Correct years of damage with state-of-the-art microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion Jacksonville The skin is susceptible to a number of factors, all of which begin to show their effect in time. After years of exposure to sun, stress, and other factors, the skin will change in tone and texture, elasticity will decrease, and fine lines and wrinkles will form. These concerns occur not only on the face, but also on areas such as the chest, neck, and hands. Jacksonville residents who love spending time in the sunshine but want to continue to enjoy beautiful skin can benefit from microdermabrasion treatments with dermatologist Dr. Mary Pentel.

Microdermabrasion is the non-invasive, gentle removal of the outer layer of skin, which is largely made up of dead skin cells. Beneath this layer are healthy new cells waiting to be revealed. Microdermabrasion could be considered “skin polishing” because the skin is not actually broken. With this form of resurfacing, the elastic tissue beneath the skin’s surface is also stimulated, leading to firmer, younger looking skin.

Dr. Pentel is proud to treat her patients with the latest technology. At The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology, we use the DiamondTome skin resurfacing system to promote beautiful, healthy skin. Unlike older systems that use tiny crystal particles to abrade the skin, the DiamondTome uses a specialized wand encrusted with diamonds and high-powered suction to create uniform results without side effects such as irritation or burning.

There are several benefits to DiamondTome microdermabrasion in our Jacksonville dermatology office:
  • Blotchy skin coloring is diminished
  • Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed
  • The skin becomes more uniform through the reduction of sun spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Pores look smaller
  • Oily skin is easier to control
  • Superficial scars become less noticeable
  • Makeup is more easily applied on the smooth canvas
  • Whiteheads and blackheads are reduced
  • The overall health of the skin is improved
DiamondTome microdermabrasion is a wonderful alternative to chemical peel treatments. Depending on skin type and the condition we are treating, we will design a plan to include a specified number of treatment sessions. Many of our patients achieve their desired outcome in four to eight sessions, scheduled every few weeks. After the initial concern has been corrected, results can be maintained with touch-up treatments scheduled every month or two.
