If your skin appears dull, lifeless, or even older than you’d like, you can give it an instant boost with a microdermabrasion treatment. New, much healthier skin is hiding just below the surface of the old, dead surface skin, and microdermabrasion is an ideal way to uncover it instantly, without the risks of scars or side effects.
Diamond tip microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive treatment that professionally exfoliates the skin by removing dead, uneven layers of skin. This method of microdermabrasion uses a diamond tipped instrument to lightly abrade the top layers of skin and bring new, radiant skin to the surface.
What is diamond tip microdermabrasion?
Diamond tip microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment for a clear, revitalized complexion. A typical diamond tip microdermabrasion treatment is about 30 minutes. During the treatment, a diamond tipped wand is gently sanded across the skin surface exfoliating the epidermis (top skin layer), as a suction device reabsorbs the dead skin cells. This treatment is used to encourage the body to stimulate collagen production and mechanically abrade the skin surface.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate?
The ideal candidate for a diamond tip microdermabrasion has minor scarring, skin texture irregularities, or sun damage. Diamond tip microdermabrasion is not recommended for those with certain skin conditions like active rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, lupus, psoriasis, herpes, acne, sunburns, other skin infections, or certain skin types.
What Is The Average Recovery Time?
There is little downtime following a diamond tip microdermabrasion treatment. Redness and swelling resolves in a few hours, although dry flaking may persist for two to three days. Patients should avoid harsh/irritating skin care products and significantly reduce sun exposure for a few days following the procedure.
What Are The Potential Side Effects?
Possible side effects following a diamond tip microdermabrasion are few as the procedure is typically well tolerated. Bruising, redness, skin sensitivity, or excessive peeling may occur for several days after a diamond tip microdermabrasion. This is, however, unusual.
What Are The Results Someone Can Expect?
Results of a diamond tip microdermabrasion are immediately noticeable skin smoothness, evenness, and brightening. Multiple treatments spaced two to three weeks apart creates the most ideal results. Maintenance treatments can be used to maintain the ideal skin aesthetic and skin health once achieved.
