Microdermabrasion with the DiamondTome wand is the original crystal free microdermabrasion device. With natural diamond chips embedded in the tip, this wand glides over your skin to clear away dirt, debris and dead skin cells, revealing a smoother and clearer complexion.
Your skin goes through a lot on a daily basis. After continuously fighting against the sun’s harmful rays, harsh winds, toxins and pollution, eventually your complexion will show signs of the battle. Your body’s natural defenses will begin to break down and your skin will appear dry, rough, damaged and dull.
When one of our patented face and body wands is applied to your skin, the outer layer that has been exposed to and damaged by the elements is gradually removed. After several sessions, that layer is gone and all of the imperfections that exist on it (such as fine lines, shallow acne scars, age spots, etc.) improve.
Traditional microdermabrasion treatments use tiny crystals – rather than diamonds – to remove the outer layer of skin. While these treatments were undeniably effective, they also had their drawbacks. For one, the crystals were highly abrasive and created inflammation and heat on the skin. If patients already suffered from inflammation, for example due to rosacea or acne, this approach could actually make their condition worse. In addition, the crystal based method resulted in a bit of downtime, which isn’t ideal for busy men and women who have lives, careers and families to get back to.
The newest microdermabrasion treatments use diamonds to abrade the skin instead. They are superior to the crystal-based method in a number of ways:
The patented DiamondTome exfoliation wands are designed to accomplish two goals. First, they improve general skin health, for an overall more rejuvenated appearance. Secondly, they target specific skin conditions, including:
Treatment with the diamond tipped face wands are considered “lunch hour” procedures. The service is 60 minutes, and you will be able to return to work and your normal daily activities right away.
You may appear slightly flushed and red in the treatment area right after your appointment, though these effects should disappear within half an hour. You’ll need to wear sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure for several days to protect your skin, which will be more sensitive and susceptible to damage immediately following this procedure.
In terms of results, many patients see a visible improvement after their very first DiamondTome treatment. However, for longer-lasting and more significant changes, you will probably require about eight sessions spaced a couple of weeks apart, and then maintenance visits every couple of months moving forward.
Microdermabrasion cost $175 for a 60 minute treatment.
