A unique dermabrasion technique using diamond tip technology to smooth away fine lines, refine pore size and minimize skin imperfections. This non-invasive treatment removes the dead and damaged skin cells from the epidermis to stimulate a rejuvenating response from the skin’s deeper layers.
Diamond Peel Treatments are the best option for those who do not want any downtime after their treatments, as there are minimal side effects and results may be visible after only one session. A treatment series is highly recommended for clients seeking the best results to address skin aging and resurfacing.
Microdermabrasion is the perfect complement to Photo Rejuvenation treatments. Scheduling microdermabrasion treatments between your photo rejuvenation sessions will help to exfoliate the skin and promote new cell growth. This combination will help prolong the effects of your treatments.
Microdermabrasion Before and After
FAQ about microdermabrasion
Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion is a quick, safe, and effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and colors with no downtime and virtually no discomfort. It has been available in Europe since the late 1980’s. It is achieved by the use of diamond-tip technology to remove dead or damaged skin cells. Skin will appear softer, smoother, brighter, clearer, and younger looking.
Men and women of any skin type or color. Anyone with aging, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, and sun damaged skin will be rejuvenated and refreshed. Blotchy and uneven skin tones will also be improved.
The most common areas of treatment are the face, neck, shoulders, knees and elbows. Any body area can be treated.
Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface and then dead cells settle on the surface. This can cause enlarged pores, clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, and a dull appearance. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance.
This gentle exfoliation is performed with a diamond tip passing over the skin’s surface by creating a gentle vacuum. Microdermabrasion exfoliates approximately 20-25 microns of dead skin cells of the outermost layer (stratum corneum). Once removed it reveals one’s own fresher, younger looking skin beneath. One microdermabrasion is equal to three 30% glycolic peels or one 70%.
The recommended amount is 6. Treatments are performed every 7-14 days. Treatments are meant to be progressive not aggressive. Results are most noticeable after the 3rd treatment, although, it is common to see results after the first session. Maintenance treatments are suggested once every 4-6 weeks.
The treatment session is 45 minutes, depending on the body area.
There is little to no downtime. One may experience a slight tingling, and the skin may feel tighter afterwards. Skin may appear slightly flushed and this generally fades in 12-24 hours. You may experience peeling or flaking, this is a sign of the cell renewal process being stimulated. If flaking occurs, simply use an exfoliant recommended by your skin care therapist 3-4 days after the treatment.
It is very important after to NOT EXERCISE. Where perspiration is created, you will develop a stinging sensation that can take several hours to dissipate.
