Attempts to soften and smooth the skin are practically as old as recorded history – sour milk, pearl powder, phenol and vegetable shortening. Then, in the 1990′s – in the decade known for “grunge” – from across the Atlantic, came the latest “beauty secret” – microdermabrasion with either salt crystals or aluminum oxide powder to scrape away dead skin and a vacuum to clear clogged pores. Today, although it’s only a decade or so removed, it’s a new century, and the latest beauty secret has been replaced by greatest – DiamondTome™ particle-free microdermabrasion. The rest, as they say, is history.

If you’re considering a microdermabrasion, Sacramento’s Plastic Surgery Center can help. Call 916-569-0861 to schedule a consultationtoday.

Everything You Need To Know – And More – About Microdermabrasion

Over time, whether you’re a man or woman, a sun worshipper or not, the effects of ultraviolet light – especially here in Sacramento – begin to take their toll, revealing themselves on your face, neck, shoulders, back, arms, hands and legs. DiamondTome microdermabrasion uses a wand encrusted with diamond chips to exfoliate the upper layers of your skin (epidermis), while also stimulating the elastic tissue underneath. The end result is the removal of the dead skin cells that have been building up and clogging your pores and the rejuvenation of sun damaged skin. Age spots and superficial scars resulting from acne or injury are reduced, blotchy skin is minimized and whiteheads and blackheads are eliminated. Microdermabrasion can work as a stand-alone skin care treatment, or be combined with another medical spa service such as the Obagi Blue Peel®.

The length of the noninvasive, medical spa procedure, as well as the number of skin care treatments is dependent both upon your skin type and the condition treated. The procedure itself is pain-free and allows you to resume your normal activities immediately, free of the redness associated with microdermabrasion procedures of the past. Although the results are gradual and multiple treatments are recommended to treat sun damage, fine lines, shallow acne scars and dry patches, many Sacramento and Granite Bay area men and women experience noticeable improvement after just one skin care treatment.
