A Diary of my Microdermabrasion Progress

I went to a medical spa about my skin problems....

I went to a medical spa about my skin problems. Though I do not have bad acne I have red marks leftover from previous breakouts. I hate them so much! The Estitition (sorry about the spelling) told me to do six session of microdermabrasion along with light chemical peels.

Yesterday I had my first one. She cleaned my face then started the microdermabrasion. I have very sensitive skin so I was prepared for it to be painful, but it wasn't at all. It feels like a cats tongue. She did three rounds on my intire face. Then she did a light chemical peel.When I came out of the office and looked in the mirror I looked awful. The red marks were very red and I started thinking twice on the money I had just spent. She told me though that it definitelty looks worse afterwards.


First Treatment

This morning when I got up, it still looked red but had definitely calmed down a bit. My red marks do not look different though but tomarow I will see if they have at all faded.My skin is very soft though.

I will keep updating every treatment and day.

Third treament

 

Today I had my third treatment. Once again my sopts were very red afterward but the estitition say they look soo much better! I am just wondering when even after they have been rubbed on my marks will not be there.

had my fifth micro on friday(two days ago). She did it harder then ever before this time. When I went into the bathroom my redspots and face were so so so so red and my cheek where she worked the hardest had almost like a hickey on it. It scared the crap out of me. It has been two days and its getting better. Im excited to see what it looks like in a week becuase since she went so hard the red spots will probably look so much better. Wish me luck!!

Hey Ingrid, Just have a question. I also had one treatment of microderm. Well, I have red marks left after acne, and many of them are red. Do you think microderm helped you a lot? Red marks are not as noticeable as they were before? Just wondering how many treatments you had and what is the final result? If it is possible can we see the pictures to see the results? Thanks

Do you people know that you can perform dermabrasion by just rubbing your face with water and oatmeal? Practically free!
