Microdermabrasion Crystals

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique in which a mechanical medium is used to exfoliate the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis for the purpose of smoothing the skin and/or removing small scars, moles, tattoos, or fine wrinkles. It is a non-invasive procedure which can be performed in the home or by a trained skin care professional. Various methods and equipment are used to perform microdermabrasion.

A key component of this process is the media used for exfoliation. Microdermabrasion crystals are among the most common of these media, which can be made from a wide variety of materials. Aluminum oxide, sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride, and natural or (for economic considerations) synthetic diamond are commonly crystallized for microdermabrasion.
