Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion
What is a Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a facial procedure that uses manual exfoliation to remove the outer layer of skin. This process works in a series to achieve the best results. We use a diamond-tipped wand to abrade the surface of your skin. Unlike lesser microdermabrasion devices that discharge loose crystals and cannot be used around the eyes or mouth. diamond-tip microdermabrasion can be used anywhere on the face. The wand’s diamond tips gently abrade and exfoliate the skin, minimizing the appearance of age spots and enlarged pores. A vacuum integrated into the wand removes dead skin cells and stimulates blood circulation throughout the face, facilitating collagen and elastin cell production and producing softer, younger-looking skin.
Is microdermabrasion safe?
One of the important benefits of microdermabrasion is its safety. It is a non-invasive procedure with minimal risks. When performed by an experienced esthetician or dermatologist, microdermabrasion can significantly enhance the complexion without affecting the deeper layers of the skin.
How long do the effects of microdermabrasion last?
Initially, 5 to 8 treatments spaced 7 to 10 days apart are recommended for most people. Acne scars and discolorations may require more treatments. Monthly maintenance treatments every 2 or 3 months may be necessary to maintain results. Microdermabrasion is a safe and common procedure.
