our crystal free system gently sweeps away dead skin cells, giving you a smoother and more youthful look and feel. Crystal Free Microdermabrasion, using the DiamondTip™ System, is a medical technique for removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving it supple and vibrant. This is accomplished by gently abrading the skin with a variety of stainless-steel tips imbedded with laser cut diamond chips, while at the same time using suction to remove the dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production.
DiamondTip microdermabrasion is like particle microdermabrasion and chemical peels in its results, but without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction.
Treatments are painless yet effective. Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after the treatment but should return to normal in 10–30 minutes. Your skin will look and feel smoother and more youthful even after the first treatment and will continue to improve with additional treatments.
an initial treatment series is usually six sessions, although even a single treatment produces beautiful visible results. Treatments are scheduled about three weeks apart. As dead skin
cells will always continue to accumulate, most patients schedule maintenance treatments every few months or as needed. Your skin may appear light pink after the treatment. This soon passes. Both moisturizers and makeup may be immediately applied. We apply sunscreen after each treatment, and recommended sunscreen use on the treated areas daily.
who is a candidate for microdermabrasion?
patients who desire a smooth, refreshed appearance to their skin, those sensitive to the chemicals involved in other treatments, or those not responding well to acne medications typically are good candidates for microdermabrasion. The treatment is not lengthy, and the recovery period is short. Microdermabrasion is an excellent choice for all skin types. Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment prior to FotoFacial Skin Rejuvenation – allowing an increased penetration of the light–based treatment. Patients who are pregnant or have pacemakers CAN safely be treated with Microdermabrasion.

can I go back to work after a microdermabrasion?
microdermabrasion is a wonderful alternative to laser or harsh chemical peels because it is non–invasive, non–surgical and requires no down time after treatment. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after treatment, and your skin is free of redness, irritation and particle contamination.
can I have microdermabrasion before a FotoFacial?
yes! microdermabrasion is a gentle, yet effective treatment. It is often used in conjunction with other treatments and compliments the skin care regime prescribed for you by Dr. Tanne. microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment prior to FotoFacial Skin Rejuvenation – allowing an increased penetration of the light–based treatment.
plush collagen microneedling
as we grow old, our skin ages and becomes loose and less elastic. The main reason for this is the reduction in fibroblast cells, which are building blocks of collagen proteins that help keep our cells strong and connected. Aging results in wrinkles and sagging, which makes our skin appear very dull — but there is a way to combat this process through microneedling. Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy, which is a safe and chemical-free method to trigger new collagen production.
microneedling offers a safe, comfortable and effective alternative to laser resurfacing. This treatment is indicated for all skin types, and when performed in a series, provides great results with little to no downtime.
What is micro needling?
microneedling therapy is a very simple procedure that uses a hand-controlled device with tiny, shallow needles to puncture your outer layer of skin to create a controlled skin injury. This damage to the skin will stimulate your body to produce new collagen and elastin. The freshly produced collagen will rejuvenate your skin by filling in fine lines, resulting in an overall improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin by removing the wrinkles, scars and stretch marks that can make you look younger as you age. Additionally, microneedling is not restricted to the face. It can be used on many other body parts, such as arms, legs, neck, back, hands and abdomen.
prior to treatment, numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes. The treatment is customized to the area being treated. We use a microneedling pen, which provides a precisely controlled stamping method to reach a set depth in the skin while minimizing excess damage to the epidermis. The automatic vibrating function increases the effectiveness of treatment by increasing absorption of products while reducing pain and discomfort.
one microneedling session generally takes 30 minutes. At first, your skin will appear a little bit red - similar to a light sunburn, but your skin will return to normal in a couple of days. The natural growth of collagen takes place over the next weeks and months.
how many numbers of treatments does one need?
for wrinkles or stretch marks, depending on the severity, you may need 4 to 8 microneedling treatments to achieve optimal results. Treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to ensure the health and safety of your skin. The risk involved in microneedling treatments are minimal. After a treatment, your skin may appear somewhat dry and/or pink, which will typically subside within a few days to one week.
what skin conditions can be treated with micro needling?
- stretch marks;
- acne scarring;
- skin tone;
- fine lines;
- loose skin;
- large pores;
regardless of your skin color or type is, microneedling is the best treatment you can have to have to make your skin look fresh and younger

plush chemical peels
we offer a range of customized in-office dermal peels that will address many skin concerns such as sun damage, age spots and acne scars. Our licensed aesthetician will decide which peel and strength will give you the results you desire and leave you with skin looking fresh and healthy.
our plushpeel is a potent yet gentle next-generation revitalizing peel designed to provide controlled exfoliation of damaged skin with significant visible results after just one treatment. This powerful yet non-invasive chemical resurfacing procedure uses a synergistic combination of multiple active ingredients to improve the quality and appearance of facial skin.
plushpeel achieves a smoother, tighter and younger-looking face without surgery, injections or significant downtime. PlushPeel achieves a smoother, tighter and younger-looking face without surgery, injections or significant downtime.
the plush signature peel is a superficial chemical peel utilizing a combination of weak acids to simultaneously help brighten skin with reduced risk of post–inflammatory hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin). The peel is administered in a series of 4–6 treatments every 2–3 weeks for enhanced skin brightening and smoothing of the skin.
the plush signature peel helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots (hyperpigmentation). These peels use weak acids combined with potent non–acidic ingredients that do not burn, wound or injure the skin, and for this reason can be used to treat patients with darker complexions. While some patients may feel a mild tingling sensation from the peeling solution, the treatment is virtually painless. Although most patients experience peeling of their skin, not every patient will notice this. If you do not notice actual peeling, please know that you are still receiving all the benefits of the plush signature peel, such as: stimulation of collagen production, improvement of skin tone and texture, and diminishment of fine lines, pigmentation and breakouts.
have you ever wondered why some people have flawless faces? If you dream of having baby smooth skin again, consider dermaplaning. It’s perfect for people who want brighter, smoother, glowing and more youthful skin without any downtime or discomfort.
dermaplaning is a completely painless treatment performed by our skilled, licensed aesthetician. The treatment is done using a small, sterile blade and a soft touch, scraping the surface of the skin using light feathery strokes, to remove peach fuzz (vellus) hair, and the top layer of dead skin.
dermaplaning is completed quickly, usually in less than 30 minutes. It has no side effects or complications and delivers amazing results. Along with removing old, dead skin cells, dermaplaning reduces the appearance of common skin problems such as wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores and fine lines while stimulating new skin cell growth.
it is a wonderful choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, as well as visible facial veins. Dermaplaning is also an excellent choice for women who are pregnant and cannot use any chemical peels or harsh treatments but want healthier looking skin. Not everyone is a candidate and we do not recommend this treatment for patients with active or cystic acne.
after your treatment your face will have a smoother texture and fresher appearance. Facial hair returns softly and will not appear coarser or darker because of the treatment. Your skin care products will work better as they are able to penetrate directly into the skin without having to work their way through layers of dead skin. Makeup will effortlessly glide over your face since it’s now smoother.
now you can have that movie star quality skin you have always desired.
we often recommend having a chemical peel immediately after dermaplaning. Adding a light chemical peel helps free pores of impacted debris and provides optimal results. It is ideal for creating the “red carpet glam glow” with no downtime for most patients.
for the best outcome we usually recommend several dermaplaning treatments scheduled about 4 weeks apart, as the process removes any dead or damaged skin cells from the prior three-week period.
the best news about dermaplaning is that there is no down time required for recovery. Skin won’t even look irritated, inflamed or red, so friends and family members won’t know what has suddenly rejuvenated and revitalized your skin. There is no discomfort and no need for application of any special topical creams or solutions, except for sunscreen, following the procedure. Don’t forget that it is very important to apply sunscreen containing zinc oxide daily after this treatment.
dermaplaning should never be done at home. If you are considering this procedure, make sure it is done by a trained, licensed aesthetician. Surgical scalpels are much sharper that the average razor and the technique requires a delicate touch, making it nearly impossible to do at home. Save yourself a few cuts on the face and leave it to the professionals.
