Summary/Abstract: Background: The history of microdermabrasion dates back to ancient Egypt. The first treatment in Europe occurred in 1985 and has since become a popular method of exfoliation of the superficial layers of skin. Microdermabrasion is an effective method of taking care of the skin of the face and body, bringing about immediate effects in the treatment of deep scars and stretch marks. Aim of the study: To determine the effectiveness of diamond microdermabrasion on a person with hyperuricemia of the sebaceous glands. Materials and methods: Based on interviews, a case analysis, and the impact of diamond microdermabrasion on the structure of the skin’s surface, the level of hydration, oiliness and epidermal exfoliation were analyzed. Case report: The subject was a 22-year-old woman struggling with oily skin. A few acne lesions and a large number of blackheads were observed in her nasal area. An interview was conducted prior to the procedure to eliminate any contraindications. The study was conducted within a period of 4 months at 3-week intervals. The Nati Skin Analyzer was used to determine the skin parameters of the patient. Results: After applying a series of treatments using the microdermabrasion apparatus, satisfactory results were obtained in the form of reduced peeled sebum and improved skin hydration in the T and U zones. Conclusions: The study shows that diamond microdermabrasion treatment has a beneficial effect on the patient’s skin condition. Phot ographs before and after the surgery document the positive effects this series of treatments had. There was a decrease in the level of sebum secretion and the elimination of skin changes in the form of acne or open comedones.
