Microdermabrasion in Columbus, Ohio is skin rejuvenation technology that has been around for many years. Our Columbus Facial Plastics team uses the innovative DiamondTome technology which produces superior results. Each DiamondTome microdermabrasion wand contains thousands of tiny diamonds which are used to exfoliate the skin. Resurfacing occurs as the wand is drawn across the skin, with no loose crystals or other abrasives that can contaminate you or your environment. This skin resurfacing microdermabrasion system achieves skin rejuvenation without the adverse effects of loose particles that can cause burning, irritation, and skin reactions. Powerful suction works simultaneously to complete the treatment. Even at its highest setting, DiamondTome Microdermabrasion is regarded as a gentler skin resurfacing system, and yet it provides more dramatic results than other skin care systems. Director of skin care services, Dina Maynard, views Microdermabrasion as an entry treatment to healthy skin as well as a complimentary procedure to facials and chemical peels.

Weeks to months depending on the number of treatments
Microdermabrasion improves wrinkles, skin texture, and color by removing the topmost layer of your skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. Skin resurfacing also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. The DiamondTome Microdermabrasion Skin Resurfacing treatment is non-invasive, pain-free, and typically requires little downtime after treatment.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is skin resurfacing which will reduce the effects of aging on your skin. Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll on the skin, creating lines, wrinkles and changes in texture and color. Not only is the face affected, but the neck, chest, cleavage, arms, and hands can also show signs of aging. Microdermabrasion can be beneficial for the resurfacing of skin. The equipment used in a medical office is different from that which is used in a salon. At Columbus Facial Plastics, we have specific microdermabrasion technology which is equipped with powerful suction that aids in your resurfacing results.
Is microdermabrasion a safe procedure?
Columbus Microdermabrasion performed at Columbus Facial Plastics at Sullivan Centre is a safe and therapeutic procedure. All skin care services provided at Columbus Facial Plastics at Sullivan Centre are done so under the recommendation and supervision of Dr. Stephen Nogan. If Dr. Nogan does not think you are a candidate for this procedure, he will suggest other treatment options. Our Skin Care Director, Dina Maynard, has decades of experience in the art of skin resurfacing. Dina is an expert in combining other facial procedures with Microdermabrasion in order to help you achieve your best skin.
Is there any downtime?
In most cases, patients can return to normal activities immediately following a microdermabrasion treatment. Oftentimes, patients even choose to have their Microdermabrasion during their lunch hour. If a deeper Microdermabrasion treatment is needed for acne scarring or deep facial scarring, there may be downtime for the skin to heal. This type of Microdermabrasion needed to achieve your best results will be discussed during your consultation.
