Although similar to a chemical peel in terms of removing outer layers of the skin from the face, a microdermabrasion treatment at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists enhances the face in more ways than one.
We use theDiamondTome Wand, a device that removes dead layers of skin in a more controlled manner, layer by thin layer. This ensuresthe treatment is as tailored to specific patient needs as possibleallowing the procedure to be as personal as possible. Whether your skin needs a full makeover or a small change, theDiamondTome Wand is a perfect choice.
By using this wand, the layers of dead skin cells are removed, as well as sun-damaged skin, leaving a smooth, healthy layerin its wake. This form of treatment also promotes the growth of new, enhanced skin cells. If the skin issue isn't as close to the skin surface, it can also be remedied using the wand. Deeper wrinkles, scar revision and the removal of acne scars are some of the more serious issues the DiamondTome can take care of.
A microdermabrasion treatment at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists enhances the face in more ways than one.
Other issues that can be treated include:
- Age spots
- Extraction of fine lines
- Hyperpigmentation reduction
- Oily skin
Before the procedure is started, the face is cleared of all present oils. The DiamondTome Wand is then used to treat the face ina planned, systematic mode. Patients often feel little to no pain while this is occurring, the tongue being compared often to the feel of a cat's tongue. Recovery is minimal, despite the wand's ability to go deeper into the surface of the skin than other microdermabrasion machines.
After the treatment is completed, the skin will often appear to look flushed for the next 10-30 minutes. Patients can return to work and other daily activitiesimmediately afterward.
For more severe cases of acne scarring, scar revision or deeper wrinkles, more than one procedure may be necessary. To learn more, schedule a consultation with dual board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. James Marotta or visit our website.
