What is skin resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing (also known as microdermabrasion) is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it more supple and vibrant. Skin Resurfacing also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Skin Resurfacing treatments are administered by a trained aesthetician. Skin Resurfacing can reduce the effects of aging on our skin. Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll on the skin, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Not only is the face affected by these changes, but the neck, chest, cleavage, arms and hands may be as well.
How does DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing work?
Safe, clean, precise, and effective, the DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing wand removes the outer layer of skin (stratum corneum) by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled method. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. A wonderful alternative or compliment to chemical peels, the DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing treatment is non-invasive, non-surgical, pain-free and requires no down time from work or social activities after treatment. Your skin will appear flushed immediately after treatment but should return to normal within 30 minutes. Normal activities may be resumed immediately.
What are the benefits of DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing?
DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing offers benefits to anyone who wants to improve specific skin conditions and rejuvenate the overall health and appearance of their skin. Ideal for a special event and for people on the go, exfoliation treatments using the diamond tipped wands offer the following exceptional benefits:
- Rejuvenates sun damaged skin on the face, neck and upper chest (décolleté), shoulders, back, arms, hands, and legs (body wand used for other areas).
- Reduces age spots on face and body (such as sun spots on your hands).
- Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
- Minimizes blotchy skin coloring.
- Reduce acne and superficial scars from past injury.
- Extracts blackheads and whiteheads.
- Controls oily skin.
- Reduces size of pores.
- Improves overall skin health.
Why choose DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing?
DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing is better than traditional microdermabrasion that uses chemical powders and crystals for many reasons, including:
- Exfoliation occurs only as the wand is drawn across the skin.
- No loose crystals or other abrasives that contaminate you or your environment.
- Even at its highest settings, DiamondTome is regarded as a gentler resurfacing system yet provides more dramatic results than other skin care systems.
- Achieve skin rejuvenation without the adverse effects of loose particles, burning, redness, irritation, and skin reactions.
- The precise diamond wand chip size and vacuum settings assure the appropriate amount of exfoliation that will produce uniform results.
Leading facial plastic surgeons and dermatologists regard the DiamondTome system as being more gentle and affective than other exfoliating systems, even at higher settings. The length of the treatment and number of treatments vary depending on skin type and condition. Results are gradual but highly effective. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment and will continue to improve with additional treatments. Treatment series vary from 4 to 10 sessions depending on the type of skin and skin condition being treated.
Obagi Blue Peel®
The Obagi Blue Peel is a procedure that removes thin, surface layers of aged and damaged skin and promotes the creation of healthy new ones. The process smoothes the surface of the skin, improves skin tone and color, diminish wrinkles and shrinks pore size. Unlike some chemical peels, Dr. Scheiner can control the peel process and the depth the Blue Peel reaches in the skin.
The Obagi Blue Peel is usually used in conjunction with the Obagi Nu-Derm skin care system.
The Obagi Blue Peel, if repeated over a period of time, can achieve the same result as a deeper chemical peel or a laser. Healing occurs usually in just 7-10 days.
The Obagi Blue Peel effectively corrects many skin conditions, including:
- Sun damaged skin
- Enlarged pores
- Age spots and superficial pigmentation
The Obagi Blue Peel procedure takes less than an hour and does not typically require sedation. Your doctor will apply the Blue Peel to your face and possibly to your neck. You’ll feel a mild burning sensation that generally lasts only a few minutes. You’ll likely experience a bluish tint to your skin that usually washes off in 12 to 24 hours.
Following the procedure, you’ll experience light swelling. Within two to three days, your skin will begin to peel. This peeling continues over the next several days. By the seventh to tenth day, your skin should be healed.
Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin’s appearance should continue to improve for the next four to six weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful looking. Your doctor will advise you on how many peels are needed to give you the desired result.
Serious complications with Obagi Blue Peel are extremely rare, but like any medical procedure, it does have some risks. Going to an experienced specialist can significantly minimize the risks. The vast majority of our patients are extremely happy with their appearance after Obagi Blue Peel, however, we cannot guarantee you will have the results you desire.
If you decide that laser Obagi Blue Peel is an option for you, you will be given additional information about the procedure that will allow you to make an informed decision about whether to proceed. Be sure you have all your questions answered to your satisfaction.
Obagi Skin Care
Age and environmental factors such as sun, stress and pollution cause the formation of new skin cells to slow down. This means old skin cells stay on the surface longer and skin becomes less healthy. Signs of unhealthy skin include fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and age spots, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity and loss of natural moisture.
Obagi Nu-Derm® System
The Obagi Nu-Derm System accelerates the turnover of new cells. This system penetrates below the skin’s surface to correct damage in all layers of the skin, helping the skin look and act younger and healthier.
- Pushes fresher cells to the surface faster, for smoother skin, reduced wrinkles and increased tolerance.
- Reduces mottled pigmentation (freckles, melasma, and age spots) and prevents the appearance of new pigmentation.
- Promotes more uniform cells at the deepest layer for better skin structure and balanced, even skin tone.
- Helps increase collagen and elastin for firmer, more resilient skin.
- Increases the skin’s natural hydration and circulation for a supple, healthy glow.
What to Expect
Your doctor will discuss with you the optimal treatment regimen. You will use the product at home. You can expect to experience four phases as your skin transforms to a younger, healthier appearance. The length of each phase depends on your age, skin type, amount of damage and how closely you follow your doctor’s recommendations for treatment.
During the first phase, which usually lasts about 6 weeks, the damaged top layer of skin is replaced with a new layer of healthy skin cells. Freckles, age spots, and dark patches begin to fade. You might experience flaking, redness and dryness, and wrinkles and acne may actually look worse.
Soon after that, though, you’ll begin to notice significant improvements. Your pores will tighten and wrinkles will diminish. Freckles and age spots will lighten even more and the redness and flaking will subside.
During the third phase, others will begin to notice the improvement in your skin, which will be firmer and more resilient, with an even color tone and natural hydration.
Phase four is follow-up care. You’ll want to continue to use the Obagi Nu-Derm System to maintain the results you achieved and prevent future damage.

Jane Iredale™ The Skin Care Makeup®
What is Jane Iredale mineral makeup?
Jane Iredale is a skin care makeup line made from natural minerals that are crushed to form microscopic crystals. These crystals overlap each other to form a filter that protects the skin while allowing the skin to breathe and function normally. Jane Iredale is recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and skin care professionals.
What can Jane Iredale do for my skin?
Jane Iredale is healthy for the skin and poses minimum allergy risk because it does not clog pores (non-comedogenic) and uses pure pigment without fillers, such as talc. No fragrance, synthetic dyes, and preservatives are used in Jane Iredale. It also provides broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection up to SPF 20. Jane Iredale offers complete coverage of skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and redness resulting from treatments such as laser resurfacing and chemical peels. Also, as the minerals are inert, our makeup does not support the growth of bacteria; therefore, there is very little risk of cross-contamination like other makeup can cause. Products are not tested on animals.
What kinds of products are available?
The mineral makeup line includes many shades of foundation (loose, pressed, and liquid), blush, lip products, eye products, concealers, and facial sprays. Accessories are also available, such as makeup bags and brushes.
Are minerals appropriate for skin allergies?
Minerals are very beneficial for those with sensitive skin. Since Jane Iredale uses ingredients that have health benefits, most people can use this makeup without any problems.
Does Jane Iredale have sufficient coverage?
Our micronized mineral bases are four products in one: foundation, powder, concealer, and sunscreen and will camouflage almost any skin discoloration. Minerals provide excellent coverage, and Jane Iredale offers a variety of makeup brushes that allow complete control over the level of coverage desired. The end result is an opaque finish that does not feel heavy.
Does Jane Iredale need reapplication during the day?
Minerals are the perfect makeup for clients who do not have time for reapplication. With the proper application techniques, the makeup will last all day. How does Jane Iredale feel on the skin?
Jane Iredale foundations are formulated to feel light-weight on the skin because it does not contain talc. Traditional makeup can feel heavy on the skin because of the unnatural ingredients and fillers used.
