Benefits of Microdermabrasion
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion are many!
Microdermabrasion is a quick and painless procedure that yields both instant and lasting results with continued use. It's safe and effective for all skin types and treatments can be done in the comfort of your own home with the right tools. This is just a few of the many reasons why microdermabrasion can be beneficial to anyone looking for ways to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and give the skin a healthy glow.
Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types
Microdermabrasion is useful for treating all skin types. A regular regimen can yield results for a number of different problems ranging from the renewal of dull drab skin to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Regular treatments can help with light acne scarring and slough away dead skin cells that build up and cause the pores to become congested and clogged.
Microdermabrasion doesn't hurt
Microdermabrasion treatments are relatively painless and don't require too much recovery time. You can expect to feel some mild friction as the vacuum suction gently pulls at the skin while the diamond tip abrades the outermost layers of the skin from the face. Skin may feel tender afterward and you might experience some mild irritation. This redness and slight swelling is temporary and should dissipate in less than 24 hours.
Home microdermabrasion is quick and easy
Most microdermabrasion treatments last anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes depending on what areas of the body you are treating and how often you commit to treating those areas. With the right tools you can get he job done in just a few minutes and only a couple times per week. Please note that every persons skin is different, so it is important to start out on the lowest suction settings and only a couple sessions per week until skin adjusts to the treatments. Once you have a feel for how your skin will respond you can increase the suction power and increase the number of treatments performed each week.
Microdermabrasion at-home is cost effective
Home microdermabrasion devices have reduced the cost of microdermabarasion considerably. Dermatologist and spa salons charge up to $150.00 per session for microdermabrasion treatments, not to mention the hassle of having to set an appointment and find parking. You can perform the same treatments on your skin in the comfort of your own home for much less and get the same professional results with the proper tools and regimen. There are several different models to choose from, but I personally recommend checking out Trophy Skin's RejuvadermMD or MicrodermMD. Prices range from $199.00 to $299.00 and we back our products with a good warranty and a 60 day money back guarantee.
Of the many treatments on the market today to choose from, microdermabrasion appeals to the masses mostly because of the versatility and affordability. Treatments that used to cost thousands of dollars and require multiple visits to the dermatologist office now only require a small initial investment to obtain comparable results within minutes, in the privacy of your own home, at your own pace. It's easy to see why microdermabrasion is beneficial to such a wide variety of people who want fresh glowing skin that won't break the bank.
