How Has Microdermabrasion Technology Changed Since the 1980s?

One of the most requested technology-based treatments has changed drastically overtime

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available on the market today. But the treatments of today have come a long way from how microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion has been around, in some form or another, for centuries. However, over the years the treatments and process has changed to incorporate advancing technology and equipment. With the slew of benefits, it’s no wonder that microdermabrasion has been around and sought-after for so long. But how has the procedure improved and changed in just the past few decades?

During the 1980s, microdermabrasion started to become more mainstream. At that time, the treatment was known as crystal microdermabrasion. This type of microdermabrasion used aluminum oxide crystals in combination with the machine which worked as a type of “sandblaster.” However today, this procedure is no longer used. Instead of aluminum, sodium bicarbonate crystals were then used in this specific type of microdermabrasion though the procedure is softer and less effective than some of today’s other methods.

Today’s microdermabrasion machines can treat a wider range of skin types because of their advanced technology. Modern microdermabrasion uses a combination of wet/dry crystal-free exfoliation and today’s machines offer an adjustable level of abrasion to accommodate more needs. This are known as hydrodermabrasion machines. The ability to specify the machine’s levels can help salon owners address more targeted troubles like pigmentation issues and acne management. We offer machines that employ both crystal microdermabrasion and wet/dry crystal-free microdermabrasion to cover every client’s needs.

Both types of microdermabrasion treatment effectively address fine lines and wrinkles, renew dull complexions, clear pores, and more. By investing in a microdermabrasion machine, you’ll open your service menu to an in-demand market with scores of new clients.
