Save yourself a trip to the dermatologist’s office with Relumin's, our at-home microdermabrasion system designed to exfoliate and suction away impurities that can clog pores, leading to inflammation, blackheads and acne breakouts.
Microdermabrasion (MDA) is a minimally invasive epidermal resurfacing procedure used to treat uneven skin tone/texture, photoaging, striae, melasma, and scars, including acne scars. It is widely available and one of the most common nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. MDA was first introduced in 1985 by Marini and Lo Brutto as a less aggressive alternative to chemical peels and dermabrasion. The MDA procedure can be performed in the outpatient setting (medical office, medical spa) by a trained clinician, aesthetician, medical assistant, or nurse without the use of anesthesia.
Microdermabrasion for acne:
The purpose of this research project is to study the effect of micordermabrasion to try to improve the appearance of facial acne. The microdermabrasion machine is a hand-held device that directs pressurized aluminum oxide crystals at its target accompanied by a suction device. It is not yet clear how much improvement can be seen with these treatments or exactly how the skin's response causes these improvements. In this study, we are interested in learning how well microdermabrasion works to improve the symptoms of acne.

Microdermabrasion: a clinical, histometric, and histopathologic study:
Microdermabrasion is a nonchemical superficial resurfacing procedure that removes the stratum corneum. Because it is a somewhat subtle procedure, it may be difficult to demonstrate its cosmetic benefit.
