Microdermabrasion Advanced Training for Estheticians
Certificate 15-Hour Course
Microdermabrasion exfoliates dead skin, diminishes sun damage, pigmentation, open and closed comedones, fine lines and wrinkles, and coarse textured skin.
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment designed to remove the upper layers of damaged and dying skin cells, which tend to give your skin an overall dull appearance and betray signs of sun damage. After the top layer of skin cells has been removed, the skin should look more radiant and should feel refreshed. This treatment can be used to target specific problems like dark spots on face, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation induced by pregnancy.
Microdermabrasion is a term used to describe a number of different procedures which exfoliate the skin. During this procedure, the top layer of the epidermis is removed. Your dead skin cells are subsequently vacuumed up, revealing healthy skin. The whole procedure is quick and painless, generally taking 30-45 minutes, depending on the condition of your skin.
This procedure has two main types of microdermabrasion; crystal-based and non-crystal.
