Question 1 of 5
Microdermabrasion uses tiny, rough grains to buff away what?Correct
That’s right, buffing away the outer-most layer of the skin helps to open trapped pores and rejuvenate the skin’s surface.Incorrect
Nice try because, in fact, microdermabrasion is used very effectively in the treatment of acne and a whole host of other marks, blemishes and diseases of the skin. However, as much as it might be desired acne goes deeper and consequently there is no way to buff away acne.
Question 2 of 5
Microdermabrasion actually increases the effectiveness of medicinal skin creams & lotionsCorrect
You’re right, that’s absolutely true. Dermatologists often use microdermabrasion to improve the results gained from using anti-aging products and skin bleaching products. Regular microdermabrasion allows these products to penetrate the skin more easily.Incorrect
No, it’s true. The natural non invasive procedure helps the new fresh layer of skin better absorb high quality anti-aging creams and lotions. Microdermabrasion treatments, in fact, enhance a whole host of other skin-related treatments and products.
Question 3 of 5
Microdermabrasion can be performed in conjunction with other treatments like chemical peels, etc.Correct
True but must be qualified in that only if it is performed with one an MX or DX machine and done prior to the peel/laser/IPL/skin rejuvenation. The all-natural properties of our proprietary, medical-grade sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) crystals will not aggravate or irritate even the most sensitive skin. This two-tiered treatment option will greatly enhance the efficacy of these procedures and produce a better result.Incorrect
False This would be the correct answer if you’re using anything other than an MX or DX machine from Advanced Microderm. The reason is the all-natural properties of our proprietary, medical-grade sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) crystals which will not aggravate or irritate even the most sensitive skin.
Question 4 of 5
The best at-home treatments can match the effectiveness of more expensive visits to the dermatologist or medical hybrid spa?Correct
You’re right, even if you stick with well-recognized top brands, those at-home treatments and exfoliating tools and applicators, even though some can get pretty pricey, really can’t match the treatments you receive at a doctor’s office or spa with medically trained personnel. For one thing, home applicators, regardless of how much you spend, can’t match features like diamond-tipped wands that come on professional medical-grade equipment.Incorrect
Sorry, not really. The microdermabrasion that a dermatologist performs really does differ from the ones that you can do at home and is definitely an area where “similar” parts company with “same as”. Even the best, most trusted in-home brands can’t match the results that come with features like diamond tips that are present on professional medical-grade equipment. That’s because even the most trusted “professional grade” equipment designed for the home can, often times, in the wrong hands or applied too frequently, become the most dangerous and damaging – producing broken capillaries instead of fresher skin. It’s also why, in many cases, microdermabrasion treatments are better left to your dermatologist or other trained professionals who are more familiar with your individual sensitivities as well as up on the latest, safest and most effective treatments for the your skin.
Question 5 of 5
Microdermabrasion helps to thicken what which results in a fresher, younger looking complexion?Correct
Good for you, this was a tough one! Abundant when we’re younger, our collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin. Did you know that, according to Wikipedia, collagen is the main component of connective tissue, the most abundant protein in mammals (making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content) and is present in tendons and ligaments as well as the skin.Incorrect
Stumped you on this one. Well, don’t get down over it – it’s probably the toughest question in the bunch. Abundant when we’re younger, our collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin. In addition to helping produce younger looking skin, Collagen, according to Wikipedia, is the main component of connective tissue, the most abundant protein in mammals making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content and is present in tendons and ligaments as well as the skin.
