Is Dermabrasion the Answer to Age Spots and Fine Lines?
Aesthetica badges

In aesthetic skincare, the pursuit of flawless, youthful skin never ends. With countless treatments vying for the spotlight, DiamondGlow emerges, promising results for those looking to combat age spots and fine lines. But what makes DiamondGlow the choice for discerning clients at Aesthetica?

DiamondGlow Unveiled: Not Just Another Dermabrasion

DiamondGlow isn’t merely a dermabrasion technique; it’s an experience. This advanced treatment uniquely combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of condition-specific serums into one simultaneous process. This three-fold approach ensures that skin isn’t just treated and nourished, leaving it radiant and rejuvenated.

Addressing Age Spots With Precision

Age spots, colloquially termed as ‘sun spots’ or ‘liver spots,’ manifest as small, flat, brown patches on the skin, predominantly appearing in areas frequently exposed to the sun. With age, their prominence can increase, marring the uniformity of one’s complexion. As a testament to the enduring quest for immaculate skin, these marks often become an unwelcome reminder of sun-soaked days without adequate protection.

Why Do Age Spots Occur?

The primary culprit behind age spots is prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun or tanning beds. UV light accelerates the production of melanin, a natural pigment that gives color to our skin, hair, and eyes. When melanin is overproduced in certain areas, age spots appear.

The DiamondGlow Approach to Age Spots

DiamondGlow’s unique approach to tackling age spots is multi-faceted:

  • Precision Exfoliation With Diamond-Tip Technology: A diamond-tip handpiece is at the heart of the DiamondGlow treatment. This advanced tool meticulously exfoliates the skin’s surface, explicitly targeting the epidermal layers where melanin clusters forming age spots are more concentrated.
  • Infusion of Targeted Serums: Exfoliation is just the starting point. Once the skin is primed, DiamondGlow introduces specialized serums tailored to address hyperpigmentation. These serums are imbued with ingredients that inhibit melanin production, like vitamin C, niacinamide, and licorice root extract. Over time, with consistent treatments, age spots fade, and skin gains a more even-toned appearance.
  • Stimulating Cellular Renewal: The precise exfoliation and serum infusion combination accelerates cellular turnover. Fresh, new skin cells replace older, pigmented ones, reducing the visibility of age spots.

Ensuring Long-Lasting Results

While DiamondGlow offers a potent solution to age spots, maintenance and protection are essential. Implementing a daily broad-spectrum sunscreen, opting for antioxidant-rich skincare products, and scheduling regular DiamondGlow sessions can mitigate the recurrence of age spots and bolster overall skin health.

Smoothing Out Fine Lines

Fine lines, often called ‘expression lines,’ are those subtle creases that begin to form primarily around our most expressive facial features: the eyes and mouth. These lines stand as gentle reminders of our emotions, experiences, and time, resulting from a combination of repetitive facial expressions, sun exposure, and the natural aging process.

Decoding the Genesis of Fine Lines

Collagen and elastin, two primary proteins in the skin, maintain our skin’s firmness and elasticity. However, their production diminishes over time due to various external and internal factors. The skin’s ability to snap back or remain taut lessens, leading to the formation of fine lines.

Another contributor is the repetitive movement of facial muscles. Just as a repeatedly folded piece of paper eventually shows a crease, our skin, subjected to years of smiling, frowning, or squinting, begins to deliver these lines.

DiamondGlow's Strategy for Fine Lines

DiamondGlow addresses fine lines with a strategic and multi-pronged approach:

  • Deep Exfoliation with Diamond-Tip Technology: By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, DiamondGlow facilitates the emergence of newer, fresher skin. This softens the appearance of existing fine lines and prepares the skin for more effective serum absorption.
  • Collagen Boosting Infusion: Post-exfoliation, the skin is treated with a potent blend of peptides and hydrating agents through DiamondGlow’s unique serum infusion process. These ingredients stimulate collagen production, restoring some of the skin’s lost elasticity and volume.
  • Enhanced Skin Hydration: Fine lines are more noticeable on dehydrated skin. DiamondGlow’s infusion process ensures the skin is adequately hydrated, making it appear plumper and reducing the prominence of these lines.

Maximizing and Maintaining Results

Beyond the treatment room, maintaining the benefits reaped from DiamondGlow requires diligence. Implementing a consistent skincare regimen rich in retinoids, peptides, and hyaluronic acid can further combat the progression of fine lines. Moreover, daily sun protection can shield the skin from premature aging caused by UV rays.
