The use of tiny particles which are blown against the skin to remove the damaged or aging outer layer and to stimulate the growth of new cells.
Treatment to counter-effect signs of aging, sun damage, fine lines, and mild acne scarring to face, neck, arms, and hands. Sterile micro-crystals gently exfoliate the top layer of dead cells, then are suctioned away so that fresh skin is exposed. Several treatments with intervals are usually required.
Procedure in which small crystals are sprayed onto the skin. Its works best on dull skin, brown spots, acne scars, and age spots.
Removing the top layer of skin (usually on the face) by brushing it with tiny aluminum crystals or another abrasive material in order to diminish the appearance of fine lines and even out pigmentation.
a simple way to maintain healthy skin year round, to complement your home skin care regimen
Aluminum oxide crystals are projected onto the skin in a uniform manner to exfoliate layers of the epidermis. These crystals, along with dead skin cells, are vacuumed into a closed filter container and discarded. A control gauge allows for increased vacuum for a more aggressive peel and decreased vacuum for a more gentle peel. Microdermabrasion leaves skin smooth and clean with mild erythema. Blackheads are loosened, whiteheads become unsurfaced, hyperpigmentation lightens and acne scars, enlarged pores and epidermal wrinkles become less prominent. Blood, containing oxygen and nutrients, is drawn to the surface to feed and repair cells. Microdermabrasion is performed in a doctor's office by a doctor, esthetician or nurse or in spa by an Non-ablative skin rejuvenation - non-invasive treatment to reduce the signs of aging; does not require the removal of surface tissue to accomplish collagen regeneration, wrinkle reduction and a more youthful appearance.
A technique using tiny particles that pass through a vacuum tube which gently abrades the skin surface, smoothing it and stimulating new cell growth.
The use of aluminum oxide crystals, which are blown against the skin and removed, to eliminate the outer layer of the skin and stimulate growth factors.
A technique that uses tiny particles that pass through a vacuum tube gently to scrape away the ageing skin, resulting in gentle abrasion or a "polishing" process that stimulates the growth of new skin cells.
a special microdermabrasion "sandblaster" sprays tiny crystals onto the surface of the skin, mixing this gentle abrasion with light suction to remove the outer skin layer.
Microdermabrasion is a resurfacing of the skin that requires no recovery time. This treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. The Dermaster machine used for this treatment rapidly dispenses sea salt to defoliate the skin.
Treatment that uses tiny crystals to remove layers of dead skin cells from the face. Encourages collagen elastin growth.
The skin is treated with a fine mist of crystals under pressure and vacuumed, which causes a deep exfoliation. This creates an immune response that causes new, fresher and firmer cells to form in the skin.
Aluminum oxide crystals are deposited on the skin surface under pressure, similar to mild sandblasting, and suctioned away. Dead epithelial cells on the surface of the skin and oily plugs in pores are removed. Collagen formation is stimulated by the mild, controlled injury.
Removal of the outer dead layers of skin
A skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging.
Delivery of minute aluminum oxide crystals to the surface of the skin for the purpose of gently removing layers of the epidermis, resulting in healthier, younger looking skin. Used to treat the signs of aging, acne and other superficial scars, and to treat a variety of skin conditions.
a treatment that involves a device that gently sloughs the dead skin cells while removing them
Most commonly, fine white aluminum oxide crystals are sprayed over the skin's surface resulting in a so-called “polishing” process; a treatment that generally results in inflammation & irritation of the skin.
An intensive treatment for deeply penetrating pore-cleansing and skin-cell exfoliation. Usually in the form of abrasive cosmetic materials (sponges) or compounds (scrubs etc), they are designed to remove dead skin at home by various degrees of cutting and friction. Often, if they are aggressive enough to perform well, they can cause irritation by abrading the skin. If not aggressive, the benefits are minimal.
gentle skin polishing technique used to give skin a healthy radiant glow
a facial mini-peeling or mini-sanding technique used to remove the top layers of skin using either chemicals or abrasive agents such as diamond dust. This is performed by an aesthetician to lessen the appearance of facial wrinkles and improve the aging appearance of the skin. The results remain for three to six weeks before it needs to be repeated. back to the top of page
A mini-peeling with minimal risk of dyspigmentation or scarring that is achieved by projecting aluminum micro-crystals onto the skin (also referred as the "Power Peel," "Euro Peel", "Parisian Peel" and "Derma Peel"); safe for all skin types
Facial exfoliation procedure in which skin is "sandblasted" with ultra-fine crystals of aluminum oxide or other ingredients to remove top layer of skin.
A skin treatment modality that gently abrades the skin surface, stimulating collagen growth and reducing fine liens, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation (sun damage).
a technique using sand crystals and a vacuum to remove superficial skin cells and improve minor skin imperfections
A skin resurfacing procedure using topical preparations and tools that slough off dead skin cells.
An intensive exfoliation process that rejuvenates the skin by utilizing ultra-fine aluminium oxide crystals to remove the upper layer of the stratum corneum (microderm, microdermibrasion, microdermebrasion, microdermbrasion, microderma)
During this exfoliation procedure, the skin is 'sandblasted' with fine crystals, leaving a new vital layer of skin.
Microdermabrasion (often referred to as Microderm) is a cosmetic procedure popular in day spas, doctors' practices, and medical spas, in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion. Different methods include mechanical abrasion from jets of zinc oxide or aluminum oxide crystals, fine organic particles, or a roughened surface. Particles and removed material are vacuumed off through the wand/handpiece through which the abrasive particles come Anderson, Laurence. 2006.
