Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure which allows patients to improve the tone, texture and condition of their skin by polishing their skin to remove or exfoliate dead skin cells and debris. Dr. de Ramon utilizes the DiamondTome™ skin resurfacing system which uses diamond tipped wands, as opposed to crystals used in older machines, to gently remove dead skin, even out tone and texture, and stimulate cell turnover. This technology is far more precise than first generations microdermabrasion machines which worked like little "sand blasters". The DiamondTome™ crystal free system is cleaner, more precise, allows treatment up to the eye's edge, and gives more control and flexibility to the operator. This means better results for patients.
Microdermabrasion is an excellent choice for treating hyperpigmentation, skin texture and fine lines of the face, hands, chest and neck. This treatment is so gentle it can be performed in the comfort of our office by the staff at de Ramon Plastic Surgery Institute. The resurfacing will offer a fresher look to your skin which can not be obtained through home treatments. Both men and women of all ages can benefit from microdermabrasion, although it cannot always be performed on older or problem skin. A consultation with our technician can take place the same day as treatment, and the pre-treatment process can be addressed via the phone.
Recovery from microdermabrasion is immediate, although some patients may experience redness and tightness of the skin after treatment. Make-up may be applied immediately after treatment to cover the treated areas. We do recommend avoidance of the sun or the use of sunscreen and the use of moisturizers for 7-10 days after treatment.
