Starting from teen age, pimples, acne and then fine age lines, all become an inevitable part of life. It is up to us to take proper care of our skin. Home Microdermabrasion Kits are an easy and effective skincare solution.
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure. It was developed in 1985 in Italy and is fast becoming popular. This procedure effectively exfoliates dead skin to bring back the glow on the face. It is performed with the help of aluminum oxide micro crystals and specifically designed Microdermabrasion Machines. The aluminum crystals work wonders for the skin by reduce fine line, removing skin tan and lighting dark spots. It is also used for acne treatment.
Microdermabrasion Treatment is a simple process that takes no more than an hour. It was initially, strictly performed by cosmetic surgeons but now, with Home Microdermabrasion Kits available in the market, it can easily be done at home. Treatment at home is milder that that done at spas and clinics. It is cheaper too, and takes very less time.
The home kits are not as powerful and complicated as those used in clinics. But they are quite effective and generally do not have side effects. The average price of Micro Dermabrasion Kits ranges between forty to fifty dollars. Kits as expensive as 200 dollars are also available in the market. Overall, the home treatment is far more cost effective as going to a clinic would easily take around 200 dollars for a single sitting.
The home skincare kit essentially consists of a cream and an applicator, to massage the cream into the skin. Some kits even have gels and moisturizers. The cream contains aluminum oxide crystals for exfoliation.
These Microdermabrasion Crystals often cause some skin irritation. To avoid the irritation, sodium bicarbonate or baking soda is also being used in some products. It is perfectly safe and effective.
Microdermabrasion Creams are generally used on the face but one can also use it on the body. The treatment also works on reducing stretch marks and makes them lighter. The cream has to be gently rubbed on the skin and then washed with lukewarm water. Some people apply the cream just before going out for a party. This is because it gives an instant glow to the skin just after use.
Since Microdermabrasion only works on the top layer of the skin, it is not the right treatment for serious skin ailments. It works best to improve following skin conditions:
- Sun tanned skin
- Uneven texture
- Hyper pigmentation
- Superficial facial scars
- Fine lines
It is suggested that people who have sensitive skin should not use these home facial kits too often. Those with acne skin skin should also avoid its frequent use. Microdermabrasion is a strict no for people using blood thinners or Retin-A. It is advisable that they consult their doctor even before deciding on the use of Home Microdermabrasion Kits
