Diamond Micro-Dermabrasion: A girl’s best friend!

A woman on a mission for beautiful skin tries something new…

Ella Cook is thrilled at the opportunity to share her experiences as an inexperienced, yet curious beauty client, and now as an ‘access all areas’ member of the Brazilian Beauty team. Here, she shares her first time experience of a Diamond Microdermabrasion treatment. Read on to hear how she got on…

After too many years of saying to strangers “Wow, you’re skin is sooo amazing!  What’s your secret?” … I decided to take the plunge and spend some time and money on an advanced skin treatment. Now I’m not ready to dive as deep as the titanic, jump into too icy cold water, (think Kim Kardashian’s bloodplasmavamprefacialthing) but I thought it was time for something a little more than my weekly regime.

With difficult skin, I wanted something quick, with little down-time and unlikely to cause any reactions with my skin – I’d heard good things about this Microdermabrasion and thought I’d give it a go… After all, it was fairly cheap and seemed to tick all the boxes!

So a bit of a low down on the treatment:

Diamond Microdermabrasion with Hydra – Clean, the latest in advanced facial technology. The diamond tip exfoliates the outer layers of the skin and removes dead skin cells, while gentle suction to the skin assists in stimulating the production of new cells in the lower dermal layers. The added benefits of Hydra – Clean uses water to deeply cleanse and flush out pores, whilst a second diamond tip further exfoliates and stimulates the skin. This treatment results in healthier, fresher skin with enhanced elasticity and texture. Removing the mature cells from the top layer of the skin encourages fresh cells to be produced and pushed to the surface of the dermal layers, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Sounds good right?? I thought so and it sounded like it would do a better, longer lasting job than my at home scrubs, so I was in.

My therapist at Brazilian Beauty was lovely, reassuring and confident, which is always a plus when doing something new with your face!  During the treatment, the micro machine hummed and buzzed a little and I could hear the suction.  My therapist showed me the tool she would use which looked like a pen with a little ring of crystals around the bottom – the suction was through the tube in the middle.

The Microdermbrasion tools of the trade

It was a strange sensation at first, but in no way painful.  Of course it was abrasive, but didn’t make me flinch, or lash out and whack my therapist by mistake, which, has been known to happen, so I was winning! She drew it across my cheeks, just like a pen and I could feel it sucking all the dirt out of my skin – it was great!  She paid special attention to areas prone to blackheads, like my chin and nose and I felt like she really got in there, the way I would have if I was doing it!

The Hydra-Clean bit was slightly rougher, with a diamond tip in the centre of the pen, and a water-flush-suction-thing around the outside.  But again, it didn’t hurt, just felt fresh and ultra-cleaning. My therapist showed me the cloudy water in the machine after the Hydra-Clean process, it was murky, showing what dirt had been on my skin.

The treatment machine water bottles, you can see the impurities coming right out!

Afterwards, I was treated to some amazing ASI (The Australian Skin Institute) premium moisturiser, Pure Hydration Plus, and a little facial massage. I wanted to fall asleep on the comfy bed at this point!! But alas, the treatment was over.  I was keen to see the results.

My skin felt silky and soft, with a little pinkness – which I was told was normal and good as it meant the capillaries had been stimulated! So even straight away, I noticed a difference.  My skin tone looked even, fresh, plump skin had been revealed, and there wasn’t a clogged pore or blackhead in sight! Woohoo!

My partner commented on my look the next morning.  He didn’t know I’d had the treatment but he said I looked great and my skin looked really good – which was awesome. Sometimes I think he wouldn’t notice if I shaved my head so it must have made a difference.

The true measure of results for me though was when a friend commented on my skin’s radiance.  I was delighted!! No one has ever complimented me on my skin before – I was hooked!! And when I told her my secret, so was she!

I was recommend a course of 6 treatments, which I promptly booked myself in for. It will cost me a pair of expensive shoes, but I couldn’t have put a price on how great those compliments made me feel!! With so many more skin treatments to try, I feel this is just the beginning….

See my before and after pics below: The after was a few days later when I was told I would see the most benefit – I’m sure you’ll agree I did!

The Before & After – I was pretty pleased with these results!

    I definitely have a thing for diamonds – in more ways than one now!

  • Reply Ella Saturday 14th June, 2014 at 1:59 pm

    Yes it’s a pretty amazing treatment! You can’t have it done on active acne but I had a lot of post-breakout blemishes and scarring that it cleared right up! I also take ASI supplements and use their skincare range now… I would highly recommend it! There’s a link to the treatment and the skincare range in the blog.
