What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique. Today, this cosmetic procedure is popular in day spas and medical spas.

The dead layer of the skin on the face is removed by light abrasion with a device like a fine sandblaster, which sprays tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead cells and the stratum corneum of the skin(dead outermost surface of the skin), gently and painlessly.

The exfoliation not only removes dull dead skin but also goes on to stimulate the production of new skin cells. This makes it an ideal treatment of choice for scars, open pores, fine lines and mild acne.

It is also used to remove sun-damaged skin, lessen scars and dark spots, and for the treatment of acne, however this must be repeated periodically to be effective. Recently, more and more women and men are trying microdermabrasion, instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery.

Aluminium oxide crystals are used in microdermabrasion because their strong ability to exfoliate, as well as their hardness, which is second only to diamonds.

Aluminium oxide crystals don’t cause allergic skin reactions, such as eczema, psoriasis, or itching; they don’t interact chemically and are not absorbed by the skin.

Finally, Aluminium oxide crystals have bactericidal properties which are a plus for blemished skin.
