Dr. Robert J. Segal, a skin care specialist for over 23 years, treats patients with cosmetic or medical issues at the Dermatology Center. Sun-dried, lackadaisical face-skin will be scrubbed clean with DiamondTome microdermabrasion. Like greedy dwarves, diamond tips delve deep through the topsoil of epidermis, revealing the wonders beneath. Once stimulated by the gentle process of facial resurfacing, subdermal tissue regains the trampoline-like elasticity of its younger days, creating healthier looking skin and increasing the effectiveness of facial creams and future treatments. Medical students, interns, and residents from the University of Arizona are often present at the Dermatology Center, begging for money to buy a seat next to Richard Branson on his next trip to Mercury.

The number of units required to treat an area may vary, but on average, 20 units can be used to treat mild to moderate frown lines between the eyes, with results lasting up to four months.
