In the winter months, our skin can often take on a duller, less radiant appearance. You might have tried exfoliating at home and noticed some mild results, but you would like to see a brighter appearance to the surface of your skin. Just how can you achieve the radiant, glowing skin that you often see on the models on TV? One of the fastest, easiest ways to obtain healthier, more glowing skin is through a series of microdermabrasion procedures. Did you know that our medispa here in Tucson offers microdermabrasion treatments?

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating skin treatment used to reduce the appearance of superficial skin conditions. Some of the skin conditions addressed by microdermabrasion includes dull skin, flaky skin, mild acne, skin discoloration, blackheads, age spots, enlarged pores, blackheads and age spots.

What Type Of System Does Tula Wellness Use?

At our medispa we use the DiamondTomeTM System Wand that uses diamond chips to exfoliate the surface of the skin. The wand removes the topmost layer of the skin during the exfoliation process while simultaneously vacuuming the dead skin cells in a sterile manner.

Who Benefits From Microdermabrasion?

Our microdermabrasion process is safe and gentle enough for most skin types. People experiencing acne, rosacea, melasma, and uneven pigment in their skin would also benefit from a series of microdermabrasion treatments. Even pregnant women are able to undergo microdermabrasion treatments because no chemicals are involved.

What Are The Treatments Like?

This is a painless and noninvasive treatment, which means that you can go out in public immediately following a microdermabrasion procedure. Therefore, you can immediately resume your daily activities following your procedure. You may notice that your skin may look a somewhat flushed at first, but will return to its normal appearance after ten to thirty minutes. Your skin will feel softer, cleaner, and have a glowing appearance immediately following a treatment.

How Many Treatments Are Needed For Optimal Results?

The amount of treatments that you will need for optimal results depends upon the type of skin condition that you are treating. Some people choose to receive a treatment prior to a special event, and some people would like to receive a series of treatments in order to address a skin condition.

Couldn’t I Do This At Home?

Although there are some at-home microdermabrasion systems available on the market, they do not exfoliate as deeply and as thoroughly as our DiamondTomeTM System. Additionally, because we are trained medical professionals, you will be receiving the safest and most sterile treatments available. However, if you perform a treatment on yourself at home, you are more likely to infect your skin if your instrument isn’t properly sterilized.

If you shy away from chemical peels but would like to have healthier, more radiant skin, then microdermabrasion might be perfect for you. Microdermabrasion is gentle yet effective enough for even people with sensitive skin. Whether you would like to reduce the appearance of your fine lines or you would like to minimize the appearance of mild acne scars, microdermabrasion offers great results.
