Choosing a Microdermabrasion Machine

Choosing the right microdermabrasion device for your clinic may appear simple, and compared to devices such as laser hair removal machines and tattoo removal devices, it is. But it is the small things that will make a big difference, and you won’t discover the importance of those small things until you begin treating clients.

Here are a couple of things to check to make sure you are getting the right microdermabrasion machine for your business.


Check the power of your new device. Highly powered devices offer, by definition, a wider range of treatment options. While sensitive skin will quickly turn red and as a result requires only the lightest of treatments, tougher skin – in order to effectively rejuvenate the epidermal layers– needs substantial power. It’s embarrassing to receive feedback from a client that the machine in the clinic wasn’t as powerful as the one they have at home.


With great power comes great responsibility! What is true for Spider-Man is equally true for beauty and aesthetic clinics.

A suitably powerful machine that doesn’t allow for specificity in controlling that power, has the potential to irritate customers, literally.

Imagine, a client says the treatment is hurting them and asks for the power to be reduced. You reduce it down to the next setting, but then the client says it’s too low and asks for something in the middle. But there is no middle setting, you click from underpowered to overpowered with no other options.

Take the time to test your settings to make sure there is enough flexibility to allow for every client.

Tips and Heads

multiple tips and heads allow you to change based on the type of skin and location on the face. It’s very difficult to cover every piece of skin with the same head, and almost impossible to effectively cover the nose. Changing tips and heads should be a standard part of every treatment.

Microdermabrasion is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment that is, relatively speaking, straightforward. Just make sure you know what you’re looking for when you consider a new device.
