First developed in Italy in 1985, Microdermabrasion has become an increasingly popular non-invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation. The process of a SkinBase Microdermabrasion (MD) facial involves the abrasive action of aluminium oxide crystals, along with a suction action, to gently remove dead skin cells and surface debris. The procedure is simple, quick, and painless, with no downtime.
How does it all work?
During treatment, Aluminium oxide crystals gently ablate the skin. The SkinBase microdermabrasion machine works using vacuum pressure. The machine draws crystal particles, under suction, through the small hole at the end of the handpiece and over the skin. At the same time, sucking away the dead skin and used crystals. The used crystals and the outermost layer of skin are then collected in a reservoir (disposable jar) and discarded safely and hygienically.
