Microdermabrasion Home Products

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular skin care treatments used to help fight aging, minimize wrinkles and erase acne scars. The microdermabrasion home products may be effective but they are not the same as the microdermabrasion machines. The products at home exfoliate the skin but not to the same extent as the machine. Although the home products can leave a temporary glow, the actual procedure removes a whole layer a skin, providing better results.

Microdermabrasion at home

Microdermabrasion home products are not the same as the microdermabrasion machines. Most of these products are using microdermabrasion crystals that exfoliate the skin, but the machine exfoliates at a deeper level, and stimulates cell turnover, lymphatic drainage, and much more. That is not to say that these products are bad, but do not expect the same result that you would get with a medical grade microdermabrasion treatment from a doctor's office.
