Experience Microdermabrasion's Triple Advantage
Smoothing and Deep Cleansing the Skin
Microdermabrasion removes the topmost layer of skin called the stratum corneum. This surface layer contains a higher concentration of dead skin cells and impurities.
Enhances Product Efficacy
Once this outer layer is removed, not only does it reveal newer, healthier, more beautiful skin, it also allows moisturizers, anti-aging serums, and nutrients to more deeply penetrate and be readily infused into the skin yielding incredible results. Microdermabrasion has been shown to enhance the absorption of skincare products by up to 50%. This means that if you are treating your skin for acne, the skin will be more receptive to the product, so it can have better results than it normally would.
Microdermabrasion can improve blood and lymphatic circulation deep within the skin which can improve the internal health of the skin. This enhanced blood flow means more oxygen and nutrients are supplied to the cells. This improves cell processes and therefore enhances the skin, improving elasticity resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance.
This triple advantage is what makes a series of microdermabrasion facials a highly effective skin care treatment.
Why Diamond Microdermabrasion is better than the Crystal Method?
Microdermabrasion works by using one of two methods – either swiping a crystal/diamond-tipped wand across your skin or firing highly pressurized crystals against the skin.
The Crystal Method
The Crystal Method is the older of the two and requires the firing of aluminum oxide crystals. It works by utilizing a special, handheld, device which causes a high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals which are released upon your skin at a very high temperature and rate. As dead skin cells and dirt are “blasted” off of your face, the system uses a vacuum to suck up the unwanted debris. This is why the crystal microdermabrasion method is sometimes referred to as “sandblasting” dead skin cells and dirt off your face.
Diamond Tipped Wand Method
At Fabrizio Salon & Urban Retreat Spa, we use the latest microdermabrasion technique called Diamond Microdermabrasion. It also uses a wand, however, its wand has a specialized diamond chip-tipped that sands away the outermost layer of skin and enables a more effective removal of this outer layer. Unlike its conventional predecessor that uses sandblasting particles, there are no loose particles left behind after your service. Additionally, we are able to offer our Diamond Microdermabrasion at a lower cost than the crystal method because this method does not require the use of crystals. Moreover and most importantly, we can customize the amount of removal by manually controlling the amount of pressure we apply to your skin and by manipulating the machine’s intensity controls. We like to start your frist microdermabrasion visit at lower intensities and increase this with each subsequent visit. Lastly, the Diamond Microdermabrasion method is much safer to use around the eyes, nose, and other delicate areas as there are no loose particles that can make their way into the eyes and nose.
Other Benefits of Diamond Microdermabrasion
Unclog Pores / Reduce Their Size
Diamond Microdermabrasion can not only unclog pores but also reduces the size of them. While to a certain extent we are born with a certain pore size, some external factors can enlarge them. Pores may enlarge due to aging, hygiene, inflammation of the skin or as a result of being clogged. Microdermabrasion can help clear the blockage and by improving the circulation of the skin can reduce inflammation and improve natural skin hygiene.
Microdermabrasion for the Body
Diamond Microdermabrasion is most commonly used on the face, however, it can be used on most areas of the body like the chest, back, and neck. Excellent for use on sun spots, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone as found throughout the body.
Many people now choose Diamond Microdermabrasion over other treatments options like laser procedures and chemical peels because it is safer and still achieves great results. It is one of the safest cosmetic procedures you can have done and does not require medications or a long recovery time. You can even do it during your lunch break as we have an Express Diamond Microdermabrasion Facial that only takes an hour!
What skin conditions can Diamond Microdermabrasion treat?
Acne / Blackheads
Diamond Microdermabrasion can reduce acne by clearing away dead skin cells and impurities that can block pores and lead to inflammation and spots. The improved circulation also gives more nutrients and oxygen to the cells, encouraging a faster turnover. It also stimulates collagen productions to make the appearance of the skin softer and more supple. It can be particularly successful for the reduction of blackheads. The top of the blackhead can be removed by the exfoliation while the suction from the vacuum can remove the remaining hardened oil. This can ultimately reduce pore size because they are no longer clogged with matter that is holding them open.
Scars / Acne Scars
Microdermabrasion can help reduce the appearance of many different types of scars, for example, those caused by surgery or accidents. While scars may take more treatments by microdermabrasion to get desired effects than other conditions, it can result in substantial improvement without pain or long recovery times that other treatments may need.
Diamond Microdermabrasion can also be a solution for people who would like to reduce the appearance of their scars that have accumulated due to acne. This is most successful on more superficial scars, which may benefit from enhanced healing due to the improved circulation and promotion of collagen production.
Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles can benefit greatly from Diamond microdermabrasion, particularly due to the natural promotion of collagen production. Collagen stimulates the skin renewal process but sadly decreases with age, so giving it a helpful boost can help reduce the appearance and delay the formation of fine line and wrinkles that are the results of repetitive expressions and sun damage.
Diamond Microdermabrasion can lighten the appearance of areas of hyperpigmentation. It can also benefit from the improved cell turnover which replaces damaged cells, reducing the incidence of hyperpigmentation, as well as boosting the collagen within the cells to even the skin tone.
Stretch marks are scars which begin right down in the dermis layer of the skin. This makes them difficult to treat, however, microdermabrasion has been found to help in a number of ways at reducing the appearance of stretch marks. It promotes the production of collagen and elastin, which help to keep the skin supple and the circulation which brings nutrients and promotes skin healing. This can prevent stretch marks from getting worse. It also makes skincare products more effective by increasing the depth of penetration the products can achieve. By using microdermabrasion alongside topical products, the stretch marks may fade.
What results can I expect?
Diamond Microdermabrasion will yield smoother, cleaner, younger-looking, firmer skin. You may notice results after your first treatment. This is particularly the case when undergoing Diamond Microdermabrasion to brighten the skin or remove blackheads. For best results, however, we strongly recommend between 3 or 6 sessions spaced about a month apart. That is why we offer our Diamond Microdermabrasion in packages of 3 or 6 treatment at a slightly reduced price. We recommend between 5 and 8 treatments for deeper scarring.
