What is Diamond Microdermabrasion?

Diamond microdermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that uses a diamond tip to gently exfoliate the skin. Also referred to as diamond abrasion, this treatment can be used to address a variety of cosmetic concerns. By exfoliating damaged skin cells, we are able to reveal the healthy skin cells beneath. As a result, patients can enjoy a rejuvenated appearance without any surgery or invasive techniques. Plus, this treatment is ideal for all skin types. Diamond microdermabrasion can be used to address the following concerns:

  • Acne scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven tone or texture

How Much Does Diamond Microdermabrasion Cost?

The cost of your diamond microdermabrasion will vary by patient. The cost of this treatment depends on the area treated and the number of treatments required to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will take these factors into consideration in order to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing services like CareCredit® to help make your treatment more affordable.

What is the Diamond Microdermabrasion Treatment Like?

During the diamond microdermabrasion treatment, a handheld device is maneuvered across the skin as the diamond tip exfoliates the outermost layers of skin cells. This treatment requires no anesthetic and causes minimal discomfort. Diamond microdermabrasion is usually performed in just 30 minutes, but this time can vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated.

What is Recovery Like After Diamond Microdermabrasion?

There is no downtime or recovery period necessary after diamond microdermabrasion. Your skin may feel tight, dry, or appear slightly reddened, but these effects typically resolve within a day. You will be able to resume all usual activities immediately after your diamond microdermabrasion treatment. Using a moisturizer after treatment can help the skin return to normal sooner.

What Results Can I Expect from Diamond Microdermabrasion?

The results from your microdermabrasion treatment should be visible immediately, although you may have to wait for the skin to heal before you can notice the full benefits of treatment. For cosmetic concerns that are deep within the skin, such as acne scarring or wrinkles and lines, multiple treatment sessions may be needed. In fact, we typically recommend a series of diamond microdermabrasion treatments to all patients in order to achieve optimal results.
