It is a non-invasive procedure and uses small crystals to treat signs of skin aging, such as blemishes, fine wrinkles, dull and dull skin, with the advantage of not causing bleeding and recovery is very fast. Or other substances that cause a “mechanical peeling”, eliminating the most superficial area of the skin.
Microdermabrasion is split crystals eliminating the stratum corneum (layer more superficial than where the dead skin cells are) at a predetermined pace. When crystals are used, the particles remove dead cells which are separated and sucked out by the same piece of equipment.
Aluminum oxide crystal equipment is the most used because of its thick and irregular surface, and because it is not absorbed by the skin, it does not cause allergic reactions. They also have antibacterial properties, which is an advantage for acne treatments.
Equipment without crystals uses diamonds on the tip of its piece to cause the abrasive effect. These can be of different sizes and thicknesses depending on the depth you want to reach. The dead cells that are separated are sucked through the same piece where the diamonds are, into a waste filter.
The difference between crystals and diamonds, is that equipment that uses crystals can pose a risk to the operator and the patient, as small particles of crystals that are released during procedures can cause irritation and damage to both the skin and the skin or in the eyes.
