Diamond Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation treatment, it is safe and controlled and resurfaces the skin by removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells. It does this by buffing away the skin cells using tiny rough grains. In the case of diamond micro-dermabrasion these are small grains of diamonds. The dead skin cells are then vacuumed from the skin.
The technique of microdermabrasion has been around since the 80’s and originally used crystals. Diamond microdermabrasion is used today as it gives similar results but with less discomfort and reduced reaction and redness to the skin.
The treatment is more often performed on the face but can also be used to treat other parts of the body such as chest, neck, arms, hands and back.
The benefits of Microdermabrasion are many as it can:
Soften fine lines and wrinkles
Smooth coarsely textured skin
Decrease the appearance of blemish and acne scarring
Reduce open pores, blackheads and fine wrinkles
Reduce superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots.
Also make it easier for skin care products to penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin to help build collagen, which is what gives skin its youthful appearance.
Microdermabrasion can achieve dramatic results. For best results, it is recommended to have a course of treatments, usually 3 to 6. The treatments should be at approximately 2-4 weeks apart to allow recovery of the skin before your next treatment. Vicki will recommend the number that they feel will be appropriate for your skin type and condition.
