You may have heard about the benefits that come with a microdermabrasion treatment. Not only can it exfoliate your skin, but it can improve dull skin, the appearance of pores, mild acne scars, and even correct slight pigmentation inconsistencies. They take only about half an hour to a full hour to complete, and they are a wonderful way to restore youthfulness to your skin!
However, how should you prepare for your treatment? To ensure you get the ultimate skincare experience, follow these tips:
- Avoid Retin-A and other glycolic acid products: These products can damage your skin when combined with a microdermabrasion treatment; this can cause large amounts of pain.
- Do not sunbathe: Avoid tanning or prolonged sun exposure beforehand. The sunburn will damage your skin and the microdermabrasion will be ineffective.
- Avoid smoking for the week before: We understand it’s hard, but it can improve the circulation in your skin. This will help your skin stay youthful and clear as it heals.
- Do not get waxed in the two weeks leading up to your appointment: This will weaken the skin and microdermabrasion can cause further damage.
After your appointment, your skin may feel a bit tender for a few days. This is normal, and you will feel fine again in about a week. Be sure to protect yourself from harsh sunlight and be sure to use a sunscreen of SPF 30 or more when outside.
