Included is the device itself, the power supply, 6 nozzles (half for vacuum cleaning, the other for polishing the skin), instructions. On the device itself there is a screen and 3 buttons: start / pause, time, rotation intensity (1, 2, 3);
  • “Reeling pro” - combines diamond peeling with a vacuum restorative effect.

There are nozzles with different diameters (3 pieces) and 1 massage.

Technique of the diamond microdermabrasion

The tips of the devices are equipped with abrasive in the form of diamond dust that cleans the top layer of skin, then with the help of a vacuum, the horny particles are removed from the face through the central cavity of the nozzle.

The technique of diamond microdermabrasion in the beauty salon consists of three consecutive actions:

  • skin cleansing with an antiseptic tonic;
  • the use of the apparatus for mechanical grinding;
  • applying a mask or cream.

Such peeling can be applied not only to the face, but also to the décolleté, neck, hands.

Conducting the procedure at home, the skin is not only cleaned, but also steamed over hot water, soda solution or decoction of medicinal herbs, such as chamomile, thyme, calendula, etc. This increases the effect of peeling. Different size of nozzles is provided for ease of use on different parts of the face. One of the three modes is selected based on their sensations and the thickness of the epidermis. The area around the eyes is not affected.

On average, the procedure lasts half an hour, it is carried out once a week, but with too sensitive skin, one is enough per month. The result is achieved after 5-10 sessions, depending on its condition.

Contraindications to the procedure

Diamond microdermabrasion is not carried out in the presence of skin lesions: allergic rashes, burns, including sun, scratches, herpes. It is contraindicated for diabetics, cancer patients with rosacea and dermatitis, and during pregnancy it is quite acceptable.

Consequences after the procedure

After microdermabrasion, slight redness and peeling is possible. But these are normal consequences that will pass by themselves. Complications after the procedure are possible if the recommendations for the care after it were not followed or if contraindications are not taken into account.
