All of us desire that instant glow and young looking skin and microdermabrasion is the perfect way to get it. This newest skincare practice was first popularized by celebrities and is now gaining traction among the main population.  The good thing about microdermabrasion is the fact that you can do it from the comfort of your home.
Unlike surgical face lifts that require lots of money, microdermabrasion can be done using ingredients at home and without the trouble of going through invasive treatments. What’s more, you don’t have to visit the spa for the treatment regularly.  You can enjoy healthy, glowing, and younger looking skin for a quarter of the price by investing in an at home microdermabrasion kit. A professional microdermabrasion machine is a popular and an inexpensive choice.
If you would like to perform microdermabrasion at home, here is a step by step guide that will help you achieve that instant facelift.
Clean Your Skin
The first step to any treatment program is to thoroughly clean your skin. This helps to remove all the dirt, makeup, and oil that can lead to uneven results. You can use a cleanser or a soothing gel to relax the skin and achieve better results.
Apply the product
The next step is to leave the face damp or moist. Apply some serum or cream directly to your face or use your fingers to spread the product on your face. You should do this gently and in circular motions. This helps to get rid of the uneven grains while cleaning off any dead skin cells that are present. Ensure that you take a minute or two on this step.
Set the device
You must learn how to set your own microdermabrasion device at home. This will largely depend on the kind of machine you have. Some tools will require the use of protective gloves and glasses. Most machines are easy to use and do not need a detailed manual. Since most machines use batteries, all you need is to adjust your speed. Be sure to read the instruction manual before setting up your device.
Using the device
If you are using a machine that has a spinning dish attached or a diamond tip, you need to follow more steps. Place the wand on your skin and ensure it’s filled with Aluminum Oxide crystals to get the best results. While using the microdermabrasion machine, you’ll feel a gentle suctioning sensation. This is what creates the much needed exfoliation.
Be consistent
You have to be consistent when doing microdermabrasion at home. A repeat of five to twelve sessions gets you amazing results. You’re likely to see results within the first three times the machine is used. It’s important to spread out the treatments over a period of weeks to avoid harming the skin or causing irritation.  This is particularly important if you have sensitive skin.
Cleanse and moisturize
The final step is to clean the product and apply a moisturizer. Moisturizing is what prevents unwanted peeling and gives your skin a fresh look.
These are some of the steps you can take to perform a microdermabrasion treatment at home. Ensure that you moisturize afterwards to enjoy the long lasting effects.
