What is Diamond Microdermabrasion?

Have you ever asked yourself ‘Why aren’t my skincare products working?’ or ‘Why is my skin looking so dull?’ Microdermabrasion may be the skin treatment for you.

We all have lots of dead skin cells underneath our skin. When those dead skin cells aren’t removed, our skincare products just lay on top of those cells. They may try to work their way down, but are unable to. Dead skin cells can also leave our skin dry and looking and feeling dull.

Diamond Microdermabrasion is a simple yet effective means of rejuvenating and polishing your skin, with immediately visible results. It uses manual exfoliation to remove the outer layer of skin on the face. The hand tool exfoliates deeper than any high street exfoliator.

What is the difference between Diamond Microdermabrasion & Crystal Microdermabrasion?

Diamond Microdermabrasion offers a safer way of removing the dead skin cells with its diamond tip. Crystal Microdermabrasion is slowly being replaced with Diamond.

Is my skin type suitable for this treatment?

If you have any of the following, this treatment will work fantastically well; Dry skin, mature skin, pigmentation skin, oily skin, enlarged pores, sensitive skin, acne-prone skin, redness, fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin tone. If you currently have Rosacea you may not be able to have a Microdermabrasion treatment. Take a look at my Rosacea blog as a Chemical peel could work best for you.

Is one treatment enough?

Just like a haircut, our skin needs regular conditioning treatments too. Microdermabrasion or any other facial should become part of your monthly routine. Every 30 days those dead skin cells will come back. However, the more you stay on top of your skin, the less come back and the more radiant and healthier your skin will look.

If you are having regular treatments , refrain from exfoliating at home. This could be too much for your skin. Over exfoliating could leave you with broken blood vessels and irritated skin.

What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?

After your first treatment, you will instantly see your skin glow. You will also see a change in skin texture and complexion. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, reduces wrinkles and fine lines. It helps with blackheads/acne/breakouts (those painful spots under the skin) scarring, sun exposure, pigmentation. It can also help with uneven skin tone and strengthen the skin.

Is there any downtime involved?

If you aren’t using clean brands like Jane Iredale or Clinicare make up, you will need to be makeup-free and avoid steam for 12 hours.
