What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a system of intense exfoliation and resurfacing that rejuvenates the skin by using ultra-fine crystals (corundum, organic, salt).
These crystals strike the skin to remove its outer layer, known as the stratum corneum. At the same time, a vacuum tube sweeps up both the crystals and the skins cellular debris. It is used for skin resurfacing and treating a range of skin abnormalities.
What are the uses for Microdermabrasion?
Since the combination of skin exfoliation with slight suction stimulates the production of new, living cells at the base level of the skin, the result is healthier, fresher skin with enhanced elasticity and texture. Over the series of treatments, you will also notice a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, tightening of enlarged pores, elimination of blackheads and whiteheads, reduction of scarred tissue (such as acne or chicken pox scars ), and a reduction of blemishes caused by sun damage.

How many Microdermabrasion treatments are needed?
Depending on what type of skin problems you are trying to correct, the typical series of treatments would be 5 to 8. These treatments would ideally be 7-10 days apart, and no longer than 14 days. The skin needs ample time to regenerate between sessions, therefore it is not recommended to have treatments before this time.
What kind of maintenance procedures should be followed?
Microdermabrasion can be a dehydrating procedure, so it is important to follow up with a proper home care routine. Your Endless Solutions clinician will advise you on the best skin care for your particular skin type and condition. Sunscreen is a must, and should be worn at all times.
What is the difference between crystal and non-crystal treatments?
Crystal mode allows you to perform the treatment with fine inert micro crystals that are jetted across the skins surface and then vacuumed back up. It is the preferred technique at Clairderm. Non-crystal mode is performed with a separate attachment called a diamond head. There-are no crystals used, and the skin is exfoliated and controlled by the vacuum pressure of the skin against the diamond chips.
