There's a reason microdermabrasion treatments originated in the dermatologist's office. The jagged aluminum crystals it requires can cause microscopic tears in tender skin, if improperly applied. ARTISTRY skin care believes in powerful but gentle beauty. That's why the ARTISTRY Microdermabrasion System was developed. This at-home alternative provides professional-grade results and glowing skin. The Microdermabrasion System consists of ARTISTRY Polishing Scrub, MicroExfoliation Cloth, and Skin Refinishing Lotion.

There's a reason microdermabrasion originated in the dermatologist's office. The jagged aluminum crystals can cause microscopic tears in tender skin. Using the ARTISTRY MicroExfoliation Cloth removes dirt, excess makeup, and dead skin for gentle professional-grade results without the risk.
Since microdermabrasion procedures are typically performed by a dermatologist, what makes the Microdermabrasion System different, allowing us to do it ourselves in our own home?
There is a reason microdermabrasion treatments originated in the dermatologist’s office. The jagged aluminum crystals it requires can cause microscopic tears in tender skin, if improperly performed. That’s why the ARTISTRY Microdermabrasion System was developed. Ultrafine fibers of the ARTISTRY MicroExfoliation Cloth are the key to this special exfoliation mechanism. This unique formation of the fabric results in a powerful and highly effective tool in removing the dead skin cells, layer by layer. Teamed with the spherical beads of the ARTISTRY Polishing Scrub and the acceleration of the skin’s natural exfoliation through ARTISTRY Skin Refinishing Lotion, the treatment provides a gentle yet effective at-home alternative to microdermabrasion.
I see the Microdermabrasion System includes the ARTISTRY MicroExfoliation Cloth, Polishing Scrub, and Skin Refinishing Lotion. Can I use AHA Serum Plus instead of the Skin Refinishing Lotion?
Yes, however the recommended product is Skin Refinishing Lotion since freshly exfoliated skin may experience some irritation to the alpha hydroxy acids in the Alpha Hydroxy Serum Plus.
The recommendation for Microdermabrasion System is 2-3 times per week. Can you still use the Pore Cleansing Masque during this time?
Yes. You can use the Pore Cleansing Masque between Microdermabrasion System treatments, but it is not recommended to use the mask on the same day as the microdermabrasion treatment.
The cloth feels soft. Why can’t it be used with chemical exfoliants?
It is recommended that you use the ARTISTRY Polishing Scrub with the MicroExfoliation cloth to optimize the exfoliation effect. Rinse the cloth thoroughly and pat the skin dry. The addition of Skin Refinishing Lotion will provide the final step in the microdermabrasion process.
Why do I have to allow some time after exfoliating with the MicroExfoliation Cloth before applying products containing vitamin A derivatives or retinols? How long should I wait?
Skin that is freshly exfoliated may be sensitive to products containing vitamin A derivatives or retinols. It is recommended that you allow skin to recover for several hours or wait until the following day to incorporate any products containing vitamin A derivatives or retinols back into your skin care regimen.
Which ARTISTRY products contain vitamin A derivatives or retinols?
The following ARTISTRY products contain vitamin A derivatives or retinols:

What is the order of application when using the Microdermabrasion System along with other skin care products? When do I use this system in my skin care routine?

- Apply ARTISTRY Polishing Scrub to face without water.
- Wet the ARTISTRY MicroExfoliation Cloth and gently exfoliate your face using circular motions.
- Rinse with warm water. Pat skin dry.
- Follow with ARTISTRY Skin Refinishing Lotion, your favorite ARTISTRY treatment products, and moisturizer.
No. Properly cleansing and exfoliation will not increase the oil production on your skin.Should I cleanse and tone my face prior to using the MicroExfoliation Cloth?
Yes. Be sure to use the ARTISTRY Polishing Scrub and MicroExfoliation Cloth on a clean and dry face. This will help the exfoliation process while keeping excess dirt and makeup from getting on the cloth.Do I need to dry my skin after using toner?
Yes. If any excess moisture remains on your face after using a toner, pat dry with a towel before using the MicroExfoliation Cloth.I noticed some flakiness on my face after using the Microdermabrasion System, what should I do?
The ARTISTRY Microdermabrasion System works to remove the buildup of dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. If not done regularly, some skin flakiness may occur after exfoliation has taken place. To avoid this, use the ARTISTRY Microdermabrasion System 2–3 times per week. This will help to consistently keep your skin exfoliated.Why should I use the Polishing Scrub without water when using the MicroExfoliation Cloth but with water if using the scrub alone?
Using the Polishing Scrub and MicroExfoliation Cloth without water will allow for better exfoliation and better removal of dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.
