Microdermabrasion techniques have been used for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians even used special types of sand paper to resurface the skin. As a result of this long lineage of knowledge, skin abrasion systems have vastly improved over the years. The first microdermabrasion machine was developed in 1985, and has since become one of the most popular forms of skin care treatments.
The goal of microdermabrasion is to mechanically slough away the outermost layer of skin. In turn, skin cells are rejuvenated to reveal a brighter, healthier complexion. The newest form of microdermabrasion is the Wet/Dry Microdermabrasion system: Bio-Brasion.
Bio-Brasion is one of the most effective forms of skin exfoliation systems on the market. The Bio-Brasion machine is equipped with five diamond tips. Each tip varies in coarseness. This allows for custom exfoliation according to skin type. Combined with a chemical exfoliant, a diamond tip is passed across the face three times. A gentle suction during this process helps to remove impurities and increase blood flow to the epidermis, encouraging skin cell turnover and collagen production. The Bio-Brasion system is designed for all skin types, including sensitive. Hyper pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and congested skin will benefit beautifully from the Bio-Brasion Treatment. Check out this article showcasing Bio-Brasion!
Bio-Brasion is used in our Bio-Brasion w/ Aquafuse Facial, as well as in our Customized Facial upon request. When looking to target specific skin concerns it is best to receive 4 consecutive Bio-Brasion Treatments. It is then recommended to receive Bio-Brasion Treatments on a monthly basis.
