Medical microdermabrasion equipment is a sizable investment, but one that pays for itself very quickly. Microdermabrasion is growing quickly in popularity, since it offers significant results with few if any aftereffects. Adding medical microdermabrasion equipment to your office will bring in new clients, and almost all of them will want repeated visits.

Microdermabrasion works by channeling tiny particles of mineral to bombard the skin at high speeds. The crystals break up dead skin cells and gently "sand" the top layer of the epidermis. The dead cells, crystals and debris are then suctioned away, leaving a fresh layer of skin.

Medical microdermabrasion equipment typically uses either aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate as the polishing substance. Sodium bicarbonate has the advantage of being lighter, thus necessitating less suction. It also poses fewer environmental hazards than aluminum oxide.

Available Models of Medical Microdermabrasion Equipment

Microdermabrasion devices start at around $3,000 and go up into five figures. The primary difference among them is the power of the driving engine. The higher the power, the more quickly the procedure can be accomplished. A higher-powered machine also runs more quietly, making the procedure a better experience for the client. Various models include self-contained versus tabletop models, those which can be operated by a foot pedal, and those which add vibratory stimulation to the crystal operation. Also consider the weight and support afforded to the handpiece, for the comfort of the operator. Finally, check the technical support and training. Many sites offer certification training as part of the purchase price.
