Skin Care Review: Microdermabrasion
by Chris, San Diego, CA USA
Removed flaking skin, initially smoothing, healtly coloring
Fine, bleeding scratches, some post-treatment acne.
At 38 years old, my combo skin started to develop signs of sun damage and slower skin turnover(hyperpigmentation, clogged pores, and general uneveness). A dermatologist and a local spa type practice advised that undergo a series of microdermabrasion treatments. Although I had complexion issues pre-microdermabrasion, it didn't compare to the issues that I believe were caused by the procedure. Up until then, I consistently got carded and was complicated on how young I looked. Not anymore!
I found the procedure itself to be quite violent. It felt like a sanding wheel had been taken to my face and I remember thinking, "how can this possibly be good for my skin." Angry red & swollen lines covered my entire face, but the doc assured me that this was "normal" and that follow-up treatments will result in "beautiful" results. Stupidly, I believed him and scheduled another two treatments. That was 8 months ago and I can still see the fine lines that the dermabrasion left, particularly around the cheek & eye regions and my entire complexion looks rough and bumpy, sort of like an orange peel. In short, microdermabrasion aged me dramatically and I have serious post-treament regrets.
I personally would not recommend this treatment to anyone.
