Professional Microdermabrasion vs. Microdermabrasion at Home

July 27, 2015 by Jimmy Wiktan   Comments (0)

Microdermabrasion is among the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the United States, it helps to make skin smoother and younger looking. It is used by those that feel like they need help managing their complexion. During a microdermabrasion treatment small crystals are sprayed on your skin to remove the dead, dry skin cells and reveal the younger skin cells that lie underneath.

At home microdermabrasion kits typically contain two parts. A cream or scrub that is abrasive in nature and a buffing tool that is used to apply the cream. The cream contains the same aluminum oxide crystals that are used in the professional kits but they are being administered as a cream and being manipulated by a buffing tool. In some rare cases those who use home kits find that the kit causes your skin to redden, damage, or be irritated. In extremely rare cases people will experience an allergic reaction to the home kits.

When you book an appointment with a professional you will be brought into a clinic where you can have other procedures done while you are experiencing the microdermabrasion in ottawa. At a professional microdermabrasion clinic you will have a trained professional run a handheld machine over the targeted area. The machine will spray aluminum oxide crystals over your skin. Each of these machines is equipped with a tiny vacuum that will suck up unwanted dead skin cells and the used crystals that are leftover on your skin. Some of the newest systems use a crystal tipped rod that has a built in vacuum to suck away the dead skin cells.


Depending on where you are going and what you are having done a professional microdermabrasion session will cost anywhere between $75 and $200 while a at home kit will run you around $30 per kit. The at home kits can be effective but often the professional sessions will show more results on your skin. The methods used to apply the crystals in a professional kit are stronger and more effective allowing more of the touch skin to be removed.


At home kits also require more frequent uses or else they will fade quickly. Once the initial sessions are done a professional only needs to be seen once a month while the at home kit needs to be used either a few times a week to daily. For the best results a professional is often the best option. If you want to try that home kit at first you can, then go to the professional if it is needed.
