Even, smooth, clean — this is how perfect skin is described. Unfortunately, this ideal is rare. Acne marks, enlarged pores, uneven relief — all this does not have the best effect on the beauty of the face. In many cases, light superficial peels cannot deal with all skin imperfections. One of the more intensive procedures for smoothing and rejuvenating the skin is diamond resurfacing or diamond peeling. MedAboutMe will talk today about the features of this precious procedure.

What is diamond grinding?

Diamonds are not only jewelry, but also a material that will smooth out age-related changes and significantly improve the condition of problem skin. Diamond microdermabrasion is not a completely new procedure (the first devices, much inferior to modern ones, appeared more than twenty years ago), but it is still called “innovative” because it has become one of the best achievements in aesthetic medicine in the field of mechanical peels.

Diamond resurfacing is a type of hardware peeling. In traditional microdermabrasion, aluminum oxide crystals are used — these are microcrystals with high abrasive properties. Diamond polishing uses diamond dust, which is more gentle on the skin. For this reason, the procedure is less traumatic and in most cases does not cause pain. What’s more, this precious procedure is so delicate that it can even be used to resurface the delicate skin around the eyes.

How is the peeling procedure?

The peeling procedure is carried out using an apparatus with replaceable nozzles coated with diamond dust. Each nozzle has its own degree of intensity of grinding and the degree of graininess, which allows them to be used not only for the skin of the face, but also for the body. Also, the device has a vacuum suction system.

The principle of operation of the device: a nozzle with a rotating tip, coated with diamond dusting, removes the upper stratum corneum of the skin. At the same time, vacuum stimulation of the deeper layers of the skin is carried out, and all exfoliated particles and impurities from the pores are absorbed under the influence of vacuum, and thanks to the lymphatic drainage and massage effect, an additional effect is provided — the procedure relieves puffiness, improves complexion, eliminates signs of fatigue.

Is it only the peeling effect that can be expected from diamond polishing? In addition to removing the stratum corneum and leveling the surface of the epidermis, the procedure improves the general condition of the skin: it tones, noticeably improves complexion. Due to the fact that grinding removes the upper dry layer of the epithelium, the synthesis of new cells, the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated.

By improving blood circulation and stimulating lymphatic flow, the procedure provides cells with additional nutrition. The effect of diamond microdermabrasion extends not only to the surface layer, but also reaches the basal layer of the dermis. The skin is renewed, fine wrinkles are smoothed out, the face looks refreshed and rejuvenated.

Thanks to the synthesis of new cells, the functions of protecting the skin from external influences are improved, and the accelerated production of its own collagen by the cells makes the skin more elastic and supple. The renewed epidermis becomes more receptive to nutrients, the cells absorb and retain moisture better.

Diamond peeling, removing the damaged layer of the epidermis, is effective for fighting striae (stretch marks), scars, scars, acne marks.

Benefits of the procedure

Benefits of the procedure

Diamond resurfacing is a more delicate procedure compared to laser resurfacing, since microcrystals do not injure the epidermis. For this reason, the procedure does not cause severe pain and is performed without anesthesia. However, some discomfort during peeling can occur if the skin is thin and sensitive.

Another advantage of the “precious” procedure is the absence of thermal effects. In other words, the skin does not heat up, as, for example, with the same laser resurfacing. Therefore, the recovery period after diamond peeling is reduced to the use of professional soothing masks. Moreover, after processing the cover with a diamond-coated nozzle, the skin does not peel off.

On average, the procedure lasts about an hour, and the positive effect is visible immediately after the first procedure. You can return to your usual way of life in a day without fear that your face will look reddened.

Since even such delicate polishing is in any case a peeling, in the first days after the procedure, a feeling of dryness and tightness of the skin is possible. Therefore, it must be moisturized daily.

Precautions and contraindications

Like all grinding procedures, diamond peeling is contraindicated during periods of high solar activity. The ideal time for peeling is late autumn and winter, and even during this period, the face should be protected with products with SPF filters.

It is better to refuse diamond peeling during pregnancy and lactation, if there is inflammation, abscesses, rosacea, open wounds on the skin. Among the contraindications to the procedure: diseases of the cardiovascular system and kidneys, diabetes, herpes, tuberculosis.
