What is diamond microdermabrasion?

Diamond microdermabrasion is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatment that exfoliates the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, more vibrant skin. It uses a diamond-tipped wand and is highly effective for treating a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scars.

Diamond microdermabrasion encourages the production of new, healthy skin cells and boosts collagen production. Thus, it not only improves the texture and tone of the skin but also helps in achieving a clearer, more youthful glow.

What is the difference between diamond microdermabrasion and crystal microdermabrasion?

Crystal microdermabrasion blasts fine crystals, such as aluminum oxide, onto the skin’s surface. Afterwards, the crystals are vacuumed away through a suction mechanism integrated into the microdermabrasion device.

In contrast, the diamond microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tipped wand to mechanically exfoliate the skin, which allows for more controlled and precise abrasion without the use of particles.

One of the key advantages of diamond microdermabrasion is its particle-free process, which eliminates the risk of inhalation or irritation from stray crystals.

The moment I had stepped in to the clinic I was greeted by the lovely Dr Bisma who had performed my PRP. Dr Bisma was amazing from the start to finish,and with her wealth of knowledge and expertise, I knew I was in good hands. Whilst trying to provide comfort during this process and reassurance I was admired Dr Bisma’s sensitivity and compassion throughout. Thank you to Dr Bisma and the team for this experience. Would definitely recommend!

Just had my non surgical DBL with dr Bisma at Dr Ducu clinic. From start to finish everything was fully explained to me, high standards of clinical hygiene were involved throughout the procedure and the pain was managed continuously. Overall I felt minimal discomfort and I can’t wait to come back for more!

Microdermabrasion procedure at Dr. Ducu Clinics London

1. Consultation

The diamond microdermabrasion process begins with a thorough consultation with a skincare professional at Dr. Ducu Clinics. During this session, the practitioner assesses your skin type, concerns, and goals. You will learn more about the potential benefits of diamond microdermabrasion, such as addressing specific issues like uneven texture, fine lines, or dullness. During the consultation, a customised treatment plan will be tailored to your needs.

2. Procedure

 Once you are ready for treatment, the practitioner cleanses the skin to remove any makeup, oil, or debris. We then use a handheld device equipped with a diamond-tipped wand to gently exfoliate the skin’s surface. The diamond-tipped wand abrades the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, more radiant complexion underneath. The procedure is painless and well-tolerated by most clients, though some may experience a mild scratching sensation.

3. Aftercare

After the treatment, the skin may appear slightly red or flushed, similar to a mild sunburn, but this typically subsides within a few hours. We will provide aftercare instructions, which may include avoiding direct sun exposure, applying moisturiser, and using gentle skincare products. It’s essential to keep the skin hydrated and protected as it heals.

4. Results

The results of diamond microdermabrasion are immediate and continue to improve over time with regular treatments. Clients typically notice smoother, softer skin with improved texture and tone. Fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial pigmentation may also appear reduced, giving the complexion a more youthful and radiant appearance. For optimal results, a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart is often recommended, followed by maintenance sessions as needed to sustain the benefits.

Here are some of the most appreciated benefits of the technique:

Exfoliation - Diamond microdermabrasion effectively removes dead skin cells from the surface, promoting cell turnover and revealing smoother, fresher skin underneath.

Improves skin texture - By buffing away rough patches and uneven texture, diamond microdermabrasion helps to refine the skin's surface, leaving it feeling softer and more supple.

Reduces fine lines and wrinkles - The exfoliating action of diamond microdermabrasion can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Enhances product absorption - By removing the barrier of dead skin cells, diamond microdermabrasion allows skincare products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, maximising their effectiveness and ensuring better results from your skincare routine.

Microdermabrasion London - Frequently asked questions

Ideal candidates for microdermabrasion are those seeking to improve the overall texture and appearance of their skin, including those with concerns such as dullness, roughness, mild acne scarring, or fine lines. It is suitable for most skin types and tones.

Yes, diamond microdermabrasion is safe. Unlike crystal microdermabrasion, which uses abrasive particles that can potentially cause irritation or allergic reactions, diamond microdermabrasion utilises a diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate the skin, eliminating the risk of stray particles. Additionally, diamond microdermabrasion is non-invasive and does not require anesthesia, reducing the likelihood of adverse reactions.

 

You may begin to notice some immediate effects of microdermabrasion, such as smoother and brighter skin immediately after the treatment. However, the full benefits of microdermabrasion, including improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall appearance, typically become more apparent over the course of several treatments.

The duration of the effects of diamond microdermabrasion can vary depending on factors such as individual skin type, skincare routine, and environmental factors. Generally, the effects of diamond microdermabrasion can last anywhere from one to three months.

You may have a diamond peel treatment every two to four weeks. This interval allows for adequate time for the skin to recover and regenerate between sessions while maximising the cumulative benefits of the treatment.

After diamond microdermabrasion, it’s important to avoid direct sun exposure and sunscreen should be applied to protect the skin. Strenuous exercise and activities that cause excessive sweating should be avoided to prevent irritation and potential infection. Harsh skincare products, swimming in chlorinated pools, and touching or picking at the skin should also be avoided to ensure optimal healing and results.

Diamond microdermabrasion is a comfortable and well-tolerated procedure for most individuals. The sensation experienced during the treatment is often described as a mild scratching or sandpaper-like feeling as the diamond-tipped wand gently exfoliates the skin’s surface. While some individuals may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity, especially in areas with thinner skin or closer to bony prominences, the procedure is typically not painful.

Microdermabrasion and anti-wrinkle fillers serve different purposes and are not direct substitutes for each other. Microdermabrasion is primarily a skin exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin cells and stimulates cell turnover. On the other hand, anti-wrinkle fillers are injectable treatments designed to add volume to specific areas of the face, soften wrinkles, and restore facial contours.

 In general, a series of treatments is recommended to achieve optimal results. Most people undergo a series of six to twelve treatments, spaced two to four weeks apart, to see significant improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.

Yes, microdermabrasion can be beneficial for treating acne and reducing the appearance of large pores. By exfoliating the outermost layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion helps unclog pores, removing trapped dirt, oil, and debris that can contribute to acne breakouts.
