Hmm which microderm to choose?

There are three types of microderms that are most commonly used: Crystal, Diamond, and Hydro. They each have their strengths and weaknesses, and are designed to suit different skin types.

Crystal
Crystal microderm is the most common type of microderm. This type has been utilized for more than 20 years. It uses aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate crystals to remove the outer layer of skin, and suction to remove the debris and dead skin. This option is the most effective at exfoliation. The crystals move around perfectly on your skin, and can maneuver around skin irregularities. Best for skin that requires intense exfoliation, but not overly sensitive to irritation.
Diamond tip
The next most common form is Diamond tip. It utilizes a hard diamond point to ablate dead skin. While not the most effective at removing dead skin and debris, it is perfect for those who have sensitive skin. 
Hydro
A hydro-microderm is the best option for those who want need some hydration as well as exfoliation. This is the perfect microderm for winter when skin is dry and prone to irritation. While the least powerful of the three, it allows for simultaneous treatment of dry and dead skin.
