This particular facial was a surprise to me. Using my imagination, I proceeded to visualize how this might work. First the diamonds would be cleaned. Then they would have to be grinded down to a fine power which would be applied to my face. The dermabrasion would begin and ouch! Well...something like that.

Actually this is more to the truth:

  • Using crushed diamonds this is one of the latest breakthroughs in dermatology.
  • The diamond peel treatment is much like a microdermabrasion.
  • It is a less invasive and more comfortable process because there is no chance of stray crystals damaging the skin.

And then theres the weather that film stars are exposed to which causes another whole set of problems.
