What is Diamond Peel?
A diamond peel is a crystal-free microdermabrasion. During this procedure, a state-of-the-art diamond cut handpiece with a sandpaper-like surface will be used to gently remove the dead skin and debris on the outer layer of your skin, leaving smoother, cleaner, brighter skin.
How is the Diamond Peel different from regular microdermabrasion?
Unlike traditional crystal microdermabrasion, which blows crystals on the skin and then removes them from your skin via suction, the Diamond Peel uses a diamond-cut precision handpiece to gentle exfoliate the skin. The risk of crystal microdermabrasion is that some crystals can tear the skin or even stay lodged in the skin after the procedure. The procedure can also be very messy if crystals are used. The Diamond Peel is safe, effective, gentle, clean, won’t leave any residue on the skin, and allows you to see exactly how much dead skin and debris is removed.
What does the Diamond Peel do for the skin?
The Diamond Peel gently, safely removes the outer layers of the stratum corneum, and any debris on the skin such as surface blackheads, oil and dirt. The Diamond Peel is excellent for anyone whose skin is dull, flaky, dry, dirty, and anyone with clogged pores. The Diamond Peel can also help improve the appearance of brown spots and wrinkles, and can also help patients with mild to moderate acne by opening up the pores and allowing them to breathe.
Does the Diamond Peel hurt?
No, the Diamond Peel does not hurt. You may feel some abrasion and suction but there is no pain involved.
