The Benefits of Diamond Microdermabrasion

Updated on June 30, 2015

Who Can Get Diamond Microdermabrasion?

One of the most popular cosmetic skin care treatments available is diamond microdermabrasion, a procedure that is praised by women and men alike. No chemicals or anesthesia are used in the procedure, which is known for being simple and pain-free. It's appropriate for most skin types because it is non-invasive and can effectively reduce or eliminate wrinkles, acne, age spots, stretch marks, and more.

Limitations of Crystal Microdermabrasion

For years, one of the most common procedures for exfoliating the top layer of dead skin (which is what causes the complexion to look cloudy) has been crystal microdermabrasion. For this procedure, the outermost layer of dead skin is abraded with a hand-held device that emits a strong blast of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin.

It's important to note that lines and wrinkles in the mouth and eye area should not be treated with crystals. This is because during a treatment, it's possible for the tiny particles of crystal to get in the mouth or eyes, and these can cause some damage. But of course for many people, these are the particular areas that accumulate the wrinkles and fine lines that we most want to eliminate. So for those who want to

But of course, these are the particular areas that accumulate the wrinkles and fine lines that many people most want to eliminate. So for those who want to treat the delicate areas around the mouth and eyes, using diamond rather than crystal may be the way to go.

How Does Diamond Microdermabrasion Work?

Fortunately, another option that doesn't carry as much risk is diamond microdermabrasion. In this type of treatment, dead skin cells are exfoliated and vacuumed off the face with a machine that uses tips covered in tiny diamonds. The diamond tips—together with the strong suction—make it possible to exfoliate the skin more thoroughly than other procedures. With the flexibility of using different suction levels, it also increases blood flow to the skin, and that in turn helps to produce collagen.

This procedure lessens the likelihood of particles getting into and causing damage to the eyes or mouth and is regarded as an especially safe form of treatment. Not only that, it is also known to be very effective on deep acne scars or old stretch marks.

If you're looking for fast, reliable treatment for skin issues like wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, uneven skin tone, or stretch marks, you might consider getting this procedure.

Microdermabrasion Treatment Options

Microdermabrasion treatments are done in medical offices and spas by dermatologists or people who specialize in skin care. You will see immediate results after the procedure, but to get the best effect, you will need as many as 6-9 treatments.

Alternatively, microdermabrasion home kits are available at affordable prices, allowing you to do the treatment yourself at home. People who don't have time to go to a health clinic or spa may find this option ideal.

When comparing the benefits of microdermabrasion with other types of skin exfoliation procedures and products, most people consider the outcome well worth the cost. To achieve the best results, dermatologists and other skin care specialists recommend a daily skin care regimen in addition to the treatment.
