Microdermabrasion is a popular skin procedure that is widely used to improve the skin’s texture, reduce acne scars, fade imperfections and smooth out scar tissue. During the treatment, small crystals are applied directly to the skin to gently remove its outer layer. Unlike the more intensive dermabrasion procedure, microdermabrasion does not require anesthesia or a clinical appointment. With recent advancements in skin-care technology, you can now get effective microdermabrasion treatments with over-the-counter kits that cost a fraction of the price of professional microdermabrasion procedures.
HEALTHandMED carries a wide selection of high-quality dermabrasion kits and machines for convenient in-home usage. Kits are ideal for first-time users because they include instructional DVDs, accessories and complementary beauty products. HEALTHandMED microdermabrasion machines from Nova, a leading brand in home dermatologic therapy, are available in a variety of features and packages. Developed with powerful ultrasonic skin scrubbers and wands, Nova’s machines rejuvenate and refresh the skin without causing pain or any other unpleasant side effects.
Dull skin, minor acne scars, mild acne, discolorations and age spots can all be treated with microdermabrasion systems at home. If you have deep-set scars or severe acne, you may need to continue long-term treatments at home or consult your dermatologist for professional help. In general, it is a good idea to talk with your doctor before starting a new skin treatment if you have sensitive skin or any medical skin conditions.
The microdermabrasion process at home can be compared in its intensity to a deep exfoliating treatment. If your skin reacts well to over-the-counter exfoliators, you should not experience any side effects. If you have sensitive skin, you might notice some dryness or minor irritation. Keep a hydrating moisturiser on hand to counter any drying effects after you are done with your treatment.
Regardless of your skin type, you should use aftercare creams to get the best results from your microdermabrasion machine. Try one of HEALTHandMED’s microdermabrasion kits to get everything you need to complete your treatment successfully. If you are more interested in buying a single machine, pair it with your favorite regenerating face serum.
