The Benefits of Diamond Microdermabrasion
One of the most popular cosmetic skin treatments available is diamond microdermabrasion, a procedure that is praised by men and women alike.

It’s appropriate for most skin types because it is non invasive and can effectively reduce or eliminate wrinkles, acne, age spots, stretch marks and more.

How does it work?
In this type of treatment dead skin cells are exfoliated and vacuumed off the face with a microdermabrasion machine that uses micrdermabrasion tips covered in tiny diamonds. This procedure doesn’t cause any particles to be emitted that can get into the eyes and mouth, and is regarded as an especially safe form of treatment.
The diamond tips together with the strong suction make it possible to exfoliate the skin more thoroughly than other procedure. With the flexibilty of using different suction levels, it also increases blood flow to the skin, and that in turn helps to produce collagen. If you are looking for a fast reliable treatment for skin issues like wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, uneven skin tone and stretch marks, this procedure is recommended.

Microdermabrasion can be performed once a month, for best results it should be incorporated it into your monthly facial.
