Diamond Peel: What to ask your Dermatologist

Do you have a lifeless-looking and dull skin? And have you ever wondered how the rich and famous keep their skin looking soft and smooth? One of the ways they achieve this is with a skin treatment called The Diamond Peel. A lifeless-looking and dull skin is the result of dead skin cells and dirt building up on the outer layer of the skin. This results in pores getting clogged up which can cause breakouts and acne. So if facials, chemical peels and homecare products don’t do the trick anymore, the FormaTK Diamond Peel treatment is for you!

What is a FormaTK Diamond Peel treatment?

Most people will probably be more familiar with the term microdermabrasion, which is a mechanical exfoliation technique through which all excess oil, dead cells and dirt on the surface of the skin gets removed to reveal the brighter, younger skin cells underneath. This is a non-invasive, mechanical procedure with the aim to remove dead skin cells, excess oil and dirt on the skin surface. This treatment will improve the appearance of skin by revealing radiant and younger skin in an instant. This is an effective treatment if the client is struggling with fine scars.
In other words, this microdermabrasion technology reveals a smoother skin by sloughing off skin impurities. This treatment is recommended if your goal is to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce acne breakouts or even out a patchy complexion.
The FormaTK Diamond Peel treatment uses a diamond-coated disk which allows for peeling and polishing the skin, reducing blemishes, fine lines and other skin imperfections. There are various diamond-coated disk sizes to target hard-to-reach corners in order to treat the whole face. Your therapist will determine and adjust the system’s settings during your treatment to alter it according to what your skin’s sensitivity is.
Even though The Diamond Peel treatment is a great way to get your skin looking amazing, not a lot of people know about it. What’s more, the treatment isn’t designed for everyone. So, if you’re looking into this microdermabrasion treatment, remember to give your dermatologist a call and clarify a few things beforehand. And while you have him on the phone, here are a few questions to ask:

Ask your Ddermatologist:

1. Can I combine microdermabrasion with other skin treatments?

If you’re planning to get other treatments such as Skin Tightening, or if you’ve recently had an injury and are still treating it, then it is best to ask your dermatologist if it is safe for you to get a microdermabrasion treatment.
Additionally, you can take this opportunity to have your dermatologist explain to you how the procedure works and what you can expect from it.

2. Will there be discomfort during treatment?

Generally speaking, the microcrystals used in microdermabrasion are harmless. And with that said, most people who get the treatment don’t experience any discomfort. But if you’re still worried, you can ask the dermatologist if there will be any other type of discomfort or pain that you can expect to experience.
What’s more, you can visit your dermatologist for a skin check-up. They'll clarify if any of your allergies or your current diet will cause a negative reaction during the treatment.

3. Where can I do Microdermabrasion on my body?

Want to get microdermabrasion on a certain part of your body but are unsure about the treatment's safety? The treatment treats as the ability to rid you of stretch marks and wrinkle. This might tempt you to try it out on your face or other body parts.
But before you do anything, and to avoid any injuries or any other regrets, take the time to ask your dermatologist if this treatment will be safe for you.

4. Is getting the treatment ideal with my current health condition?

When you have the sniffles and you still choose to get the treatment, will you face any consequences? Hopefully not. It will not hurt to talk to a professional and ensure that you will be okay. Who knows, maybe will need a few days to rest up before going to the spa.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to know more about skin treatment. It’s smarter to do research to ensure you are safe, before diving headlong into something you may regret.
