Microdermabrasion

Reverse years off your skin with no down-time!

What is diamond Microdermabrasion?

Diamond Microdermabrasion is an mechanical exfoliation treatment designed for superficial skin resurfacing, which improves the texture of the skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I use a safe Diamond  system to exfoliate the upper layers of skin, and stimulate collagen growth in the lower layers, revealing healthy, vibrant skin. The exfoliated skin is then immediately vacuumed away. Removing the outermost layers of the skin in a controlled manner stimulates cell renewal, regenerates healthier skin, and allows skin care products to penetrate more effectively. The intensity can be varied from a light exfoliation to mild resurfacing in order to suit an individual’s skin concerns. Unlike some other resurfacing treatments, microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types, carries very little risk for side effects, and requires no downtime. While immediate improvements are usually noticeable, microdermabrasion treatments are often performed in a series to achieve optimal improvements. It is also essential to protect the treated area from the sun, as skin will be more sensitive to sun damage after microdermabrasion.

*One week prior treatment, please limit sun exposure and postpone Retinol and Glycolic Acid usage
**Minimum 6 months post Accutane treatment along with doctor authorization required

How does the treatment work?

Dead skin cells are suctioned off while the negative pressure boosts blood circulation and stimulates cell regeneration. Skin is freed of excess hardened skin and made receptive for active ingredients. At the same time, impurities caused by clogged pores are reduced by removing the corneum (hardened skin layer). The skin’s appearance becomes finer, the pores smaller and the reproduction of skin cells are stimulated. An immediate firming effect is achieved by the vacuum massage. In combination with a skin treatment at our spa, your skin is provided with moisture and other active ingredients.

How many times should the treatment be repeated?

Depending on your skin condition, I recommend repeating diamond microdermabrasion at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks to achieve a consistent result. For problem skin, it makes sense to shorten the intervals to 2 weeks between treatments, until the appearance of your skin has improved significantly. Generally, the treatment can be performed on all areas of the body: the most common treatment zones are the face, neck, décolletage and back.

Should I get this treatment?

There are very few cases where diamond microdermabrasion is not recommended. It is generally an ideal treatment for promoting healthy skin and helping it to regenerate. It is particularly recommended for:

  • Preparing the skin for mesotherapy

  • Blemished or oily skin, or with enlarged pores

  • Prevention or counteraction of premature wrinkles

  • Treating light scarring or scarring from injury

  • Rejuvenating sun damaged skin – face, neck, shoulders, back, arms and legs

  • Reducing age spots

  • Minimizing blotchy skin coloring

  • Reducing acne and breakouts

  • Extracting blackheads and whiteheads

  • Minimizing stretch marks

  • Improving overall skin health

  • Melasma and hyperpigmentation can be lightened with Diamond Tip by exfoliating the skin and turning over skin cells quickly to lighten pigmentation.

  • Helping skincare products work more effectively

  • Brightening skin
