Skin care is a multi-billion dollar industry. Department stores have large sections dedicated to skin care. Drug stores have entire aisles filled with creams, lotions and serums that promised to solve problems for all different skin types. Professionals like cosmetic dermatologists offer treatments like chemical peels and dermabrasion to help their patients get clear, beautiful skin, free of all the imperfections that plague women as they age. Spas offer less invasive services like microdermabrasion in a comfortable setting. Because these nonsurgical skin treatments do not produce permanent results, they have to be repeated and the costs can really add up.
An alternative option is to purchase a home microdermabrasion machine. A high-quality machine will produce the same results as a patient would expect from getting the treatment at a dermatologist’s office or a spa. The difference is, the one time cost of the machine is equivalent to approximately one month of professional treatments. Once a women knows how to do the microdermabrasion on herself at home, it will only take about five minutes of her time, a few times a week to get stunning results.
Some women are able to take years off of their face after they start using the microdermabrasion machine regularly. It’s important to purchase a machine that is easy to use to avoid the risk of injury. The most effective equipment includes diamond tip abrasion and suction. Devices that only scrub away the top layer of skin will not produce results like one that also provide suction to remove the old skin cells and boost collagen production. Consistency is essential when using this type of equipment. It should be used once or twice a week for the first month and then two to three times per week thereafter.
It’s easy to spend a lot of money on skin care but it isn’t necessary. Microdermabrasion machines that can be used at home make it possible to get similar results without going broke trying to look younger. There are quite a few of these machines out there so it’s important to do some research and get recommendations from trusted professionals before investing in one.
