Each day our skin suffers wear and tear from a multitude of influences. Be it stress, or environmental factors, the skin requires continuous maintenance to give it its best defense against the elements. Microdermabrasion provides an effective solution and helps increase the strength of your skin; it is a progressive method of non- chemical exfoliation to refine the texture of the skin while tighting the lower layers.
Microdermabrasion is safe and effective for healthy patients with most any skin type. However, those with active rosacea, acne, eczema, dermatitis, recent herpes outbreaks, autoimmune disorders, unstable diabetes or other skin conditions may not qualify.

Skin Resurfacing is an exfoliation technique for removing the top most layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. The Diamond Tome Skin Resurfacing System removes this layer by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips bonded to the tip of the wand, while vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a controlled manner. Removing this outer layer leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin. Unlike other exfoliation treatments, the Diamond Tome Skin Resurfacing System uses no loose abrasives to contaminate you or the environment.
Skin Resurfacing also stimulates the vascular circulation to the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, back, legs, elbows, and feet. It can be used alone, or in combination with other treatments.
The Diamond Tome Skin Resurfacing treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time. To achieve maximum results, several treatments are recommended for a healthier, younger looking skin.
