Some people may hear the phrase “microdermabrasion” and think that it’s an abrasive, painful procedure. They couldn’t be farther from the truth – microdermabrasion is actually safe, gentle and non-invasive, making it the ideal treatment for helping troubled skin recover from excessive sun exposure and the ravages of time.
But before we even start to explain about diamond microdermabrasion and its many benefits and applications, do you know what’s really causing your skin concerns? Have you scratched below the surface to determine the root cause of your blemishes, wrinkles or stretch marks? When you think about it, it’s hard to make a confident diagnosis if you don’t really understand why and how your skin arrived at its current condition. And that’s where a holistic medical spa such as Ecobeautica Wellness Center in Brooklyn, New York, can help.
Because they utilize a whole-body approach, they’ll consult with you to learn about your unique history, lifestyle and health conditions. Once they’ve gotten a good feel for your individual situation, they’ll determine exactly what skincare treatment will be most appropriate and effective for you. For instance, if a hormonal imbalance is causing your problems, they may suggest balancing your internal hormones at the same time you treat your skin externally.
For many people, that form of treatment will be diamond microdermabrasion, as it’s well-suited to most skin types and colors and can be effectively utilized to alleviate a myriad of common concerns. It’s kind of a “jack of all trades” in a way, because it can be used to address everything from hyperpigmentation, acne and sun damage to tired complexions, stretch marks and wrinkles. Not only that, but it’s appropriate for men and women of all ages.
So how does it work? Using disposable or reusable diamond tip wands made of natural diamond chips, diamond microdermabrasion employs strong suction to slough off the top layer of the epidermis and vacuum dead skin cells. It also removes the skin around the wrinkles, making them less visible, while cleansing pores and unplugging blackheads. As it’s working its magic, it also stimulates new skin growth and the production of collagen – helping to reduce age spots, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and fine lines on the forehead and around the mouth.
As you can imagine, the end result is pretty impressive. People who have indulged in a series of diamond microdermabrasion treatments report softer, younger-looking skin; smaller and more refined pores; less-noticeable dark or age spots; a more even skin texture; and a glowing, radiant complexion. And there’s no downtime, so you leave the medical spa feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to resume your day without missing a beat.
Diamond microdermabrasion can be a very effective remedy for lusterless, aged and damaged skin, especially in concert with a well-balanced diet, adequate hydration, quality sleep and a consistent daytime and nighttime skincare regimen. But before you consider this or any other treatment, be sure to consult with your primary physician to determine if this is an appropriate course of action for you.
