DimondTome™ Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-invasive exfoliation method that utilizes natural diamond chips to remove and vacuum dead skin cells from the skin revealing fresh, healthy skin.   At Chapin Aesthetics we utilize the latest technology in microdermabrasion, DiamondTome™ skin resurfacing.  This crystal free treatment provides an unparallel approach to microdermabrasion that yields superior results.  This resurfacing method reduces signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and uneven texture.  A smoother and more vibrant skin is uncovered when the outer layer of the skin is gently polished away.  This procedure promotes new cell growth and vascular circulation under the skin resulting in healthier and firmer skin.  Microdermabrasion can be performed on the face, neck, chest, arms, back and hands.  Softer, smoother skin will be visible after one treatment and results will continue to advance after additional treatments.  There is not any irritation, redness or downtime associated with microdermabrasion and normal activities can be returned to immediately after treatment.


Dermaplaning is a safe, non-abrasive treatment that utilizes a scalpel to exfoliate the epidermis of dead skin cells and of fine vellus hair known as “peach fuzz.” The skin is held taut as light strokes are made across the skin at a forty-five degree angle with a scalpel revealing brighter and smoother skin. Dermaplaning allows products to penetrate deeper into the skin when the epidermal skin and facial hair is removed. Oil and dirt often gets trapped in the facial hair causing buildup that leads to dull looking skin. Many patients have concerns that dermaplaning may cause the hair to grow back thicker and dark but this is not the case. The hair will grow back with the same texture and color as it did previous to the treatment.

It is common for dermaplaning to be recommended prior to medical procedures such as chemical peels and laser treatments. This procedure can be performed as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other treatments to enhance results. Dermaplaning is extremely effective for treating rough, dry skin, mild acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. The results is a more refined, smooth and radiant appearance. Dermaplaning does not have any downtime or adverse effects making it a perfect option for many patients.

Collagen Mask

Plump up dry, dehydrated skin instantly with our collagen mask!  As we age and environmental factors take its toll collagen decreases in our skin causing visible signs of aging such as fines lines, wrinkles, dehydration and uneven texture.  Quench your skin’s thirst with intense, high concentrates of collagen that provides a protective layer to retain the skin’s natural moisture.  This is the perfect add on treatment following a dermaplane, microderm or microplane to give skin a replenished appearance.

Chemical Peels

Chapin Aesthetics has an array of peels to choose from, depending on your skin type. Regular chemical peels renew and refresh the skin to help to minimize breakouts. This is a form of superficial exfoliation; you will notice your skin looking brighter after just one treatment. Most clients notice that their makeup goes on smoother afterward. (Note that peels, exfoliation methods, and IPL™ may be done on the face or on other parts of the body. Please see your skin care specialist for pro-rated areas.)
