Diamond Microdermabrasion FAQs

What is Microdermabrasion?

Diamond Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure which offers safe and controlled skin abrasion and exfoliation.

What happens in a Microdermabrasion treatment?

The Diamond tip gently exfoliates dead skin cells which are vacuumed away. The skin is gently polished as the wand tip glides over the skin. Diamond Microdermabrasion gently removes the epidermal layer of the skin in a controlled manner. As a result, cell renewal is stimulated and the skin surface is rejuvenated. Diamond Microdermabrasion also increases the effectiveness of skincare products because deeper penetration is possible.

Is there any down time after a Microdermabrasion treatment?

There is virtually no downtime. The skin can appear redder than normal which gradually fades within 24 hours. Full after-care advice would be provided by your aesthetic therapist and generally you are able to return to your normal activities straightaway.

How many Microdermabrasion treatments will I need?

At Skin Revival, we recommend a course of treatments for optimal effect. However, the number of sessions depends on the individual’s needs and skin condition. Our trained aesthetic therapists would be able to make an assessment during the initial consultation.

What results can I expect?

The skin appears softer, smoother and more youthful. Many people find that their skin is tighter and the overall skin tone is more even. Fine lines and minor wrinkles appear diminished, pigmentation and age spots appear lighter. Overall, Diamond Microdermabrasion is an excellent way of rejuvenating tired, dull skin.

Is Microdermabrasion suitable for men and women?
