Macrodermabrasion uses non-toxic water soluble salt crystals, which penetrate the skin further than simple Microdermabrasion. The use of positive pressure eliminates bruising associated with traditional vacuum based Microdermabrasion systems. A stream of fine, chemically inert crystals and mild suction are applied to the skin using a hand piece that exfoliates the outer layers of skin. Following the treatment, your skin may appear somewhat pink. Many patients say their face feels as if their skin has been deeply cleansed. Macrodermabrasion effectively treats blackheads and whiteheads, superficial pigmentation, and give the skin a healthy-looking glow. It may be used in conjunction with chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.
