Microdermabrasions - What's the hype?

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

If you have problems with enlarged pores, sun spots, scarring, or even fine lines and wrinkles, then I highly recommend getting a Microdermabrasion. I suffer from enlarged pores and a few scars on my face so this treatment was definitely worth a try. My pores are noticeably larger on and around my nose and I also have scarring on my cupids bow (above my lip) from popping pimples back in my middle school days. Don't pop your pimples ladies!

Wondering what a Microdermabrasion is? It's a crystal exfoliation that removes dead skin cells.  The esthetician applies the crystals and then uses an instrument to suck up the crystals and the dead skin cells. You can feel a little bit of prickling but on a scale of 1-10, I would give it a 2. No worry ladies, it's not too uncomfortable and you can still enjoy your facial experience. The suction from the instrument that is used creates a collagen plumping effect, which is one of the many benefits of that comes with a microdermabrasion.

I was quite surprised when I learned how many benefits that come with a Microdermabrasion!

Benefits include:
Reduces pore size  (I noticed this immediately)
Minimizes the appearance of fine line and wrinkles
Great for breakouts
Evens out sun spots
Resurfaces rough skin texture
Removes top layer of skin and allows products to penetrate the skin better
More vibrant looking skin

How often should you get Microdermabrasion?
It's recommended that you get a series of 6, getting them two weeks apart. The closer the treatments are, the better the results.

Anything to avoid afterwards?
Avoid direct sunlight - wear your sun screen ladies! Also, no exfoliating for 48 hours.

I loved the results from the Microdermabrasion. Right away, my pores were noticeably smaller and I had less blackheads. Also, my skin was so smooth and had a wonderful glow to it. Later that night, I went out and my make up (foundation) looked much better than it usually does. 

I really want to take care of my skin now so I still have youthful skin when I'm older, I mean who doesn't? Therefore, I plan to continue my Microdermabrasion treatments every month. The end results are totally worth it! 

Yes, it's worth the hype :)
