1. A system for performing a skin treatment procedure, the system comprising:

  • a console including a manifold, the manifold being in fluid communication with a first fluid container and at least a second fluid container, the first fluid container and the at least the second fluid container being configured to contain a treatment material for a skin treatment procedure, wherein the treatment material comprises a liquid;

    a handpiece assembly comprising a tip, the tip being configured to contact a skin surface of a subject;

    a supply conduit placing the manifold of the console in fluid communication with the handpiece assembly, wherein a distal end of the supply conduit is configured to couple to the handpiece assembly;

    wherein the manifold is configured to control a flow of treatment material from the first fluid container and at least the second fluid container through the supply conduit; and

    a vacuum source;

    a waste conduit in fluid communication with the tip of the handpiece assembly to remove waste away from a skin surface of a subject during a skin treatment procedure, wherein the waste conduit is operatively coupled to the vacuum source; and

    wherein the system is configured to permit a user to select the treatment material from the first fluid container or the at least second fluid container to be delivered through the supply conduit to the handpiece assembly; and

    wherein, when the vacuum source is activated and the tip contacts the skin surface, a suction force is created within the waste conduit and along the tip, thereby removing waste from the skin surface via the waste conduit while drawing treatment material from the first fluid container or the second fluid container to the tip via the supply conduit.
