What to Expect During a Diamond Peel Procedure

Updated on September 30, 2013

Everybody wants youthful and glowing skin. But the combination of pollutants, daily stress, sun exposure and aging can take a toll to the point that they make the skin look saggy, tired and dry. How the skin looks in the outside can affect a person on the inside.

One may feel unattractive and suffer from low self-confidence. Fortunately, there are a number of cosmetic procedures that can be performed to revive the skin’s youthful look, such as Diamond Peel.

Before Beginning With The Procedure

Before beginning with the procedure, the skin should be cleaned using a cleanser or foam recommended by the dermatologist. It will then be followed by the application of a cream and facial massage. The cream will then be cleared to be followed by the Diamond Peel procedure itself.


Diamond Peel Procedure

Diamond Peel is a form of microdermabrasion procedure which uses a special hand piece with diamonds on its tips. The process includes suctioning or vacuuming the dead skin cells, dirt and other skin debris to rejuvenate the skin. It is a painless and non-invasive and results can be observed after a series of sessions.

If you have skin problems and you think Diamond peel is the procedure you need, you should first become acquainted of how it is performed to know what you should expect.

The dermatologist will use a special wand with crushed diamonds on the tip to exfoliate the epidermis, or the upper layer of the skin. The tips have varying sizes so they can reach the small corners of the face, such as around the nose and eyes. There are also wands with varying coarseness to cater to the level of the skin’s sensitivity. The process leaves behind little trails of diamonds on the skin which cleans the epidermis and reduce pore size.

A facial mask will then be applied, however, this is optional for some skin clinics. Some offer it as part of the package or it can be availed for a different price. Finally, a cream with SPF will be applied to protect the skin against sun damage. The patient may then use make up or powder and go on with her daily routine.

How Often Diamond Peel Session Can Be Done?

The over-all procedure may last from 20-40 minutes, depending on the severity of skin issues. Getting a Diamond Peel for stretch marks may last up to 2 hours. The patient may go back for another session after every 2 or 4 weeks, or as recommended by the dermatologist.

Diamond Peel Benefits

The patient may observe improvements in the skin after the first session. However, to see more improvements, a series of procedures is recommended as this is a progressive treatment.

You don’t have to worry if your skin looks tired or stressed as Diamond Peel can help you achieve skin that looks radiant and young. In order to ensure that you get the best results of a diamond peel, do a lot of research on skin clinics offering this procedure, compare prices and make sure to have a licensed and reputed dermatologist perform the job.
