As with anything new or untried, people considering diamond microdermabrasion may have preexisting conceptions about what the procedure entails. For some, these thoughts may be due to a lack of knowledge; for others, they may stem from their own vivid imaginations.
Regardless of where these perceptions may originate, it’s important to drill below the surface to reveal the truth and to allay any erroneous apprehensions stemming from inaccurate or incorrect information.
That’s when it’s critical to go to someone you trust, and who is well-versed in this highly effective skincare regimen. The trained aestheticians at Ecobeautica Wellness Center in Brooklyn, New York, have been safely and effectively performing diamond microdermabrasion for years, and remain at the cutting edge in this highly dynamic arena. Not only do they use the latest technologies, but more importantly, they customize each patient’s treatment by getting to the root causes of their individual skin conditions in order to determine the most appropriate way to address them.
First, let’s look at what diamond microdermabrasion is. Unlike crystal microdermabrasion that uses inert crystals such as aluminum oxide, magnesium oxide or sodium chloride to abrade the skin, diamond microdermabrasion employs disposable or reusable diamond tip wands made of natural diamond chips. Since no crystal particles are emitted that may be inhaled or blown into a patient’s eyes, the procedure does not require protective goggles. It also leaves no crystal residue on skin or hair.
Well-suited for most skin types and colors, diamond microdermabrasion uses strong suction to slough off the top layer of the epidermis and vacuum dead skin cells off the face or body. Some of the common skin concerns that it can reduce or eliminate include fine lines and wrinkles, acne and its accompanying scars, stretch marks, age spots, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. Safe, gentle and reliable, diamond microdermabrasion requires no chemicals or anesthesia, and skin typically fully recovers within 24 hours. The result? Smoother, softer and more finely textured skin; a brighter and more even skin tone; minimized pores, scars, fine lines and wrinkles; less blackheads, whiteheads and troubled skin due to excessive sun exposure; tighter-looking skin, thanks to the increased collagen production; and an overall refreshed, younger-looking appearance.
And if that’s no enough, microdermabrasion has received positive acclaim from the academic community as well.
During a pilot study on the use of microdermabrasion conducted by scientists from Northeastern Ohio University and The College of Medicine in Ohio, patients with different forms of acne received eight treatments at weekly intervals. While participating in the study, they continued their regular acne medication and received dermatological care. The bottom line? Of the 24 patients who completed the study, 72 percent reported “excellent” or “good” results. In addition, and perhaps more significantly, approximately 96 percent of patients would recommend microdermabrasion to others.
