Diamond microdermabrasion is the preferred alternative to treatment with traditional microdermabrasion machines. Diamond microdermabrasion differs from traditional treatments in that it doesn’t rely on microdermabrasion crystals to perform skin exfoliation. Diamond microdermabrasion utilizes microdermabrasion tips covered in tiny diamonds to perform skin exfoliation. When the diamond microdermabrasion tip makes contact with the skin it abrades against the top layer pulling it off. The microdermabrasion machine then sucks the loose dead skin cells away from the face. Otherwise, diamond and crystal microdermabrasion peel procedures are exactly the same in that the treatment provider passes the wand over each area of your skin three times. The diamonds on the microdermabrasion tip are actually thousands of tiny diamond particles which are uniformly sized. Diamond tips are assorted by varying sizes and granule abrasiveness. The appropriate diamond tip to use depends on the patient’s individual skin condition. Typically, several types are used on a single patient during a treatment. By having more choice in which diamond tip to use, microdermabrasion offers greater customization of treatment. Traditional microdermabrasion blasts microdermabrasion crystals onto the skin to perform exfoliation. Diamond microdermabrasion relies on suction in combination with the diamond tips to exfoliate. Increasing the suction makes the microdermabrasion process stronger and suitable for treating old stretch marks or deeper acne scars. Higher suction levels can be used on body skin because it is less sensitive than facial skin. Suction also has the added benefit of stimulating collagen and elastin as well as increasing blood flow to the skin. This provides an instantly revived complexion and healthy glow while collagen and elastin work to build stronger and more youthful skin.
