In the quest for youthful, vibrant skin, men and women share a common desire: to look their best, regardless of age. Diamond Peel technology, however, can easily bring you closer to healthier, younger-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion is derived from an age-old treatment called dermabrasion. The new Diamond Peel system, however, is modern and uses a gentler approach. It features a patented dual control system and adjustable applicator head that delivers a steady, effective stream of fine Diamond Crystals directly onto the skin. The old surface is removed, leaving it smooth, fresh, and rejuvenated.
There are many factors that influence cellular regeneration and epidermal growth. The skin’s natural response to excessive sunlight, for example, is to become thicker. This can result in slower shedding and a dry, rough skin. Acne sufferers, for example, may retain their skin cells, causing further congestion and thickening of the stratum corneum (top skin layer). Other factors, such as age, genetics, hormone balance, lack of minerals, and inadequate diet all influence epidermal cellular turnover and the production of new, healthy cells.
How does microdermabrasion work?
The Diamond Peel treatment erases epidermal layers at varying depths in a controlled manner. This approach respects the integrity of skin and promotes even healing. Maintaining level cellular growth on the surface aids in the youthfulness of the skin’s appearance.
Does microdermabrasion hurt?
No. It is minimally uncomfortable but does not require pre-treatment or topical anesthesia.
How many times does microdermabrasion need to be performed ?
The average patient requires about 6 treatments, each lasting approximately 10-15 minutes. These should be performed 3-5 weeks apart for best results. Depending on the area and condition being treated, you will start to notice an improvement after the second or third treatment. Further treatments maybe required for maintenance or problem areas.
What side effects can I expect after the treatment?
48 to 72 hours after treatment, the new skin is more vulnerable to irritation and may be sensitive to normally tolerated products. During this time period, use only the mildest cleansers and moisturizers.
What are the risks of the procedure?
There are minimal risks. The most common side effect is redness of the skin which which usually resolves within 24 hours and is easily covered with make-up.
