Should You Leave Microdermabrasion to the Professionals or Try It At Home?
- Posted on: Oct 15 2017
If you’re a beauty junkie, you likely flock to the beauty store as soon as a new product is released to test it out. With at-home microdermabrasion tools hitting the shelves of beauty stores like Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom, it has many people wondering if they’re worth investing a few hundred dollars in or if that money is better spent on the real thing. To help you weigh the pros and cons, we have created a brief article.
Look At What You’re Targeting
Microdermabrasion is designed with one goal in mind: to get rid of dead skin while encouraging the production of newer, more collagen filled skin in the process. With that in mind, clinical microdermabrasion is known to help reduce the appearance of sun spots, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and age spots. But, can an at-home microdermabrasion device do all of that as well? Because the crystals being used in an at-home device aren’t as powerful as the ones we use at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa, it will likely take a lot longer for you to notice a clearer more youthful looking complexion, but it can happen over time.
Similar to how you know you won’t get a Cinderella-esque ballgown by sewing a dress on your own, you won’t get the same results from microdermabrasion without the training that our staff has. One thing that many people are unaware of when they’re purchasing a product like an at-home microdermabrasion kit is that it involves technique and training. For instance, most people are unaware that when you’re using microdermabrasion, you should gently apply it to the skin without making more than one to two passes over the same area of skin at one time.
When you come into Cara Mia Medical Day Spa, our medical aestheticians have the training to help enhance the effects of microdermabrasion with specific and unique techniques— meaning that you can leave everything up to us and try to relax. Whereas if you’re doing it for the first time on yourself at home, you are more likely to cause injury to your skin.
