Microdermabrasion: Be Careful with Dark Sensitive Skin

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

Microdermabrasion Today

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

Better Things to Do - Plano, TX

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

Microderm Keeps my Skin Healthy and Glowing

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

Microdermabrasion is a Great Way to Polish the Skin.

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

Over Ten Years Microdermabrasion and Still Loving It!

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

For Smooth Skin

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

Microdermabrasion a Waste of Money - Sacramento, CA

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...

It Really Depends but Overall, Very Good

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

Absolutely Not Worth It! - Arcadia, CA

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

Good for Those Who Don't Do Much at Home

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

Microdermabrasion - Illinois

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 - Don't Bother - Canada

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...

Microdermabrasion - Tacoma, WA

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 - Waste of Time and Money - Michigan, MI

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

Microdermabrasion..... Im Giving It a Go the Organic Way

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

Good Ways to Remove Dead Skin

Tried microderms few times, excellent ways to shine the face, and remove dead skin. But it is certainly not the way to improve acne scars. The treatment is quick and painless. I do this once a month now as a maintainance. It can be done in less than 30 minutes, so it is very convenience... READ MORE

Not Worthwhile for Mild Skin Issues

While the procedure did leave my skin soft, it didn't have any lasting effects. I admit that I am a little obsessive about home skin care and I don't have many skin issues other than occasional dryness and freckles from sun damage. I think that for someone with my type of skin, good homecare... READ MORE

YES, YES and YES!!!!

Microderm is THE BEST thing I have done for my skin. It solves the aging and acne problems. The biggest issue is that you really need to stay out of the sun when you are getting treatments b/c your skin becomes more vulnerable b/c it is raw. So be gentle after those micro treatments. Well worth... READ MORE
