DiamondSkin Microdermabrasion utilizes the latest technology of natural diamond chips plated to a stainless surgical wand to polish away dead skin cells, promoting new growth and exposing healthier skin, without using loose abrasives that can result in adverse skin reactions.
How does Microdermabrasion work? The thickness of the epidermis is increased because new cells are being produced more rapidly and the cells themselves are larger and healthier. The cells of the lower layers of the epidermis are knitted tighter in a more consistent “basket weave” configuration, instead of a haphazard arrangement. The barrier function of the epidermis is disrupted for the first 24 to 48 hours causing the skin to be drier than usual. During the cell reproduction of cells the fibroblasts that make up the collagen fibers are increased and are thicker more tightly packed and more organized. The number of elastin fibers also increased and they are orientated vertically instead of horizontally giving the dermal layer more “spring”.
A series of these treatments have been shown to treat or diminish fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, acne scars and acne prone skin, blackheads and post surgical maintenance.
