- Are you looking for a cosmetic procedure that is completely no downtime?
The Science: What is medical microdermabrasion?
Discover how you can have smoother, more toned skin with a new skin renewal treatment called "DiamondTome.™ It's not a chemical, laser, or surgical procedure. It's gentle, safe and affordable technology. The procedure requires only 30 minutes of your time, after which you can return to your daily activities.
DiamondTome™ is an advanced microdermabrasion machine that removes the top most layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips. At the same time, a suction pressure vacuums the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.
Resurfacing using DiamondTome™ is similar to particle microdermabrasion (which uses very small crystals) in its results, but without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction. Unlike other microdermabrasion treatments, the DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System does not use loose abrasives that can contaminate you or the environment.
The Solution: Medical Microdermabrasion in Stonington CT
Treatments using the DiamondTome™ System are painless yet effective. An adjustable vacuum and the coarseness of the DiamondTome™ Wands control the degree of treatment. After a series of treatments, the skin will adapt to the treatments so that coarser wands and a more aggressive vacuum can be used. Subsequently, the treatments become more and more effective. The DiamondTome™ System is more effective and gentler than other microdermabrasion systems (such as the "Crystal Peel", "Power Peel", "Derma Peel", "Mega Peel", etc.).
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after the treatment but should return to normal in 10 to 30 minutes. Normal activities may be resumed immediately. Your skin will have a radiant glow, and feel softer, smoother and cleaner after the first treatment, and will continue to improve with additional treatments.
DiamondTome™ Medical Microdermabrasion can be used in combination with other treatments, and requires no down time after treatment. The DiamondTome™ treatment regimen is repeated every two weeks in a series of treatments, usually between four and ten, depending on the condition being treated and the type of skin. The DiamondTome™ System works equally well on all skin colors.
Benefits of DiamondTome™ medical microdermabrasion include:
- renews and smoothes skin texture
- evens out skin tone and superficial pigmentation
- lightens brown-colored "age" and "sun" spots
- softens fine lines
- softens acne scars
- minimizes blackheads, whiteheads; and enlarged and oily pores
Medical microdermabrasion performed in Dr. Duke's office is different than microdermabrasion done at a spa -- because she uses more powerful equipment than is allowed for use at a spa. While DiamondTome™ medical microdermabrasion requires no "downtime," the treatments can be more aggressive. There is an actual biological effect on the skin that is treated with this type of equipment, rather than just a mild exfoliation. Medical grade microdermabrasion with the DiamondTome™ is a medical skin treatment, not just a spa experience that feels good.

This process is called a Product Infusion Treatment. Imagine the microdermabrasion as preparing your skin for enhanced penetration of these active ingredients. The products can now really get into your skin cells, and improve the way those skin cells are working--to make your skin look more youthful.
