Five Innovative Ways to Use Microdermabrasion
Posted: April 2, 2013
DermaMed Solutions is pleased to announce their new aesthetics educational series Multitasking Moneymaker: Five Innovative Ways to Use Microdermabrasion. Launching this spring, the seminar series will feature step-by-step protocols and the scientific rationale behind the treatments. “There’s no question that microdermabrasion is a great way to treat acne, improve overall skin texture and stimulate skin cell regeneration,” says Ginger Hodulik, MS, CNS, VP of Research and Development for DermaMed Solutions. “In addition to facial treatments, there are many other ideal uses for this versatile workhorse all over the body.”
DermaMed’s educational seminar will feature five “alternative” uses of microdermabrasion that will alleviate common conditions and put money in the bank:
- Battling “backne.” Acne on the back, or “backne” is a common and embarrassing condition. “Microdermabrasion is ideal for acne on the back,” says Luba Dziubas, owner of Serenity Spa & Salon in Robbinsville, NJ.
- Smoothing stretch marks. “I’ve had amazing results reducing the appearance of post-pregnancy stretch marks with microdermabrasion,” says Dziubas. Although microdermabrasion can’t completely eliminate stretch marks, it can induce collagen production and soften and smooth the skin. “When combined with the right nutrients to support skin renewal, the skin has the necessary building blocks for neo-collagen synthesis and smoother looking skin,” says Hodulik.
- Helping hands. Hands are the first give-away to your real age, yet most of us treat our faces and neglect our hands. Hydration, nutrition and UV protection strategies, both internal and external, can be incorporated in a holistic protocol for youthful looking hands.
- Softening scars. There’s no reason to live with anterieor cruciate ligament (ACL) or C-section scars. Microdermabrasion helps break down the build-up of scar tissue and smooth it out. Dziubas had “phenomenal” results using microdermabrasion to soften scars. “You can literally buff out the scars out after a few treatments so the skin is flawless.” The American Academy of Dermatology reports that patients seem to like microdermabrasion for treating scars, because there are no side effects, zero recovery time and the treatments are painless.
- Combatting calluses. Feet that suffer from chronic corns and calluses (hyperkeratosis) range from a cosmetic nuisance to a painful medical problem. “Podiatry spas will be a growing trend as standard pedicures do not stand up to the job,” says Hodulik. “Microdermabrasion provides even and safe exfoliation of thick skin.”
