DiamondTome Microdermabrasion is the new “lunch time” approach to skin resurfacing. With the use of a natural diamond tip and a gentle vacuum, the DiamondTome exfoliates dead skin cells and unclogs pores. Less aggressive than laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that does not require an anesthetic. Treatments take 30-40 minutes and provide many benefits which include:
While the effects of microdermabrasion are not as dramatic as those of laser resurfacing, recovery time after the procedure is much shorter. Though there may be some redness afterwards, most patients can return to work immediately.
If you’re considering a microdermabrasion treatment – or any other treatment, including Botox, Restylane and Laser Hair Removal – we invite you to schedule a free consultation.
Microdermabrasion is a scientific method used to gently and progressively abrade the skin’s surface. It is used for skin resurfacing and treating a range of skin abnormalities. This treatment has been used in Europe for years; now this exciting procedure is helping men and women in the United States experience remarkable improvements in their skin texture, regardless of skin color. With our Microdermabrasion skin treatment program, you can see immediate improvements in your skin’s appearance. This unique approach removes dead and flaking skin cells and stimulates the production of fresh, young skin cells and collagen.
How does Microdermabrasion work and what results can I expect?
DiamondTome Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the top epidermal layer of the skin without the use of aluminum oxide crystals. The diamond tipped wand and vacuum makeup the hand piece that is held at a precise angle against the skin, producing a skin-polishing peel. In as little as 30 – 40 minutes, this gentle abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Treatments are applied through a course of weekly to monthly sessions. It can be used to treat the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back and hands. Microdermabrasion enhances the skin’s condition by stimulating collagen production and does what no other available non-surgical treatment can do in combating the signs of aging skin. Most importantly, it is safe to use on all skin types and colors.
Age spots and fine lines are reduced, pores are unclogged, acne is diminished, collagen is stimulated and a more uniform tone is evident. Most clients report that their skin is visibly softer, tighter, smoother and younger-looking, even right after their first treatment.
Some physicians also see an improvement caused by collagen tightening on the layer of skin beneath the layer treated by microdermabrasion. This further reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles though the effect is temporary. Microdermabrasion treatments must be repeated in order to sustain the effect.
You will notice an immediate improvement after your first treatment. Your skin will have a fresh pink glow and smoother texture. Improvements continue throughout your treatment program.

After the first six sessions, you should receive treatments once a month to maintain your youthful-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion is right for all skin types and for anyone interested in minimizing the appearance of:
Microdermabrasion is not recommended anyone who has taken the acne drug Accutane within the past six months because there is a risk of creating scar or injury in someone who has taken Accutane.
Also, because there is a risk that microdermabrasion may stimulate a new outbreak, patients who have a history of herpes simplex (cold sores) around their lips should consider taking an oral antiviral medication before undergoing Treatment by microdermabrasion.
Following your microdermabrasion treatment you may find that you experience skin peeling; and your Images Med Spa Medical Aesthetician will recommend that you use a moisturizer and sun screen following the procedure.
Like most of Images Med Spa’s non-invasive treatments, there is no downtime. You can resume your daily activities immediately after your Microdermabrasion treatment. It is recommended you avoid sun exposure on the treated area for at least 24 hours. Also, because your outer layer of skin has been exfoliated, the treated area will be sensitive to hot water and sweat for the first day.
Microdermabrasion is just one of the many excellent non-surgical treatments offered by Images Med Spa. Other popular treatments include Botox injections, Restylane injections and Laser Hair Removal.
