Customer Reviews:
“The video was clear and professional; the use of skin analysis machine and showing the skin was great. The content was clear and well delivered. The standards were high. I really liked the introduction of complimentary therapies to the Crystal free Microdermabrasion like peels, Ozone, hammer, skin analysis and masks/Vitamin A. I liked the use of two different machines and benefits and features for both. Overall I think it shows great content for someone wanting to introduce Microdermabrasion to the treatment protocol. Enough information to perform the treatment proficiently.” Millissa R.
