Skin Care Review: microdermabrasion

by Susan D., Victoria, OR Canada


improved skin tone, smoothed and tightened skin; no down time

some redness and flakiness; relatively expensive

I had six microdermabrasion treatments spread over about 3 months. Each treatment resulted in an immediate improvement in my skin tone. After about the third treatment my skin was smoother and the pores appeared smaller. The improvement is definitely subtle, but it is cumulative and seemed to carry on for several months afterward. I had hoped that I might see some improvement in lip lines and crowsfeet, but that didn't happen. For those looking for dramatic improvement, this is probably not a good choice.

The treatments were done by a nurse, who spent about 15 minutes per session giving my face a very thorough treatment. I did experience some redness and flaking skin after each session, but that only lasted a few hours.

My treatments ended about 6 months ago, but I will now book a new series of six treatments and probably go once a month

This is a good treatment to keep your face looking fresh and healthy.
