Skin Care Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion resurfaces your skin using tiny crystals to safely “sand” your skin. This removes the dead cells to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion. This treatment thickens your collagen, a protein that makes your skin look plump. Microdermabrasion can improve:

  • Sun damage and age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores, by reducing or eliminating them

What can an enzyme peel do for my skin?

Enzyme peels use fruit enzymes to speed up the natural chemical reactions in your skin that renew skin cells while also exfoliating dead cells. These facial peels diminish scars, age spots, fine lines, and discoloration while penetrating the skin to cleanse pores and improve tone and texture.

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are more intense than enzyme peels, reaching a deeper layer of the skin. This skin resurfacing treatment uses a special solution to improve the texture and tone of your skin by removing the top damaged layer, improving the appearance of sun damage, acne, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, dry or scaly patches, and scarring. They work on your face, but can also work on your neck and hands. These treatments are cost-effective and quick.

What are the benefits of facials?

A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. These relaxing treatments cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish the skin, resulting in a clearer, more well-hydrated complexion. You will also receive advice on the best way to take care of your skin from an experienced professional.

White Diamond Medical Clinic and Spa offers a number of different facials, each targeting differing skin needs. Options include:

Corrective Facial

Addresses a variety of skin conditions such as aging, acne, dehydration, poor elasticity, rough texture, or dullness. Designed to improve overall skin health, corrective facials work best with a series of multiple treatments.

Signature Red Carpet Facial

A "full suite" treatment, this anti-aging facial rejuvenates the skin. It includes deep cleansing, the elimination of sluggish dead skin cells, a customized enzyme mask, medical grade booster serums, and LED Red Light Therapy.  All of these elements synergistically work together for optimum results.

Bright Skin Vitamin C Facial

This facial utilizes vitamins A, C, D, and E to address hyperpigmentation issues, firmness, and tone, while repairing other conditions caused by everyday environmental factors. It includes a medical grade brightening booster serum and enzyme masque to reinforce brightening and strengthening of the skin. It can also prevent future damage while reducing fine lines and wrinkles, making you appear younger and healthier.

White Diamond Sensitive Skin Facial

This facial is perfect for sensitive to reactive skin types. You can expect gently resurfacing, clean pores, redness reduction and calming with the perfect blend of botanicals, while stimulating circulation and collagen production.

White Diamond Hydration Plush Facial

This intensive hydrating facial focuses on replenishing your skin’s moisture balance. Hyaluronic acid hydrators visibly plump your skin to smooth out fine lines.  This treatment cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates, and nourishes skin for a noticeable improvement in texture and overall appearance. This facial is ideal for dull and moisture depleted skin.

White Diamond 30 Minute Express Facial

Sometimes called "the lunch time facial," this mini facial is ideal for an instant glow before a special occasion, as it quickly exfoliates, hydrates, nourishes and boosts cell turnover.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure that uses tiny needles to puncture the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen in order to heal. As a result, the new collagen builds up to smooth and plump the skin and results in:

  • Skin tightening, lifting, and rejuvenating
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Significant improvement in stretch marks
  • Minimized pores
  • Reduction in the appearance of surgical and acne scars

Microneedling usually involves multiple treatments over several weeks. The procedure is safe, and the newly produced collagen will last for several years.
