As a top rated New York spa it is up to us to stay ahead of the spa trends and offer innovative treatments at a conservative cost. With the many new and emerging techniques available for men and women to achieve younger looking skin, it often becomes difficult to decide on which treatment is the best for you. At Dyanna Spa, microdermabrasion is among one of the most popular age-reducing treatments we offer, however some woman still remain unaware of the wonderful benefits microdermabrasion treatments offer.

How does microdermabrasion work?

 Microdermabrasion is considered one of the most effective, non-surgical methods for removing acne, impurities, blotchy spots, sun spots, age spots, wrinkles, and scars on the face through specialized techniques of exfoliating the epidermis, which is the top layer of ones skin. First, your skin is cleaned with a special cleansing gel. Next the technician uses what is called a microdermabrasion wand that gently shoots out aluminium oxide micro-crystals which remove dirt oil and all other impurities from all areas of skin, not just acne prone areas. The used micro-crystals are then sucked away in a vacuum, leaving skin soft, bright, and irresistibly smooth. After the microdermabrasion has been completed, a nourishing sun-blocking cream is applied to ensure that no damage will be done to your newly fresh skin.

What are aluminium oxide micro-crystals?

Aluminium oxide micro-crystals are dormant material which is the second hardest mineral compared to diamond. They’re irregular shape and toughness make them one of the most effective minerals for removing impurities from skin. Aluminium oxide micro-crystals are non-allergenic, non-carcinogenic and are safe if accidentally ingested.

How long does the microdermabrasion procedure take to complete? Microdermabrasion is often a very quick procedure. It can vary anywhere from 10-35 minutes depending on the type and depth of skin being re-surfaced.

How often should you get microdermabrasion treatments?

In order to see the best results over time, it is suggested to receive a microdermabrasion treatment once every 3 months  in order to maintain smoothness, and significantly reduce wrinkles over time.

What steps should you take to care for your skin after a microdermabrasion treatment?

After microdermabrasion treatment is completed, there are a few necessary steps to take in oder to keep skin as fresh and clean as possible.

1.) For the first 24 hours after the procedure be sure to moisturize as skin may be left feeling dry

2.) Avoid strong sun exposure for the first week as the effects of a sun burn will be significantly more severe

3.)Do not use any peeling protectants 3-4 days after microdermabrasion is completed

4.) Do not wear any liquid or powdered face makeup as it will clog freshly cleared pores

SPRING CLEAN YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE!

It’s March and the long cold months of winter are slowly coming to an end. As the days are getting longer and the temperatures warmer, we are starting to look forward to the beginning spring. Soon enough we are going to switch from coats and boots to shorts and flip-flops.
We know there is nothing worse for your skin than long, harsh, cold months of winter season, and though we may have been attentive to our skin over the cold winter months, when spring arrives, you typically have to switch up your beauty regime to match the weather.
We’ve been moisturizing the essentials: your hands, feet and face but just because the sun is lingering longer every day does not mean that you can now stop!  Despite deep moisturizing of your skin over the winter months, your skin may be looking duller, drier, redder and more wrinkled after the tough season because your skin may have gotten accustomed to the beauty regimen and it has become less and less effective.
This spring, switch up your beautification process and head into spring with your best face forward.  Do some much needed spring cleaning in the skin department!
The beauty experts and aestheticians of Gramercy Park NYC’s Dyanna Body & Nail Salon-Spa  offers a variety of ways you can rejuvenate and revive your skin and feel great about it for the coming months.
  1. Your face is usually the first thing anyone sees when they meet you. Make sure you make a good impression! Let’s make the best possible skin to show off around New York City. At Dyanna Spa, you can pick from a variety of facials to fit your specific skin type and your desire. Try the European Moisturizing Facial to soothe dry and rough skin after winter, or try a highly rated Diamond Microdermebrationthat will noticeably take years off your face and make your skin feel revived and clean.
  2. If you are like many women, you have probably paid a lot of less attention to bod hair during winter months, you may be facing a major de-fuzzing & hair removal process come spring and summer time. Don’t worry! Dyanna Body & Nail spa makes it’s priority to provide the best and most up to date waxing hair removal to our customers including leg, arm, face, back, chest, bikini and brazilian waxing. We use special AZULEN ALOE wax formula that works effectively to remove hair gently, painlessly, safely and quickly.
  3. Last but definitely NOT least, your hands and feet have suffered enough! The hands are directly exposed to the wind and cold weather during the winter, and there is nothing worse for your skin then that exposure. The skin becomes dry, scaly, sometimes red and even wrinkled! The feet, cannot be ignored either. Even though we went the whole winter not paying much attention to our feet, it is almost time to show them off in your sandals and flip-flops, so let’s get them in order. The best thing you can do at this point, is MOISTURIZE both hands and feet! NYC’s Dyanna Body & Nail Spa offers many ways to do just that. Try our new Brazilian Manicure and Pedicure, which hydrates and softens the skin on your hands and feet like no other. Our professional and courteous technicians, do not use water or creams for this treatment, instead they use a specially lined gloves to moisturize the skin of hands and feet and strengthen the nails!

What is Microdermabrasion? Diamond Microdermabrasion Vs. Crystal

What is Microdermabrasion?

A lot of our customers that frequent Dyanna Body & Nail Spa in New York City- have been asking about what Microdermabrasion actually is. We see products with this word in the title, we see celebrities talking about it, but very few know what the procedure actually involves, how it is done, and what the different types are.

In short, Microdermabrasion is the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin.

According to SkinAbrasion.net “Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. It’s a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers. It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through. This layer is home to many minor skin imperfections like fine wrinkles and blemishes.”

If you remove or break up the stratum corneum, the body translates this as a mild injury and quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones. In the first hour after treatment, this may cause mild swelling and redness. Depending on the person, these side effects can last from an hour to two days- so it’s important to note that you should not perform a microdermabrasion treatment the day of an important event.

The benefits of Microdermabrasion:

  • With the upper skin layer gone, the skin’s surface is visibly improved.
  • The healing process creates newer skin cells that look and feel smoother.
  • Some of the skin’s imperfections, like sun damage, blemishes and fine lines, are removed.
  • Also, without this top layer serving as a barrier, medicinal creams and lotions are much more effective with more of their active ingredients able to find their way down to the lower layers of skin.

There are 2 kinds of Microdermabrasion techniques that are commonly used: the Crystal and the Diamond method. The crystal method has been known to be a bit rougher on the skin and for that reason the staff at Dyanna Spa in Gramercy Park Salon, NY ONLY uses the Diamond Microdermabrasion method.

Some Benefits of Diamond vs. Crystal Microdermabrasion:

The regular crystal micro microdermabrasion technology involves the use of a special, hand-held device that propels a high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin. At the same time, the machine’s vacuum system sucks away dirt, dead cells and used crystals.

The diamond microdermabrasion system, on the other hand, replaces the micro-crystal flow with a disposable or reusable diamond tip wand. Areas closer to the eyes and mouth can be abraded more accurately with diamond abrasion (no risk of stray crystals causing damage or being ingested). Diamond microdermabrasion machines usually come with tipped wands of varied size and coarseness for different skin types and depths of resurfacing. The wand tip is made of natural diamond chips which polish the skin and remove dead cells, which are then vacuumed back into a waste filter. These natural diamond tips are easier to control and don’t irritate the skin (natural minerals are less likely to trigger adverse reactions).
