The Scoop: At-Home Vs. Professional Microdermabrasion
- Posted on: Feb 15 2017
It can be hard not to get sucked into buying products that claim to do things like “Make a professional omelette in under 10 seconds” or “Get rid of all of your wrinkles in one minute.” However, with a lot of these products that make these big claims, they simply can’t deliver the results that they say they will. With things like at-home microdermabrasion kits, it’s nice to know if you are getting ripped off or if you actually can get the healthier skin from the comfort of your home. This article will discuss the differences between at-home microdermabrasion and professional treatments. Read on to learn more.
At-Home Microdermabrasion Kits
These microdermabrasion kits have many benefits including the ability to do them whenever you want and wherever you want without having to spend as much money. Typically, at-home microdermabrasion kits come with a foam and cleanser rather than an entire machine. Filled with the same crystals as a professional microdermabrasion, the at-home option will work to slough off a little bit of your skin without leaving you with as much sensitivity or redness. However, because the strength of these solutions isn’t nearly as high, you aren’t going to get the same results.
Although professional microdermabrasion is going to cost you more money for each session, the results that you get are going to be night and day. Specifically, the machine that we use at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants has technology that is designed for all skin types and will work to get rid of the top few layers of your skin— resulting in a smoother and healthier complexion. Additionally, all of our skin care professionals have years of training, which means that you will get the most precise and consistent results possible.
Yes, it is true that you will get some small results from your at-home microdermabrasion kit, but they won’t be nearly as noticeable as the results you will get if you get your microdermabrasion done in the office.
