What if I have sensitive skin or rosacea?
The variety of diamond tips and vacuum settings allows us to ajust the exfoliation range from gentle to more aggressive, depending on your needs. The treatment is entirely non-invasive, and no harsh chemicals or crystals are used.
Will I be red or need to stay home afterwards?
Absolutely not! It is very therapeutic, relaxing, and requires absolutely no downtime. Your skin will be soft, smooth, and silky when we are finished. It won’t make your skin photo-sensitive either, so it’s fine to use during the summer time.
What can I expect during the Diamond Glow treatment?
The treatment uses a closed-loop vacuum system handpiece to exfoliate the skin. After discussing what skin concerns need to be addressed, the aesthetician will recommend the appropriate topical infusion to treat the skin and stimulate new collagen growth. Each pass on the hand-held piece gently removes dead skin, thoroughly and evenly. Your skin immediately looks clearer and brighter. It is completely pain-free.
Does Diamond Glow actually work, or is it just a hype?
Your skin will have up to 70% more volume after just one session. Does Diamond Glow actually work, or is it just a hype? will make your skin firmer, thicker, and healthier. The debris from the treatment accumulates in a waste jar, so you can actually see what was removed!
How many treatments will it take to see a difference?
There will be a noticeable improvement immediately! Patients comment that fines lines are softened, enlarged pores are minimized, and if dryness is an issue, the skin takes on an instant dewiness. Everyone leaves with a beautiful glow. We recommend one treatment every 10-14 days for a series of six treatments. Some patients are pleased with a series of three treatments, and then come in every 4-6 weeks to maintain the skin in optimal condition.
Can I get other areas of my body treated?
Absolutely! At the Breslow Center we always include the neck when treating the face. We also perform this service on the décolleté, arms, legs, back, hands, and feet with the same smooth, silky results. It’s a wonderful way to treat the skin before an event when a little black dress and strappy sandals are required!
Alone or combined with other specialized treatments, microdermabrasion is a basic procedure that produces significant results. During this quick and painless treatment the outermost layer of your skin is gently removed, leaving your skin fresh and glowing!
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive, mechanical exfoliation procedure with no downtime. This popular treatment was originally created by an Italian doctor in 1987 and came to the states in the mid-nineties. Since then, its popularity has exploded.
What does it do?
The first type of machine exfoliates with crystals, removing 20-30% of the dead skin cells that sit on the surface of your skin. The newest machine, which the Breslow Center offers, is crystal-free or also known as “diamond tip.” This machine is four times more powerful, and can remove up to 80% of the upper layers of the stratum corneum. We have various tips of coarseness which can be customized depending on your skin type.
How will it help me?
Skins of different complexions and levels of sensitivity, including rosacea-prone skin, can undergo microdermabrasion. The treatment is beneficial for these common issues:
- Sun damage
- Mild acne, including whiteheads and blackheads
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores and shallow acne scars
Crystal vs. Diamond: What if my skin is really sensitive?
For sensitive skin the recommended machine is the diamond tip, since the crystal tip creates heat and inflammation, whereas the diamond does not. This makes it a superior choice for skins with vascular conditions and acne (grade I & II).
Do I need this treatment if I use products?
The extra bonus from receiving an in-house treatment such as this, is that afterwards the products that are used at home will penetrate 30-50% more effectively!
How often should I get microdermabrasion ?
The protocol for correction is once every two weeks for 6 visits, and once a month thereafter for maintenance. A lot of our patients visit us during their lunch break and go right back to work.

What can I expect on my first visit to The Medical Spa at The Breslow Center?
Your first visit will include a thorough skin evaluation including a Visia computerized skin analysis which allows us to see what is going on beneath the skin’s surface. It is important to identify this when determining what your treatment plan will entail. We will also educate you on the best skin care products and daily regimen options and how this use can dramatically improve your skin.
How frequently should I get a facial?

Absolutely. Through a combination of cutting edge technology and medical grade products, we are able to treat all skin types regardless of condition and sensitivity.
Can’t I just squeeze my pimples at home?
NO! Medical aestheticians are trained in extracting blemishes. If not done properly bacteria may spread causing chronic inflammation which may lead to scarring.
Do men get facials?
Many men receive regular facials to correct redness, hyper-pigmentation, acne and ingrown hairs, irritation from shaving and just to relax.
