What exactly are corundum crystals used in microdermabrasion?

Corundum crystals are a key component in the microdermabrasion process, renowned for their effectiveness in skin exfoliation. These crystals are derived from corundum, a naturally occurring mineral that is second only to diamond in terms of hardness. This remarkable hardness makes corundum crystals incredibly effective for gently yet efficiently exfoliating the skin.

A Closer Look at Corundum: This mineral is an aluminum oxide and is famously known for being the source of precious gemstones like rubies and sapphires, as well as the abrasive material emery. What makes corundum crystals ideal for skincare, particularly in microdermabrasion, is their inert nature. Being chemically inactive, these crystals do not react with the skin, making them safe and suitable for a wide range of skin types.

Safety and Transparency: At Pia Day Spa, we understand the importance of using safe, high-quality materials in our treatments. Each manufacturer of corundum crystals provides a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) analysis, which is available for consumer review. This ensures transparency and reassurance about the safety and quality of the materials used in our microdermabrasion treatments.

The Role in Microdermabrasion: When used in microdermabrasion, these fine corundum crystals are applied to the skin's surface. Their hardness allows them to effectively remove dead skin cells, promoting the regeneration of new, healthier skin layers. This process not only revitalizes the skin's appearance but also stimulates collagen production, contributing to a more youthful and radiant complexion.

At Pia Day Spa, we are dedicated to providing our clients with treatments that are both effective and safe. Our use of corundum crystals in microdermabrasion is a testament to our commitment to quality and excellence in skincare.
