It has been around since the 1980’s. There are different types of microdermabrasion. Crystal microdermabrasion uses crystals that are blasted out of a hand held device to polish away dead skin cells. The crystals will attack the dead skin cells, and grab hold of them, then be vacuumed off the skin. It can be somewhat uncomfortable, but will never be painful. The most sensitive areas are usually around the mouth and the nose. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion will use a hand held tool without the use of any crystals. The diamond-tip will exfoliate the skin, capturing the dead skin cells and vacuuming them off the skin.
