What does the word "abrasion" have to do with smooth skin?
Think of it like this - when you have a rough patch on a piece of wood, the best way to smooth it out is to sand it down. The finer the sandpaper, the smoother the surface becomes.
According to Discovery Fit & Health, "All of the action in microdermabrasion takes place at the level of the stratum corneum. Since it only really targets the epidermis (and not the dermis), it is more accurate to call it micro-epi-dermabrasion." In other words, the microdermabrasion is only dealing with the top layer of the skin as seen below.
At RSVP MedSpa we use the cutting-edge HydraFacial system with “wetderm” microdermabrasion. The exceptional effectiveness of HydraFacial is due to its use of specially formulated serums in combination with a vacuum-based skin abrasion tip. This unique form of microdermabrasion uses a crystal free tip along with serums to improve the texture, pore size, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles; leaving your face soft, smooth, and supple. It removes dead skin cell and impurities while bathing the healthy underlying skin with deep cleansing, extracting, exfoliation and antioxidant serums.
The proprietary serums are clinically formulated to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, congested pores, hyper-pigmentation and acne-prone skin. The disposable tips have a multifaceted spiral construction that increases the time the serums are in contact with the skin. The result is a cool, comfortable process that leaves the skin radiantly clean, refined, moist and polished. HydraFacial is appropriate for most skin types including thin or aging skin, ethnic skin and oily skin.
