They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And while it’s true that physical attractiveness is a subjective thing, it’s hard to imagine anyone feeling especially confident or pretty when they look in the mirror and are faced with unsightly pimples, angry pustules and acne scars.
Acne is the bane of adolescence, but it’s surprisingly not limited to just teenagers. Newborn babies can have it, and adults may still struggle with it well into middle age. Acne strikes frequently and indiscriminately, affecting men just as much as women. And as an equal-opportunity skin condition, it causes all who suffer from it the same degree discomfort and embarrassment.
Most people start with topical creams purchased at the drugstore, and then move on to prescription ointments and antibiotics. But what else can be done to improve the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines and uneven skin tone? The answer: diamond microdermabrasion.
Effectively utilized at Ecobeautica Wellness Center – Dr. Sergey Kalitenko’s medical spa in Brooklyn, New York – diamond microdermabrasion is the jewel in the crown of skin treatments. It’s simple, non-invasive and virtually pain-free, is suited for most skin types and colors, and causes no scarring or skin color change. Best of all, it’s quick and reliable, producing softer, smoother treatment within a series of treatments.
Diamond microdermabrasion is unique in that it uses disposable or reusable diamond tip wands made of natural diamond chips. Wands come in various sizes and levels of coarseness to address disparate skin types and depths of resurfacing. The diamond tips in conjunction with strong suction exfoliate and vacuum dead skin cells off the face, with the added flexibility of being able to vary suction levels to increase blood flow to the skin. Dirt is stripped from pores and blackheads are unplugged – resulting in skin that looks younger and tighter, and feels smoother and healthier. And if you’d like to take your skin remedy to yet another level, the combination of diamond microdermabrasion with oxygen infusion works particularly well in addressing mild acne and alleviating the appearance of disfiguring acne scars.
Let’s face it: no one wants to endure the physical and emotional ravages of acne any longer than they have to. For some, topical creams and/or prescription drugs may be the answer. But for those for whom they’re not, or would like an additional approach to healing and improving acne-riddled skin, diamond microdermabrasion may be the answer. Be sure to consult with your primary physician or dermatologist to see if it might be an appropriate therapy for you.
