The Lowdown on Diamond Microdermabrasion


Microdermabrasion is a treatment that removes the upper layers of the skin, known as stratum corneum, using a device with a mildly abrasive tip. This device scrubs off the top layer of the skin while suctioning off the dirt, grime and dead skin cells away. It is used as an anti-aging treatment as well as a skin rejuvenation treatment as it can clear your complexion.
There are two types of microdermabrasion techniques – diamond and crystal. Diamond microdermabrasion is one of the most popular treatments available for both men and women. This treatment requires no chemicals or anesthesia as it is very simple, and virtually pain-free. It is non-invasive and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, and stretch marks by scrubbing away the dead skin cells layered on the top of your skin using a diamond-tipped device. This treatment takes just as much time as crystal microdermabrasions at an average of 30 minutes per session.
It uses a wand tip made from diamond chips and is preferred by skincare experts due to the accuracy and control they have over the machines used. The advantage of diamond microdermabrasion over crystal microdermabrasion is that it is particle-free, meaning that there are no micro-particles afterwards that can be left as residue on your skin. This is important when treating areas around the mouth or the eyes. Another advantage it has is its gentler approach, rarely causing heat or inflammation on your skin. The tips can also be customizable depending on how thorough the treatment can be.
