What is personal microdermabrasion?
Personal microdermabrasion removes the top layer of dead, dull skin cells. Personal microdermabrasion suctions away blackheads and pore-clogging impurities while promoting blood circulation and collagen production. At-home microdermabrasion improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and age spots, skin discolorations like melasma, and acne breakouts and scarring.
Is at home microdermabrasion safe?
At-home microdermabrasion is a safe procedure for even those with sensitive skin. However, it is important to use professional-grade heads, follow treatment instruction, and alternate suction based on comfort. Note, using a microdermabrasion device is gentler on sensitive skin than chemical or manual microdermabrasion.
Is microdermabrasion the same as exfoliating?
A personal microdermabrasion wand uses medical-grade, diamond-encrusted heads to expertly unclog and suction away dead skin cells and debris. Microdermabrasion is different than standard exfoliation because it removes inflammation-causing bacteria deep within the pores and impurities underneath the dermis as opposed to just exfoliating the surface of the skin. Microdermabrasion is also less abrasive on the skin than manual or chemical exfoliation.
Is it bad to use microdermabrasion everyday?
You can safely proceed with microdermabrasion on a regular weekly basis as part of your skincare routine. In addition to delivering more toned and younger-looking skin, fighting blemishes, and shrinking pores, microdermabrasion improves the absorption of skincare products.
