Many patients are looking for ways to improve the look, color, and texture of their skin without the downtime typically associated with surgical procedures. Microdermabrasion is a simple, painless, non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure.

This skin care treatment is done by our licensed aesthetician using a combination of a fine abrasive tip and vacuum suction applied to the skin, removing the top layer of dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion helps diminish the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation (age spots), photodamage, as well as fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and shallow acne scars.

Microdermabrasion is the cornerstone of most skin care programs. Collagen is the body’s beauty protein. It prevents wrinkles from forming and comprises 70% of our skin. Collagen production declines with age and environmental damage, such as sun exposure and smoking. The result over time is the skin’s ability to maintain elasticity and retain moisture. With microdermabrasion, the number and size of fibroblasts, cells that make collagen, are increased. Patients also benefit from unclogged pores, a reduction of blackheads, and a more even skin tone. Patients find that their skin has a smoother texture and an overall healthier and more radiant look.


Microdermabrasion has many benefits for both men and women, which is why it has been such a trusted and popular treatment option for over 3 decades. The Fountain Medspa crystal-free microdermabrasion with patented DiamondTome™ achieves skin rejuvenation without the adverse effects of loose particles, burning, irritation, and adverse skin reactions. The precise diamond chip size and vacuum setting assure the appropriate amount of exfoliation in order to produce uniform results. The benefits of ongoing treatment include:

  • Exfoliation increases in cell turnover, resulting in a more youthful appearance
  • Reduces superficial hyperpigmentation/age spots
  • Smoothens fine lines and wrinkles
  • Extracts blackheads and whiteheads, reducing the appearance of pores
  • Allows high quality skincare products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen
  • Reduces acne and the scars left by acne
  • Lessens the appearance of stretch marks
  • Improves problems with ingrown hairs in men

Microdermabrasion Risk and Safety

Microdermabrasion works only on the superficial layers of the skin; serious side effects are very rare. Redness is the most common side effect and usually fades within a few hours. It isn’t unusual to experience some dryness and flakiness afterward, which typically resolves within a few days. Microdermabrasion may increase your sensitivity to the sun, so you should wear sunscreen.


You may resume your normal activities immediately following the treatment. Your skin may appear flushed immediately after the treatment, but it should return to normal within thirty30 minutes. Makeup may be applied directly after, making it a great lunchtime treatment.

Microdermabrasion Cost

You will notice a difference immediately after a single treatment of microdermabrasion, but for the best results, you should consider multiple treatments.
