Diamond Dermabrasion is a cosmetic technique that uses a mechanical  medium for exfoliation to remove the  

outermost layer of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface.

Diamond Dermabrasion can provide substantial improvement in irregular skin tones, aged and sun-damaged skin.

It also helps to correct fine lines and 

wrinkles, age spots, and superficial pigmentation. It provides general exfoliation, skin rejuvenation, 

reduces blackheads and whiteheads, and helps alleviate post-traumatic pigmentation.

Diamond Dermabrasion uses stainless steel tips which have finely ground diamonds in the tip. 

It is used with suction, as it exfoliates the debris and dead skin cells from the surface, a light suction gently sweeps it away. 

Considered more hygenic than Microdermbrasion.
