Diamond microdermabrasion is one of the best and most affordable skin treatments available. Everyone can benefit from this treatment and it is praised by dermatologists worldwide. The process is simple, pain free, uses no chemicals or anesthesia of any type, and can be used on most skin types. There is no downtime and you can resume all activities easily.
As the skin cell turnover rate is somewhere between 28 and 40 days, skin that is not refreshed with microdermabrasion can begin to look cloudy, dull, flaky, dry, and lose luminosity. The skin naturally sheds dead skin cells through a process called desquamation. Also called the “cell renewal factor,” this process changes as we age. Babies and children have the fastest rate as they are growing and their rate is twice that of an adult. Have you ever noticed how beautiful a child’s skin texture is? It is bright, smooth, soft, and glowing because they always have a skin surface filled with new cells.
Speeding up cellular regeneration through microdermabrasion will improve the quality and appearance of your skin. It can reduce or eliminate wrinkles, skin discolorations such as age spots or sun damage, stretch marks, and even improve acne.
Originally microdermabrasion was done by blasting the skin with aluminum oxide crystals. Lines and wrinkling around the eyes and mouth should not be treated with these crystals as there exists a risk of damage to the eyes and mouth.
Recent technology has advanced to diamond microdermabrasion that exfoliates and vacuums the skin with a machine that uses tips covered with tiny diamonds. As varying levels of suction are also available with this method, blood flow to the skin is increased. This helps the skin to produce more collagen, which will create a more youthful appearance and diminish wrinkling.
When the skin is free of dead skin cells, treatment products are much more easily absorbed into the skin. Adding a diamond microdermabrasion treatment before a facial can really enhance the benefits of the subsequent procedure.
While you will see and feel immediate results from just one diamond microdermabrasion session, scheduling a series of 6 to 9 treatments will give the best effects. The process also can be done on the décolleté, back, forearms and other areas where you want to see new skin.
