Everyone was impressed after just ONE microdermabrasion session.
My skin condition pre-microdermabrasion: Oily skin, clogged pores, occasional breakouts, post acne marks/scars, fair skin tone I got a free microdermabrasion session from a lucky draw, I didn't know what is it about so I googled it. Since it's free, why not give it a try. Result: So right after the treatment, my face became slightly red/pinkish (similar to facial extractions), and the doctor applied sunscreen on my face. A few days later my skin has improved dramatically, the redness on my nose has reduced, the mild acne marks/scars on my cheek has reduced to ALMOST non-existent. But after looking at the reviews, one thing I can notice is that microdermabrasion will result in 3 different groups. 1) Instant improvement after one session [ME] ; or 2) Improvement after multiple sessions i.e. 7-12 sessions; or 3) became worse. ***In short, it really depends on how your skin reacts to it. If you already tried many others methods like me, why not give it a try. If you already have a good skin condition, better not, as you might make it worse/aggravate. Key takeaway: 1. After doing it, minimise sun exposure (wear sunscreen, hats) 2. Don't use makeup, let your skin heal/recover from it. 3. Not every clinic/ dermatologist are the same. (Really depends on how your well your doctor does it for you) 4. Of course, home microdermabrasion will not yield as good result as going to a doctor who has the expertise in this field. 5. Microdermabrasion is considered non-invasive. You can actually search up on youtube to see what's microdermabrasion. 6. Some people might say they've done 5 treatments in 2 years. Based on doctors' recommendation, you should do every 2-5 weeks to see effective results, not 5 treatments in 2 years.
