Diamond tip microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive treatment that professionally exfoliates the skin by removing dead, uneven layers of skin. This method of microdermabrasion uses a diamond tipped instrument to lightly abrade the top layers of skin and bring new, radiant skin to the surface.
About the Procedure
The diamond tip microdermabrasion approach uses a diamond-tip wand that is gently moved across the skin to exfoliate the face. Diamond tip microdermabrasion is typically compared to its predecessor, crystal microdermabrasion, which exfoliates the skin with a precise stream of tiny crystals. Hydradermabrasion, which harnesses the power of a pressurized water flow to wear away dead skin cells, is yet another microdermabrasion treatment available to patients. While all three methods of microdermabrasion are effective, it is important to note that the skincare professional performing the service can be more important than which technique is utilized. During a diamond tip microdermabrasion session, each treatment will last about a half hour. You may feel a mild scratching as the procedure removes the superficial skin cells. This technique has been compared to a mild sand-papering of the skin, whereas crystal microdermabrasion would be akin to a light sand-blasting. Additionally, you’ll notice a vibrating sensation akin to a massage. There is also a suction mechanism to lift off the dead skin.
