What is Microdermabrasion (Crystals)?
Microdermabrasion is a form of surface exfoliation that is performed using a powerful, electric vacuum. This minimally invasive procedure consists of high-grade microcrystals made up of corundum powder or aluminum oxide being sprayed across the face with a hand piece then vacuumed off afterwards. Microdermabrasion treatments are usually quick (about 30 min) and can be offered alone or as part of a facial.
Who is it for?
Those who cannot tolerate acid such as chemical peels are great candidates for this procedure. The reason for this is that microdermabrasion exfoliates at the skin’s surface as opposed to penetrating the skin like a chemical peel would. This allows clients with different skin types achieve overall similar results.
Who is not a candidate?
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for pregnant women or those with sensitive skin, rosacea, or deep scars. Those who have auto-immune disorders, unstable diabetes, or facial warts are also not advised to receive this treatment.
What are the benefits?
The microdermabrasion procedure can be used to help diminish sun damage, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarse skin. In addition to helping address these skin conditions, microdermabrasion helps with the renewal of the overall tone and texture of the skin. This minimally invasive procedure triggers a wound response in the skin, which in turn pushes the skin to repair.
