How Microdermabrasion Works

Microdermabrasion works by utilizing a mechanical medium for exfoliation that helps to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. This process at Wax Spa uses just two components:

  • A Diamond/Crystal Flake Exfoliant for Skin Exfoliation
  • A Small Suction Tube Powered By A Machine

The process is two fold and happens simultaneously. The crystal/diamond exfoliant is shot at the skin at high speed. The exfoliant actually takes the top layer of dead skin cells off the targeted area. Most refer to the feeling as similar to a lick from a cat’s tongue: not pleasant, but not painful either.

Vacuum suction is simultaneously applied to the skin to suck up the crystal/diamond exfoliant as well as the dead skin cells. The entire process takes anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes depending on the area being exfoliated.

Why It Works

Microdermabrasion works so well because it is able to completely remove the top layer of skin. Because of the suction, none of the fine skin particles or exfoliant remains. This helps eliminate the possibility of clogged pores due to the procedure. The treatment is commonly more effective when people commit to a series on a bi-weekly basis, according to each type of skin and skin condition.

After several appointments, quite a few people report seeing significant changes in skin condition and texture. Microdermabrasion at Wax Spa help people gain confidence in the quality and condition of their skin. Whether it’s a body wax or a bit of microdermabrasion, we’re committed to making you look and feel your best.
