MicroDermAbrasion restores a youthful appearance by removing aged surface skin.
What Makes Red Tea so Special?
Dr. Goldfaden found that regular exfoliation in combination with red tea extract greatly limits the damaging effects of free radicals, which are largely responsible for the aging of the skin. In his many clinical studies, Dr. Goldfaden observed that regular use of Self MicroDermAbrasion™ lessened the appearance of many types of skin imperfections—such as fine lines, acne scars, dark spots, freckles, sun damage, and age spots—resulting in healthier skin.
The Importance of Proper Particle Size
Advantages Over In-officeMachine Treatment
In-office machine microdermabrasion treatments can be expensive and inconvenient, costing anywhere from $150 to $500 per visit and usually requiring a total of 6-9 visits at monthly intervals. Results are inconsistent, tend to fade rapidly, and are not regained until additional in-office machine treatments are undertaken. Moreover, most of those who perform the machine treatments are not physicians, which can lead to improper use of the machines. Self MicroDermAbrasion™ exfoliate eliminates most of these concerns. Dr. Goldfaden has shown that Self MicroDermAbrasion™ treatments achieve the same result as machine microdermabrasion. Unlike chemical peels and laser surgery, they are relatively safe for people of all skin types.
Today, microdermabrasion is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic skin procedures in the US, and until recently was available only through the use of in-office machines. With the creation of Self MicroDermAbrasion™ exfoliate, people can get the same, if not superior, results offered by in-office microdermabrasion treatments.
Consumers Demand Science in Skin Care Products
Consumers seeking effective solutions to battle skin aging are fed up with commercial companies hyping products that consist mostly of oil and water emulsions, as opposed to scientific formulations that provide potent nutrients and natural moisturizers. While commercial cosmetics companies often are more concerned with designing fancy packaging and marketing gimmicks, dermatologists spend years developing and meticulously testing their novel ideas on patients, who eagerly become active test subjects.
Major cosmetics companies are scrambling to react to consumer demand by adding dermatologists to their payrolls. As is so often the case with institutional bureaucracies (such as drug companies), significant innovation seldom occurs. As history has so often demonstrated, it is the individual with an insatiable curiosity to discover something truly novel who produces a true scientific breakthrough.
Dr. Goldfaden’s Self Micro-DermAbrasion™ exfoliate is the result of a pioneering physician’s clinical experience observing the beneficial effects of machine-applied microdermabrasion. His painstaking experiments with numerous particle sizes and densities finally led to the Self MicroDermAbrasion™ exfoliate that people can safely use at home without incurring the added expense and inconvenience of going to dermatologists.
For the first time, this exclusive magnesium-based exfoliate is available for people to maintain fresh, youthful-looking skin, free from some of the unsightly ravages of environmental toxins and normal aging.
