In our practice, we use diamond microdermabrasion. The diamonds are fixed to the microdermabrasion wand which is used to perform the procedure. The small diamonds essentially scrape the surface layers of the skin off leaving fresh and smooth skin.
Diamond microdermabrasion is a method of skin exfoliation similar to peeling that uses a specially designed instrument to remove the outer dermal layer, most commonly on the face. It can help produce a more toned and youthful appearance, and may help counter the effects of aging, disease, or sun damage. The device projects very fine diamond particles onto the skin to clean the pores, loosening dead skin cells before suctioning them off, while massaging and stimulating the tissue beneath the skin to promote oxygenation and blood circulation. The process of diamond microdermabrasion is quick and generally painless, with low risks and associated side effects.
The procedure begins with a thorough cleansing of the affected area, which can include the face, hands, feet, back the neck, or chest. The exfoliation instrument applies the diamond particles gently and evenly to clean, loosen, and remove unwanted tissue and massage beneath the external dermal layer. The skin is then treated with a toner and lubricating cream to protect it during the recovery period.
