Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven E. Stein of Somerset Center for Plastic Surgery fills up self-confidence tanks with rejuvenating treatments that emphasize patient comfort and education. During the microdermabrasion sessions, a certified aesthetician utilizes DiamondTome machinery equipped with gentle abrasives and a suction device to uproot the outermost layer of skin, revealing the untouched dermis and treasure map that rests below the surface. The skin-freshening treatment works to fade fine lines, repair sun's damage, and resurface bumpy epidermal roads, and is usually performed on the face and neck, but can be used to clear other parts of the body, such as the backs of hands or the front of the ID. The entire procedure lasts approximately 15–30 minutes, and repeated treatments may augment the skin-brightening results.
Microdermabrasion: Forging A Crystal-Clear Complexion
If anyone can attest to the notion that diamonds are forever, it’s an aesthetician. Thanks to the nonsurgical exfoliating treatment known as microdermabrasion, many of those in the beauty business have gotten a firsthand glimpse at the stones’ power to stop time. A less-intense alternative to the chemical peel, microdermabrasion removes the outermost layers of skin by exfoliating it with diamonds. This stimulates cell regeneration and allows new skin—free of fine lines and blemishes—to rise to the surface.
Due to its quick application and recovery time, the microdermabrasion treatment is sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime peel.” The aesthetician performs the treatment with a handheld applicator, which dispenses diamond chips as it glides across the skin’s surface. An attached vacuum and pump then dispose of the loosened skin cells. As a result, newly generated layers of skin take the place of skin blemished by sun damage, wrinkles, acne, and scars. Though they typically target specific areas of the face, microdermabrasion treatments can also exfoliate skin on the chest, back, and limbs.
