Microdermabrasion Frequently Asked Questions
What is Microdermabrasion?
It is a skin-revitalizing treatment that helps repair skin that is damaged from the sun, scars, acne and the unwanted effects of aging. I am an RN with advanced training specializing in DiamondTome Microexfoliation using a Crystal Free System.
Is Microdermabrasion safe?
Yes, Microdermabrasion is a simple, non-invasive procedure performed by a licensed individual. Using the crystal free DiamondTome wands, which are painless and effective, eliminates the risk of traditional Microdermabrasion.
What are benefits of Microdermabrasion?
Reduction of minor to moderate early aging fine lines and sun damaged skin. It extracts blackheads and whiteheads and reduces acne scars. It decreases hyperpigmentation as well as age spots while rejuvenating the overall skin health.
How will I look after the treatment?
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after the treatment but I use a special cooling gel/seaweed mask after the treatment so your skin returns to normal in approximately 30 minutes. Your skin will look and feel smoother even after the first treatment.
How long will it take to see results?
While you may see visible results after the first treatment, lasting and more significant results will occur after 6-8 treatments spaced two weeks apart with a maintenance treatment every two to three months.
Can I return to my normal activities?
Yes, however, it is advisable to avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for at least 3 days after your treatment. A sunscreen is essential to use afterwards since exfoliated skin has temporarily lost some of its natural protection to the environment.
How can I maintain longer results?
Cosmeceutical products are available directly to you after your treatment. I am currently a distributor for A-Cute Derm, SkinMedica, and Glo-Therapeutics. Research and principles of wound healing and tissue regeneration led to the development of many of these products. These products help replenish essential nutrients for over-stressed or damaged skin caused by UV Radiation and skincare treatments such as Microdermabrasion.
