Crystal-Free Microdermabrasion Training Online with Tina Marie Zillmann, Past President of the Aesthetic International Association

Medical Aestheticians who care for the patients of plastic surgeons and dermatologists are using crystal-free microdermabrasion techniques in combination with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, retinol peels, and melanin suppressing ingredients to turn back the effects of time for younger-looking skin.

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that exfoliates the lackluster outermost layer of the epidermis and exposes and underlying fresh layer of skin. The result is softened fine lines and wrinkles, smoothed skin, reduced hyperpigmentation, lessened scars, cleared pores, and stimulated collagen production. In combination with chemical peels, it improves skin smoothness, texture, and luminescence, and the overall health of the skin.

In order to achieve the optimal results, a pre and post-treatment skincare treatment is essential. Knowledge of chemical peels, melanin suppressing ingredients, skin types, and skin analysis are required in order to perform microdermabrasion procedures as well as the skincare treatments that precede and follow.

Microdermabrasion technology has been used since the 1980’s. The original method utilizes tiny aluminum oxide crystals (corundum) to buff away the top layer of the skin. A pressurized hand held wand sprays the crystals onto the skin to abrade the uppermost layers. A vacuum simultaneously removes the dead skin and crystals from the skin, and the remaining residue is removed during the post microdermabrasion skin cleansing treatment.

The most recent innovation in microdermabraision technology are Diamond-tip and steel-tip microdermabrasion machines. These newer microdermabraision tools achieve the same results with less discomfort and without the aluminum oxide crystal residue. These machines come equipped with different sized tips with varying grades of roughness that attach to a hand-held wand. Pre and post-microdermabrasion skin care procedures are essential for a beneficial outcome.

Tina Marie Zillmann is an expert at using both types of microdermabrasion machines. She is a practicing aesthetician with expertise on innovative aesthetic treatments and post-surgical care for plastic surgery patients.

“Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is taking off in popularity,” says Zillmann. “It may become the main type of microdermabrasion we see in the near future.”

Tina is the featured expert in an online training video and DVD for medical aestheticians and skin care specialists who work with patients of dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
