Microdermabrasion, that word that is so hard to pronounce and remember, but what is it exactly? A hair treatment, a surgical procedure, a peel? Many people have heard of microdermabrasion, but few know exactly what it is and what it is used for. Let us break it down for you!
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that gently removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. Over time, the skin accumulates cellular debris that prevent the renewal of the cells that make up the epidermis, block the effective penetration of cosmetic products and cause imperfections. Microdermabrasion is then used to deeply exfoliate the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation spots, lighten dull skin tone, fade acne scars, stretch marks and more. The specialists who offer this treatment are usually aestheticians. The procedure takes 20 to 30 minutes and can be combined with other aesthetic treatments. It is not painful and may take from one to a few sessions to achieve the desired results.
The different types of microdermabrasion
There are two main types of microdermabrasion: microcrystals and diamond tip. Microcrystal microdermabrasion involves corundum powder that is sprayed onto the skin in a uniform stream and is simultaneously suctioned away. Corundum is an abrasive stone that is almost as hard as diamond and is hypoallergenic and inert. This type of microdermabrasion allows for a precise and in-depth treatment of imperfections on the face and body.
Diamond tip microdermabrasion offers a gentle exfoliation and is particularly suitable for more sensitive skin. It is also ideal for treating more delicate areas such as the eye area. The surface of the nozzle that is applied to the skin is made up of abrasive microfragments. The exfoliating action is thus carried out by friction with the surface layer of the epidermis while a suction system eliminates the debris and other dead skin thus released.
Microdermabrasion with Safina
So, if these two methods are effective and proven, couldn’t they be combined on the same device? This is what Dectro International is proposing with its new microdermabrasion technology! The Safina Pro device allows these two techniques to be used jointly in order to fully exploit their distinctive strengths.
Safina also distinguishes itself by offering 2 types of microcrystals: ultrafine and fine. Ultrafine microcrystals are ideal for all skin types, even the most sensitive. Very versatile, they allow for precision work on all areas of the face and body. As for the fine microcrystals, they are more abrasive and therefore recommended for areas where the skin is thicker. They are also unequalled in their effectiveness in reducing the most stubborn imperfections that require in-depth work.
Equipped with intelligent functions that allow you to personalize the treatment according to the area treated, the gender, the type of skin and the sensitivity of the client, Safina is designed to maximize comfort, safety and efficiency during your treatments. A true little gem!
To sum it up, no matter which microdermabrasion method you choose, the ultimate goal is to obtain effective results. And to achieve the desired results, the device used is of paramount importance! It must be powerful enough to deeply exfoliate and visibly reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, while offering the possibility to work gently on more sensitive skin. Finally, the treatments must be comfortable, safe, and performed by a certified esthetician specially trained in this technology. With Safina, all this is now possible!
