DiamondTomeTM Microdermabrasion

The DiamondTome microdermabrasion or Skin Resurfacing System is a skin rejuvenation technology with absolutely no discomfort or downtime. The precise diamond wand chip size and vacuum settings assure the appropriate amount of exfoliation that will produce uniform results. Microdermabrasion is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it more supple and vibrant. It also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance.

This procedure is ideal for treating the face, neck, back, chest, decolletage, arms and hands.

About The Procedure

After consultation, cleansing and skin analysis, a technician will insert a filter and turn on the machine, creating a gentle suctioning effect.  The diamond tipped wand will be passed over the skin over the skin, removing the buildup of dead and dulling skin cells as well as gently stimulating blood circulation to the area treated. The suction strength and roughness of the diamond tip will be adjusted according to your skin type, treatment programme and area treated. After the procedure, the effect of any treatments or skin preparations following this will be enhanced. Dislodged blackheads, whiteheads as well as dead skin will be caught in the filter.
