Microdermabrasion at Home
No one can argue that the rewards you get from microdermabrasion far outweigh the cost to have it done, especially to those with damaged and aging skin. For a procedure that involves only one to two days of downtime, repeated microdermabrasion treatments at regular intervals bring tremendous benefits: it softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps smooth coarsely textured skin, reduces scarring, decreases pore size, and diminishes superficial hyperpigmentation or age spots. On top of these, it also makes it easier for your skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin. But let’s face it, $100 to $200 per treatment (experts say you need at least six to reap the rewards of this procedure) still is a lot of money, and some of us are just not prepared to pay that price.
Fortunately, there’s PMD Personal MicroDerm’s Microdermabrasion System, an at-home professional microdermabrasion kit that's easy enough for you to use on your own and gives you the same professional-quality results. Created by world-renowned esthetician Janelle Muldner and laser surgeon and dermatologist Dr. Mark Taylor, the kit contains a hand-held Personal Microderm device, six exfoliating disks (with different grits for varied intensities), face and body caps, an informational DVD and charger.
This microdermabrasion system, which uses the same aluminum oxide crystals found in your doctor's office, works in two ways. First, it exfoliates the stratum corneum, the topmost layer of the skin where dead skin cells reside. Then, the powerful vacuum suction stimulates blood flow and brings newer, healthier skin cells to the surface—revealing a smoother, clearer and younger-looking skin.
It’s the same process that yields the same results: it softens fine lines on the forehead, cheeks and around the mouth, evens out skin discoloration, suctions out clogged pores, and smoothes out the margins of acne and burn scars. The only difference is that it doesn’t cost you as much money, and that it allows you to get professional-quality treatments right in the comforts of your own home.
