Facial exfoliation can be performed chemically with chemical peels, mechanically, with Microdermabrasion or Dermaplaning & Enzymes.
How do I prepare for this procedure?
Prior to your appointment, you should avoid Retin A, Acid Peels, heavy exfoliation, and any other treatment or condition that would make skin sensitive for the week before your microdermabrasion/dermaplaning appointment.
How many Microdermabrasion treatments do I need?
For best results, 6-8 sessions are recommended, one every one to two weeks. Following your initial treatment, your skin maintenance program should include an additional treatment every 1-3 months. Most people should see dramatic improvements after just a few treatments, but stick with it for the best results! Severe skin problems, such as deep acne scars and dark spots will take several treatments before any improvement is noticeable.

Knot Tense uses crystal-free microdermabrasion to remove the top most layer of dead skin, leaving more subtle and vibrant skin.
The natural diamond chips gently abrade the skin while dead skin cells are vacuumed away in a sterile controlled manner. This process leaves a smoother texture and promotes new growth.

Diamond Microdermabrasion Facial

The diamond microdermabrasion at Knot Tense gives your skin three passes of the face & neck with our Crystal Free Microdermabrasion machine. A Standard Microdermabrasion is often recommended when accumulated dead skin cells make your face look bumpy, course, and/or very dry. These dead skin cells clog pores, trapping dirt and oils that become blackheads, pimples, and other facial blemishes. Our Microdermabrasion begins with a deep cleanse. A personalized mask and selection of the highest quality skin care products follows the passes with our Crystal Free Microdermabrasion machine to leave your skin fresh and nourished. Includes a head & neck massage.
Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment for freshening and vitalizing skin, and may also be used to enhance the absorption of a number of plant/chemical peels. Along with sloughing away dead skin cells, dermaplaning can help reduce the visibility of acne scarring and slight wrinkling, as well as do away with extraneous vellous (translucent) hairs on the face. After Dermaplaning, topical products are more efficiently absorbed into the skin, providing you with a higher return on your investment in quality skin care products.
Furthermore, it is recommended that the procedure be done every 3 to 4 weeks (or once a month), which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.
