A diamond peel treatment is a mechanical exfoliation with microdermabrasion. This noninvasive cosmetic procedure removes excess oil, dirt, and dead cells on the surface of the skin to reveal the younger, brighter skin cells underneath. A diamond peel can improve the appearance of fine wrinkles and lines, even out a patchy complexion, and reduce mild to moderate acne breakouts.
How It Works
Diamond peel removes the stratum corneum, the layer of dead cells that makes up the uppermost layer of the epidermis. However, while microdermabrasion uses a sandblasting tool to shoot tiny aluminum oxide crystals at the surface of the skin, a diamond peel is crystal-free. The instrument used in a diamond peel has an abrasive diamond tip that gently loosens the dead cells, dirt, and debris while the wand's suction component vacuums them away.
Advantages of the Diamond Peel Treatment
The diamond peel can more easily treat some problem areas, such as crow's feet and lip wrinkles, than traditional microdermabrasion can. You can safely undergo the diamond peel in conjunction with other skin treatments, such as a hydra cool Facial system.
The Diamond Peel Experience and Potential Side Effects
The diamond peel procedure is painless and lasts about 15 minutes. You can apply makeup and resume normal daily activities directly afterwards. Potential side effects are minor; they include mild redness and feeling like you have a mild sunburn. These symptoms last only a few hours.
After Care and Frequency
After a diamond peel, your skin may feel tight and dry, so keep skin well-hydrated with a quality moisturizer. Also, avoid extended sun exposure for five to seven days after treatment, and wear an SPF 30 sunblock when outside. Many people notice an improvement in their skin after two or three sessions.
CRYSTALS & DIAMOND TIP TECHNOLOGIES
Microdermabrasion is a system of intense exfoliation and resurfacing by using either ultra-fine crystals or a diamond tip. In the case of crystals, the crystals strike the skin to remove its outer layer, known as the stratum corneum. At the same time, a vacuum tube sweeps up both the crystals and the skin’s cellular debris. Diamond tip microdermabrasion uses vacuum assistance to gently pull on the skin whilst the diamond tip exfoliates the top skin layer.
Microdermabrasion is used for skin rejuvenation and specialty treatment applications.
