I had my first Diamond Microdermabrasion treatment today at Jade’s Beauty Rooms in Golcar, Huddersfield. A few of my friends have already had these facials and raved about the positive affects on their skin, so I thought I would give it a try.
So what is Diamond Microdermabrasion??? Basically it is a procedure whereby the outer dead surface layer of skin is rubbed away very gently and involves using a Diamond tipped head with a rough surface to gently exfoliate the skin and then suck up the residue (nice!!) This is said to help encourage the production of new skin cells, with the results being smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.
After cleansing my skin, the treatment began. As I have not had this treatment before Jade used a gentler head to start with, so as not to aggravate my skin. The head is then moved slowly around and over your face and the exfoliating process begins, it is a strange sensation but not at all painful. It felt like really gentle suction on my skin. It took around 20-30 minutes for the whole process and then a moisturising mask was applied for around 10 minutes. As soon as she had finished, I could feel how soft and smooth my face felt. I asked if I could see what had been removed on to the pads which they use and I could see the powdery remnants of dead skins cells ( gross i know, but it was nice to see how much she had actually removed.) After the mask was removed, Jade applied sunblock and advised me to stay out of the sun.
I had expected some redness after the treatment, but there was none ( and a day later my skin is fine.) My skin just looked really healthy and glowing and felt really smooth. A course of treatments is recommended to get the best results and I have already booked two more facials.
Jade currently offers a standard 30 minute treatment for £35. However, you can buy a course of 3 for £85.
