The Diamond microdermabrasion requires no crystals or particulates to create the abrasive action. Instead it uses a wand encrusted with diamond chips and slight suction to exfoliate the upper layers of your skin. Through the gently abrasive diamond chip handpiece, it delivers a controlled exfoliation of the upper- most surface skin layer.
We can adjust and tailor the power of the peel according to your skin type and individual needs. The treatment can also be combined with both your home skin care program such as Sothys products, and other spa (no downtime) procedures such as light glycolic peels or laser treatments.
Microdermabrasion is beneficial for the treatment of superficial wrinkles and fine lines, especially on the upper lip and crow’s foot area at the corner of the eyes. Treatment of the cheeks and forehead will often soften the appearance of fine wrinkles while simultaneously improving the blotchy, irregular skin color and brown spots that commonly appear with age.
These superficial skin peels can result in a softer, smoother and more youthful appearance. In addition, some stretch marks, chicken pox scars and some types of acne scars can be improved with Microdermabrasion. Finally, some blackheads, whiteheads and other oily skin surface debris can be effectively removed.
The controlled peeling and rapid healing that follows treatment promotes renewal of skin surface cells and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin within the deeper portions of the skin.
When it comes to microdermabrasion, it is important to have a series of treatments, 3 to 6 are recommended for the best results. These initial treatments can be spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart. Following this, the client can continue to receive one treatment on a monthly basis for the best maintenance
Micro skin resurfacing treatments are painless yet effective. The degree of effectiveness is controlled by a widely adjustable vacuum in conjunction with varying coarseness of the wands.
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after treatment but for most people skin should return to normal in 10 – 30 minutes. Occasionally the skin may feel warm to the touch and be slightly “tingly” for up to 24 hours following treatment. It is highly recommended that a light moisturizer and sunscreen be used post treatment for at least 48 hours to protect the skin. The client MUST refrain from all retinol and Alpha hydroxyl acid containing products for 24 hours.
After the first treatment the skin will have a fresh, radiant glow. Improvement will continue throughout the treatment programme and generally fine lines, wrinkles and age spots become greatly diminished and many patients report that their skin seems to be softer, smoother and younger looking.
Results can be maintained with the correct use of professional homecare products such as Sothys products as well as regular maintenance micro skin resurfacing every 4 – 6 weeks.
