Microdermabrasion with DiamondTomeâ„¢ Skin Resurfacing


April 8, 2014 - 8:21 pm

When I turned 30, I was all set to fight off wrinkles and prevent grey hair (age gracefully, so to speak). Little did I know I'd have to battle pimples, too! People say 30 is the new 20, but for me, it seemed more like the new 15! So I behaved like any 15-year-old would, I picked. And I squeezed. And I poked. And I prodded. In the end, I was left with angry marks all over my face. Gross. Acne at 30? It just doesn’t seem fair!

Adult Acne

I then started doing research and even went to several dermatologists. What did I find out? The cause of acne is the same at any age: overactive sebaceous glands. However, your treatment options are very different, and it is because the majority of acne treatments in the market are designed for teenagers with oilier skin, but as we age, our skin naturally produces less moisture. That means the usual over-the-counter medication like benzoyl perxoide will not only kill the acne-causing bacteria, but will also accelerate the effects of aging on the skin. And that's something I DEFINITELY do not want to happen. In turn, adults with acne problems may turn to cosmetic procedures.

One such procedure is microdermabrasion, which can improve skin texture, reduce blackheads and whiteheads, and lighten hyperpigmentation. In addition, by reducing surface cell build-up, microdermabrasion allows your home products to work more effectively. It is also non-invasive, is pain-free and requires no down time.

DiamondTomeâ„¢ Skin Resurfacing System

Here at Blink, we use the medical grade DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System. The topmost layer of skin is removed by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips bonded to the tip of the wand, while vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a controlled manner. Removing this outer layer leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin. Unlike other exfoliation treatments, the DiamondTome. Skin Resurfacing System uses no loose abrasives to contaminate you or the environment.

Of course, microdermabrasion has varied effects on different people. I recommend that you try it for one session at a time instead of getting the multiple session packages that most other spas and clinics offer. This way, you can asses how your skin feels after each session and decide whether to continue or not. Fortunately, Blink has a Microdermabrasion Special this month for only $79.99!

These days, all the stress and worry from adult acne is slowly disappearing, only to be replaced by worries about this new business! That's life.
