ExcellaDerm Microdermabrasion Systems™ are based on the method of polishing and removing the uppermost layer of the skin called the Stratum Corneum. The result is a topical exfoliation as well as an indirect stimulation to the basal layer of the skin. When we stimulate the basal layer of the skin, we increase cell proliferation (turnover), stimulate nervous tissue, resulting in vasodilatation for increased blood flow, and trigger the stimulation of oil and water production. It can also have a direct influence on increased fibroblast, collagen and elastin production. The results: a healthier, more vibrant, firmer, hydrated and improved texture and appearance to the skin.

Small crystals of Aluminum Oxide (the only FDA approved substrate) are delivered to the skin. The abrasive characteristics of this particulate remove various amounts of dead tissue with the degree of ablation (dead tissue removed) depending on three variables:

  • The level of power used during the session.
  • The amount of time on the tissue. Moving the crystals slowly across the skin results in more ablation; faster across the skin, less ablation.
  • The number of passes on the skin. The more times you pass over a particular area, the more ablation you get.

Once the crystals are rotated on the skin, they are vacuumed away by a specially-designed handpiece and deposited into the waste canister for later disposal. The vacuum device on our systems also has additional benefits. As it glides over the surface of the skin, the vacuum acts as a stimulant to increase blood flow to nourish the skin, as well as to accelerate collagen and elastin production. The result is a firmer, more toned appearance.

Under normal circumstances, the uppermost skin layer exfoliates naturally between 10-12 days. New cells in the basal cell layer take 28-30 days to rise to the surface and ultimately slough away. By removing dry, dead skin cells with microdermabrasion, new living cells that are deeper in the tissue are revealed, showing healthy skin. Microdermabrasion accelerates the migration of the new cells to the surface.

Microdermabrasion is best when performed as a series of 6, 8, 10 or 12 procedures at one week intervals. More severe problem skin may require additional procedures to obtain the desired results. After a series of procedures, we recommend that once every 4 weeks a maintenance or “refresher” procedure is received.

Skin sensitivity to our microdermabrasion systems is minimal and post-procedure discomfort is unlikely. We recommend use of the appropriate skin care products to assist the repair process and to ensure optimum results. To protect the skin following a procedure, we recommend our non-chemical sunblock.
