Keeping Your Mocha Beautiful: Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation process that uses crystals to remove dead, damaged skin cells in an effort to reveal new rejuvenated skin. Dermatologist use different types of crystals (aluminum oxide, sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride, magnesium oxide to name a few) so if you have sensitive skin you definitely want to do your research further to see which crystal would best suit your skin. For those concerned about potential health hazards with crystals, another microdermabrasion option is the diamond process (same price range) which uses a microdermabrasion tip covered with tiny diamonds that loosens the dead skin cells and removes them into a cotton filter where you can view the removed cells.

The microdermabrasion process reduces pores, diminishes acne scars, fades discoloration, and makes your skin look glowingly fresh & vibrant. Microdermabrasion can be used on other body parts and is also great for fading stretch marks. The cost for microdermabrasion ranges from $100-$200 dollars. For those on a budget microdermabrasion home kits are readily available online ( or at your local beauty supply. The home-kits are definitely not as potent as visiting a dermatologist or local spa, but a good exfoliation is beneficial to your skin on any level.
Some consumer favorites include:
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Rejuvenator $35.00
DermaNew Microdermabrasion Acne & Oily Clarifying System $70.00

Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion System $25.99

Later, Mochas!!!
