How Does Vibradermabrasion Work?
Vibraderm tackles dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, acne scars, and age spots. It can even help to elleviate or minimize dry or oily skin. Like other treatments such as MicroDermabrasion, Vibraderm works by sloughing off the dull, damaged top layers of the skin, Vibraderm lets the healthy glow of the newer layers appear, But Vibraderm goes farther than other treatments by also encouraging new collage production. This means that not only will the surface of your skin look better, but that it will also be more firmly supported by the deeper layers. Skin becomes less slack, and more firm and supple.
In addition, Vibraderm creates less redness and discomfort, making it the preferred treatment in studies comparing it with MicroDermabrasion. When polled, 95% of people asked said they preferred Vibraderm.
How Does Vibradermabrasion Difer From Older Microdermabrasion?
In the past, microdremabrasion machines have used particles of aluminum oxide or other crystals to "Sandblast" the skin. These older machines, including the Diamond Tome™ (which is now considered older technology), treat a very small spot size, making it difficult to treat a large area. Both crystal-type machines and Diamond Tome™ are rough and irritating to the skin.
Older machines are outdated and have been shown to be dangerous and toxic because of the crystals or contaminants. Aluminum oxide and crystal microdermabrasion machines have been shown to leave residues in the skin causing inflammatory reactions and contact dermatitis and actually worsening the skin condition one is trying to improve.
Further, studies have shown aluminum oxide and crystal machines cause respiratory tract problems for both patients and technicians. VIBRADERM USES NO CRYSTALS AND USES NO SUCTION! These older and out-dated machines that use crystals and suction can cause erythema (redness) for a couple days to weeks. Further the “suction” component of these older machines has been known to cause and worsen blood vessel formation on the skin.
How Do Vibradermabrasion Treatments Feel?
Vibraderm uses a unique, vibrating stainless steel paddle that exfoliates the skin in four simple passes. It has four different paddle sizes and can be adjusted to work at different levels – this way many different parts of the face and body can be treated. Vibraderm works well on the face, the neck, the chest and the hands.
Unlike other methods which use Aluminum Oxide to “sandblast” the surface of the skin, Vibraderm’s unique paddles have fixed surface abrasives. This means that the treatment is much cleaner with less “mess,” and that larger areas can be treated at once.
Treatments typically take less than 30 minutes to perform and require virtually no downtime. This makes Vibraderm easy to fit into busy schedules and ensures that people can get back to their active lifestyles. Sometimes a temporary redness will be visible for up to one hour after treatment.
What Can Vibradermabrasion Treat?
Vibraderm uses “sonic vibration technology“, the state of the art, and the most expensive machine in the industry. The Vibraderm hand-piece uses a large surface coated with fixed abrasives.
Large areas can be treated evenly with less irritation. Areas treated can include most any place on the body. The face and neck remain the most popular areas. Patients have also had their backs, arms, hands, knees, legs, and thighs treated. Nearly any part of the body can be treated.
Some patients and clinics have found Vibraderm useful for cellulite smoothing. Vibraderm has been shown to be an excellent complimentary treatment with Thermage Non-Surgical Rejuvenation. It has been shown to be an excellent smoothing and exfoliation method for acne, acne scarring and other scars.
Vibradermabrasion can improve keratosis pilaris (the fine permanent goose bump type lesions on arms and legs). Syringomas and hyperplastic sebaceous glands on the face also frequently respond to Vibraderm.

What are skin tags?
Skin tags are soft flaps of skin that vary in size from very tiny to the size of a pencil eraser tip. They do not cause pain unless they become twisted, irritated, or inflamed. Skin tags are likely to grow on skin surfaces that are hot, moist, or frequently rubbed. Skin tags usually appear around the neck, under the arms, under the breasts, in groin creases, and on the inside of the upper thigh area. The reason skin tags form is not known.
How we treat them?
Using our Fischer TS-1 epilator we apply Dr. Michael Bono's "blend method" to effectively and permanently remove skin tags on all parts of the body. This approach is the safest and least painful, due to the fact that the area coagulates immediately from the light electric current being applied during the treatment.
