Microdermabrasion – Tampa, Florida

Wish you had an even and flawless skin tone? Microdermabrasion can help you achieve just that. If you have dull skin, uneven tone or texture, age spots, or spots left from acne, microdermabrasion can help you repair all of that. This treatment is nonsurgical and carefully exfoliates your skin. With a few routine treatments, you can have smoother, brighter, and more evenly toned skin.

You may have heard of doing a microdermabrasion treatment at home. At Skin Radiance Med Spa, we are able to go a bit deeper into your skin than you could safely do at home. We always use the utmost care and will listen to your requests and concerns attentively.

Microdermabrasion can also help your skin absorb any anti-aging treatments you are in the process of using. This means you will see more benefits from the pin and some additional anti-aging treatments.

Another great part about this treatment is that no chemicals or anesthesia are needed! This treatment should not hurt you at all. You may feel some discomfort during the procedure, but nothing too strenuous. Your skin will also feel a little tight after the treatment is over, but only for a few hours.

The process is simple, yet can do so much for your skin. A suctioning wand is brushed on your face. This wand will either have a crystal or diamond tip. As the wand goes across your skin, dead skin cells will be exfoliated and vacuumed away. Not only does this get rid of dull, dead skin, but it also helps blood circulation. The improvement of blood circulation also brings more collagen production. Collagen is responsible for keeping your skin youthful, so we all want more of that.

Crystal Microdermabrasion

Crystal microdermabrasion removes the outer layer of the skin (the dead skin cells). The crystal-tipped wand does this by creating a forceful use of friction and heat. A high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals is sprayed onto your skin. This quickly washes off any dead skin cells and dirt from the area. As the crystal-tipped tool washes away dead skin cells, it also sucks up what is being removed. This is the traditional treatment and has won a lot of fans over the years.

Diamond Microdermabrasion

A diamond microdermabrasion treatment simply means that a diamond-tipped wand is used. This treatment is safer for areas around the mouth or eyes. There is a chance of crystal particles going into the mouth or the eyes, which is why diamond microdermabrasion might be suggested for your treatment.

A diamond-tipped wand works differently than a crystal-tipped wand. Instead of blasting away dead skin cells, a diamond treatment sucks away the dull skin and dirt. No crystal wash is used. This is also why diamond microdermabrasion is safer to use around the eyes and mouth. The diamond treatment also allows for your technician to have more control over the pressure on certain areas of your face. This might help you target certain areas better than you could with a crystal treatment.

We do both crystal and diamond dermabrasion at Skin Radiance Med Spa. If you have any questions about either, feel free to contact us today.
