Crystal Free Microdermabrasion

3An excellent treatment for a smoother and more luminous appearance, Microdermabrasion improves clogged pores, skin texture, and skin discolorations by removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving skin more supple and vibrant.

History of Microdermabrasion:

In the mid-90′s, a skin care technique using aluminum oxide powder for microdermabrasion was developed in Italy. This process used a vacuum and a small orifice to accelerate the powder. Aluminum oxide abraded the skin and the vacuum cleaned out blocked pores.

The technique proved effective, however, it had some disadvantages:

  • Aluminum oxide was left floating around in the air and imbedded in the skin
  • The crystals were left in the hair and clothes of both the patient and clinician.

Dr. Leslie Gerstman performs “crystal-free microdermabrasion” with the DiamondTone™ Skin Resurfacing system. This system is an evolution in microdermabrasion, offering a twenty-first century skin care technology for applying the millennia-old technique of dermabrasion.

By eliminating the powders and crystals (aluminum oxide and salt), DiamondTone™ has made skin rejuvenation the clean, controlled procedure it should be. Dr. Gerstman regards the DiamondTone™ system as being more gentle and effective than other exfoliating systems, even at higher settings.

Crystal Free Microdermabrasion: FAQ

Take advantage of the latest 21st century technology that has revolutionized the beauty industry here at Medical Aesthetics. Crystal free microdermabrasion is one of our innovative services providing amazing results with as little discomfort as possible.


How does microdermabrasion improve the aspect of the skin?

In order to understand how microdermabrasion works, first you need to know more about the natural skin cells’ growth cycles. As skin regenerates every 28 days, the new cells tend to push towards the upper surface of the skin. This process can cause congested and enlarged pores or create bumps in certain areas of the face. Microdermabrasion uses an exfoliating tip to vacuum these impurities and make room for the healthy epidermis.

How long does the procedure last?

Depending on the area of the body that will undergo the exfoliation, the procedure can last up to 30 or 40 minutes.

How long is the recovery period after receiving Microdermabrasion treatment?

The procedure doesn’t have a long recovery period, so you can return to your daily routine following the treatment. We recommend that you apply a moisturizer and sunscreen to avoid side effects resulting from sun exposure.

How long until I notice the first effects?

In general, most of our patients have reported feeling softer, smoother skin right after the first treatment. Nevertheless, if your aim is to reduce the visibility of moderate to severe lines, then you might need at least three treatments before you see any improvement.

How many treatments do you need for the desired results?

On the average, patients report visible results after their third treatment. However, results may vary depending on your aesthetic needs and the characteristics of your skin.

Is microdermabrasion a synonym for dermabrasion?

No, as dermabrasion refers to a rougher and harsher exfoliating technique that is typically performed in an operating room. On the other hand, microdermabrasion can be carried out in Dr. Gerstman’s office.

What are its side effects?

While the skin could appear flushed after the cosmetic treatment, don’t get alarmed as this is a natural effect and it will subside in approximately 12 hours. Besides the rosy appearance, you could also experience a tingling sensation or feel the skin tighter at the treatment site.

What areas can be treated with microdermabrasion?

In general, microdermabrasion is employed to correct skin imperfections found on the face and neck. However, it has been utilized with equal effectiveness on other areas of the body, such as the shoulders, hands, elbows, chest, and knees.

What does microdermabrasion mean?

Crystal free microdermabrasion is a fast, safe, and effective form of exfoliating, guaranteed to leave your skin softer, brighter, smoother, and more refreshed. We use a DiamondTone™ Skin Resurfacing system so you can enjoy the full array of benefits from the procedure.

Who is the ideal candidate for the procedure?

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive treatment that treats various skin conditions and imperfections, including dry skin, blotchiness, congested pores, blemishes, sun damage, flaky skin, thickened skin, dull-looking skin, and uneven skin. Everyone can benefit from microdermabrasion, irrespective of the color and type of their skin. In fact, even people with healthy skin  may notice a warm glow following the procedure.
