DivaDiamond Microdermabrasion Facial


 

 

Microdermabrasion (aka "microderm") is a non-surgical exfoliating treatment that can improve your skin tone and texture. The treatments are effective on all skin types who have mild to moderate skin concerns, except the super sensitive and those suffering from skin disorders such as rosacea and active inflamed acne.  Fine lines, wrinkles and the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation are greatly reduced. There is no down time involved with this treatment and proper use of moisturizer for your skin type and sunscreen is highly recommended. Sessions are scheduled 2-3 weeks apart. Once results are achieved, maintenance care is done every 30-60 days. This treatment includes an initial consultation with skin analysis, microdermabrasion treatment, custom masque, neck and shoulder massage, serums, moisturizers and sunscreen to rehydrate and protect your new skin. A series of 6 or more is highly recommended for best results.

**Results from this treatment will vary based on the current health of your skin, your age, your lifestyle, and adherence to post microderm instructions provided by your esthetician.

Possible Side Effects:

Potential side effects of microdermabrasion are minimal and this is a very safe procedure. Potential drawbacks are very limited in that microdermabrasion only affects the epidermis, which is the outermost skin layer. Common minor, temporary side effects include:

  • Skin tightness
  • Redness
  • Skin sensitivity
  • Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Small skin abrasions
  • Spots of bleeding
  • Minor Bruising (especially if you are taking aspirin or other blood thinners)
  • Fine Broken blood vessels (telangiectasia)
  • Cold sore reactivation around lips    
  • Dryness, peeling, flaking
  • Darkening of the skin                                                                                           

As a general rule, the greater the potential benefits with a cosmetic treatment, the greater the potential risks and side effects. The possible risks with more aggressive treatments like dermabrasion and laser are much greater than microdermabrasion.
