Crystal Microdermabrasion is an ABLATIVE procedure that will remove the outer surface of the skin by means of force or friction. Crystal microdermabrasion treatments involve the use of a handheld device that propels a high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals that are ‘blasted’ out onto the skin. At the same time, the machine’s vacuum system sucks away dirt, dead cells and used crystals.
Diamond Microdermabrasion is an ABRASIVE procedure that will remove the outer surface of the skin by means of scratching, grating or sanding.
Diamond microdermabrasion treatments are completed by the use of a diamond-tipped wand that’s used to ‘scratch or sand’ away the top level of the skin, while the machine’s vacuum system sucks away dirt, debris and dead cells.
In the Easiest Terms
Crystal treatments can be compared to ‘sandblasting’ while diamond treatments can be compared to the use of ‘sand paper’. Some additional facts to consider-
It’s generally accepted that crystal (aluminum oxide) microdermabrasion will produce a deeper 'peel or exfoliation' than a diamond treatment. However, with an experienced therapist who would be able to use the correct amount of flow, pressure and suction, either treatment would offer a good result.

Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective alternative to the use of chemical acids; the results are more predictable and can be accomplished in gradual stages with no downtime or redness. In most cases you’ll see an immediate result with a quicker recovery. No anesthesia is required. The process requires no healing time and can be done on your lunch break. Results are immediate with smooth, glowing skin and overall tone and texture improvements. Makeup or moisturizer can be applied to the treated area and daily activities can be resumed.

"I’d highly recommend this spa to everyone. From the day I scheduled my appointment, there was nothing but professionalism. When I arrived I was greeted by name, and the lady at the front desk was so welcoming and professional. The atmosphere was relaxing and all of the staff was amazing, inviting, and super pleasant. I received a steam bath, body wrap, and facial, and from start-to-finish it was beyond amazing! It's definitely worth every penny."
