After reading the previous articles you can now say that you’re a little more versed in the language of microdermabrasion than before, and you can now take what you’ve learned to bring a little more knowledge to the table when exploring microdermabrasion treatments.

Often, people aren’t aware of how frequently they should receive the treatment, but typically speaking and depending on the sensitivity of your skin, every two weeks is safe for receiving a microdermabrasion. Depending on whom you consult with, or the reaction or sensitivity of your skin it’s also been stated that “you can receive a microdermabrasion every 7 to 10 days for up to 12-15 single treatments, and most people will see visible results after 3 single treatments- and may even only have to receive just 6 single treatments before going to monthly treatments.” Monthly treatments are typically recommended for maintaining desired results and for maintaining the best results. Depending on which type of skin you have, then monthly treatments or frequent microdermabrasion treatments can harm rather than help so it becomes important when going to multiple aestheticians to be honest and speak up to tell them when your last treatment has been. It’s only your own fault when you don’t speak up, because it’s not like there’s a chip in your brain for the aesthetician to read to decipher whether you’ve had a microdermabrasion too recently.

There’s another element to be considered. What’s the difference between the medical, spa, and home microdermabrasion? Well, number one, it’s the equipment that makes the difference. The equipment used to perform a medical microdermabrasion is much more powerful than the equipment used at the spa or home, and can penetrate the skin deeper. To many that was an obvious one, but there’s many who needed to know that bit of information- and now realize there are multiple options available. For those whom don’t know which type of treatment care is best for their own skin type, it’s always a safe bet to receive a microdermabrasion at a spa because of their machines having a broad range of levels suiting the strongest to the most sensitive skin.

With such strong effects that the microdermabrasion treatment leaves on the skin the question of down time will arise, and to that question there’s little to no down time for this procedure. If your skin does appear pink for a few minutes, hours, or a day or two after the treatment don’t worry because that can be normal for specific skin types. Some patients experience no redness at all while some do, and for those who do have redness from the treatment then allow the skin to heal on its own- but if it doesn’t heal on its own “in what you think a timely manner should be” then you can use these natural substances to heal your skin: Green tea, oatmeal, and coconut oil are just three out of many that’ll assist in calming the skin, and are common things that are easy to find.

Don’t ignore your other body parts either; the treatment can be safely used for the face, neck, chest area, arms, elbows, hands, the abdomen, legs and knees, and back so don’t hesitate to fully utilize the treatment to its full benefit. Now since each article has educated you even further about the microdermabrasion process you’re more ready than ever before to begin your journey and receive the benefits that only a microdermabrasion treatment can and will provide.
