Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion

Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion is a broad term for procedures that are done with a diamond tipped headpiece, with suction to peel off the skin’s outermost layer of dead skin cells. Diamond microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that can be very effective for various skin-related issues, including:

Skin Conditions That Can Be Improved:

 

Diamond Microdermabrasion is able to target a large variety of skin complaints by removing the superficial layer of the epidermis. It can improve skin texture, elasticity and promote collagen. We frequently combine diamond tip microdermabrasion at CosmeDocs with skin peels and medical cosmeceuticals for optimal results. Topical skin creams and serums benefit from enhanced penetration, whilst smoother skin improves makeup application.

For many years, crystal microdermabrasion was the most popular form,but the aluminium oxide crystals that were used could irritate eyes and cause inhalation injury. It was also difficult to avoid the crystals being trapped in hair and clothing. Diamond tip microdermabrasion has gradually being overshadowed it, as it allows a wide range of precision tips to exfoliate the skin with a variable negative pressure vacuum control and can safely treat areas close to the eyes, lips and nose. In addition, each treatment can be tailored for individual clients.


  • Hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin
  • Free-from crystal irritants
  • Superficial and deep treatments
  • Interchangeable precision diamond tips
  • Vacuum control

There are limited side effects with diamond microdermabrasion, which makes it a quick, ideal treatment to promote glowing, refreshed skin. People may occasionally experience mild dryness, redness, scratches or bruising. Aftercare products may be used to soothe the skin and an SPF to protect from the sun.

Does the treatment hurt?

The procedure is usually quite comfortable and even pleasurable. A slight scratching sensation may occasionally be felt. The skin may be slightly sensitive afterwards and suitable post procedure skin creams will be applied.

How long does the treatment take?

Each appointment is 30 minutes. This includes cleansing the skin and applying appropriate post-procedure skin creams.

Can I go to work afterwards?

Yes. However, it is important to note that the skin may be slightly red,so it is best to avoid make-up immediately afterwards.

Will microdermabrasion benefit my skin before I go on holiday?

It is not advisable to have microdermabrasion shortly before sun exposure, as you may be more prone to sunburn and pigmentation.

What are the worst side effects or complications that could occur?

Side effects are generally rare, apart from mild redness and swelling. It is possible for microdermabrasion to activate cold sores can make active acne worsen. Hence, this treatment should be avoided during those periods. Individuals with sensitive skins, have broken capillaries or are on anticoagulants or immunosuppressant will be more prone to worsening dilated capillaries or bruising. Scarring is exceptionally rare but cannot be excluded. It is important to ascertain any pre-existing conditions or medication prior to treatment.

Can I combine microdermabrasion with other treatments to maximise the results?

At Cosmedocs, we frequently combine skin peels with microdermabrasion to optimise the skin reaction and outcome.
