Microdermabrasion in Columbus, Ohio is an innovative skin rejuvenation technology. Our Columbus Facial Plastics team uses 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.

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 requires no downtime after treatment*.
Microdermabrasion can be paired with Facials, chemical peels and other treatments in order to enhance skin health progress.
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 a likely victim of these changes, but the neck, chest, cleavage, arms, and hands may be affected as well. Microdermabrasion can be beneficial for resurfacing of all skin. The difference between microdermabrasion in a clinical setting and in a salon is the equipment used. At Columbus Facial Plastics, we use specific microdermabrasion technology which is equipped with powerful suction that aids in your resurfacing experience.
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.
Is there any downtime?
In most cases, patients are able to 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 in order for the skin to heal. This type of microdermabrasion needed to achieve your best results will be discussed during your consultation.
