Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion is a quick, safe, and effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and colors with no downtime and virtually no discomfort. It is achieved by the use of diamond-tip technology to remove dead or damaged skin cells. Skin will appear softer, smoother, brighter, clearer, and younger looking.
WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Men and Women of any skin type or color. Anyone with aging, blemished, dry, devitalized, flaky, thickened, and sum damaged skin will be rejuvenated and refreshed. Blotchy and uneven skin tones will also be improved.
WHAT AREAS OF MY SKIN CAN BE TREATED?
The most common areas of treatment are the face including eyelids and lips (except those who is prone to cold sore), neck, chest, shoulders, knees, and elbows.
Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface and then dead cells settle on the surface. This can cause enlarged pores, clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture. and a dull appearance. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance.
HOW DOES A DIAMOND PEEL WORK?
This gentle exfoliation is performed by using a diamond tip passing over the skin's surface along with a gentle vacuum. Microdermabrasion exfoliates approximately 20-25 microns of dead skin cells of the outermost layer. Once removed it reveals one's own fresher, younger looking skin beneath. The result will last up to 7 days.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
We recommend 5-6 treatments in order to get the best result! Treatments are meant to be progressive, not aggressive. Results are most noticeable after the 3rd treatment although some people will see results after the first session already. Maintenance treatments are suggested once every 4 weeks.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
There is little to no downtime. One may experience a slight tingling, and the skin may feel tighter afterward. The skin may appear slightly flushed and this generally fades in 12-24 hours. You may experience peeling or flaking, this is a sign of the cell renewal process being stimulated. If flaking occurs, simply use an exfoliant recommended by our skin therapist 3-4 days after the treatment.
