How does Diamond Microdermabrasion work?

The DiamondTome system requires no crystals or particulates to create the abrasive action. DiamondTome microdermabrasion uses a wand encrusted with diamond chips and slight suction to exfoliate the upper layers of your skin.

Through the gently abrasive diamond chip handpiece, the Diamond Tome delivers a controlled, mechanized, exfoliation of the upper most, scaly, surface skin layer.

We can adjust and tailor the power of the peel according to your skin type and individual needs. The treatment can also be combined with both your home skin care program, such as Obagi, and other inoffice (no downtime) procedures such as light glycolic peels or Laser treatments.


What skin conditions are most effectively treated?

Microdermabrasion is beneficial for the treatment of superficial wrinkles and fine lines, especially on the upper lip and crow's foot area at the corner of the eyes. Treatment of the cheeks and forehead will often soften the appearance of fine wrinkles while simultaneously improving the blotchy, irregular skin color and brown spots that commonly appear with age.

These superficial skin peels can result in a softer, smoother and more youthful appearance. In addition, some stretch marks, chicken pox scars and some types of acne scars can be improved with Microdermabrasion. Finally, some blackheads, whiteheads and other oily skin surface debris can be effectively removed.


What are the advantages of Microdermabrasion?

The Diamond Tome provides a safe, precise, controllable and selective mechanical peel of the skin surface. The risks, side effects and complications seen with traditional dermabrasion and Laser Skin Resurfacing are avoided with this technique.

The controlled peeling and rapid healing that follows treatment promotes renewal of skin surface cells and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin within the deeper portions of the skin.


How many Microdermabrasion sessions will I require?

A course of 5 - 10 sessions at regular intervals of 10 - 14 days is recommended depending on the condition being treated. Treatments typically last 30 minutes.


How much discomfort will I experience?

Micro skin resurfacing treatments using Diamondtome wands are painless yet effective. The degree of effectiveness is controlled by a widely adjustable vacuum in conjunction with varying coarseness of the wands.


Are there any possible side effects?

Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after treatment but for most people skin should return to normal in 10 - 30 minutes. Occasionally the skin may feel warm to the touch and be slightly "tingly" for up to 24 hours following treatment.


How long do the results last?

After the first treatment the skin will have a fresh, radiant glow. Improvement will continue throughout the treatment programme and generally fine lines, wrinkles and age spots become greatly diminished and many patients report that their skin seems to be softer, smoother and younger looking.

Results can be maintained with the correct use of professional homecare products such as Obagi Nu Derm System or SkinMedica and Vivite products as well as regular maintenance micro skin resurfacing every 4 - 6 weeks.
