Microdermabrasion FAQ’s

What’s The Big Difference Between Classic Microdermabrasion And Diamond Tipped Microdermabrasion?

The classic system uses crystals to peel off dead skin. The new diamond tipped microdermabrasion system uses diamonds. The result is far less disruptive because it polishes the skin. Lastly, the wand is far more accurate than the previous system. That means a more effective session in less time!

Why was the newer system invented?

There were some concerns about the aluminum oxide dust inhalation.

What is the advantage of a diamond encrusted head over a crystal wand?

It’s a much softer media because it does not use a scratching method to exfoliate. Instead, it polishes the skin. The wand is also very controlled and precise, conforming to the contours of your skin for better results.

What skin types can use Diamond Tipped Microdermabrasion?

All skin types can benefit because it is so much gentler. It is also a great treatment for improving blackheads, oily or dull skin, dry patches, uneven skin tone, fine lines or wrinkles. It also treats enlarged or clogged pores, mild acne scars, sun damaged skin, and coarse skin texture. It also lightens age spots and hyper pigmentation.

What does a session feel like?

Some say it feels like sand paper or a cat’s tongue. (You decide!) The entire treatment is very relaxing and includes lymphatic facial massage. You’ll love the experience!

How often should I get treatments?

Diamond Tipped Microdermabrasion treatments are progressive, not aggressive. We recommend a treatment series initially of once each week for 6 weeks, followed by a maintenance session every 4-6 weeks.

How does Diamond Tipped Microdermabrasion work?

On average, your skin renews every 28 days. As we get older, that renewal rate slows down. By altering the epidermis through deep exfoliation, cell renewal becomes stimulated and regulated. With a healthy, balanced skin, you can improve and eliminate many skin conditions and imperfections.

What are the side effects?

Zip. Zilch. Nada. This system is all organic. It works with your body to achieve the results you want.

Can Diamond Tipped Microdermabrasion treatments be combined with another treatment?

Yes, we can tailor a program for you. Talk with your Technician about what you want to achieve.
