Diamond Microdermabrasion Reduces Wrinkles Without Downtime
May 1st, 2014
While diamonds may be forever, beautiful skin unfortunately isn’t. What’s interesting, though, is that the many skin care specialists are actually using diamonds to help your skin look healthier and fresher.
Diamond microdermabrasion is an advanced method of exfoliating the skin and is becoming one of the most popular skin care treatments available.Diamond microdermabrasion safely removes the dead cells and encourages the production of fresh new cell skin cells – all this without the messiness and inherent risks associated with tradition crystal microdermabrasion.
With the older form of microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are blasted onto the surface of the skin (much like how a sandblaster is used). Although good results can be gained from this technique, the delicate eye area and skin around the lips must be carefully avoided, which unfortunately are the first places where signs of aging appear. Another problem crystal microdermabrasion is that dust created during the treatment can get into your mouth and eyes and pose health risks.
Diamond microdermabrasion produces none of the hazardous dust that results from crystals. It can also be used near the eyes and around the mouth area where the signs of aging are first observed. This is because diamond microdermabrasion relies on microdermabrasion tips covered in tiny diamonds to perform skin exfoliation. When the diamond microdermabrasion tip makes contact with the skin it gently abrades against the top layer of skin and then sucks the loose dead skin cells away from the face.
Diamond and crystal microdermabrasion procedures are exactly the same in that the treatment provider passes the wand over each area of your skin three times. The results are same, too, which includes the removal or improvement of the appearance of:
- Creases and folds, fine age lines, and crow’s feet
- Superficial pigmentation imperfections (age spots and blemishes)
- Rough skin, scars, enlarged pores, acne and acne scars, blackheads and whiteheads
- Lines after laser surgery
- Some surface growths
- Psoriasis and stretch marks
A single diamond microdermabrasion procedure takes up to 30 minutes and should be repeated at intervals of one to two weeks depending on your skin type and condition.
After the procedure you experience a slight blushing of the skin that disappears within one or two hours. The procedure is non-invasive so there is no downtime. Patients can return to activities and work right away.
“Unlike the ‘salon models’ currently in use everywhere, our machines are much more powerful and can thus achieve better results in much faster time,” says Sheila Calderon, M.D. “Additionally, the skin is ‘prepped’ with proprietary, clinical-strength products to achieve results that may rival – if not exceed – some chemical peels and laser treatments.”
