products to penetrate. At the same time, impurities from within are trapped and underlying new cells are unable to surface. Once your skin is dermaplaned, it accelerates the sloughing of the dead skin, amd that barrier is removed.  The skin begins to respond to the skin products being used.  Dermaplaning may also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars. By skimming away the surrounding skin, the noticeable difference between the levels of the area of skin is evened out and “planed” smooth.
