One of the most popular cosmetic skin care treatments available is diamond microdermabrasion. No chemicals or anesthesia are used in the procedure, which is known for being simple and pain-free. It’s appropriate for most skin types because it is non-invasive, and can effectively reduce or eliminate wrinkles, acne, age spots, stretch marks, and more.
In this type of microdermabrasion a diamond pen is used. The diamond tip itself acts like sand paper and loosens the dead skin cells which are then sucked away. New younger looking skin is revealed. In Diamond Microdermabrasion the roughness of the diamond tip can be varied depending upon the skin type.
To suit your skin needs. We can mix and match microdermabrasion with LED therapy.
LED light therapy
It was first used by the U.S. Navy SEALs in the 1990s to help heal wounds quickly and to help regenerate damaged muscle tissues.
Since then, the treatment has been researched for different frequencies in aesthetics. It’s mainly noted for increasing collagen and tissues, all of which can smooth out your skin and reduce the appearance of damage from age spots, acne, and wrinkles.
There are different frequencies, or wavelengths, used with LED light treatment. These include red and blue light frequencies. They are readily absorbed into the skin without containing harmful ultraviolet rays.
Red, or infrared, light is used for treating the epidermis (outer layer of skin). When the light is applied to your skin, the epidermis absorbs it and then stimulates collagen proteins.
In theory, more collagen means that your skin will look smoother and fuller, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red LED light is also thought to reduce inflammation while improving circulation, which can give you a healthier glow.
Blue LED light therapy, on the other hand, targets the sebaceous glands. Also called oil glands, these are located beneath your hair follicles.
Sebaceous glands are necessary for lubricating your skin and hair so that it doesn’t dry out. However, these glands can become overactive, leading to oily skin and acne.
The theory is that blue LED light therapy can target these oil glands and make them less active. In turn, you may see fewer acne breakouts. Blue light can also kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin, which can help treat severe acne pimples, including cysts and nodules.
Oftentimes, blue light is used in conjunction with red LED light to help treat acne, decrease scarring, and promote anti-inflammatory effects.
