How to Prevent Peeling and Reduce Redness After Microdermabrasion?

I am having a microdermabrasion treatment tomorrow morning, and plan to go to work Sunday afternoon. I wanted to know if there was any way to reduce redness after the procedure is done? And is it okay to wear face makeup the next day?

You will love microdermabrasion.!  It gives you redness that lasts only  a couple hours and should not last for days.  This is why they called them lunchtime peels, because you can have a one and go right back to work.  Yes you can wear makeup the next day.
