Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive, skin resurfacing procedure that gently exfoliates & polishes away the top layer of dead skin cells, while stimulating collagen growth, to reveal healthy new skin that looks and feels smoother. Fine lines, blemishes, dull skin and sun spots can be improved, especially with regular treatments.

Crystal Microdermabrasion
For this type of microdermabrasion, a handpiece emits crystals onto the surface of the skin, resulting in a gentle abrasion or "polishing" process. Then the dead skin cells along with the crystals are suctioned immediately off the skin. This is a painless, low-risk skin treatment that can be added to your beauty routine.

When to Consider microdermabrasion 
• If you want to brighten your skin and have a healthy glow
• If you have sun damage, acne scars, or fine lines
• If your pores are clogged and you often have blackheads and/or whiteheads
• If you want to maintain healthy, clear skin

Pros
• Immediate result with no downtime, pain, or side effects
• Improved look of scars, wrinkles, and skin spots
• Effective for all skin types and colour

Cons
• Cannot help serious skin conditions such as deep acne, active rosacea, eczema or dermatitis
• Requires multiple sessions and maintenance treatments for maximum effectiveness
• Skin may feel sensitive and be sensitive to the sun immediately after treatment
These are the top three pros and cons to weigh when considering microdermabrasion. If you want to focus on what is unique to you, please consult with your beauty therapist.

Are you a good candidate for a microdermabrasion?
There are virtually no skin type limitations for microdermabrasion. The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider this procedure:
• You want to brighten your skin and have a healthy glow
• You have sun damage, acne scars, or fine lines
• Your pores are clogged and you often have blackheads and/or whiteheads
• You want to maintain healthy, clear skin

Micro Lift

Micro Lift, a popular treatment for aging skin, uses low level electrical current to trigger the body’s natural skin enhancement chemicals at a cellular level, giving skin therapists an effective tool against the signs of skin aging. While alternative medicine practitioners use it for injury recovery, skin therapists note that it provides firming and toning benefits that continue to improve with subsequent treatments.

Micro Lift can be performed to achieve the following benefits:
• Improve muscle tone in the face and neck
• Lift jowels and eyebrows
• Reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
• Improve facial circulation
• Aid in lymphatic drainage
• Enhance product penetration to treat multiple skin problems

Muscle Re-education, the process of lengthening or shortening muscles, is mostly related to the term “facial toning.” Sometimes referred to as MENS (Muscle Electrical Neural Stimulus or Minimal Electrical Neural Stimulus), Microcurrent re-programs the muscle fiber, allowing the muscle to lengthen or shorten depending on the direction of the application.

The procedure sends a current to lift and re-educate muscles. Some machines used in Europe and in medical environments cause a muscle contraction. In the United States, if used by a professional skin therapist within their scope of practice, Microcurrent cannot cause a visible contraction. There is no actual muscle contraction, and probes allow the skin therapist to pick up the muscle and hold it in place for a few seconds. The current stimulates Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide that can accumulate in the muscles themselves. It is vital that the therapist knows all 32 of the muscles on the face, their origins, their insertions and their bellies.

The current stimulates Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide that can accumulate in the muscles themselves. It is vital that the therapist knows all 32 of the muscles on the face, their origins, their insertions and their bellies.

When a muscle lengthens or shortens, the skin lifts and firms. Working from the belly of the muscle outward will have a lengthening effect on muscles that have become increasingly contracted from years of making facial expressions. Working a muscle from the origin and insertion point inward will have a shortening effect that is necessary for those muscles that have become elongated over many years of age and gravity.

Muscle Re-education uses micro amps (a very low concentration of electrical current), square wave technology and hertz. This makes the procedure significantly more comfortable for the client.



Specific Iontophoresis

Specific Iontophoresis, another form of Microcurrent, allows for superior penetration of water based products into the skin. During this treatment, electrical current emits from one probe and returns to the other to allow specific focus of product penetration. The results of this procedure vary depending on the type of product you’re using. Specific Iontophoresis does not require an inactive electrode. It uses modulated biphasic square wave technology, which lets the skin therapist oscillate a direct current in between 2 electrodes every 2 to 2 1⁄2 seconds. In other words, the electrode alternates from positive to negative about every 2 seconds. Specific Iontophoresis uses microamps, a low level of electric current, which is gentler for the client.

Advanced devices can specifically control the depth at which the current travels, and therefore, the depth that the product penetrates. This allows the skin therapist to target specific areas of concern. However, a heavy layer of product, high surface tension or a resistant or thicker patch of skin in the application area can easily persuade the electrical current and product to enter into a weaker area of the face or body.




The Range of Microcurrent

Overall, Microcurrent is an effective professional skin therapy tool ideal for managing the signs of skin aging. While Microcurrent’s potential range of other applications, including wound healing, muscle rehabilitation, macular degeneration and lymphoma continue to assist medical practitioners with amazing results, we must stay focused on how these studies and this technology can benefit and support us as skin therapists.

Vibraderm is a skincare solution, marketed as an easy alternative to microdermabrasion. A Vibraderm treatment can quickly and painlessly improve the appearance of your skin and is most successful for patients battling the earlier stages of aging, or young patients with skin damage due to acne. Vibradermabrasion can help treat mild acne scars, age spots, fine line and wrinkles, dull skin, and large or clogged pores. Many clinics use Vibraderm in conjunction with or as a preparation for chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing.

Vibroderm

Vibraderm is not a laser, light source, or ultra sound technique. Unlike traditional microdermabrasion, Vibraderm does not sandblast aluminum oxide crystals over the skin. Instead, a Vibraderm machine consists of paddles covered in abrasive particles. During the treatment, the Vibraderm paddles vibrate over the skin at extremely high speeds, exfoliating the top layer of skin and stimulating collagen growth. Unlike other skin rejuvenation treatments, Vibraderm is safe enough for use on your entire body. It is arguably the fastest, most comfortable alternative to microdermabrasion available. Many patients prefer Vibraderm simply for its lack of post-treatment redness.


Key Benefits of Vibraderm
Vibraderm is a convient alternative to a facelift and other surgical procedures that help to enhance the skin tone and texture. The treatments can be performed in under 1 hour and promise ongoing results for days and weeks after treatment. Vibraderm is mild enough to apply to the face and skin on a regular basis, and does not require anesthesia.

Vibraderm can be used to improve the skin by :
• Reducing mild acne scars
• Eliminating age spots
• Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
• Getting rid of clogged pores
• Smoothing out the skin tone
• Reducing patches of sun damage
• Creating an even skin tone
• Eliminating the appearance of scars and injured skin tissue
• Can be used on several areas of the body, not just the face
• Can be combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing


Drawbacks of Vibraderm
Vibraderm offers several benefits for the skin, and may help many people suffering from acne, breakouts and uneven skin tone finally take control imbalances, improving the texture and tone of their skin overall. Still, the treatment does present some drawbacks such as :
• Mild redness immediately after treatment
• Series of treatments required to achieve dramatic results
