Hydradermabrasion v. Microdermabrasion

The global wellness economy has grown drastically throughout the years now, more so, than ever. The beauty and anti-aging sector are at an all time high, with the question remaining for most us, How can us women maintain our youthful glow?” With all the new innovative technology and procedures out there to answer these questions, we here at Susan Ciminelli decided to focus on two popular treatments where we are often asked why one over the other?

Hydradermabrasion and Microdermabrasion can offer great results and there are many benefits to both options, however, there are major differences. Hydradermabrasion is a nonabrasive treatment that’s designed for ALL skin types. A small tube acts as a suction combining the natural elements of oxygen and water to improve the skins texture.


The water and oxygen hydrate the skin increasing antioxidants, decrease large and clogged pores, and builds up collagen. It also helps to remove dead skin cells by exfoliation.

One of our estheticians of over 17 years, Anna, commented on the two types of treatments.


Hydradermabrasion, uses two different approaches, by cleaning the skin deeply, and at the same time hydrates. It is gentle, and it is similar to gently sucking your skin for glowing results. Microdermabrasion is very abrasive; they use a different technique with the machine. It can be compared to sanding your face, leaving it red after the treatment. This technique is not for people with thin and sensitive skin due to irritation.

Microdermabrasion, however, is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the first layer of dry, dead skin cells by using tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer. The grains, or diamond tipped wand, move over the areas on your face, applying steady pressure to remove the dead skin cells. The vacuum action tends to cause blemishes if the skin tension is le
t up or uneven. The lip area is also susceptible to bruising. Treatment that is too deep or intense can cause permanent discoloration to the skin.

Curious? Give hydradermabrasion a try, and experience the benefits it has to offer here at Susan Ciminelli.Our clients truly love their results! If you are an individual with scars, acne, dark spots, puffy eyes and black heads- you may want to consider booking an appointment to give the newest skincare technology a chance.

Your skin never lies.

Harper's Bazaar 3

Your skin never lies.

If you have breakouts, your skin is trying to tell you something. Depending on where you break out on your face and body, you need to cleanse your system from the inside out. Eating a healthy diet does not necessarily mean you have to give up flavor. You can have your cake and eat it too, you can have your wine and occasional cocktail without throwing your body out of balance. There are some simple rules to follow to insure you are getting the nutrients your body needs in order to be healthy. Even before you eat breakfast, you need to prepare your system for food and beverage. Your alimentary canal goes from your mouth to your anus inside.

In ancient cultures, they practice cleansing the alimentary canal each and every day before they eat or drink anything. Being clean inside allows your bodies immune system to flourish. What good is a healthy diet if you don’t have a clean system to receive your food? Digestion, absorption (assimilation) and proper elimination are key to health and wellness.

You earn beautiful skin by bringing your body into balance.

Before you eat in the morning you must practice great oral hygiene. Scraping your tongue, flossing and brushing your teeth along with rinsing your mouth with sea salt water (1 tablespoon of sea salt in glass of warm water) help to cleanse your mouth thoroughly before you eat every morning. After you eat your breakfast, make sure to brush your teeth again and rinse your mouth thoroughly.fruits and veggies

Breakfast can consist of fresh fruit, berries, ground flax seeds, non fat yogurt and walnuts help to sustain you for hours until lunch.

For lunch, dark green leafy lettuces such as kale, watercress, dark green outer leaves of Romaine lettuce, fresh parsley, basil and cilantro, which help to bind with heavy metals in the body allowing you to safely discard them through your colon.Adding a lean protein such as white meat chicken or turkey, wild fish (nothing farm raised), shrimp, and lobster help to complete this dish and sustain you for hours until your 4:00 pm snack time. This type of salad is perfect for you to maintain your health and wellness.

Dinner would consist of fresh lean protein that has been baked, broiled, or steamed, steamed veggies tossed with fresh squeezed citrus juice and parsley.

Eating slowly insures that you will not over eat. Your brain has time to listen to your stomach when it sends the message saying you are full and satiated.

Eating like this avoids dark circles under the eyes, dry skin patches, large pores, bloating, water retention, weak immune system, irritability, mood swings, menstrual cramps, pimples, low energy, and inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.

Labor Day Special

Dont miss out on our Labor Day Special beginning on Monday, September 5th at 8am through 11:59pm (EST) Tuesday, September 6th. Buy online and enjoy 20% off all products. This is a great opportunity to stock up on all your favorite fall products. Susan recommends you to always moisturize no matter what the season is, ensuring you keep the skin healthy and hydrated as the seasons change. By following Susan’s skincare regimen using Marine Lotion and Seawater before completing your moisturizing routine, you will keep your face looking refreshed and healthy.

If you are using Power C as a moisturizer this summer, it is time to switch to Susan’s Moisturizing Replenishing Day Cream as it will help with anti-aging and is perfect for the fall. The cooler air causes the skin to become drier, calling for a richer cream. Be sure you are also using sun block on a regular basis; the skin still needs protection against the aging ultra violet rays. Last but not least, remember to eat seasonal fruits and veggies in season to keep the body in balance.

Remember to head to our website on Labor Day to take advantage of this limited time offer!

Best Wishes,
The Ciminelli Team
