The aestheticians at Dimitri Dermatology exfoliate face-skin and shrink pores during 30-minute microdermabrasion sessions. Upon arrival, patients discuss their countenance's history with a staff member before handing it over for scrubbing, ensuring that each session is appropriately tailored to account for sensitivity and loose glass eyes.
