Microdermabrasion is a treatment that is widely available at advanced skincare clinics; however microdermabrasion is not just a treatment that is carried out professionally. Kits are now available across the UK and skin care companies such as L’Oreal and Neutrogena are producing them for consumers to use them at home.
For exfoliation and cell turnover of the skin, microdermabrasion is the perfect treatment. It works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and once the treatment has been carried out, a healthier glow will be instantly noticeable.
However, the at home microdermabrasion kits tend to be genuinely weaker than the professional treatment that we offer at ProSkin. The home kits do not effectively penetrate the skin enough and tend to just touch the surface, not removing the dead skin completely.
A typical at home microdermabrasion kit includes abrasive cream and an applicator which is used to apply the cream or scrub. You can go one step further and find a microdermabrasion machine; however these cost around £100-£200.
The creams and scrubs used for at home microdermabrasion are slightly cheaper than what you will pay at an advanced skincare clinic; however, because of this they do not have the same impact as a clinical microdermabrasion treatment.
Microdermabrasion at ProSkin clinics
Not everyone is completely aware of their skin type; and some might even have a condition they are unaware of. This can make it very difficult to just go out and purchase a microdermabrasion kit or machine.
At ProSkin Clinics we have a team of expert aestheticians that will always require you to have a skin consultation before a treatment; but this is simply so that we can ensure your skin is suited for the treatment and to give you the best chance of great results and little complication. Using a DIY kit could result in irritation to the skin and possible breakouts.
Microdermabrasion treatment at ProSkin Clinics can be used to treat a variety of different skin conditions such as wrinkles, pigmentation and milia. Our aestheticians will be able to help you treat the correct area once you have had your consultation.
Our diamond microdermabrasion treatment deeply exfoliates the skin and helps your skin restore itself to a natural glow. You will also notice a vast improvement in the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles.
Our treatment stimulates the production of collagen which helps to reveal healthy new skin cells. This results in the skin looking healthy and full of nourishment once the dead skin cells have been removed.
At home vs. the clinic
When deciding what option is best for you it is important to consider your skin condition, budget and the outcome you would like from the treatment. This will give you an idea of whether you should opt for a DIY kit or go to an advanced skincare clinic and get a treatment.
We thoroughly recommend going for a professional treatment if you want the best results. To refrain from developing any negative side effects and any unwanted breakouts and rashes, getting microdermabrasion treatments performed by experts will be the best way to go.
