Microdermabrasion & LED Therapy Diploma

Microdermabrasion & LED Therapy Diploma


Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a slightly abrasive instrument to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells at the surface.

If you take the word apart, micro means small; derm is short for dermis and means skin; and abrasion means the process of scraping away. It literally means the process in which you use instruments to create microscopic abrasions in the skin to remove the thicker top layer of the skin.

LED Light Therapy  or light emitting diode therapy, is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light. NASA originally developed it for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions and later found it to have promise for wound treatment. LED light therapy is now used to support treatment of various skin concerns.
