Clear-Effect : Detailed

The clear-effect crystal microdermabrasion system provides superior treatment results, which translates into client satisfaction, referrals, and business and revenue growth. Most clear-effect microdermabrasion patients see improvement after just a few treatments! Our microdermabrasion skin care equipment uses a hand piece to gently vacuum crystals onto the surface of the skin and resurface the superficial layers of the skin. As the crystals contact the skin, they remove old, dead, and flaking skin cells and exfoliate and polish the skin beneath.

How Microdermabrasion Works?

Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses tools or products designed to rejuvenate and restore natural glow to the skin. The microdermabrasion procedure is simple and painless AND (this is the best part) is equally effective to surgical procedures (laser skin resurfacing, dermal abrasion) and chemical peels (for superficial skin imperfections only).

It was originally performed by plastic surgeons who used hand-held machines (similar to sandblasters) to spray and circulate high-pressure crystal flow onto the skin.

The best part of microdermabrasion is that while it's equally effective to other, more invasive skin procedures, it allows you to get back to your daily routine immediately afterwards. One hour after treatment you could go back to your office or home, doing your routine work. There is a trade-off, though -- you may need between 5 and 12 microdermabrasions, scheduled 1-2 weeks apart for best results.

How Can Micro Dermabrasion Treatment Help?

It is the least invasive dermatological procedure (compared to dermabrasion and laser resurfacing).
It is more affordable than cosmetic surgery.
Micro derma abrasion is painless.
It has the fewest side effects and it is effective on all skin types and colors.

The Basics

Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. Many different products and treatments use this method, including medical procedures, salon treatments and creams and scrubs that you apply yourself at home. It's usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. Before we can understand how microdermabrasion does what it does, it's important to understand how skin works.

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.

When you put lotions or creams on your skin, some of the moisture passes through the stratum corneum, but not all of it. This layer is home to many minor skin imperfections like fine wrinkle lines and blemishes.

All of the action in microdermabrasion takes place at the level of the stratum corneum. Since it only really targets the epidermis (and not the dermis), it is more accurate to call it micro-epi-dermabrasion. Affecting deeper layers of skin would be painful and harmful, and it would risk permanently embedding the tiny grains into the skin.

Cautions on Microdermabrasion

- Check on the training of the person who is going to give you the microdermabrasion treatment. Results depend in part on their expertise.
- Make sure all traces of the aluminum dioxide is removed from your skin.
- Apply sunscreen and stay out of the sun after your treatment. Along with the dead skin cells, you have removed some of your protection.
- Microdermabrasion is not recommended for sensitive skin, skin that easily reddens (called couperous), or skin with acne breakouts.
- Aging skin is already thin. Overdoing microdermabrasion treatments can make it even thinner.
