The Face Up system requires simple and rapid maintenance. The mechanical and electronic parts making up the abrasion handpiece and the machine body are unlikely to be subject to fault or breakdown. The cleaning required for compliance to patient safety hygiene requirements is quick and simple: in fact the external part of the machine can be cleaned using a clean cloth, moistened with neutral soap, dissolved in water. Should the machine require disinfection, a solution of ethylic acid and water or a liquid disinfectant is all that is needed. Furthermore, after each treatment the easy-to-fit, single-use heads are easily replaced with one simple action and are thus quickly ready for the next treatment.
Microdermabrasion using Corundum requires much less maintenance than microdermabrasion using Carbex as there are no filters to be cleaned and/or periodically replaced. The use of single-use Carbex heads, which are fitted by exerting a light pressure, without recourse to tools, means that the system is ready-to-use between one treatment and the next, reducing maintenance and cleaning times and thus allows the operator to save precious time. Furthermore, as Carbex treatment does not require a suction cycle, this means that troublesome, epidermal suction issues can be avoided. It should also be highlighted that the Carbex system is a lot quieter as it does not have the vacuum circuit required by corundum systems, thus providing increased comfort for both the operator and the patient. The carbex system prevents the diffusion of powders into the room, resulting in a cleaner treatment. Furthermore, Carbex system consumables do not require as large a storage space as that required by corundum containers, thus even small premises can hold large quantities of such consumables. The Carbex system is simple and easy to use.
The abrasive head consists of a layer of ultra-pure Carbex mineral crystals. Carbex is silicon carbon, a bio-compatible, anti-allergenic material. A sample group of this product has undergone in-depth tests and experiments, with the following result: - the product is non-irritant and non-sensitising (non allergenic);

The face appears smoother and more polished from the very first treatment, with no impurities or specific reddening. A series of 4 – 8 treatments is required for more significant results, although the number of treatments depends on the condition to be treated and on the patient's response to the procedure.
In the days following the treatment (3-5 days), it is advised:
Not to apply any ingredient containing AHA or BHA (glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acid).
To moisturize the skin repeatedly daily.
To use emollient creams with softening/soothing effects, in case of exfoliation or evident Dryness.
Not to expose oneself, even in the days before the treatment, to UVA-UVB lamps and to carefully avoid sun exposure, protecting the skin with shielding lotion containing UVA – UVB filters (titanium dioxide).
To use daily a soothing/absorbing/refreshing mask (containing clays, thermal vegetable/mineral muds, enriched by vegetable extracts, i.e. chamomile, linden, lemon balm) in case of itch, burning sensations or reddening.
It aims to eliminate or correct certain conditions of the skin originating in the epidermis and in the more superficial layers of the dermis. Face Up can eliminate or reduce conditions such as dyschromia, age spots, fine lines and scars and at the same time stimulate new collagen formation: skin appears more luminous, smooth and compact from the very first application, with evident:
