Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion is a non surgical skin refinish procedure. During the procedure, a state-of-the-art diamond cut hand piece with a sandpaper-like surface will be used to gently remove the dead skin and debris on the outer layer of the skin, leaving smoother, cleaner, brighter skin. The treatment encourages skin renewal, aides in removing scars, pigment spots and fine wrinkles, and restores skin structure.
Mechanical removal of the upper layer of dead skin contributes not only to improved blood circulation in the skin (and, hence, increased metabolic rate in skin tissues), but also stimulates the formation of the connective elements which are responsible for young skin: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Increasing their number makes the skin more elastic, supple and fresh.
The Diamond Peel gently, safely removes the outer layers of the stratum corneum, and any debris on the skin such as surface blackheads, oil and dirt. The treatment is excellent for anyone whose skin is dull, flaky, dry, dirty, and anyone with clogged pores. It can be used to diminish the following conditions: sun damage, pigmentation, blackheads, whiteheads, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, stretch marks, acne scars and coarsely textured skin can also help improve the appearance of brown spots and lightens dark skin. The treatment can also help with mild to moderate acne by opening up the pores and allowing them to breathe, Diamond Peel will slough off the dead skin cells which in turn will stimulate the production of new skin cells and this will improve the appearance of scarring at a superficial level. The vacuum mechanism stimulates cell metabolism and circulation. Treatment can be performed on most skin types and all skin colours
During the treatment the process of refining is carried out by using small refining tips. These tips offer the ability to treat sensitive areas such as around the eyes. It is also possible to remove blackheads, spots and pimples. The refining tips have an “erasing effect” and also reduce lines and wrinkles. Using refining tips improves texture of skin and smoothes irregularities such as; sun damaged, uneven and thickened skin and pigmentation. During the refining process an isometrics procedure is also carried out. Isometrics is a lifting method which is similar to the appearance of ‘Botox’. It is most effective on the eyebrows, cheeks and jaw line.
When you come in for a Diamond Peel, your face will be examined to make sure that you don’t have any broken skin other contraindication. Your face will be cleansed thoroughly and prepped with a degreasing solution, which will allow the Diamond Peel to more effectively remove the dead cells.
