Crystal-free Diamond Microdermabrasion is a soothing facial treatment that uses a diamond tip device to smooth away the dry, dull, outer layers of skin, revealing the healthy skin underneath. Can be used on the face, chest, neck and hands. Even a single treatment will give your skin a glow and allow your makeup to go on more smoothly. Avani Derm Spa by Nayak Plastic Surgery offers this advanced (and glamorous) alternative to traditional Microdermabrasion in St. Louis.
Traditional Microdermabrasion and Diamond Microdermabrasion use mechanical energy to remove dull, dead cells and debris from the skin’s surface and reveal smooth, radiant skin beneath. However, there are some crystal-clear advantages to choosing Diamond Microdermabrasion.
Traditional Microdermabrasion uses tiny aluminum oxide crystals to smooth away unwanted particles from the skin’s surface. Unfortunately, these crystals can be hazardous if projected into the mouth or eyes. This concern poses a significant problem for patients hoping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles in these areas of the face. Diamond Microdermabrasion uses a device with a diamond tip to remove particles from the skin’s surface without loose, hazardous crystals. At the same time, this device vacuums debris away with adjustable suction. The inclusion of suction in the Microdermabrasion process also increases blood flow, which promotes collagen production.
Diamond Microdermabrasion effectively treats fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, clogged pores, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and stretch marks without surgery, painful treatment, or downtime. It promotes overall skin health and leaves the skin softer, brighter, firmer, and clearer. It is safe and effective for all skin types and can easily be combined with other treatments. As Diamond Microdermabrasion clears the skin’s surface and pores of debris, it also enhances the effects of skincare products as they can better penetrate the skin.
Diamond Microdermabrasion is well-tolerated and a popular treatment option for generally healthy men and women who would like to improve the health and aesthetic quality of their skin. Patients who have acne that has not responded to other treatments often achieve clearer skin with Diamond Microdermabrasion.
It is an ideal treatment option for patients who live an active or busy lifestyle and want to avoid downtime and patients who have allergies or sensitivities to skincare ingredients or chemicals. However, patients with certain medical or skin conditions may realize better results with an alternative treatment method. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo Diamond Microdermabrasion.
Diamond Microdermabrasion is gentle and even relaxing for many patients. Treatment takes about 30 minutes. As soon as exfoliation is complete, your specialist may apply toner and other products to nourish the skin.
There is no recovery period after Diamond Microdermabrasion. Your skin may be slightly flushed, but you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment and return to your day! You will notice an immediate difference in the look and feel of your skin. With regular treatments, you will continue to see improvements in your skin. Many patients like to schedule their treatments every two to four weeks, but even a single treatment or less frequent sessions will make a noticeable difference in the health of your skin.
