Microdermabrasion in an extremely popular cosmetic procedure (according to the latest statistics from ASPS and ASAPS) that focuses in removing the outer layers of dead skin (skin resurfacing). Here we will present a few testimonials from real patients that tried this option:
Microdermabrasion is just a rip-off! OK, maybe I’m a bit harsh on my judgment, or maybe not everyone is of the same mind, but how would you react if you had to deal with horrible redness and expanded blood vessels after each treatment? (I managed to just have a couple of them before finally calling it off.) Some friends hinted that all those side effects can be put down to lactic acid peels (which I also have at times), but since I’ve never had any issue with those peels in the past, I can only assume that microdermabrasion is to blame. I mean, it’s just dreadful! After a month or so since my last “treatment”, the redness started to change into scarring, which has been plaguing me for 10 months! Luckily, just recently, it started to abate, and that’s the only encouraging point in all that mess. Thank God my dermatologist helped me keep a cool head and not go berserk when I saw my red face with all that flushing. She prescribed me some truly effective medications to help me fight it. If there’s something I’m definite about, it’s that I’m never going to try out a remedy like that again.
I tried microdermabrasion twice and I’m done with it already. All I had asked for was getting rid of my acne scars, but I ended up with nasty scabies and horrendous itchiness. I can’t be sure whether that is the end product of the method itself or it was just an operator’s bloomer, but the scratches on my face are real, and they can’t be doubted! It’s been a week now living this nightmare; moreover, I have to get medication to ward off infection – can it be worse than that?
I was close to decide against trying Microdermabrasion after flicking through some disheartening reviews on the method, but luckily I went for it and I feel truly rewarded! My skin looks much fresher now, as the hateful outer layers have been discharged and the newer ones that emerged have delivered a youtful new appearence. What’s more, redness and itchiness (which seem to bedevil so many Microdermabrasion patients) were minimal in my case. So, definitely approved by me!
My small piece of advice for women contemplating a cosmetic procedure like this is to be down to earth and not expect miracles from it. Under this perspective, microdermabrasion can be a gratifying option. As far as I’m concerned, my skin looks much more radiant now (not dazzling of course, but that was never meant to be the case – besides, I’m almost 45 years old!), delivering a revitalizing hue to my overall appearance. In a nutshell, if you are in search for a decent revivifying treatment, you should definitely add this method to your list; if you are looking for a full facial transformation, then chances are you’ll end up disillusioned.
I hadn’t really thought about that type of exfoliation but a member of a beauty clinic staff I visit off and on talked me into trying out Microdermabrasion. I gave it some thought, I made sure that it’s a safe method and eventually had a go at it. Well, I can’t say I’ve regretted it! In fact, I am quite pleased by the results (I’ve had 3 treatments so far) and I’m probably going to be having a couple of sessions per month in order to achieve even smoother skin. After all, Microdermabrasion isn’t exorbitantly priced – and the feeling while being treated is quite pleasant too!
I tried Microdermabrasion crystals some months ago, mixing them with water, to get a nice cleanse for my skin. Before utilizing the mixture, my face looked a bit tired and blear. After the treatment (which I performed on my own using a brush head), my skin got a much more gleaming tone which really made my day! I repeated the procedure a week or so after and the results were again very encouraging. Now my skin is smooth and sleek, spurring me on to keep using the mixture. I recommend that every woman try Microdermabrasion, as long as she doesn’t sidetrack from the guidelines; for instance, never exaggerate on the quantity of crystals (after all, even a tiny amount can be sufficient for some fine exfoliation); also, you need to be free of ailments like warts or psoriasis to be able to use the crystals. But all in all, Microdermabrasion is ideal for treating acne scars and clogged pores. Recently, I’ve been consulting a dermatologist, and he suggested that I try a combination of microdermabrasion crystals and a reliable cleanser to come up with a proper facial scour that can deliver even more impressive results. So far, it’s been effective, so why not make some more headway?
