Crystal-free diamond tip and stainless steel tip microdermabrasion are an ideal offering for older clients and those with drier skin. With microdermabrasion, you can decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars. Your clients will love their improved skin smoothness, texture, and luminescence. These crystal-free alternatives avoid messy crystals that risk getting grit in clients’ eyes, while providing the results that clients are seeking. Tina Marie Zillmann walks you through complete protocols from client consultation to the step-by-step instructions, with both types of microdermabrasion machines, for treatments on the face, ears, décolleté, and shoulders. She demonstrates a skin analysis with a scope, cleansing with salicylic and melanin-suppressant cleansers, toning with salicylic toner, salicylic peel, post- peel balm, glycolic peel, retinol peel, extractions with cotton and needle, scalp and décolleté massage, eyebrow wax with hard wax, soothing clay mask, and sun block with zinc and titanium oxide. Throughout, she provides cautionary tips and hints for these exfoliating treatments, sun-damage treatments, as well as benefits and contraindications. She also discusses the features, settings, types and sizes of tips, filters, and how to operate and sanitize the crystal-free microdermabrasion units. She also demonstrates how to use an ozone facial tool to disinfect skin, an ultrasonic cold hammer to reduce inflammation, and a steam autoclave for disinfecting and sanitizing your equipment. She finishes with a post-treatment client consultation discussing a home care regimen. Sample client consultation forms are included.
