The diamond microdermabrasion is a treatment very effective in minimizing or eliminating acne scars, what is sought is to improve the appearance of deeper scars.
In cases of depressed scars, the results are excellent, for it is first applied a technique of “punch elevation” to lift depression and one or two weeks after the microdermabrasion is done.
To determine whether a mark is a candidate for this treatment is to stretch the skin in the area with both hands and if the scar improvement is a sign that will have good results with treatment. Surface scars up to 80% better with the diamond peel, and in severe cases the benefits are reduced by 20% and 40%.
To combat acne scars can complement the diamond with mandelic acid chemical peels, glycolic acid, resorcinol and salicylic acid. The sessions have to be done every 14 to 21 days and to get the best results it takes about 5 to 10 sessions.
