There are affordable options for those who find professional microdermabrasion becoming too expensive and are willing to try at-home, less expensive methods. The benefits of microdermabrasion are becoming more well-known, and those who have considered trying it are tempted by the convenience of using it in the privacy of their own home.
Since the home microdermabrasion kits are becoming so much more popular, more people are wanting to learn how to use them correctly. There’s also the fact that more companies that specialize in cosmetics are offering their own at home version for you. Just finding the right one to take home is a hassle all of it’s own.
Most of the time you can count on these kits to be perfectly fine and give you great results, but there are instances of side effects. There are a lot of people that don’t expect this. You really need to be aware of any skin conditions you may have before using the kits. Some of the most commonly occurring mistakes are not knowing exactly how the treatment works, what you can expect for results, or the ingredients that make up the creams that are included in the kit.
So how are you going to know which home kit is the best for you?
You have already made the decision that your skin will benefit from microdermabrasion, but you refuse to pay outrageous amounts for in-office treatments. What it all boils down to, then, is finding the right kit for you and your needs. Choices abound with a range of prices and features you can select from. Of course, price is a big factor in making your decision, but there are other important considerations to determine as well.
Not all kits produce the same results. Concentrating on your specific needs will help to determine the best kit for you. Some kits focus mainly on reforming skin tone while reducing redness. Yet there are still others that claim that while they can reform skin tone and reduce redness, they will also be able to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and help old acne scars disappear. If you want a product that can produce all of these features, look for a kit made by Dermanew or Neutrogena. These brands provide a special applicator tool or sponge for you to be able to apply the crystallized creams. Olay sells a product that is an all-in-one microdermabrasion and peel system , but doesn’t utilize an applicator, and it doesn’t offer the same results. In this kit, the cream is applied with your hand.
Something else you must take into consideration is your skin sensitivity. These at home kits have been known to cause breakouts, so some home kits like Dermanew will provide kits made just for people with sensitive skin. Some will even offer a kit for people who are apt to get acne.
The most vital part of the kit is the cream. Look for creams that include crystals made with aluminum oxide, as these are the same kinds professionals use. The crystals provide the strength to get the peel you’re looking for.
This article provides insight on what you should do to choose the correct home microdermabrasion kit for you. It will also cover some of the most common mistakes people make when using the microdermabrasion home kits for the first time. It also explains who shouldn’t even try the microdermabrasion kit at all.
