Benefits of Microdermabrasion at Home

Microdermabrasion is a relatively new procedure that didn't start appearing in the US until the early 1990s. Over the years, however, it's become one of the most popular aesthetic procedures with millions of people worldwide looking to have it done. Here we'll take a look at some of the many benefits associated with home microdermabrasion kits, and reveal why they are a better alternative to visiting a professional spa.

If you are still scratching your head trying to figure out what microdermabrasion is exactly, let me explain basically, it's the process of removing the upper layers of skin by blowing a coarse ingredient, such as crystals or diamonds, and vacuuming it up. Some of the earliest microdermabrasion methods in the past resulted in pain and discomfort, which is why the process never took off with popularity. Thanks to the changes made by Italian Dr. Mattioli, these problems were eliminated with microdermabrasion now being safe for the general public to use. When it's done correctly, you should only feel a minor tingling around the area where microdermabrasion is being performed and not any pain or discomfort.

After having a microdermabrasion procedure done, you'll immediately healthier and more youthful. Along with the outer layer of skin, the procedure also removes dirt, oil and toxins clogging your pores. You might not be able to see it, but your skin is filled with dirt and oil that affects how it looks. Over time, it can lead to larger pores, wrinkles and other skin problems. Microdermabrasion, however, works to remove the top layer of skin and any dirt and oil that's accumulated on it.

You really have two different options for having a  microdermabrasion procedure you can either visit a health spa offering microdermabrasion, or you can purchase and use a kit in the comfort of your own home. While certain spas have qualified aesthetician readily available to perform microdermabrasion, it usually doesn't come without a hefty price. Depending on the specific treatment, you can expect to spend at least a couple hundred dollars on a microdermabrasion procedure at a spa.

Alternatively, a less expensive option is to use a home microdermabrasion kit. These are packaged kits that include everything necessary to perform microdermabrasion from your own home. You don't have to worry about making appointments and paying the pricey bill at your local spa. Instead, pick up one of these kits and do the job yourself. Contrary to what some people may believe, it's actually quite easy and doesn't require any special knowledge beforehand. Just follow the instructions included with the kit and you'll be well on your way to better skin.

Another benefit to owning a home microdermabrasion kit is that it  gives you the ability to perform the procedure on friends and family members as well. Once they see your youthful skin, they will probably be asking you for your secret. If you are feeling generous, you can offer to use the microdermabrasion kit on their skin to see how they like it. Of course these are just a few of the many reasons why you should own a home microdermabrasion kit.
