What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion in Bellevue is a quick and easy way to exfoliate your skin and buff away many of the superficial imperfections that have appeared over time. The procedure removes the damaged outer layers of the skin, allowing skincare products to penetrate deeper into your skin, and ultimately work more effectively. For this reason, adding microdermabrasion as your beauty regimen can help you maintain a more youthful, fresh glow.

What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?

Compared to other skin treatments such as laser resurfacing and photo rejuvenation, microdermabrasion is very gentle, providing a quick treatment with little or no downtime and a moderate, overall improvement in the skin. You can expect improvement after microdermabrasion if you notice:

  • Oily or dull skin
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Irregular skin texture
  • Minor sun damage
  • Blackheads and whiteheads

How does DiamondTome™ microdermabrasion work?

Traditional microdermabrasion involves exfoliation with aluminum oxide crystals and suction. We use the DiamondTome™ system, an improved method that is both precise and gentle. A special wand is drawn across the skin in a uniform pattern, exfoliating and removing dead skin in a controlled fashion. The DiamondTome™ system has different abrasion settings to meet your needs, whether you want an aggressive treatment or just a quick renewal before an important event.

What should I expect after my treatment?

For 48 hours after microdermabrasion in Bellevue, you may experience mild redness and some skin peeling. You should protect your skin with moisturizer and a good UV sun block. Avoid direct sun exposure and stop the use of any retinols, salicyclic, and glycolic acids for three to five days after your treatment.

Microdermabration FAQ's

Is DiamondTome™ microdermabrasion for both women and men?

Yes. Microdermabrasion is just as effective for men as it is for women. Men can expect the same beneficial results.

What areas of the body can be treated with microdermabrasion?

The face is treated most often with microdermabrasion, but the neck, chest, arms, and hands can also be treated if necessary.

Are there any side effects with microdermabrasion?

During your consultation, we will explain more about the likelihood of side effects like redness or skin irritation after microdermabrasion.

Is there downtime?

Most microdermabrasion treatments require no downtime, and patients return to their normal routine immediately.

Is microdermabrasion good for acne scars?

When the top layer of skin is removed with microdermabrasion, any superficial acne scarring can be minimized. Deeper scarring will require alternate treatments such as a deeper chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.

What will my results look like?

After treatment, you should see visible improvement in your skin’s appearance. Most patients have reported their skin to feel softer, smoother, and younger looking. To get the best microdermabrasion results, we may advise that you schedule a series of treatments.
