2 – 10 treatments are recommended (usually 6) every 1-2 weeks (every 14 days in case of the first three treatments), depending on the indications and needs of the patient. After each microdermabrasion, the improvement is more and more visible. In order to maintain the obtained effects another session is recommended every 4-6 weeks.
Microdermabrasion treatments can be conducted for all types of skin (from the seborrheic and acne skin to sensitive and dry skin, from light to strongly tanned, from pale to well supplied with blood) and every part of the body, e.g. the face, neck, décolletage, back, hands or legs.

A modern technique
Microdermabrasion is a modern technique of mechanical exfoliation of the horny layer. Due to the immediate effects, it belongs to the most popular treatments among the clients. During the diamond microdermabrasion treatment the effect is obtained by the action of abrasive heads covered with a diamond layer and a pump intaking the horny layer. Unlike the similar systems available on the market, natural diamond is used in the device (instead of artificial diamond or microcrystals of unknown origin). The treatment technique is similar to corundum microdermabrasion. However, the use of corundum or other abrasive powders can cause a deposition of the powder particles in the skin, the long-term effects of which are unknown, and can cause allergic reactions. In case of diamond, microdermabrasion there is no similar risk. This technique allows a gradual, controlled, mechanical abrasion of the skin, layer by layer, until the demanded effect is obtained, regarding the individual needs of the skin.
The removal of the outermost layer of the epidermis stimulates also the production of collagen and elastin, and the natural growth of the new tissue. The skin becomes smoother, brighter, more fresh and elastic after the first treatment. A deep microdermabrasion shallows scars and stretch marks, reduces or eliminates fine wrinkles, reduces the pore size and discolorations. The histological changes refer not only to the epidermis but also the dermis (the treatment stimulates the microcirculation and lymph flow, accelerates the removal of toxins out of the deep skin layers).
An undoubted advantage of the treatment is the fact that it is painless, simple, and short and after the procedure, the patient is not excluded from the everyday life.
Beside the microdermabrasion of the face, neck and décolletage, in our office there are also available the treatments of the buttocks, tights, back etc. (there is a special attachment for this purpose).
