Diamond microdermabrasion

What is diamond microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion, also referred to as mechanical exfoliation or micro resurfacing, is a method for facial rejuvenation that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation along with adjustable suction to sweep away the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. It is a non-invasive procedure, which is performed in-office by a trained skin care professional.

Who is a candidate for the treatment?
Human skin sloughs off at a slower rate with age, so the exfoliation of several layers of the stratum corneum (surface skin layers) leaves skin fresh and radiant. Microdermabrasion can be done to decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars, which helps to even out the texture. Removing the dead skin will aid in the penetration of skin care products by up to 50% and makeup will go on much more smoothly.

How to prepare for microdermabrasion?
Avoid creams with glycolic acid, lactic acid and retinoic acid as well as home peels for 72 hours before treatment.

How long does the treatment take?
15-30 minutes.

Is it painful?
No, the treatment is relaxing.

How to take care of the skin after microdermabrasion?
Deep exfoliation usually leaves the skin tighter and drier afterward. A moisturizer and sunscreen are essential post-microdermabrasion treatments to ensure glowing skin. Some redness can be expected afterwards, however this is not likely to persist more than a few hours. The sensation of having a mild windburn or sunburn will also pass after a few hours. Applying a high quality moisturizer and hydrating serum will help the healing process. Avoid sun exposure and make sure to use SPF 30 sunblock, as exposure to UV radiation is one of the key factors in speeding the skin aging process. Avoid creams with glycolic acid, lactic acid and retinoic acid as well as home peels for 72 hours post treatment.
You may apply make-up 24 hours after treatment.
You may resume your daily activities immediately after treatment.

How many treatments are recommended?
A normal course of treatments varies between 4-12 at approximately 1-4 week intervals. It is recommended that you schedule an additional treatment every 2-3 months to maintain your skins condition. Most individuals actually feel and see a difference just after two or three treatments, but schedule additional treatments to increase this improvement. Combining this treatment process with a good SPF 30 sunblock and high-quality skin products will help you maintain your improved skin. Be advised, raised or deeply pitted skin areas (possibly from old severe acne scars) and darker pigmented areas will require multiple treatments over extended amounts of time. While microdermabrasion helps superficial problems, it is not the cure for heavily damaged skin; it is a noninvasive technique for those of you who do not need a serious laser or chemical peel treatment.

Who shouldn't get a microdermabrasion?
Avoid the treatment in cases of inflamed acne, rosacea, bacterial infections of the skin, herpes and if on isotretinoin therapy.
