Taking care of your skin is essential. When you start taking care of your skin from an early, it helps your skin stay soft, supple and firm for longer. It helps prevent skin problems such as dryness, redness or flakiness and it also helps avoid signs of aging. Our skin is the largest organ of the body; hence it only makes sense that we take good care of it.


Know More About Microdermabrasion?
Over the years your skin goes through a lot of wear and tear, causing dead skin cells to get accumulated on the top layer of your skin. These dead cells may cause your skin to appear dull. Thankfully, you can help take off this layer of dead cells with the help of microdermabrasion. It is a form of mechanical skin exfoliation which it does with the help of a handheld device. This device is tipped with crystal or diamond chips which help to remove the dead cells from the top layer of the skin. The crystal or diamond chips create an effect on the skin which is known as “sandblasting”; the skin interprets it as a minor injury and thus, stimulates the growth of a new layer of healthy skin cells. Thus, the dead and dull layers of cells are scraped off so that your healthy and glowing skin can emerge from within.

The best part about this type of skin treatment is that although it sounds like it is a complicated task, this procedure can be easily performed at home. You do not necessarily need to go too trained professional to achieve the effects of microdermabrasion (although the results produced by them may be slightly better, and they may be able to recommend a procedure better suited to your skin type). Thanks to innovations in technology, you are now able to find at home microdermabrasion equipment in the market that has pre-set setting that prevents you from being too harsh on the skin, just like a professional.

What Can I Expect From An At-Home Microdermabrasion Kit?
If you look online, or at any stores for an at-home microdermabrasion kit, then you will find that there are several options to choose from. This can be a little confusing if you are a first-timer, and learning more about each type is essential to select one which will be able to address your skin concerns successfully.
  • Diamond Microdermabrasion Systems: These types of handheld machines have a wand with a diamond tip. A diamond tip wand gives you the highest strength, and also requires lesser chi refills. However, the most significant disadvantage of these types of machines can be their cost, as well as learning how to use them correctly.
  • Crystal Microdermabrasion Kit: As the name suggests, instead of using a diamond chip tip, these devices usually have crystals such as aluminum oxide. Hence, the cost of these devices is significantly lower, and they are a lot more portable than diamond tipped machines. However, these types of machines have an on-going cost since the crystals are depleted quite easily, and you need to replace them often. Additionally, these machines are not able to equal the power of a diamond tipped machine.
  • Cream Only Microdermabrasion Kits: These types of kits only have creams with exfoliating agents in them, and do not involve the use of any machines. Although these are the cheapest options available in terms of at-home microdermabrasion; these do not give you the results which you may be expecting. These creams work a little better than an exfoliating scrub, but in general, these do not compare to the results of microdermabrasion treatment. Their gentleness can, however, be a boon since you can include them in your daily skin care regime.
Performing The Procedure At Home:
Depending on the type of kit that you opt for, the process will be a little different for each.


Cream-Only Kit:
For a cream-only kit the procedure is fairly simple, and as mentioned earlier you can use it more frequently than machine microdermabrasion kits.

Firstly, you will want to start by cleaning your skin thoroughly. This first step stays consistent no matter what type of kit you may opt for. Ensure that your skin is free of any impurities, makeup, and dirt and that you have a fresh base to start the process.

Secondly, make sure that you face left damp after you cleanse it. When applying the product onto your damp face, you want to use your fingertips and move it gently in a circular motion to ensure that the small exfoliating agents in the cream are spread around the entire face. Continue spreading the cream around your face for 1 to 2 minutes to remove as many dead cells as you can.

Thirdly, once you are satisfied with the areas of your face covered, you will want to rinse the product off your face. Instead of removing the product harshly from your face and causing the exfoliating agents from scraping against your sensitive skin, you may want to opt for a gentle method. Use warm water to rinse the cream from your skin gently and then pat your face with a soft towel to dry it.

Finally, after the product has been rinsed off your face, you will want to apply a healing gel or a moisturizer to your skin. Although cream microdermabrasion kits are not too harsh on the skin, they can still leave your skin feeling sensitive. Hence, many cream kits will also include a healing gel as well. However, a soothing and calming moisturizer should also do the trick. Make sure that you pat the cream onto your skin until it is absorbed completely.

Machine Kits;
Whether you opt for a crystal or diamond tipped machine, the steps to use them will be the same. Before starting with machine kits, you must ensure that you read the manual or the instructions on the box clearly so that you have an idea of how you should handle the machine.

First, you want to start by cleansing your face so that you have a fresh base free of any impurities.

Second, depending on the machine that you have and the type of performance you want, you will need to adjust the settings on your machine so that it is able not to deliver the desired results.

Thirdly, before you start using the machine ensure that it is filled with aluminum oxide crystals or diamond chips to ensure that the machine can deliver the exfoliating effect. Place the wand directly on your skin before turning it on. Just as with the cream kit, you will want to use gentle circular motion on the skin, and not stay on a single patch of skin for more than a minute or two.

Finally, after you have covered the areas of your skin that you want to, turn off the machine. Then, you will want to cleanse your face with gentle foam or gel to ensure that no impurities on the skin can soak in. Follow up the cleanser with a moisturizer to make sure that your sensitive skin is taken care of.

Depending on the type of kit that you opt for, there may be a few additional steps that you may need to follow, but this article should be sufficient to give you an idea of what you can expect from your kit.

When you opt to perform microdermabrasion at home, remember that being consistent is the key to achieving results that look professional. To maintain a healthy skin regime, you need to ensure that you perform the procedure often, but not so much that your skin feels raw. Taking care of your skin after the process is also essential since your skin will be sensitive to any irritating agents. Thus, before you perform the procedure at home make sure that you equip yourself with all the knowledge that you need to take care of your skin in a safe manner.
