What is Diamond Microdermabrasion?
This is a quick, safe and effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and colors, with no downtime, pain or discomfort.
It has been available in Europe since the late 1980’s. It uses Diamond tipped applicator with a slight suction to remove dead or damaged skin cells. This procedure reduces fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, age spots and increases the production of Collegen and Elastin. Skin will appear softer, smoother,brighter, clearer, fresher and younger looking.The diamond tip gently exfoliates approximately 20-25 microns of dead skin cells of the outermost layer of skin.Once removed, it reveals one own fresher looking skin beneath. One Diamond Microdermabrasion treatment is equal to three 30% glycolic peels or one 70% peel.
Who can benefit from Microdermabrasion
Everyone-Men and women of any skin type and color. Skin that is aging, congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull and sun damaged can be rejuvenated and refreshed. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture will also be improved. Even normal skin can be made to look fresher with a warm glow.
How many treatments do you need?
This treatment is meant to be progressive not aggressive. Generally results are more noticeable after the third treatment. After the first session, the skin will appear fresher, cleaner, smoother and softer for some clients. Usually, treatments are performed every 4 weeks, but can be done more frequently. A typical course of treatment is a series of six Microdermabrasion sessions. Maintenance treatments are suggested once every 4 to 6 weeks.
What are the side effects?
One may experience a slight tingling and afterward the skin may feel tighter, as if exposed to the wind or sun
The skin may appear slightly flushed and this generally fades in 12-24 hours.
For one week before and after your treatment please stop using the following treatments and products;
Electrolysis, waxing, depilatories, masks, other Glycolic and Lactic- treatments or dermabrasion.
Hair dyes, permanant wave or straightening treatments.
Tretinoin ( vitamin A acid creams) and Glycolic acids.
What about aftercare?
You may apply makeup 3 to 4 hours after your treatment.
Avoid abrasive sponges for 1 week after your treatment.
Avoid sun exposure.
DO NOT pick, peel, scrape, scratch or wax your skin.
If your skin is dry, use moisturizer as many times a day as you like.
It is very important NOT to exercise for 24 hours after a treatment. Perspiration will produce a stinging sensation on newly treated skin which can take several hours to dissipate.
What is the greatest advantage of Microdermabrasion?
Probably the biggest single advantage that microdermabrasion has over alternative skin treatments, is that a microdermabrasion client can return to normal daily activities after receiving the treatment.
This makes microdermabrasion an ideal treatment for people wanting improved skin without disrupting their daily life over it.
