Honestly if people are unsure about getting a microdermabrasion, don't always go by reviews. Before I had my procedure I was scared because of what a lot of people were saying, and to be honest, it was not painful whatsoever. My skin is glowing and looks amazing. If people have severe or bad... READ MORE

I had two sessions of microderm with no results. I didn't notice a difference in anything. Just wasted my money. I decided to get microderm because my skin was uneven, blotchy and i wanted to reduce my pore sizes in my cheek area.  After the microderm my skin was red and sensitive for a... READ MORE

I have found a wonderful microderm abrasion set that comes with a renewal process for under 60.00. This review required products over 100.00 but that is really not fair to the products that cost less and are the number 1 facial cleansing products in the nation! It is fully guaranteed, so if you...

European spa aesthetician assured me treatment would be beneficial to smooth my skin, minimize wrinkles, and treatment painless. Treatment was very uncomfortable, face kept burning afterwards, puffy for days, then dark blotches appeared after skin calmed down.  Complexion looked... READ MORE

I went to a very highly recommended spa. the esthiteciant there studied in europe and has a great knowledge and good educational backgroud. HOWEVER - I am not happy with the results. I am very disappointed I spent the money on it. This is my first time, so unless my skin is going to look... READ MORE

There are better things to do than microdermabrasion. If you just have extra money I can see spending money on it but it just doesn't do anything more than get off dead skin cells and there are home products that can do that. My skin did feel good afterward but it feels good after using some... READ MORE

I get microdermabrasion every 4-6 weeks performed by a dermatology nurse at the cleveland clinic, and also get occasional peels. They use a diamond tipped machine, first a courser tip and then a finer one. I'm young and have some mild acne scaring/discoloration, enlarged/clogged pores and... READ MORE

I like the way it smoothes out my skin. READ MORE

I am a practicing Esthetician in Medford Oregon, I have been doing microdermabrasion peels on myself for about ten years and I can honestly say that I believe it has been the reason at age 49, I still love my skin! I have also done light glycolic and enzymes peels between and even along side my... READ MORE

I buy microdermabrasion treatments when they are on sale. I will pay up to $60 for it but that is tops. Often, ads will be running special for half that. I like how it gets all the dead skin cells off and makes my skin feel smooth. I don't listen to any claims beyond skin smoothing because it... READ MORE

I had three $100 treatments before considering IPL and wish I had saved my money. It felt pleasant enough, but I have better results with Retin-A and home microdermabrasion (I've tried a bunch of OTC microdermabrasion skin polishes containing aluminum oxide or other microcrystals... they...

I first had microdermabrasion done at my dermatologist's office when I was 32 or 33 years old. The first time it did feel uncomfortable, and my face was red for the day. I think I did a series of 4 instead of 6, but the results were great for the year. It really depends on the type of... READ MORE

I got my microdermabrasion in conjunction with a series of chemical peels (which were also worthless, by the way).  It didn't hurt, and it didn't improve the appearance of my skin one bit.  I think my skin looks better after I use a facial scrub than after I got microdermabrasion! READ MORE

Microderm treatments are good for me. My at-home skin care regimen consists of: cleanser, moisturizer, and eye cream, with the rare exfoliating gentle scrub. So, the microderm treatments I get are pretty much making up for the things I don't do at home. It's basically a more intense... READ MORE

I went to a spa during some special offer they had going for that month. I only paid $31.00 for the treatment. So it was worth it! I feel that my skin looked a little smoother & brighter for a few days. It does nt take away any dark spots. Not much difference, but I guess it depends on... READ MORE

It really did hurt a bit, especially if you have sensitive skin, saw no difference, have more acne now because apparently, the sucking part of the procedure brings your pore to the surface, cried a little during the micro part because it was like scraping out your face with a rock and got...

I wanted to try to get a fresher, not so tired look. My dermotologist suggested Microdermabrasion. She said it would help minimize my acne scars & leave my skin smoother and softer. It did nothing. It was only midly uncomfortable and there was no down time, but it also did no more than an at... READ MORE

Microdermabrasion did absolutely nothing for me. Didn't remove wrinkles, didn't tighten or freshen and I went weekly for a couple months. My skin looked exactly the same when I finished my 10 sessions as it did when I started. Maybe it works on someone who has skin that is criss-crossed with... READ MORE

I have been doing microderm for 2 years because I purchased a package for that length of time. It did slightly improve my skin, but so do some drug store products that cost $7.00. I would recommend seeing dermatologist and seeing what he or she might recommend for your skin. I did not do that... READ MORE

So Ihave noticed that as I get closer to 30 I have started gettuing adult acne and my skin has become greasy out of nowhere! This means large open pores, very noticeable black heads and painful pimples that swell under the skin. Having spent years looking after my skin and it looking pretty... READ MORE
