What is Microdermabrasion ?

The concept of abrading the skin, or removing the upper layers, for skin rejuvenation dates back as far as 1500 BC, when Egyptian physicians used a type of sandpaper to smooth scars.

Microdermabrasion is a facial rejuvenation treatment that works by vacuuming ultra-fine aluminum oxide micro-crystals across the surface of the skin, exfoliating gently and precisely, removing dead skin cells and revealing the new softer, fresher skin below. Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of new skin cells. collagen and elastin, further improving the skin's appearance. Microdermabrasion is one of the best acne treatments. Because of the amazing results, this procedure is becoming more popular every day.

 History of Microdermabrasion 

More recently, in the early 1900's in Germany, Kromayer used rotating wheels and rasps to remove the upper layers of the skin. Because these instruments were human-powered, they were wieldy to use and therefore not used very often.

In the mid 1950's motorized wire brushes replaced their human-powered predecessors and the use of dermabrasion became more commonplace. There were many problems with dermabrasion.In a response to the risks of dermabrasion, the first microdermabrasion machine was developed in 1985 in Italy by Drs Mattioli and Brutto. This first machine was a "closed-loop" system, meaning the skin that was abraded was returned to a "dirty" container in the machine instead of being aerosolized. Microdermabrasion machines were introduced in America by Mattioli Engineering in the mid-late 1990's, and the production of microdermabrasion machines has exploded.  .

After one Microdermabrasion



 Just a note to thank you so much for the wonderful work. Your microdermabrasion process has left my face with   radiant glow and a clean, youthful feeling. My husband noticed right away. I will certainly recommend your service to friends. Greawork,Effie!!!  



 Thanks Effie,I loved getting the Microdermabrasion done, can't wait to come back and do it again. I also bought the stuff to do a mask. You are so good at what you do.
Thanks again. I will be calling you soon



I went to Creative Cuts in Holly Springs and had Effie do microdermabrasion on my face. I can't wait to go again. I felt like I was really doing something to take care of me. I loved it, and she does it at a good price too. Thanks Effie! No she is not paying me to say this.

 I have been complaining about the dullness of the skin on my face and several black heads on the tip of my nose. My friends were asking why I looked so tired when I had a good rest the night before. A friend of mine recommended getting microdermabrasion and a facial with Effie at Creative Cuts. I finally did.  Everyone there was so friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Effie worked on my face; she explained each step very well and in a way that I could understand when I eventually saw my face in the mirror, I was amazed!  My skin was glowing, the black heads on my nose were gone, and I could see a difference in the laugh lines on my face.  Effie did a great job for me and I gladly recommend her to anyone.

I struggle with adult acne, dry skin, and hypo-pigmentation. A few months ago I decided I'd give Microdermabrasion a try, after a lot of researching I chose EFfie because she had great reviews, incredible price, and is only about 30 minutes from Atlanta. I have now been to Effie for Microdermabrasion on my face and back about 6 times, and the results are definitely noticeable. Effie is kind, honest, and very knowledgeable about skin care. I am hooked and look forward to my appointment every month. I've had a great result at a great price-- totally worth the trip from Atlanta: ) Thanks Effie!


Loved Effie's Salon!

  I received a microdermabrasion and facial from Effie last month. It was a wonderful experience and an excellent value. She knows what she's doing! Calling today to set up new appointment. I highly recommend!

Terrific Experience!!


I had microdermabrasion and a facial from Effie last week. She uses the best products and explains everything she is going to do. My skin looks and feels so much better and my make-up goes on beautifully. I have made another appoint for next week and plan on continueing every 4-6 weeks with Effie.



The best experience

I go there regularly for facials and I have to tell you that it is one of the best experiences of my life. Effie is such a lovely and knowledgeable person. The natural herbal line of products that she uses leaves my skin feeling so soft and silky. The environment is so serene and the experience is so relaxing that I sometimes fall sleep:). It is the best solution to my busy and stressful life besides taking care of my skin and I recommend it to everyone


Thanks to Effie I got rid of acne and the scars!

I am 26 and I've had acne on my face and lots of acne scars on my back for years. Nothing seemed to work until I went to Effie and she gave me a great blend of treatments. I got chemical peels, facials and microdermabrasion. My skin looks AMAZING :) can’t believe something actually worked for my acne!!! Effie is very friendly and I always feel relaxed and well taken care of when I go to see her. Highly recommended!
