Diamonds in Skincare
Microdermabrasion with Diamonds, the ultimate skincare treatment
Guest Written by Kelsey McGillis
Diamonds are forever and your skin’s radiance can be too. You already know that a diamond statement piece can garner attention and complete your outfit, but you’re perhaps not as familiar with incorporating diamonds into your skincare routine. In recent years, diamonds have seen increased publicity in the beauty industry, especially among celebrities.
However, you don’t have to be A-lister to experience the benefits of these luxurious ingredients. There’s a variety of products containing diamond dust on the market that can take dull, drab skin to the next level. And luckily for you, many of these treatments are readily available.
Toronto Dermatologist, Dr. Lisa Kellett explains “there’s a microdermabrasion treatment we perform that uses fine diamonds to exfoliate the stratum corneum to slough off dead skin”. At her Yorkville clinic, DLK on Avenue, diamonds are used in the skin polishing brush. This approach provides a less abrasive treatment than comes with larger diamond particles, while still revealing rejuvenated refreshed skin.
You may wonder, is this glamorous treatment worth all the hype? While diamond is an inactive ingredient (meaning it doesn’t continue its’ work once it has been wiped off the skin), its’ exfoliation abilities can definitely be verified. Dr. Kellett says “If you look at the thickness of the skin before and after, the Diamond Peel is very effective.” Additionally, diamond powder is known for its brightening effects on the skin if used to the right percentage, and treatment is performed by a professional.
Look, aging is inevitable but with innovative new ingredients becoming available every day, everyone can find their unique solution to their skin problems. You don’t have to be a celeb to reap the benefits of luxury products anymore, but the results will have you feeling like one. I guess diamonds will truly always be a girl’s best friend.
