Diamond Peel: The Magic Wand Treatment
Ever wished you could wave a magic wand over your face and reveal beautiful skin underneath? Well, now it’s virtually possible! Discover the magic of a diamond peel facial and see superb results for your complexion.
Dull and lifeless looking facial complexions are usually a result of dirt and dead skin cells that slowly build up over time on the skin’s outer layer.This build-up clogs our pores and causes us to suffer acne and breakouts too. A diamond peel facial addresses this problem by exfoliating the top layer of skin and removing excess oil, dirt and dead cells on the surface to reveal brighter, younger-looking skin beneath.
What Is a Diamond Peel Facial?
The diamond peel facial treatment gets its name from the diamond chip-coated wand that is used to reduce blemishes and exfoliate the surface of your skin. It is an effective facial procedure for anyone struggling with:
- Sun damage
- Acne prone and blotchy skin
- Fine scars and slight wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Non-inflamed whiteheads caused by keratin-clogged pores
- Unfavorable skin texture
Diamond peel facials are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment which offers instant clarifying results, and have become the favourite of many women. The natural or synthetic diamond chips used (according to the preference of the salon) gently sloughs off the dead skin cells and vacuums them away.
Results are visible after the very first session.
The diamond micro derm machines usually come with wands that vary in size and coarseness so that the treatment can be tailored to different skin types. With the use of the slimmer diamond-tipped wand, your therapy technician is able to abrade the areas closer to your eyes and mouth more accurately with no danger of damage or crystal ingestion as with traditional microdermabrasion treatment.
The procedure lasts around 45 minutes and is painless, the only thing you’ll feel is a vacuum-like sucking sensation. Also, as the treatment is non-invasive—unlike other cosmetic surgeries involving injections or more abrasive peel treatments—even teenagers may undergo the procedure.
A diamond peel facial is very similar to the mechanical exfoliation technique that is employed in regular microdermabrasion. The difference is that a diamond peel treatment uses a disposable or reusable diamond-tipped wand of various sizes and coarseness to yield greater results.
Standard microdermabrasion employs a fine sandblaster-like device to spray tiny aluminium oxide crystals across the skin. These are then immediately vacuumed away along with the dead skin cells.
The wand of the diamond peel treatment means that delicate problem areas such as crow’s feet and lip wrinkles are treatable. Traditional microdermabrasion tends to avoid these areas for fear of stray crystals getting into the eyes and mouth.
Diamond Peel Risks and Benefits
As it is non-invasive and non-surgical, the treatment holds little risk to any healthy person, though it is not recommended if you suffer from inflamed acne or other broken skin conditions. Minor redness and soreness may occur if you have sensitive skin but this will only last for a few hours following your session. Once your session is over, you can continue with your normal daily activities directly afterwards.
It is also possible to undergo a diamond peel facial in conjunction with other skin treatments, just ask your CoLaz technician for advice on the best complementary therapies.
