Microdermabrasion & Extractions

Book an appointment with SKIN by Saarah using SetMore

Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is a newer procedure, but one that quickly gained popularity as a crystal-free microdermabrasion option. Instead of using crystals to exfoliate the skin, a wand with a diamond-encrusted tip is passed over the skin. The diamond tip abrades the skin and, like the crystal version, the exfoliated particles are then vacuumed away through the same wand.

This procedure lessens the likelihood of particles getting into and causing damage to the eyes or mouth and is regarded as an especially safe form of treatment. Not only that, it is also known to be very effective on deep acne scars or old stretch marks.

If you’re looking for fast, reliable treatment for skin issues like wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, uneven skin tone, or stretch marks, you might consider getting this procedure.

Our Gold Package uses steam and ultrasonic cleansing for blackhead extractions and congested skin.
