What is Diamond Peel?
A Diamond Peel is a crystal-free microdermabrasion. During this procedure, a state-of-the-art diamond tipped hand piece will be used to gently remove the dead cells 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 blasts a stream of crystals onto the skin and then removes them from your skin via suction, the Diamond Peel uses a diamond tipped precision hand piece to gently exfoliate the skin. The risk of crystal microdermabrasion is that some crystals can be inhaled or can tear the skin or even stay lodged in the skin after the procedure. Because the procedure can be very messy when crystals are used, these old systems are being phased out. 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, whiteheads, oil and dirt. The Diamond Peel is excellent for anyone whose skin is dull, flaky, dry, and anyone with clogged pores. The Diamond Peel can also help improve the appearance of brown pigment spots and wrinkles, and can also help patients with mild to moderate acne by opening up the pores and allowing them to breathe.
What is the treatment like?
Microdermabrasion treatments are not aggressive; they are gentle and progressive, and best of all, they work! Most patients find Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion treatments to be quite relaxing. The treatment is like a "superficial skin polishing". In as little as thirty-five minutes, this gentle technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Following the treatment, we will apply toner and creams to further soften and moisturize your skin.

She will then determine the best approach for your particular concerns. Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly and prepped with a degreasing solution which will allow the Diamond Peel to more effectively remove the dead cells.
