Say goodbye to dull skin! If you’re looking for smooth, radiant skin, diamond microdermabrasion could be the answer. Over time, frequent use of sun block, moisturisers and make-up eventually clogs the pores of the skin. Twice daily cleansing and regular exfoliation might keep your skin topically cleaned, but what about deep inside the pores and follicles? The skin’s pores and follicles need to be regularly cleaned to prevent build-up of impurities and dead skin cells which can give your skin a dull, grey look. Diamond microdermabrasion exfoliation gently removes the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, hands and body. What’s more, the exfoliation is combined with a “vacuuming” process which deeply cleanses the skin of impurities, giving it a fresher, younger appearance.
The skin consists of two main layers – the dermis and the epidermis. Above the epidermis is the stratum corneum, which forms a barrier between the lower skin layers and the outside world. Diamond microdermabrasion targets the stratum corneum, which consists of dead skin cells which can prevent the skin’s true radiance from shining through. It is a quick, safe, effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and colours, with no downtime and no pain. This non-invasive exfoliating technique minimises trauma and creates healthy and glowing skin by promoting new skin cell growth. The smooth crystal-free tip with abrasive/filter pad works without “scratching” sensitive or thin skin areas with crystals, so it is safe for even sensitive skin.
Diamond microdermabrasion systems operate without the need for crystals. The treatment tip consists of tiny diamonds that abrade the skin so that the dead, flaking skin is removed and vacuumed through the machine. The combination of skin exfoliation and slight suction stimulates reproduction of collagen by the fibroblasts and living cells at the basal layer of the epidermis. This effect improves cell turnover, blood flow and is ideal for reducing breakouts and blackheads. It is a mild treatment causing minimal damage to the surface of the skin and therefore results in younger looking skin and a reduction of fine lines or wrinkles. It also makes it easier for today’s high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating the production of the collagen and elastin which give skin its youthful appearance, while improving the appearance of the neck and smile lines. The treatment is painless and doesn’t irritate the skin, so most people find that they can return to work immediately afterwards.
Having four to six treatments separated by one or two weeks often produces the best results and additional treatments every one to three months as a maintenance programme is recommended.
Microdermabrasion is exceptionally effective and can give superior results in:
-Softening fines lines and wrinkles
-Diminution of course lines
-Some minimisation of pore size
-Acne and leveling of acne scarring
-Lightening of pigmentation irregularities and hyper-pigmentation (age spots)
-Increased smoothness in skin texture
-Increase in the skins natural glow and radiance
-Reduces other types of scarring such as stretch marks.
Especially when used in conjunction with the correct home care regime.
