microdermabrasion treatment

Chemical Peels & Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, exfoliating treatment to accelerate the production of new skin cells, refine your pores, soften fine wrinkles and clarify hyperpigmentation or scarring.  Treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands and back. Microdermabrasion is a safe, therapeutic approach to skin care when used alone but has optimal results in combination with physician strength chemical peels to even out skin texture and lighten discoloration.

What is a Microdermabrasion treatment like?

Ohana offers two modalities for microdermabrasion.  One option is performed with a stream of fine crystals which are delivered across the skin's surface and then removed via vacuum, uprooting the damaged cells to reveal fresh, invigorated skin.   The other treatment option uses the crystal-free DiamondTome system using a diamond-tipped treatment wand to gently exfoliate the dry and damaged cells on the skin surface leaving skin smoother and more vibrant.  Our medical professionals will help determine which modality is right for you.

What results can I expect?

Poor health, diet, aging, stress, and the elements of nature can hinder the skin's cell renewal process. Microdermabrasion accelerates the cellular turnover process, bringing you closer to healthier, younger-looking skin. It allows you to gradually resurface your skin without the risks, side effects, and down time of more aggressive alternatives. In as little as 30 minutes, this gentle, technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Improvements in appearance and texture will occur with successive treatments. Microdermabrasion can be used aggressively to achieve dramatic results, but does not take the place of surgical or laser treatments.

 

How many Microdermabrasion treatments will I need?

To achieve maximum results, several treatments are recommended, typically scheduled 1 to 3 weeks apart. You will experience a progressive improvement throughout your treatment program.

How does my skin look immediately after treatment?

Microdermabrasion leaves your skin feeling soft and you will notice a healthy glow to your complexion. Due to the increase of circulation, a mild temporary blush surrounding the treated area may be the only evidence of your therapy.

 

What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical Peels are topically applied acids that aid in the restoration and rejuvenation of the skin's surface. They create a uniform and controlled shedding of several layers of the skin. Depending on the nature and depth of the peel, a significant number of layers can be exfoliated allowing new growth to be exposed, creating a fresh vibrant appearance.

 

Who are candidates for a Chemical Peel?

Your skin type and the results you are aspiring to achieve will determine if you are a candidate, as well as which class of peel is most appropriate for you.

 

What are the benefits?

Chemical peels can enhance your appearance by reducing blotchy and uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, freckling, age spots, sun-damaged skin, and acne scars in a relatively brief measure of time. Chemical peels accelerate the production of new cells. Enjoy fresh smooth skin - immediately after your first treatment!

 

What are the side effects?

Chemical peels have become increasingly popular because of the array of advantages and relative lack of complications. Side effects are rare and usually temporary. Some side effects include uneven pigmentation, redness, and very infrequent scarring if the skin is not cared for appropriately. Sun protection is crucial to minimize the risk of side effects. A treatment program of individually suited products and sun protection will benefit your skin's ability to maintain the results of the peel. You can decrease the likelihood of side effects by carefully following the instructions of your treatment provider.
