Revitalize Your Skin With Medical Microdermabrasion
Women and men who want to tone and smooth their skin, shrink pores and repair damage from acne or the sun should consider medical microdermabrasion. This procedure offers a highly effective treatment with an immediate return to an active daily life in Southern California.
How Medical Microdermabrasion Works
Named DiamondTome™, this advanced cosmetic procedure offers substantial skin renewal in 30 minutes without the use of lasers, chemicals or surgery. While this approach presents similar results to particle microdermabrasion, it does not cause the skin irritation that accompanies the use of particles. DiamondTome™ utilizes natural diamond chips to smooth the skin while carefully exfoliating and removing dead cells. The process is sterile, painless, environmentally friendly and works on all skin colors. In most cases, the treatment is performed every 14 days until the desired results are achieved.
The immediate benefits of medical microdermabrasion include:
• Smoother and fresher skin texture
• Reduced visibility of sun and age spots
• Reduced acne scarring
• More even skin tone
• Fewer wrinkles
What to Expect After Medical Microdermabrasion
A common effect directly after the procedure is flushed skin. This reaction is normal and lasts for about 30 minutes. After this point, the skin will feel clean and soft and will have a healthy glow, which will continue to greater degrees with each treatment. All regular activities can be resumed right away, including sports and exercise.
The vacuum process used in medical microdermabrasion can be adjusted to control the level of treatment. The skin will adapt to the process over time and will accept more aggressive vacuuming that will produce more effective results. Some patients may elect to add an infusion treatment to enhance the microdermabrasion treatment. An infusion is a combination of prescription products that target specific skin issues and are topically applied after the vacuum process is finished. This works especially well because the skin has been made more receptive to these products through exfoliation.
Those who are interested in improving their skin and exploring their options with medical microdermabrasion should call the Calabasas Dermatology Center to schedule a consultation.
