We’d like to welcome a special guest today. Lisa S., Director of Marketing for Trophy Skin, explains the benefits of at-home microdermabrasion in this blog post.
Microdermabrasion is defined as:
“a cosmetic procedure in which the top couple layers of skin are removed by light abrasion, used to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, treat hyperpigmentation and reduce or remove scars. It is more superficial than ordinary dermabrasion, does not require anesthesia and can be performed in less than an hour. The person may resume ordinary daily activities immediately afterward. Microdermabrasion works best for superficial lesions such as fine lines and age spots; deeper lesions require other treatments.”
The definition above comes from an online medical dictionary and still seems a little mysterious, doesn’t it? The purpose of this article is to help you get to know real microdermabrasion for its benefits and remove the intimidation factor that you might presently feel.
If you have ever had a microdermabrasion treatment, you no doubt felt a difference immediately. With regular treatments, you should expect a smoother complexion with a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars and the list goes on. It sounds like quite the superhero, right? It is! But not everyone has the budget for twice monthly treatments at $100+ each, not to mention scheduling valuable time, to see the great benefits of clinical microdermabrasion.
This is where a plethora of do-it-yourself choices come into play. You can opt for an inexpensive “microdermabrasion” cream that uses micro-crystals in a cream to exfoliate, but this is really just a nicely marketed scrub. You can use a traditional home machine that blasts crystals to slough off dulling skin cells, but that is messy and more trouble than it is worth. Finally, you can purchase your own microdermabrasion machine designed for home use, which is what I am going to explain today.
Home microdermabrasion systems have come a long way in the last few years, and Trophy Skin leads the pack with options to revitalize your skin beyond your expectations, depending on your lifestyle and experience. Microdermabrasion can be done at home, by anyone, in just five minutes per treatment!
- Most microdermabrasion systems now utilize diamond-tipped exfoliation technology. This method is safer and less messy than sand-blasting crystals onto the skin surface. (Note: not all diamond tips are alike. Some are made with synthetic diamond particles and not natural diamond.)
- Most home microderm machines have preset suction levels that prevent a non-expert from going too hard on their face. Because the suction level is tempered down compared to a high-powered office unit, most people are able to tolerate a home microdermabrasion treatment more often once they get used to it. Personally, I use my MicrodermMD an average of two to three times per week.
- Because a home microdermabrasion system is available 24/7, you have the ability to treat more often, at whatever time you prefer and you can use it pretty much anywhere on your body! Age spots on your hands? No problem! Cracked heels? Go for it! Rough knees and alligator skin on your legs? Give it a whirl! All the while, imagining what all of these treatments would have cost (including time spent) going to a professional.
Hopefully, by now I have you convinced that home microdermabrasion can be your secret weapon to younger, smoother skin. There is no need to be nervous! Trophy Skin microdermabrasion systems include step-by-step instructions to get you started and on your way to a radiant complexion. The MicrodermMD system even includes an exclusive LCD panel with Auto Mode that steps you through the process. There are also loads of videos online demonstrating how to use home microdermabrasion systems.
