Beauty Beat. Scrub Yourself Youthful With All-Natural Microdermx™

July 21, 2008 • Beauty


Microdermx™ is the first all-natural, medical grade micordermabrasion kit for in-home use. Unique from the majority of home microdermabrasion kits, Microdermx™ uses medical grade corundum crystals with concentrated amounts of natural botanicals, nutrients and active enzymes instead of using second grade exfoliants such as pumice, magnesium oxide, sodium bicarbonate, pumice, silica, pearl and “un-fused” aluminum oxide — found in other store bought formulas.

The results from Microdermx™ are a more even skin tone, diminished pores, faded wrinkles and fine lines, banished acne scars and brown spots (sun damage) all without the use of synthetic or chemical ingredients.



"The main key to “genuine” microdermabrasion is in the quality and hardness of the crystal. The purity, processing, quality and grade of the crystals themselves are very important to the microdermabrasion formula. If the crystal used is not hard enough to perform the process, you are getting an exfoliation at best. Corundum crystal (or fused aluminum oxide), which we use in Microdermx™, is second only to the diamond on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.” says Dana McCants, President of Nikkel Holistic Skincare, makers of Microdermx™ .

There are two steps to the Microdermx™ process:

Step One performs the microdermabrasion process and removes older, tired skin cells revealing newer more supple ones. Step Two nourishes the skin with hydrating ‘skin food’ to help repair and remedy past effects and prevent future damage.

“After only one use, women will notice much softer, smoother and radiant skin. However, just like traditional microdermabrasion, results for the larger "issues" (scars, wrinkles and hyper pigmentation) will come with multiple treatments. For example, some have seen their lines and scars improve 50% after a week, and others have seen improvement 3 weeks to several months. It, of course, depends on the depth of the issues,” says McCants.

Immediately my skin looked better. Even after one use. After a couple of uses I noticed a huge difference in my skin tone. Many of my sun spots have faded as well as some of my fine lines. Let’s put it this way….for the first time in years I have been leaving the house without foundation and feeling confident! For me, that’s huge. Just make sure to wear sun screen and stay out of the sun after you have finished a treatment!
