Microdermabrasion

 

What is it?

A simple and quick way to rejuvenate the skin's appearance by removing only the very top layers of damaged skin. This procedure exfoliates and resurfaces the skin in a gentle way which then promotes the formation of smoother and clearer skin. Usually done on the face and neck, but can also be done anywhere on the body like the back of hands.

What are the benefits?

  • correct uneven pigmentation, liver and/or age spots
  • give skin a smoother texture
  • help improve white heads and blackheads
  • help fade stretch marks
  • reduce fine lines

Professional vs. At Home

If you are considering microdermabrasion you have the option of getting it done by a specialist or doing it yourself at home. The biggest difference in these two options would definitely have to be the price. Second, the results you get at home may not be what you would achieve from a professional treatment.

A professional treatment on average costs between $125 - $165 for a single treatment. An at home kit can cost anywhere from about $29.95 to $200.00, and contain anywhere from 10 - 30 applications.

The difference between the actual procedure at home and through a professional procedure is the equipment used. At home kits provide the same crystals used in a professional treatment, but without the special equipment used to spray these crystals onto the face you are not going to get the same results.

This equipment sprays the crystals onto the face at different degrees of pressure and then removes the dead skin cells along with the crystals.

One of these at home kits is quite similar to using a face scrub. They will provide a deep clean but not the equivalent to a professional treatment.
