Microdermabrasion is a safe, progressive approach to skin care that was developed in
Italy in 1987. Using vacuum, and sometimes positive pressure, the machine and the
specially-designed handpiece allow micro-fine aluminum oxide crystals to pass over the
skin. As the crystals make contact, they actually blast off a thin layer of the outer skin,
The handpiece then vacuums off the dead skin and crustal particles. The procedure
exfoliates the dry, dull skin, while stimulating circulation and collagen production.
Each treatment removes one to two layers of dead skin cells, depending on
the condition that is being treated. The depth of treatment is determined by the trained
esthetician and controlled through the speed of the handpiece, crystal flow and
the number of passes. Each treatment is customized and patients can be treated
at their own comfort levels.

Is Microdermabrasion painful?
