What is the difference between Crystal, Diamond and Hydro microdermabrasion systems?

Microdermabrasion Crystal system:
Consist of a compressor that draws in air through a hand-held stainless steel or glass wand. When the wand touches the skin a vacuum effect is created. The crystals we used at Paulina de los Reyes Makeup Beauty Skin Clinic are :
What is the best skin to for crystal microdermabrasion? Not all skin types are suited to have Crystal Microdermabrasion system. This particular system is more recommended to thick, oily, scarred and though skins. Definitely not recommended for sensitive or compromised skins.

Microdermabrasion Diamond head system: Microdermabrasion system with diamond head is a much more gentle system than crystal head. A diamond tipped hand piece is use and a filter is placed so the dead skin sits on the filter, you wont believe how much dead skin as well as residue of skincare product is sitting on your skin till you see the filter. The hand piece mechanically abrades the skin and the same as the crystal system a vacuum is created polishing away the top level of the skin while the vacuum sucks dirt, debris and dead cells.

We are not lying on how positively dramatic improvements in your skin conditions and texture can be obtained. Even after one session of microdermabrasion reductions in uneven textured skin, scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, and superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots are visibly improved. All systems of microdermabrasion can also encourage active skin products such as Collagen, Vitamin C, Vitamin B3 and B5 and Vitamin A to work in half the time, allowing them to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin faster.

  • Improving acne and congestion by drawing out blockages and blackheads.
  • Improving clarity and smoothness of the complexion.
  • Increasing oxygen levels in the skin to assist with skin regeneration.
  • Stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin.
  • Prepares the skin for maximum absorption of active ingredients.

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Scar reduction
  • Excessive oil production
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Enlarged and open pores
  • Superficial age spots
  • Dull, stressed, and congested skin

What effects will be visible post treatment?
Microdermabrasion is a very safe and non-invasive procedure to have as it mainly targets the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. It is normal to have a little shedding or some flaking post your treatment as the skin has been finely polished and new skin cell generation is getting rid old dry skin.

What can I expect from my first treatment of microdermabrasion
Post your treatment skin may feel warm and will definitely straight after your treatment your skin may be smooth and warm to touch, as the circulation has been increased. Skin also may appear flushed and slightly red but nothing intensely red. You will notice an immediate visible result straight after your first treatment, an improvement in the skins texture, reduced blackheads, fresher more even skin tone and a radiant glow.

Is it safe to have before an event?
Microdermabrasion is completely fine to have days leading up to an event as it will give the skin a beautiful exfoliation and skin will be glowing! We wouldn’t recommend having micro done on the day of an event. If you haven’t ever had it done before as a precaution book your in your treatment a week before your event. Although a few days or week before is completely fine as your skin will be looking its most glowing, radiant and healthy due to new skin generation.

Maintenance
Whilst great results can be achieved in one treatment, for optimal and ongoing skin health it is recommended regular 4-6 weeks to have treatment done dependent on skin type and concerns. Maximal results will be achieved if an on-going set of treatments is practiced.

Is it okay to have facial waxing done before or after having microdermabrasion done?
Waxing on the day is not recommended to have, we would recommend either after or a few days before.

Is it okay to combine microdermabrasion treatments with a peel?Your skin condition and type will make this call together with your therapist. If your skin is suited definitely a peel will be recommended. Of course a mild peel or what we technically call Glycolic peels, AHA’s peels, Multi-Fruit peels and Lactic Peels are usually ok. If your therapist after analising your skin believes a peels can maximise results, do not worry she will walk you every step of the way. You will walk out with a fantastic and glowing skin that is a promise.
