What is Diamond Microdermabrasion? A Gentle Exfoliating Skin Treatment
The future is bright, and we’re living in the moments that we’d only dreamed of a decade ago. The evolution of skin care is both impressive and exciting. Skin concerns and conditions that some people thought would last forever have solutions and options today. Diamond Microdermabrasion is the perfect example.
What is Diamond Microdermabrasion?
Diamond Microdermabrasion is a process that uses a diamond tip on a wand to exfoliate and renew the skin. The incredible thing about Diamond Microdermabrasion is that it’s accessible to all despite its seemingly luxurious name. Known for its anti-aging effects, microdermabrasion has become a cult favorite treatment among those looking to buff early aging signs and sun damaged skin out.
Diamond Microdermabrasion vs crystal microdermabrasion
The 90s were filled with flannel, teen dramas and a seemingly endless amount of new soda flavors. But it also birthed the Crystal Microderm which was the treatment at the time. The Crystal Microdermabrasion would blast aluminum oxide crystals against the skin and suck up all the dirt and grime with a vacuum.
Eventually, the crystals became too abrasive, and aestheticians slowly made their way to using diamond tips. Sloughing off dead skin cells, a diamond-tipped tool turned out to have a better precision and outcome for those with sensitive skin.
Who shouldn’t receive microdermabrasion treatment?
People with skin conditions like rosacea or eczema may want to avoid this treatment. In many cases, sensitive skin or skin concerns can be antagonized by Diamond Microdermabrasion. Sticking to classic exfoliants or talking with your aesthetician can help you determine which routes work well for your skin type.
What are the benefits of Diamond Microdermabrasion?
Like many processes of the past, Crystal Microdermabrasion is slowly being phased out. The risks were too high for the outcomes, and Diamond Microdermabrasion proved to be a better alternative. Leaving zero residue on the skin and showing you exactly how much debris and dead skin cells were removed, Diamond Microdermabrasion also helps with pore extraction, skin resurfacing and skin damage from sun exposure.
Even your skin texture and tone
With the word “abrasion” in tow, this diamond treatment acts as a buffer for smoothing and evening all things uneven on your sensitive skin. Exfoliation is essential for balancing out skin texture and uneven tone. It gives way to new cell growth and promotes faster cell turnover, leaving you with that glowing radiance we’ve been chasing since we started reading fairy tales. Applicable to stretch marks, acne scars and age spots, this treatment is a sure fire way to get your skin feeling and looking its best.
Better product absorption
Once your skin has space to breathe and ingrown hairs are knocked loose, your previously clogged pores have the chance to absorb your skincare products tenfold. With nothing blocking the way, the depth of product penetration will have your skin reaping the benefits of your delicious, nutrient-dense serums, moisturizers and actives.
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Aging can be a beautiful process. Our skin tells the story of us, and it does so through expressions of fine lines and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion works to stimulate collagen production which plums fine lines and wrinkles and slowly makes them less visible. When used with vitamin C or hyaluronic acid, you’ll notice a huge difference in the texture of your skin.
The process of diamond microdermabrasion
Using a diamond tip, a wand is applied across the surface of the skin which gently exfoliates the skin. These skin treatments are gentle and mindful of caring for your skin. The phrase abrasion and abrasive may worry some people but it is not a painful procedure. In fact, many clients report that their Diamond Microdermabrasion treatments are quite relaxing.
How long does a session take?
If you haven’t fallen asleep during your treatment, you may be surprised to know that in as little as 35 minutes you can be out of the chair and on your way. With freshly polished skin, you will want to make sure that you follow up with an appropriate serum, moisturizer and sun protection to make the most of your post treatment glow.
How much does diamond microdermabrasion cost?
As far as your budget goes, Diamond Microdermabrasion falls in line with many common skin care treatments. The cost can range anywhere from $100 - $300 depending upon certain factors like the length of your procedure, provider and location. The good news is while with an aesthetician’s approval, you can have treatments as often as weekly or you can stretch those treatments to every eight weeks. This is especially a great option for people who are in their maintenance stage.
