Microdermabrasion: Cosmetic Treatment At Home

Cosmetic Treatment At Home

In microdermabrasion, very tiny particles are used to brush the skin. The particles are thrown at the skin and recollected by vacuum. These particles brush/sand away the dead skin layer on the top of the skin.

Earlier, microdermabrasion was performed by doctors and beauty salons only. Now with arrivals of home-use machines, you can perform microdermabrasion of your face at home. Each treatment should typically last for 30 minutes and a weekly treatment should keep the glow on your skin.

With microdermabrasion, you will find a difference in the look of your skin. The skin will not look dull. It will look healthy and fresh. Small hyper-pigmentation spots and blemishes will disappear. Saucer-type scars will slowly fade away, and blackheads will disappear.

Microdermabrasion should not be done on pre-cancerous skin spots and keloid scars. Before you begin with microdermabrasion, discuss the details with your doctor.
