Dermabrasion with diamonds

In microdermabrasion we use a rotating mechanism to remove dead cells from the surface of the skin, usually on the face but often also on the neck, torso and hands. The removal of dead cells is done mechanically and not chemically (as in peelings).

What are the benefits?

Diamond dermabrasion removes the most superficial layers of the skin. The result is that the skin looks brighter, younger and smoother. Discolorations and other skin irregularities, enlarged pores, fine wrinkles are improved. It offers skin renewal in a completely natural way.

How is skin scraping done?

The outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, is made up of many rows of cells. The most superficial (external) ones refer to dead cells while the deeper ones to cells that mature and rise to the surface. The purpose of microdermabrasion is to gently remove superficial, dead cells and reveal the deepest layers of the skin, thus offering a rejuvenated, soft and clean face full of radiance.

In the past, a machine was used that ejected aluminum or aluminum oxide grains with a controlled momentum.

More recently, however, we have been applying dermabrasion with diamonds. We apply to the surface of the skin a suction device which at its end has a metal head covered with an artificial diamond. When the head rotates it "scratches" gently and controlled the skin. Tailored suction removes dead cells and sebum that slough off the skin, leaving it smooth with no crystal residue. There are different heads and degrees of aggressiveness, and according to the diversity of each skin, the treatment that does not cause irritation is chosen.

It is painless to treat with skin scraping?

Microdermabrasion does not cause pain and does not require the application of an anesthetic cream before the treatment.


What other treatments is skin scraping combined with?

Dermabrasion in our clinic is often combined with a special light herbal peeling to enhance the effect on discolorations and more radiance.

How many treatments are needed?

Usually 4-6 sessions every 7-14 days.

Who should not have skin scraping?

The treatment should not be done when there are skin infections (microbial, herpes or warts) as well as wounds in the area. Be careful with people who take anticoagulant drugs because they may easily experience bruising (bruises). Attention is also needed in people with sensitive skin where the intensity is adjusted accordingly.

What should be done after skin scraping:

Intensive moisturizing of the skin and application of a sunscreen product are usually recommended in the days after the treatment.
