Diamonds (and Steel) Are a Skin's Best Friend: Aesthetic VideoSource Presents "Microdermabrasion: Crystal-Free Techniques"

July 19, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
Turn back the effects of time for healthy, younger-looking skin.

Microdermabrasion exfoliates the lackluster outermost layer of the epidermis for a fresh layer. The result is softened fine lines and wrinkles, smoothed skin, lessened scars, cleared pores, reduced hyperpigmentation, and stimulated collagen production. Your clients will love their improved skin smoothness, texture, and luminescence.

Microdermabrasion technology has been around since the 80's, using tiny aluminum oxide crystals (corundum) to buff away the skin. Diamond-tip and steel-tip microdermabrasion technology are now an option, achieving the same results with less discomfort and without the crystal residue. They come with different sized tips with varying grades of roughness that attach to a hand-held wand. A vacuum still removes the dead skin.

In Aesthetic VideoSource's newly released Microdermabrasion: Crystal-Free Techniques; Diamond Tip and Stainless Steel Tip, Tina Marie Zillmann walks you through complete protocols from client consultation to step-by-step instructions, with both types of microdermabrasion machines, for treatments on the face, ears, decollete, and shoulders. In addition to the microdermabrasion treatments, she demonstrates how to provide a skin analysis (visual scan and with a scope), cleansing with salicylic and melanin-suppressant cleansers, toning, 20% salicylic peel, 30% glycolic peel, retinol peel, post-peel balm, extractions (with cotton and 26.5 gauge needle), scalp and decollete massage, eyebrow wax with hard wax, a soothing clay mask, and sun block application. All the steps lead to better,rejuvenated skin.

Tina is a master instructor. She explains every single step in detail. Throughout, she also provides cautionary tips and hints for these treatments, as well as benefits and contraindications. She discusses the features, settings, types and sizes of tips, filters, and how to operate and sanitize the crystal-free microdermabrasion units. She also demonstrates how to use an ozone facial tool to disinfect skin, an ultrasonic cold hammer to reduce inflammation, and a steam autoclave for disinfecting and sanitizing equipment. She finishes with a post-treatment client consultation discussing home care regimen.

Sample client consultation forms are included.

"Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is taking off in popularity," says Zillmann. "It may become the main type of microdermabrasion we see in the near future."
