Microdermabrasion side effects

Microdermabrasion crystals

The crystals used in microdermabrasion treatments vary, and type of crystal used will give the skin a different result or benefit.

Usually aluminium oxide crystals are used and this type gives a more aggressive skin exfoliation

Head Trainer at CACI, Claire Burrell says: "Aluminium oxide crystals are irregular in shape and provide an aggressive skin exfoliation whereas quartz silica crystals are perfectly round microspheres that are less harsh on the skin and provide a gentle exfoliation."
