Microdermabrasion Q & A
What is microdermabrasion?
The minimally-abrasive cosmetic dermatology procedure known as microdermabrasion is a technique that exfoliates and gently sands away the surface layer of the skin. The rough outer layer is removed to reveal smoother, newly generated skin underneath. This treatment is effective at improving the appearance of blackheads and age spots, reducing hyperpigmentation (dark patches), reducing the appearance of stretch marks, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, decreasing pores, and treating acne and acne scars.
Which microdermabrasion system is used at RAOOF MD?
At the practice of Dr. T. Joseph Raoof, your doctor uses the ground-breaking DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System to fight the signs of aging on your skin. This patented treatment system exfoliates the skin with special diamond chips that are bonded to the tip of the exfoliation wand. As the outer layer of skin is gently and safely removed, an attached vacuum pulls away the old skin to reveal fresher, newly generated skin beneath.
In addition to clinically proven microdermabrasion and skin resurfacing, the DiamondTome system activates vascular circulation in the treated area to further enhance the health and vitality of your skin. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest, back, legs, elbows, hands, and feet for a full-body skin resurfacing. Plus, this microdermabrasion technique can be coupled with other cosmetic treatments for maximum results.
What are the benefits of skin resurfacing?
There are many advantages to getting this specialized microdermabrasion procedure. One of the main reasons many patients choose the DiamondTome system is because the procedure is non-invasive, pain-free, and does not require downtime for recovery. Furthermore, the procedure is relatively quick and can be completed in under a half hour. Unlike many other treatments, microdermabrasion is safe and effective on all skin types as well.
